Sports Corset

From the seller:

An attractive 1890’s cotton sport corset. The corset has boning just on the sides. The label reads H & W. It has a front button closure and back lacing. The lacing is original to the corset. The corset has adjustable shoulder straps. The corset is in good condition. There is some minor fraying on the binding at the top and bottom and one section of the bottom point has been cut and re-stitched. (See photo.) Bust 31 Waist 24 Hips 30 The length varies with the adjustable shoulder straps

From me:

This, ladies, was the Sports Bra of the late Victorian age.
