16th Century Tudor Stays -- Custom Sized Made to Order
Custom made to order in your size. 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 add visual interest while protecting the wearer's hips from the weight of skirts. The side seams are alterable, as is the strap angle. Corsets above a 32" waist include 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.
