Range of vintage retro girdles and open bottom girdles in the traditional 1940's and 1950's and burlesque styles. These vintage style Girdles come complete with metal clasp suspenders in a range of styles. The Open bottom girdle shapes the hips, tummy and derriere. It is a myth that wearing a girdle will make you significantly smaller but it will give you a little leeway in a too-tight dress. It also smooths out any lumps and bumps which makes an open bottom girdle ideal for wearing with a tight fitting pencil skirt or dress. Vintage lingerie sizing information & advice available.
