This style was fashionable from roughly 1800 - 1820, giving a smooth torso and high breasts - perfect for the empire line styles
The short stays 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:-) They are surprisingly comfortable too!
