Bias cut satin slip, 1950s
The term bias cut has become synonymous with the glam 1930s Hollywood look. A diagonal or bias-cut garment molds to the figure, as does spandex.
The ivory satin slip is finely embellished with a lace bodice and leaf appliqués. The hem is finished with a wide band of matching lace. The label reads "Beau Monde 34".
The condition is almost excellent. The slip just shows gentle wear.
Due to the stretchy nature of bias cuts, the measurements are approximate.
It measures: 36" bust and waist, 40" hip, and 30" center-front length.
