There has been a long-standing debate about the authenticity of sleeveless bodices. Similar looking garments are depicted in period artwork, but it is unclear if these garments are bodices or jumps – a waistcoat-like item worn more as an undergarment than an outergarment. Because the debate continues and the prevailing opinion seems to be moving away from sleeveless bodices, we are re-positioning our French and English bodices to our costume line of clothing. Customers who are more concerned about historical accuracy should consider our Fitted Bodice or our Shortgown.

Having said that, our sleeveless bodices are now reversible! These items are great when versatility and comfort are more important than authenticity. They are made with one side in a solid-colored cotton and the other in a matching printed cotton fabric. You choose the solid color, and because the availability of our printed cottons is always changing, we’ll choose a printed fabric that will complement your choice. Your choice of solid colors is: Colonial Blue, Navy Blue, Dark Green, Brown, and Burgundy. The longer English Bodice extends over the hips. It laces in front to close. Give measurements of bust, waist, and back neck-to-waist. Made of cotton fully lined. Choose a solid color in the dropdown box. Please give measurements of bust, waist and neck to waist in back and we will choose the closest generic size.

See our measurement guide for help with obtaining proper measurements.

I was a bit nervous ordering something that would need some fitting without being able to try it on at least once, but there was no need. I followed the instructions for measuring and it fits exactly as it should.

I am very pleased with my order once again.
