A creamy vintage nylon Van Raalte full-slip with taupe lace appliques and trimmed in sheer nylon chiffon. *swoon*
A quality piece, from the fine nylon and adjustable shoulder straps (with metal sliders) to the finishing fashion details. An off-white slip may have been a basic foundation garment (and ought to remain so!), but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be as pretty and fun as can be!
While I won’t knock a Suavette — or any vintage Van Raalte lingerie, for that matter! I must concur with her thoughts on the back of this beauty:
While many fancy Van Raalte’s Suavette line, I find this garment superior — the back is far more finished. While there are no appliques at the hem on back, just look at the beautiful touches of lace applique where the straps are attached!
