Renaissance Corset with Skirt
Florentine style undergarment set
The Italian Renaissance undergarment corset is made of two layers of white dense flax with 13 corset bones imitating the whalebone used in those times. Dresses of the period featured short-cut bodices and the silhouette was later named an "Empire style".
However, the undergarment comes down almost to the waist and is laced on the back with the staylace.
The foundation garment is meant for peak lacing of the upper part of the stature under the dress. Corsets of the period still had no sideways bones, casings, or "underbust" cups. It stays flat. The low neckline allowed the bust to be halfway released to make it easier to breathe, on the one hand. On the other hand, that allowed to partly nude tempting curves, showing through the zephyrian semitransparent silk or linen muslin of the chemise.
Since the corset was worn next to the skin from considerations of modesty we attached a not quite historically correct white linen skirt. In this listing, the skirt is included in the price.
Historically, the Renaissance corset was a symbol of wealth and status. It was worn by noblewomen and members of the royal court and was meant to accentuate a woman's figure. To some extent, renaissance corsets changed the way people of the era were wearing their undergarments and, eventually, changed the way people were looking
