Vintage 1920s Teddy Camiknickers Step-ins Yellow Cotton Slip
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This product is unavailable
This is a vintage 1920s teddy, also known as camiknickers. This 1920s teddy is made of a very light greenish yellow cotton and is detailed with pull work in four gradated rows across the bodice and also at the middle and lower sides. It has spaghetti straps and is gathered at either hip. The panty part without the top normally would be known as “step-ins”. There are no other openings except the top and the pantie bottom, which closes at the crotch with four buttons, so you would need to “step in” to this piece and then pull it up over your body or pull it over your head with the crotch unbuttoned.
Sizing: This 1920s teddy should fit a small size, but please rely on the following measurements for fit taking the style of the slip into account:
Bust: 32” around
Waist: 32” around
Hips: 50” around, but meant to fall loosely
Length: 27 1/2”, measured flat from the top of the shoulder strap to the bottom of the leg opening
Condition: This 1920s teddy is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear or stains - a bit of toning on the edge of the crotch flap, very minor, and a pinhead sized spot on the back (see last close-up photo) that I haven’t tried to remove - otherwise, this slip is in clean condition and has been well cared for and stored over the years.
This is a wonderful cotton 1920s teddy - nice example!
