Can't help you jetgirl, but I just had a really great girdle buying experience that I wanted to share. I bought 2 girdles, labeled as vintage, from OrchardCorset.com, and I can't recommend them more highly. I ordered an OBG and a "girdlette" (basically a firm control deep garter belt), got ridiculous deals on both, paid all of $1 more than normal shipping to have them expedited, and received them today, only three days after I ordered. They were shipped from Washington state to Florida - I really wasn't expecting them til next week! I ordered the same size I wear in my modern Rago, and they both fit beautifully. I'll be using OrchardCorset for all my girdle needs from here on out!
