Renaissance Corset with Skirt

Renaissance underwear, florentine style

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 skirt. In this listing skirt is included to price.

Comments

Samantha:

Can the skirt piece be custom ordered to be shorter than full-length?

ArmStreet team:

The custom length of the skirt is possible, just let us know the overall length from waist to bottom hem in the comments to your order.

Katie:

Hello, can this corset be worn with The Accolade set? I'm worried about not having enough support up top with just the chemise and dress. Thanks!

ArmStreet team:

The corset cannot be worn with the Accolade set, as the corset has high waistline while the Accolade dress conversely has a low waistline. You can combine the Accolade chemise with a seamless deep plunging bra.

Dani:

hi there! i'm interested in purchasing this corset and skirt combo but i need it by Halloween. is it at all doable? i see they are made to order. how soon can you have it done by October 27? thank you! Dani

ArmStreet team:

Manufacturing of the set normally takes 27-31 days, we could rush it a bit, so if you order today it would be ready by October 20. Then we can send it via UPS express mail for $15 extra which takes up to 5 business days to deliver.

Alix Primeau:

Dear Armstreet, I really love the style of this corset and skirt set. I am getting married at a medieval festival next summer and have been looking for the perfect dress. I want something like how this looks in the images you show. Would I be able to wear this as a dress or is it very obviously underwear? Would you also be able to add extras to it, such as embroidery as I also love the gold embroidery on your White Velvet Wedding Dress “The Accolade” Many thanks

ArmStreet team:

We wouldn`t recommend this kit as a separate dress, it is obviously underwear and may look strange worn as a dress. As an alternative, we would recommend you to check our Kirtle Corset Dress. It can be made of White linen, but as White linen flax is really thin, we would recommend to make it of White cotton. This way it should look great and keep its shape well. The embroidery must be designed specially for the dress.

Jennie:

Hello, can the corset be worn with the Autumn Princess Dress? I am worried that the back of the corset will come up too high and show. Thanks!

ArmStreet team:

The back of the corset should not be visible, but please note we don't recommend such a combination for the sizes bigger than our size 6 (bust bigger than 38.5 in or 98 cm, and waist over 33 in or 84 cm), because the corset will push the breasts up and the bust darts on the dress will be much lower than they should be.

Andrea Adams:

Hi! I'm wondering if this underskirt is full enough to be worn over an A-line hoop cage crinoline. Do you by any chance have any measurements for its fullness? Many thanks!!

ArmStreet team:

This skirt is not meant to be worn with crinoline, as it became widespread much later. This set belongs to the 15th century approximately.

Skirt bottom circumference is about 6 yards.

Frances:
It looks like the skirt in this Florintine style corset is detachable. Is that the case? If so, how does it attach / detach, and is the closing mechanism separate from that of the corset?
ArmStreet team:

Yes, the skirt is detachable. The skirt is laced up to the corset - there are a number of small metal loops both on the skirt and on the corset. The kit comes laced.
