A rare ensemble to behold, this original 1940's cream rayon sweetheart lingerie set, composed of a bra and underwear, is a true piece of fashion history and is sure to be a favourite in your collection.  

The slim rayon shoulder straps of the bra, set off the V shaped décolletage. Embellished with navy blue embroidery along each cup, framing the central double darts along the sternum. The back of the bra is finished with a central elasticated strap, and fastens along the side with 3 pearlescent buttons.

The elasticated waistline of the knickers, gathered the rayon in soft pleats below the waistline. The simple cut, is accented by embroidery along the back, completing this ensemble in a cheeky and playful design.
