A Dainty Little Collection From A Gentler Time
I adore these sweet little lingerie bags. These were used to protect your "dainties" like silk stockings and panties from snags. A long way from the way most of us probably store our pantyhose today - if we wear them at all! Maybe we would do better if we still had bags like these.
Each little bag is as silky and delicate as the items it was designed to protect. Vintage femininity.
Three have ribbon closures, one closes with a button and the pink one with the diagonal lace just folds
The last pictures shows them opened up to reveal the little pockets. The pink one with no closure has just one larger pocket so it might have been intended for something larger like a slip or cami.
