Florentine style boned linen corset
The Italian Renaissance undergarment corset is made of two layers of white dense flax with 13 corset bones imitating whalebone used in those times. Dresses of the period featured short-cut bodice and the silhouette later named "Empire style".
However, undergarment stays 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 actually flat. Low neckline allowed bust to be halfway released to make it easier to breath, 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 corset was worn next to the skin from considerations of modesty we attached not quite historically correct white linen underskirt taking advantages of the afteryears technologies.
The skirt is not included, the set of corset and skirt is available in the store.
