The Crown company was one of the longest lasting US girdle manufacturers; sadly they went out of business in 2012, although some of their products may still be available if you look around. This girdlette could be viewed as either a deep garter belt or a short OBG (open bottom girdle). It is nine inches high at the side. The four garters are adjustable. The fabric is a fairly firm lace powernet with a satin support panel in the center front. I have included a picture from the web to show how it looks on a live model.
