RE: The tariff classification of a woman’s bustier from China

Dear Ms. Antunes:

In your letter dated April 24, 2007, you requested a classification ruling on behalf of Charlotte Russe. Your sample will be returned.

Submitted sample, style #P101/1T843A, is a woman’s strapless bustier constructed from 97% polyester and 3% spandex woven fabric. The garment is snug fitting and its coverage in the front extends from the top of the bust to the waist, leaving the shoulders and upper back bare. It is secured to the body by twenty hook and eye fasteners in the front and lacing in the back. The garment features vertical stays and decorative stitching on each side of the front opening.

The applicable subheading for the style P101/1T843A will be 6211.43.0091, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for track suits, ski-suits and swimwear; other garments: other garments women’s or girls’: of man-made fibers: other.
