Stays and Corsets through the Regency Ye

July 7, 2013

Stays and Corsets through the Regency Years. – Stays and Corsets through the Regency Years. The word ‘Corset’ comes from the French word ‘corps’ for body.
Through the centuries, body wraps, stays, and corsets created varied silhouettes, sometimes flattening breasts and accentuating rounded hips. Or, as in the Regency years, pushing up breasts and showing off bustlines beneath square-cut and low-cut necklines. http://ow.ly/2ya6FA
