    • Corsets

    •  
    • From Corsets and Crinolines. These corsets form 1878-1880 reflect the change in dress style. The new long-line bodice is fashionable; for a brief time the bustle disappears completely
    • Iron corset

    •  
    • In the late fifteenth century fitted underbodies are made of heavy material. Hinged iron corsets replace the underbodies early in the sixteenth century. By mid-century some corsets are boned in patterns which follow the lines of the dress seam. To...
    • Corsets

    •  
    • The corset of 1845, reasonably comfortable above the waist, creates a rounded fullness. The tiny waist is emphasized (from Corsets and crinolines)
    • Corsets

    •  
    • By 1860 the corset is longer at the hip and a little trimmer through the torso (from Corsets and crinolines)
    • Corsets

    •  
    • From Corsets and Crinolines. Typical of 1875 is the very rounded shape of the corset and the bust pad
    • Corsets

    •  
    • From Corsets and Crinolines. The bosom sits out over the corset in 1900. The center-front busk forces the body into an S-curve. Full hips are essential to the line; sometimes padding is added to round out the silhouette
    • Bustles

    •  
    • From Corsets and Crinolines. The early bustle line, draped over the old hoop skirt, is now reshaped to a flat front with an extension in back. Gradually the extension becomes smaller and is shaped by a wire form. Sometimes stiff horsehair ruffles...
    • Nana

    •  
    • The corset is rounded at the bust and hips and shaped to a small waist. Notice the black clockwork stockings, high black French heels, and lace trimmed bloomers
    • Bustles

    •  
    • From Corsets and Crinolines. The bustle returns. This 1885 example is made of fabric boned for stiffness. Others are shelflike, jutting out sharply at the waist
    • Undergarments

    •  
    • From Gazette du Bon Ton. Corsets are reduced to a two-piece garment. The step-in lingerie and negligees are reminiscent of the First Empire
    • Seductive postcard

    •  
    • The lacy chemise and bloomers are under the corset. Black stockings, usually clocked, are considered delightfully racy compared to white ruffled petticoats. Shoes have high laces with Louis heels

    •  
    • From Sketches and cartoons. At an American horse show, women are stuffed into corsets, sporting pompadour hairstyles, boas, and other accessories (collection of the authors)
    • Courtesan

    •  
    • In spite of its corsets, variety of hoops and bolsters, Italian dress is softer, looser and more natural looking than the English. Sleeves, partlets and underskirts are interchangeable (artist unknown; Ms. 457)

    • Lady of Quality of the last century

    •  
    • Dressing for each occasion of the day is complicated and requires assistance. The chemise is knee length and untrimmed. Over it is a tightly laced corset. The front lacing is decorative; it is really laced in back. The stiffened tabs at the waist...
    • Fashion plate

    •  
    • The period corset has a low, wide neckline and tightly cinched waist. This example advertises a newly designed closure
