1815 Regency Bodiced Petticoat

Period Correct Clothing to Fit Your Style… 

This regency bodiced petticoat was rare in period but can support a smaller bust or when a corset is not wanted. This can be a more comfortable alternative because the tightest fit is right at the underbust waistline and then raises the bust from that point. This garment combines the lift of a soft short corset and the necessary petticoat into one garment.

  • Cotton Bodiced Petticoat creates supportive underlayer
  • Machine sewn inner seams
  • Hand finished (hems, edging, and hooks and eyes)
  • Pin tucks and ruffle support hem and help it stand out to support skirts
  • Cotton was used for comfort and washability
  • This project was the first support garment I made for my Mom, who wears this for English Country, Scottish Country, and Contra Dance events. It is better than any sports bra for active wear!
  • The second one was made for another lady who wanted no part of a corset!
