1770 ca. Corset, Possibly European. Silk, silk ribbon, and whalebone.
‘Stays were obligatory for “strait-laced” woman of 18th century, and associated with respectability and high social status, but also held an erotic allure. In France, the toilette, semi-public ritual of dressing and undressing, included putting on corset. Stays with sleeves are rare, and may indicate that this corset was part of an at-home ensemble.” fashionmuseum.fitnyc.edu
