This is a wonderful pair of vintage “tap pants” (panties / underwear) made by Stanfield’s under their “Novasilk” brand. Stanfield’s is a vulnerable Canadian manufacturer of underwear, founded in 1870 at the Truro, Nova Scotia Woolen mills. They close on the side at the waistline with two buttons and have a short elasticized band at the back waist that provides a bit of fit stretch. I’ve posed them with a DuBarry bra that is dated 1947, being sold separately.
Sizing: Size “M” for medium is indicated - please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Waist: 29” around unstretched, 31” fully stretched.
Hips: 40” around, should fit loosely
Length: 19” at the centre
Condition: These look like they were never used, they are in excellent condition and have been well stored over the years.
This is a wonderful pair of vintage tap pants - nice simple lines, quality fabric and clean look, unusual to find in this type of condition!
