Late Victorian Breast Improver
From the seller:A very unique Victorian antique bust enhancer. It is made of cotton and filled with padding. It is all hand stitched. It is in very good condition. There is one tiny age spot and one pea size age spot. Width 18 Length from point to point 11 ½ inches.
In the days before plastic surgery, ladies did a much safer thing and just stuffed their bras and/or corsets.
There is a similar extant ones over at Abiti Antichi dated to the 1890's.
