This is a new item, our Underbust Bodice that laces in the front and the back, and is reversible. It has two fabric choices to show on the outside, the brown taffeta with floral accents or the black twill inside, because black goes with everything! This one measures closed at 32 inches and can go up to a 36 inch waist for cinching. You do not have to have the lacing closed to wear this garment. The dual lacing is there for maximum adjustment and comfort! This is shown with a short white chemise, and a cotton raspberry skirt, both are sold separately. The photo with one of our customers wearing the underbust bodice was taken at the Scotland County Highland games in Laurinburg, NC. She made her pouches and paired with with one of our cotton skirts for maximum comfort!
