Corset Cover


The corset cover is a 19th Century washable undergarment that is worn over the corset to protect it from spills and rubbing from the bones of the bodice. The corset cover buttoned center front which distinguishes it from the camisole, which didn’t button as the corset would have pushed the buttons into the skin.
