Pattern Pack A: Size XS-XXL
Pattern Pack B: Size 18-26 Plus
Redthreaded's 1780s front lacing stays pattern features a lower bust line and is shorter overall when compared to their 1750s stays pattern. This creates a conical torso with a defined waist, a lower prow-front bosom, and drawn-back shoulders—hallmarks of the fashionable silhouette of the late 18th century. The front lacing also simplifies dressing, and the closed back ensures a lovely smooth line beneath the Anglaise and Italian gowns that were so popular during this period.
