Stays are an 18th C. essential to achieve a period correct shape. In contrast to its baroque ancestors these stays are designed to push the bust up and shape a nicely rounded décolleté which silenced many a critic of the revealing rococo styles. Our pattern is based on Diderot’s original illustrations.
The stays are made from 2 layers of 100% cotton coutil, reinforced with german quality steel boning. They can be ordered laced in the back OR front and back (both historically correct) with 100% cotton corset laces and stitched or metal eyelets. See variations below! The colour of the shoulder strap ties can vary!
