This is our 18th Century Stays item with 18 pieces of boning. most of which are steel flex boning, and only two poly flex pieces at the back closure. This is laced with braided cording, but can be laced with ribbon if you prefer at no charge. This item has two fabric choices for you to pick from, and will take 4-6 weeks to complete, possibly longer during our busy schedules in the spring and fall seasons. This is what would be worn under your bodice or jacket and over the shift. Once laced on it will give you a lovely shape and posture.
