Rare 1940s black lace long-line bustier by Nelie Bologna. Sheer black lace bullet bra cups with under-cup reinforcement panels. Body has 10 flat, flexible bones, a 7" wide elasticized center back panel and 3/4" wide waistline tape for added definition. While not a corset, the line of this bustier is corset-like in that it is longer than most bustiers of the era (16" at sides) and flares out at the hips. The back center panel is 8" long; low back plunge & ends just above buttocks. 15 heavy duty hook & eye front closure. Fully lined in sheer black fabric. Frilly black lace trim along hemline. A sassy little burlesque number for the vintage lingerie collector.
