Lovely Edwardian Bodice Top

From the seller:

Original Victorian lacy bustier (frayed)

From Me:

No, seriously, that's all the seller wrote. No measurements. No how they got it. Not condition details. Heck, not even one of those "paypal only!" 13 paragraphs of legalese.

Now, of course, we know it's not a bustier. I'm not sure how the seller came to that conclusion. (Bodice people, bodice!)

Based on how short the bodice is, the lace details, the way the inside is constructed (boning visible, stitch lines look like a sewing machine was used), and the netting, I'm going with a late 1900's, early 1910's era evening bodice - leaning towards the early 1910's.
