Just found this lovely lingerie, and it was worth picking up because of the high quality and special features. Both have the same RN number. Maybe they weren’t sold at the same time, but let’s assume that they were sold in the same store, and not from the catalog.
Now we’ll go through the thinking process of a mid-century housewife making her decision to buy . . . . . .
Hmm . . . I really like this extra panel in the front that makes sure there will be no see-through. They both have that. Love the embroidery on the bodice – so feminine – – – both have that, too. Beige vs. white – hmm . . . . they’re both good, though the beige one seems a little more invisible, and it’s a nicer quality – just prettier somehow. The lace is a bit finer, and the fabric feels better but, wait, Oh. The white one is a Doesn’t Slip so no wonder it feels different. Hmm . . . . I don’t like it as well, but I guess that’s progress – it might be more comfortable and look better sometimes. Maybe I should get the white one, but, it’s just a little longer than the other and might show under that blue dress that I wear so much. Don’t want to fuss with trying to shorten it. Well, I guess I should buy them both. They’ll certainly work well for me and everybody needs several all the time. Not overpriced. But, I wonder what Harry will say – – Oh, well . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Just another household dilemma mastered by one of our grandmothers.
