The garment has four panels, each of which contains a 10 ½ inch long metal stay. It is designed to shape the torso from below the bust to bottom of the stomach. The garment has a full front opening secured by 13 metal hooks and a double row of metal eyes, which allows for size adjustment.

The applicable subheading for style SP001 will be 4015.90.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for “Articles of apparel and clothing accessories (including gloves), for all purposes, of vulcanized rubber other than hard rubber: Other, Other.” The rate of duty will be 5% ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
