    • 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...
    • 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)
    • 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
    • Corsets

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

    •  
    • An evening bodice of the late 1880s is less rounded. Fabric drapes smoothly over the corset. The armhole is in a normal position. In this example the sleeves end just above the elbow. Dress necklines most often are low and square. The choker or dog...
    • Along the Bois de Boulogne

    •  
    • From Diary of a Century. A long, narrow silhouette in a two-piece outfit. The hat looks like a lamp shade. With the appearance of the sheath corset, the skirt is tightened around the ankles to make the hobble
    • 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
    • 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
    • Lingerie

    •  
    • The corset runs from under the breast to the top of the thigh with the breasts remaining unsupported. A heavy bone runs straight down the center front with additional boning running diagonally from the sides to the center. This achieves the Grecian...
    • Chiffonelle

    •  
    • Light silk unboned corset covering undergarment. During the next decade this will be the only undergarment worn by the slim and trim (designed by Graftons)
    • Silk outfits

    •  
    • Silk and chiffon over silk with various trims in spring pastels. Note pouter pigeon breast effect. A result of the boned corset, which is worn under the breasts, is pushing the breast up and out (Atelier Bachwitz, photographer)
    • Portrait of Giovanna d' Aragona

    •  
    • A red velvet gown with soft, full sleeves, the seams caught together with pins. A beautifully embroidered chemise shows at the wide neckline and sleeve openings. The flattened bodice indicates a corset is underneath
    • 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...
    • Haymaking

    •  
    • Detail. In an imitation of the wheel farthingale and corset styles of the court, skirts are tucked up to form a peplum and vests are laced in front. The vest is an important addition to peasant dress
