This is a classic, vintage Promise by Poirette High-Waist Open Bottom Girdle. It was one of the better girdles of its time. It’s not listed at the moment but will be at some point.
Can you believe we’re half-way through July? The summer is going way too fast! Have a wonderful weekend and make the most of it!
Add a lot of style and curve appeal with the Gossard Retrolution Shaper Slip – a modern take on a classic open corselette (or all-in-one open bottom girdle here in the US). Just add stockings!
Have a safe and happy long weekend. Most importantly, don’t forget those men and women who gave their lives in service to this country. May you always be remembered.
Happy Veteran’s Day to all of you vets out there. Thank you for your service to our country.

The 18-Hour girdle was Playtex’s last generation of rubber girdles and was made with a much sturdier rubber blend called Spanette. It was introduced about 1967 and was widely advertised in print and on television during the late 60’s and into the 70’s. Actress Jane Russell was a spokesperson for many years for both the bra and the girdle. The brief is shown here. Spanette is actually still used in the classic 18 Hour Bra. The entire girdle line is long gone. The girdles were actually quite comfortable. However, despite the tiny air holes, they could get very warm. The material was also rather dense and heavy. It wasn’t something you’d want to wear in the hot summer sun. Ironically, they also made a swimsuit line out of the same fabric.
This lovely bodysuit/shaper also comes in black or nude. It has a low plunge bra section and a thong back.
