Vintage Van Raalte Lingerie with Lace Applique & Embroidery

Van Raalte was an elegant brand that was sold in the nicer department stores during the Golden Era.
Van Raalte was founded by Emanuel Van Raalte in 1913.

The fancy lace pleating of this lovely white half slip from Van Raalte drips with precious femininity. Alternating layers of sheer chiffon, scalloped lace and floral embroidered pleating hang elegantly from the bottom of the opaque tricot slip adding 12.5 inches of texture and beauty to the classic vintage style. Half slip doubles as a light petticoat under circle skirts or leave a glimpse of the elaborate hem exposed to add character to a basic dress. Original tag reads, “Van Raalte, Opaquelon.”

Vintage 1950s Van Raalte Appliqued Full Slip – Off White 50s Full Slip with Mint Green and Pink Applique Bust – Sauvette Slip – Small 32

Absolutely gorgeous 1950s full slip by Van Raalte. It is the Suavette style with beautiful appliques in mint green and pale pink. The appliques are quite prominent on the bust and are also found on the front hem as well as two small appliques on the back. It also features tulle edging on the top of the bust and around the hemline; adjustable satin straps; nylon.

Van Raalte’s half slips were often trimmed with flouncy ‘accordion pleats’ or scalloped lace edges, which are incredibly beautiful and usually cannot be found in today’s lingerie market.

50s Vintage Van Raalte Opaquelon Pleated Lace Slip
Pleats and lace are a vintage lover’s delight. This Van Raalte Opaquelon full slip features a chiffon lined lace bust adorned with matching lace trim along the V-neck and underbust. A seven inch hem of crisp pleated scalloped lace adds wonderful texture and enticing movement to the classic, collectible piece. Available in a variety of colors and sizes at Dollhouse Bettie.

The lace often was a different color than the satin of the slip (aqua blue trimmed with pink lace, green trimmed with beige lace, etc.) and some of their slips were cut in unusual cuts such as a ‘tulip cut’. These slips can be found for sale at varying prices and are sought out by vintage lingerie collector’s.
