This style is considered half-boned vs fully boned. The half-boned stays have strategically placed stiff boning to give the wearer the proper shape. These are available in durable natural colored linen, with a cotton lining. The straps are securely sewn to the inside of the stays, not the binding, so they can be easily removed without damaging the structure of the garment. These stays come with a boned stomacher as well.
