1890's Summer Corset

From the seller:

A fetching 1890’s antique cotton net lace summer corset. The corset has a front hook closure and back lacing. The lacing is original but is is broken. There is some light soiling, fraying on the top binding four of the metal stays are poking through the fabric. (See Photo.) Bust 32 Waist 23 Hips 32 Front length 14 Side length 15 Back length 16

From Me:

I love these because they do seem to be rare. They become popular as sports became popular - the netting allowing for a slight bit more movement but mostly allowing for sweat!
