DESIGNER LABEL: GaBar New York. There is also a blue on white ILGWU union label.
CONDITION: Very good with a few issues - there is no odors, fading, discoloration, yellowing, rips, tears, or stains. There is no crumbling or loss of firmness to the built in bra. The elasticized smocked side panels are in excellent condition with no dryness or loss of stretch.
Issues are: 1) the elastic around the panty leg openings has lost it's stretch, and 2) There is a small 3/4" half circle of missing fabric inside the back zipper placket (pictured above) which is not visible when being worn.
Very gently worn and well cared for. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear.
