The Lace Up Bodice
Meticulously made from linen and lined with cotton for ultimate comfort, this bodice offers a perfect blend of style and functionality. With boning in the back seam and both sides of the front opening, it provides the essential structure for a flattering fit. The pre-shaped sleeves elegantly end at the elbow, adding a touch of grace to your ensemble.
Delivered with two matching linen stomachers, our historical costume is a complete and versatile garment that will transport you to the world of historical fashion.
The petticoat consists of fabric panels, connected at the sides while leaving the upper ends open on each side. This design enables easy wearing of the skirt.
The panels of this historical petticoat feature 18th-century-style pleats. At the front, pleats extend towards the sides, while at the back, they converge in the middle. In the photos, the petticoat is worn over a bustle pad, which adds volume to the hips and accentuates the waist's slenderness.

Finding the Right Size:
Please refer to the size chart to select the correct size for your bodice. Keep in mind that an historical costume doesn't follow standard sizing, so getting an accurate fit is important for comfort and effectiveness. Here's a complete guide on how to measure yourself.
If your measurements don't align with the sizes on the chart, we recommend choosing the "custom size" option. After placing your order, submit your measurements through our Custom Request Form as soon as possible. Delay in receiving your measurements will also delay your order.
Made-to-order items cannot be returned. Please make sure you're certain about the size you choose. If unsure, opt for the custom fit option.
