    Because I regularly wear an open bottom girdle I always try to keep at least 3 on hand. As a result, when one of my older girdles bit the dust I called and ordered this model girdle for the third time. The 4519 is a terrific girdle, both valuewise and qualitywise. Though I always order this girdle one size smaller than my hips would indicate it is still a very, very comfortable girdle which is also gently supportive. Open bottom girdles are becoming increasingly harder to find so I hope that National will continue to stock this wonderful style. And the National stockings, item # 900 are a great complement to this girdle.

    I recently purchased a black girdle from National. The portion of the garters that attach to my stockings are flimsy and very difficult to attach. In fact,this morning I put on the girdle and gave up when one of the garters fell apart. I purchased the same girdle in white a few months earlier and the garters are easy to attach. Both girdles fit well and are quite comfortable. Comfort is important to me because I wear a girdle almost every day.

        this is a must have item for vintage outfits to be built from. Beautifully lightly shapes, the six garters do a magnificent job of firmly holding up my nylons and not allowing them to shift around. The sheen of the material helps me get into tighter outfits more quickly and has a real gorgeous appeal to it. Absolutely a fully functional and sexy garment.

          Comments about Gartered Open Bottom Girdle by Venus® Cortland Foundations®:

          I have only relatively recently switched to wearing gartered open bottom girdles with stockings having worn suspender belts previously and wish I had done so much sooner. This is a very comfortable, easy to wear item and my only criticism is that the garter clips have a relatively cheapish feel but at this price point I am hardly complaining and the garter clips work well and are easy to fix and slide. I rate this product highly because having 6 garters to hold up stockings is so much better than 4 and I would strongly recommend those who love wearing stockings to go with a 6 clip over a 4 clip item. I actually have just ordered a size smaller than my original order (a 34/35 to replace a 36/37) so maybe the item does run a little large but only just. Great product which I intend to use regulalrly as I wearing compression stockings at work everyday and need something comfortable and easy to wear to keep them up. Well done National for selling this item!!

              Comments about Gartered Open Bottom Girdle by Venus® Cortland Foundations®:

              my hubby bought this for me; I was looking for a new open-bottom girdle. I prefer girdles with six garters. I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised. A very smooth, comfortable fabric!

              It fits wonderfully, yet is firm. Not extra firm to the point of being uncomfortable, but firm enough for that gentle control one seeks in an OBG. Stays put, doesn't drop, shift, roll or creep. It's comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time. I like that it doesn't have bulky seams (which could show through my clothes).

              The metallic garter grips are a HUGE plus. Plastic garters don't last for "all-day" wear (maybe OK for romantic lingerie) but an all-day foundation needs metal garter grips. Having six garters is the biggest selling point on this girdle. LOVE IT. HIGHLY recommended for any stocking wearer.

                  Garters are placed for ease of use and hold stockings securely. Note they are NOT adjustable. I wanted something functional that feels sexy and this does.

                                I recently purchased a black girdle from National. The portion of the garters that attach to my stockings are flimsy and very difficult to attach. In fact,this morning I put on the girdle and gave up when one of the garters fell apart. I purchased the same girdle in white a few months earlier and the garters are easy to attach. Both girdles fit well and are quite comfortable. Comfort is important to me because I wear a girdle almost every day.

                                    I wear it to support my stomach as I have a large unrepairable hernia - it works very well.

                                          The product 4519 in the past has been great. Recently the garter tabs have been downgraged and are not of the same quality or size of the ones in the past. Recently I purchased a new garment and one of the garters came completely off the garment the 2nd time I wore it. Shopnational quickly replaced the garment so no worries except garter down grade.

                                            For the times I like to feel a bit more special and wear garted stockings this is a great girdle. The support this girdle gives is wonderful. Holds you together in all the rigt places and is figure flattering.
