Product Description

A corset cover is typically worn under sheer summer styles, to keep the corset from showing through the dress. They can also double as a chemisette, peaking out from under a bodice. Plain versions are meant to hide. But you can also find decorative versions. Usually, they are made of white muslin, but they can also be made of a colored silk for under dark dresses.

View A is a popular style of corset cover see in the 1860s and 1870s. It is wide on the shoulder, with a moderate low front and back. The original had many rows of lace/ribbon along the front piece, that would show under low V-Front bodices. This view works best with a lace beading with ribbon, to help fit the neckline.
