Fashion stays based on the classic Diderot illustrations, dating to about 1760-1770. However, these are a fun everyday garment inspired by historical stays!

Wear them with romantic dresses and skirts, or with your favourite pair of jeans!

Made in your choice of decorative fabrics. Pictured is a classic toile de jouy cotton print, which is available in many colours. Please contact me to discuss options!


Stays have a front lacing and shoulder straps, fastening with matching ribbons. They are lightly boned and lined in cotton coutil.  The boning I use is German synthetic whaleboning.

This item comes in standard UK sizes 6-24, please allow 6-10 weeks for completion. If you have a deadline please get in touch first to discuss!
