The Bust Bodice

If you’ve read The Moonlight Mistress, you know that Lucilla, rather than a corset or brassiere, wears a bust bodice. Below, a picture of a bust bodice.

Some models reached as low as the waist, and some were worn in addition to corsets. They were popular through the 1920s.

    Is that like a bra? It doesn't look very supportive.

    It has boning and fits snugly – it's sort of an intermediate step between the corset and the brassiere.
