Fashion from 1860-1960
Background Illustrations provided by: http://edison.rutgers.edu/

I’ve been ranting and raving about underpinning a lot lately. Here’s an example of a proper corset/garment match up. 

This is a 1905 Wedding corset, and a 1910 wedding gown to accompany it. This style (narrow waist, roomy bosom, exaggerated hips) of corset would have been worn beneath that Wedding dress. 

They also wore padding in this time period. Bosom pads that lent women the ‘pigeon’ breasted look, and some wore hip pads as well (considerably more form fitting than the earlier padded bustles, but a similar principle).

    When I find a metre or two of vintage lace soft enough to not send me stimming, that top image is going to be recreated...
