    I was told by the owner they belonged to their grandmother and may be from the 1940s? I'm not entirely sure. I can't place what style they are, or if they're underwear or something else. The crotch is open and there are clips for garters I believe. IMG_0511.JPG IMG_0515.JPG IMG_0514.JPG IMG_0516.JPG IMG_0512.JPG

    Spandex wasn't invented until the late 50s.

    The union label, from what I can see, dates them to 1963-74

    I think I'd call this a panti-girdle.

    Yes, mid to late '60s. Agree with panty girdle.

    I don't think I can ever get over the shock of reading a post about something someone's grandmother owned and scrolling down to a photo of something I wore as a teenager...sigh...

    Yup...a panty girdle from the 60's...and I suspect I still have a nearly identical one upstairs in a drawer.
