Our Theresa stays are based on the styles of the oft-overlooked turn of the 18th century, and are designed to be worn under Mantuas and similar styles of late 17th century/early 18th century dress. Theresa creates an elongated conical shape with wide décolletage and a rigid center front. The elongated tabs are a unique feature of this era. Appropriate for 1690-1720.
