Regency Short Stays -- Custom Sized Made to Order
Made to order in your custom size, up to 40" busts. Our short stays are based on historical extant examples from the Regency period. These are appropriate for costuming the early 1800's, through the late 1820's. Regency short corsets feature steel boning throughout, English cotton coutil strength layer, white cotton sateen fashion fabric, and center back lacing with two piece nickel grommets. Short stays provide an alternative for those looking for the Regency silhouette without the constriction of a full corset. With that in mind, recommend our long stays for women with busts over 42".
The regency era saw a departure from the rigid, conical silhouettes of previous eras. Women adopted a more romantic look with a raise "empire" waistline, and began wearing corsets which emphasized and raised the curve of the bust.
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.
