Boneless, lightweight, elastic form of corset which became popular as an undergarment for women in the 1920s. Covering the stomach and hips, it often had elastic side panels to hold up stockings. Gradually replaced by lighter underwear in the second half of the 20th century, the girdle has become virtually obsolete since the 1970s.
