Condition:  The overall condition is poor. There are many areas where the plastic layers is separating causing opaque white bubbles. It is cracked at the center front neckline, upper front chest and abdomen. The left side closure is broken off and has evidence of being repaired using hot glue. Some of the round plastic discs are missing along the bottom.    The stated overall condition of the lot is based on the assumption that the wear is consistent with age and use. As everything is sold 'as is', we suggest that you request a more detailed condition report and additional photo. This can be obtained via the INQUIRE button or by email at couturecr@lesliehindman.com. Condition is a matter of opinion and should not be treated as a statement of fact.
