Three pairs of empire-style stays made up by a blogger and Regency costumer following her brilliant research on what we call “short stays,” which she describes as a term referring to the location of the waist (contemporary definition) rather than the length of the garment (current definition).

I highly encourage you to read through her blog (with text in German and English) - it’s profoundly informative, and sheds new light on the undergarments of our turn-of-the-nineteenth-century ancestors. Quite amazing information she’s unearthed!
