Description
Fully boned stays made of linen. The faun linen stays have been mounted with the white linen foundation pieces so that the stitching is visible from the outside. The stays extend longer at the centre front and back with tabs that flare over the hips. The stays lace through 22 eyelets worked onto the centre back openings.
