"MYTH" was one of Van Raalte's extra special lines of lingerie, often including unique lace or appliques. These pieces were constructed in sumptuous, ultra silky, semi sheer nylon or chiffon. A delight to wear. We just have to ask, why don't they make thing like this anymore?

My mother worked for Van Raalte for many years. I remember pieces like this one but they were called "pettipants" when they were made in the early 1960's. I loved getting VR things before they even hit the market.
