Half Boned Stays

These stays are based on original examples throughout the 1700s. 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 heavy white cotton, with a heavy cotton binding. 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.

    half boned stays review

    Wife says they are well made and finished just as she would like! 4 stars is actually a rave review from her, only custom fitted gear might rate a 5th star! Have a great day!

    Good Pair of Stays

    Great quality stays for the price! I dyed mine blue. I find that the easiest way to put them on is to lace them in front, then turn them around and tighten/secure shoulder straps. Gives the correct silhouette for any 18th century impression!
