VINTAGE '40s ALL RAYON SATIN LACE SLIP WITH ADORABLE BOW - NEW OLD STOCK - SIZE 36
A beautiful ‘40s vintage all rayon satin bias-cut slip - New Old Stock.
Lovely spring & summer shade of peach. It is very hard to find these old vintage slips from the 30s & 40s & this one is new. The old heavy paper size & fabric content tag is still inside. Someone just folded it up after buying it, put it away in their lingerie drawer & it sat there for decades
The slip still has the original folds in it & I did not want to steam it for the photos & take them out. There is a beautiful curved set-in bodice with the daintiest, tiniest adjustable straps with metal adjusters that you have ever seen. Satin ribbon entwined through the lace on the bodice with tiny stitches on the ribbon to keep it from twisting in the lace
There are tiny gathers in the cups for a good fit. Wonderful silky rayon satin will give you a smooth luxurious skirt. The authentic true bias slip has 2 triangle inserts at the bottom with old vintage pinked seams inside.
Just beautiful & so feminine. A wonderful piece of lingerie for a lingerie collector!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
