This style was fashionable from roughly 1800 - 1820, giving a smooth torso and high breasts - perfect for the empire line styles
The corset comes up to mid bust providing the support from below, and the breasts are contained by the chemise. it ends at a high waistline, so not as restrictive as the long line one - perfect for riding, dancing and more vigorious activities:-) Lacing all the way down the back, the purpose of the corset was not overly restricting the waistline, but just smoothing the body and provide support for the bust. They are surprisingly comfortable too!
This is our Bare Basics economy version - with modern inside finish and metal eyelets. if you would like to have one made bespoke in a more historically accurate way, please drop us a line! laout prices available in the Bespoke section.
