001

#001 1820s-1840s Corded Stay.

Multi-sized 10 through 20.

Sarah Levitt in her book Victorians Unbuttoned says: "Nearly all women wore stays; they were essential for decency, and to go without them was to risk being considered a 'loose woman'. One also risked looking peculiar, since the popular idea of the female shape was based on the shape created by whalebone and lacing rather than nature."
