16th Century Tudor Stays -- Ready to Ship Corset in Standard & Plus Sizing
NEW updated version in white cotton sateen fashion fabric.
These corsets are based on historical research and executed with theatrical construction techniques to bring you the silhouette and details of the 1500's with a sturdy, comfortable garment. These stays, or "pair of bodies" as they could be known in the 16th century, feature an exclusive Redthreaded wooden busk, steel boning throughout, English cotton coutil strength layer, white cotton sateen fashion fabric, and spiral center back lacing with two piece nickel grommets. Tabs at the waist protect the wearer's hips from the weight of skirts. The side seams are alterable, as is the strap angle. Plus Sizing (18-26 Womens) features additional boning for added support.
Womenswear of the Tudor and Elizabethan era is well known for the conical, straight fronted torso. This corset creates that silhouette in a range of sizes and is the perfect base for your historical costume, Tudor cosplay, Renfaire garb, or SCA impression. It would also work equally well for theatrical productions.
All Redthreaded corsets are handmade by us in our Colorado studio. Please see our other listings for custom sizing, corsetry for other historical periods, avant garde corsets, and other costume pieces.
