This style was fashionable from the teens till well into 1840ties - this long line corset is great for achieving the correct period silhouette - smooth torso and high breasts.
The corset comes up to mid bust providing the support from below, and the breasts are contained by the chemise. Lacing all the way down the back, the purpose of the corset was not overly restricting the waistline, but just smoothing the body and providing support for the bust. They are surprisingly comfortable too! Putting them on can take some practice - you will need to lean forward and hold up your 'assets' quite high up! - you can see more on the layers and how to put them on here
