Yesterday was foggy with showers but it had a spring feel to it – finally. March has been an awful month weather-wise.
Shown: Rago Garter Belt, Style 72522. It goes up to a size 6X/42. It has six straps with metal hardware and is actually a cross between a girdle and a garter belt. Some refer to these as girdlettes. It provides some shaping, and your stockings won’t go anywhere.

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.
Vintage peignoir robe. Normally it would have come with a nightgown underneath. Typically, the gown got a lot of use, the robe, not so much. Thus, complete sets can be difficult to find. Shown here with a Playtex “I Can’t Believe it’s a Girdle” body briefer underneath. This particular robe was sold, but we do have others in our vintage section.
Christmas is now two weeks away. We’re not into the commercialism of the holidays (although lingerie sales are always a good thing) but rather enjoy some extra time off, strolls, Christmas lights, friends, family, and our old Christmas movies. Shown above is the Maidenform Comfort Devotion Body Briefer (formerly under their Flexees name) now available here again. Have a great weekend!
It’s November already! It seems like summer was just a few weeks ago. Now we’re almost into the Christmas shopping season. We’ll leave you with this today – the Rago 9357 All-in-One Open Bottom Girdle. It’s available in Black, White, Red/Black, Pink, and Mocha.
