Straight from Portobello Road, London, this stunning and unworn vintage corset girdle dates to the late 1930s or 1940s. It's a charming pink with a slight peachy hue with little pink and white hearts all over the pattern. It still has the corset strings and the elastic still is stretchy. There is a very soft fuzzy fabric along the inside waist and down the hook and eye closure to protect from rubbing.
This is most likely Swiss in origin and is marked Emile Egg, Geneve, Orthopediste, Bandagiste.
This is a small to medium and measures as follows, unstretched=
28" waist
34" hips.
The corset is curved. At shortest it's 10 3\/4", and at longest 12".
The hips don't really have much stretch to them.
Usually with historic corsets I believe you can have up to 2" spring (or gap) in the back- I'm not sure if it's the same standard for vintage corsets. I'm also not sure which is front and which is back! If someone knows, please let me know! I think the lacing goes in the back, but I also thought the hooks and eyes go in front, and they're next to each other! I guess it's whichever way is most comforatable.

This is in excellent and unworn condition. There is one teeny tiny spot on the back where it laces (probably 1\/16"), and there is a mark on the inside which does not show through to the outside. This is another one I'm sad to part with! I wish it were my size! SO fabulous!
