Wedding dress and veil, 1830-33 US, LACMA
Of course! I’ve posted things from private collections before.
I wanted an outlet for all the time I spent exploring fashion history resources. Before, I would show a friend a nice dress I found and go on and on about how great it was and they’d just smile and nod. They’re probably relieved that I’m not pushing dresses in their face anymore. lol
This is the only place I know of.
Stays were worn while riding, but they had minimal boning to allow for movement. Either way, I rode horses for years and can’t imagine having to wear a corset while the horse is doing anything other than walking!
You’ll have to be a little more specific because there are a lot like that. Do you remember the shape?
