Body Belt (?) of the Romantic Era

From the seller:

From Me:

There are already a few very cool blog posts written by a lady who works with garments at the Brighton museum on body belts for men during the 1820's. My guess is this is something similar but in the late 1820's/early 1830's. The bone grommets indicate a later datee. The shape does seem to be more indicative of a woman's shape than a man's but it's very hard to tell. (Face it, we've all seen men that could use the "bro" due to their cup size being bigger than most women's.)
