This elegant piece has an inimitable charm effused to any attire it is worn with. Moderate noble play of colours of high quality Italian velvet is in attractive contrast to the dull mat fabric of the dress. A bodice unlike a corset has no boning hence lets the bearer breath and move freely. However velvet is reinforced by special fabric - haircloth - which keeps fit and prevent the deformation due to tight lacing.
The bodice emphasizes waistline and tenderly folds breast - upbearing and focusing on your curves. Low stand up collar and elaborate design of the ornately shaped yoke fetch out princess aristocratical bearing. V-shaped fore lacing allows easy aidless adjustment of the tightness. Coquettish quilted “wings” sleeves and tassets with half-round scallops contribute to matchless fascination of the unisex Baroque costume.
Please pay attention that provided are the real dimensions of the bodice and not your measurements. Please, choose the size of the corsage in accordance to your under bust and waist measurements. If you have borderline measurements, choose the size according to desired fit - chose smaller size for slim fit or bigger size for loose fit.

I see that the only available color is green. Will blue ever become available again?
Hi Eleonora, please select custom size option to order blue color vest.
I had my heart set on the Red Velvet. Will it be back in stock any time soon?
Hi Cindy, we should have it back soon, but there is no ETA, unfortunately.
I would love to order this bodice in black. Is the black velvet option coming back anytime soon?
Hi Inge! You may order this vest in dark blue velvet, which is back in stock for now. It is a very deep and dark color, close to black.
Hi There, I wanted to buy this in the navy blue colour, but I notice that none of the vest are available in blue anymore. Will this change?
Hi Avery! We are happy to inform you that we have blue and green velvet back in stock.
I am looking at your vests and corsets to purchase in the future and was wondering if it would be possible to get this one in a green or brown to go with the green Autumn princess dress that I've purchased from you? (PS I love the Autumn princess dress and when I have time to take photos I plan on sending ArmStreet a few )
Hello Hana, yes this bodice is available in green velvet.
Hi there, Just wondering if this bodice can be made without the square bits at the bottom, and just be shorter instead? Regards
Hi Polina, yes it is possible.
If I have a bust of 38.5inches, and a waist of 32inches, would size 4 or 2 fit better?
Hi Eliza, size 4 should fit you nicely.
I have very broad shoulders, so I'm a little worried about this fitting across the back. How do sizes 0, 2, and 4 measure across the shoulder blades?
Our designer says that it doesn`t matter how wide the bodice is from shoulder to shoulder if it fits your underbust and waist. The corset has an arm-hole wide enough so it should fit wider shoulders as well.
Is there an option for a custom size? I recently purchased this bodice in a size 12 and it is still too small. I was hoping to order again and send my measurements for a custom fit.
This bodice can be made in fixed size only, sorry. Size 12 is the maximum unfortunately.
If I have an under bust measurement of 97 cm and a waist 92 cm which size would you recommend for that?
Size 8 should fit your measurements well, you're welcome!
So if I understand bodices correctly, in order to get a snug fit and that pretty little lacing gap that the model has, I should order a size smaller than my actual measurements? For example, if I have a 78 cm underbust and 70 cm waist, the size 2 will have a lose fit and there will be no gap in the lacing. However, if I get a size 0 I will have more control over how snugly I tie the bodice, plus have a few cm of gap between the laces. Is this right?
Yes, exactly! We recommend to take size 0 for the slim fit and lacing gap, it should fit you very well.
Hello! Would this ever become available in black? Thank you!
The bodice can be made of black velvet upon request.
Hello, I would like to know if the "Medieval Black Cotton Dress" would go under this Bodice?
Yes, both Medieval Black Cotton Dress “Lady Hunter” and Medieval Dress Fantasy Tunic should work well with this bodice.
Can this bodice be ordered in a different fabric, like ivory wool or cotton?
Nope, the bodice can be made of natural velvet only, sorry.

I got this bodice to go with my Lost Princess dress and it is a wonderful combination. The bodice laces up like a corset without uncomfortable boning. Beautiful velvet and great quality
I purchased this bodice in green to match my green "princess in exile" gown. I was hesitant at first to put green on green, but after putting them on together I'm glad I did. The velvet bodice is a rich, dark green and so it stands out nicely against the dress and gives an overall smooth, shapely silhouette. I have a 29" waist and purchased a size 2 (mind you I had a feeling 2 would be snug, but I'm in the process of losing weight so I went for it) and it is pretty snug, you can see from the picture I can't quite lace it up very tight, but that is what I expected so I am happy with it. I absolutely cannot wait until my chemise arrives! I love armstreet!
