*Made in sturdy cotton duck canvals and top layer in strong cotton twill print , with period correct pattern, Very rare fabric! This fabric is the survivor of our garage fire a few years back, it survived with minimum damage and has been washed - so tested in fire and water and emerging victorious! The price of the set is lower due to the second hand nature of the fabric, orignally it was rather pricey...
*bound with green cotton bias.
* linen ties at the shoulder straps and at the back.
* spiral lacing - eyelets made by hand
* bones with sythetic whalebone - sturdy and mimicking the qualities of the original whalebone well.
* for economy's sake, the inside fiish is modern - do contact us if you would like bespoke clothing made using original Georgian techniques! Bespoke stays like these start from £350.
Stays close at chest - 32", waist 26", side length 7. best suited to natural measurements of chest 34-38, waist 28-30. Here shown on a size 12-14 ( 34F) - a bit too small, though still ok with probably a longer lace.
Stays, just like corsets, should be comfortable and not restrict your movement. It will take a few wears for the bones to mould to your body, so please do not lace too tight!
