Bustle Era (?) Corset

From the seller:


Waist 29" Bust 33"

Totally wearable

Very Good/Perfect Condition

Tulle de Coton baleiné et bordé sur le décolleté d'un ruban de satin bleu ciel dans une dentelle aux fuseau. Busc a crochets a têtes de cygne le premier en haut marque LOUVRE, celui du bas marqué "Phénix" avec patte d'accrochage et de maintien du jupon

From Me:

My really bad translation:

Cotton tulle, whalebone, and a border under the neckline in a blue satin ribbon with bobbin lace. Busk with hooks that has a swan's head at the top and marked "LOUVRE", the bottom marked "Phoenix" with a skirt support

...Sorry! I took Latin and Spanish in High School!

This is a summer corset with the thin summer weight fabric making up the corset. I actually think this is later than 1875 but we'll keep it there for now.
