This gorgeous peach 1940s suspender belt (or garter belt for my American friends!) is New Old Stock from France and in lovely condition. It's nice to find one that isn't a full-on girdle - great for dancing or summer weather - and it has a lovely brocade tulip pattern on a very firm Coutil base. The only stretch is a small section of elastic at the back that fastens to two peach buttons. Lovely wide slightly ruffled elastic suspenders with sturdy metal and rubber clips at the bottom.

Perfect for your seamed stockings!

Label: There are some printed numbers, and a pencilled number on the inside (price?) but no label.

Size: medium to large: about a UK 12-14 or US 8-10.

Measurements:
Waist: at rest measures from 27" to 28 1/2" depending on which buttonhole you use. With the elastic at the back stretched, the largest waist measurement is 30 1/2".

I'd therefore recommend for a WAIST of 27 1/2" to 30 1/2".

Depth at sides is 2 3/4". Depth at front to top of elastic is 6". From waist to end of stretched suspender is 12 1/2"

Condition: Excellent. Clean, strong, sound and wearable. There are a few tiny rust spots (see pictures) and two of the chromed suspender clips have a touch of rust on them (worst shown). The rubber part of the suspender seems sound and the clips work well. Elastic is strong an stretchy.
