The label on this girdle has the following information:
Vanity Fair Style 51-5
Front Panel – All Nylon
Elastic – Nylon & Spandex
This girdle is semi-sheer, but has appliqued lace diamond on the front panel, and a double layer diamond on the back panel. There are 6 ribbon garter straps with metal and rubber garters.
Since Vanity Fair is still in business, we contacted them to see if they could help date this girdle. They were nice enough to respond, and after seeing photos of the girdle and label, they dated it to around 1962.
