Florentine Style Corset

Linen underwear 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.

Saga:

Is the Renaissance Underwear Florentine Style Corset in size 0 going to get back in stock sometime soon? Normally i would be a size 2 but your sizes on the size chart seems really big, or have i just misinterpet something? If so i would love to get the size 0 and 2 measurements on the corset. Thanks :)

ArmStreet team:

At the moment we can`t tell when the size 0 will be back in stock, sorry.
Our size chart is indeed different from US, EU and UK systems. You can email us your chest, waist and under bust circumferences and we'll check which size should fit you best.

Jade:

Would the natural linen be okay for use as a main dress? I was hoping to get something that could be worn on its own, or as an undergarment. It's such a beautiful piece.

ArmStreet team:

This set in natural color can be worn as a main dress, though we recommend choosing more saturated colors for this purpose. Please be sure to mention this in a comment to your order, and we'll make it of thicker linen to avoid resemblance to the underwear. No extra for this.

Abigail:

Hello- I am looking to purchase a size 4 of the florentine style corset (without skirt). Do you have an estimate for when it will be back in stock? Thank you!

ArmStreet team:

Restocking time frames vary. While we cannot provide any accurate information about when the size 4 will be back in stock, sorry. Please note, that you always can order it in custom size (made to order).

Amanda:

When ordering fixed sizes, should the size chosen represent the closest to our natural measurements, or should we choose the size that represents our natural measurements minus a few inches?

ArmStreet team:

Please choose that size which is closest to your actual body measurements.

Adelanor:

Do you substract inches from the measure we send you to create the perfect florentine style corset? Thanks!

ArmStreet:

Yes, since the width of the corset at the waist must be less than your real waist circumference (otherwise the corset makes no sense, and you won't get such an effect as in the photos).
We need your actual body measurements - please do not substract any inches by yourself.

mallory:
what type of boning is used in this?
ArmStreet team:

We use plastic bones for all our corsets.

Aminaa Mashbat:

Hello. Can you give me an advice, is it can be used not like underwear , but just like a dress?

ArmStreet team:

If you want to wear it as a main dress, I'd recommend to choose some different color or to use white cotton. It's thicker, heavier and keeps the shape better.

Monique:
That girl is the most beautiful model in the beauties made in armstreet. Someday i'll buy one of this masterpieces...
ArmStreet team:

We will give her your compliments! Always welcome to ArmStreet!
