Description

These Regency style front fastening short stays are ideal for achieving the Regency era silhouette or 'shelf' look and are a must have item of underpinnings for any Regency lady's wardrobe.

The stays are made from 100% white cotton coutil for maximum support with bust gussets to lift and enhance the cleavage.
The double stitched seams add durability and drawstring along the top edge allows the neckline to be drawn in for added security and coverage.
The stays have steel boning to add to the support and fasten with laces at the centre front.

Please note these stays are not lined. If you would like them lined please convo me.

The standard centre front length from between the bust points is approx 6".

These stays are historically to be worn over a cotton chemise, which will add longevity. These are available to purchase separately in my Etsy shop.

The stays can be hand washed, line dried and ironed into shape. Due to the metal boning, they are not to be left wet for long periods of time.

**For more authenticity I offer a fully hand-stitched option of these stays complete with hand-stitched eyelets - Please convo for more info as they will be more expensive and take longer to make**

Please measure and order your underbust measurement then choose your normal modern bra UK cup size. If you are unsure of which size to order please convo me and I will do my best to advise.

Please allow up to 3 weeks for your bespoke custom made stays to be delivered. I do offer a rush-order option depending on my schedule.

Standard shipping is by Royal Mail 1st Class Recorded for UK customers to ensure your garment reaches you in perfect condition.

My order was for a regency chemise, stays, petticoat and ballgown. They were for me to wear to a Regency ball.

Becky is very quick to answer queries, and is very helpful. I didn't know entirely what I wanted for my dress so she was able to offer advice, and came up with lots of options for me to choose from. She regular updates, including photos as she went along.
All of the pieces are beautifully made, are comfortable and look gorgeous. I will be able to wear them at Regency events for years to come!

I received lots of compliments at the ball; both on the authentic look and how stunning the dress was.

I recommend Becky wholeheartedly for Regency dresses, stays and undergarments, and wouldn't hesitate to buy from her again.
