This is a reproduction of a vintage Renaissance corset known as the Dorothea Bodies. The corset is made out of drill and edged with white bias tape. It laces together in back and adjusts at the shoulders. It is stiffened in throughout with flexible steel boning. The Dorothea Bodies (corsets were called a “Pair of Bodies” in the Renaissance) omits boning in the bust to allow for more breathing room. I adapted this corset from the original design so the boning runs down into the tabs at the waist to keep it from pinching. This corset can also be covered in a colored cotton for an additional $15 or dupioni silk for an additional $20.

**For a more historical look, hand bound eyelets (instead of metal grommets) can be added to any order for an additional $25! An example of these are shown in pic #5! **
