18th Century Wedding Stays by Cuddlyparrot 18th Century Wedding Stays by Cuddlyparrot
18th Century Wedding Stays

These stays feature a higher back, longer back point, curved tabs, and most dramatically, hidden front lacing and a reversible, decorative stomacher panel. They are extensively machine quilted and embroidered. The stomacher is held in place with lacing through decorative pewter lacers. This particular example is going to be used as the foundation of an 18th century wedding gown, and has the wedding date and our names embroidered on the silk charmeuse lining of the front panel. It is shown here paired with a matching modesty petticoat.

This is so beautiful - the color is wonderful, no doubt, but the fit and gracefulness of it just makes it stunning!!

May I ask, is every one of those lines boned, or is it just in certain places? I've been researching making an early 18th century corset for myself, and keep finding conflicting information :O

It should have boning throughout but it is actually just quilted to look like the boning is smaller. So it actually is done with 1/4" steel. I've since made a pair fully boned throughout with reed.
