Cherry Bomb is the 1976 hit song from the debut album from The Runaways. The Runaways were an American, all female rock band featuring Cherie Currie, Joan Jett, Lita Ford, Jackie Fox, and Sandy West. Written by Runaways manager Kim Fowley and guitarist Joan Jett, the song was a play on the name of their lead singer Cherie Currie who was just 16 when the song was released.
This vintage 3 piece bustier set made me think of Cherie Currie when I put it all together! The vintage 1980s hot rod red bustier was created by Barb Robinson and is tagged a 32C. AMAZING red and gold lace adorn the front with gold chain wrapping across the bustline and a beaded gold tassel at the front center. The back features delicate red lace and has hook and eye closures. The underslip is a 1950s vintage white nylon tricot half slip with crystal pleated lace trim made by Florelee. The top layer is a 1950s vintage white and candy apple red raw edge crinoline. This 3 piece set is exquisite, beautiful, and in EXCELLENT condition. Measurements are as follows:
White Under Slip: Waist: 26" with perfect elastic stretch; Length: 29"
Crinoline Skirt: Waist: 26" with perfect elastic stretch; Length: 27"
