This suspender belt uses a truly exquisite lace that can't be accurately depicted with photos or words: A fine white French chantilly lace has been hand re-embroidered with pale pink and white threads, with white glass seed beads, bugle beads and fine sequins. This was initially intended as part of the designer's personal wedding trousseau.
The suspender has a body and lining of stretch silk satin, with a central panel and hip flounces of beaded lace. The central lace panel has been carefully appliquéd to a fine beige tulle for additional support. Oversized gold rings at the strap points are finished with 2 suspender straps, making for a total of 8 straps on this belt. All adjusters and clips are gold plated. The suspender closes with hooks and eyes in the centre back.
Please note that this style is a sample and the finishing is not up to usual retail standards.There are a couple of noteworthy flaws: a small pull to the silk at the front of the body, and the back suspender points have flawed stitching. Please see the product photos for more details of these flaws.
The elastic strapping is a slightly different shade of white to the strapping used on the matching bralet. A similar design made as a custom order would cost in the region of 10.000NOK.
This listing is for the suspender belt shown in the photos, and does not include the knickers or garter straps. A bralet and high leg briefs are also available. A small amount of this lace remains, so matching coordinates can be custom made.
This suspender belt is intended to fit at the natural waist, and is best suited for a larger UK 10 or a UK 12. The silk has some stretch so the fit is relatively flexible.
