#500 Flapper Step-In Underwear
Just like it's nineteenth century cousin, our #707 mid-nineteenth century chemise, this 1920's chemise can be worn under a corset. Yes, they wore corsets during the Flapper era. Just like today, not all women followed the latest fashion, especially women who had worn corsets in their youth. Woman with mature figures would have found it difficult to wear the light weight undergarments fashionable during the 1920's. Young women with slight figures could wear the bandeau and forgo corsets or girdles and wear their chemises over their bandeau. The drawers close with a tab in the seat that buttons from back to front.
