    The simple chemise-like garment of the early 19th century was worn over a chemise and petticoat -- and a corset, if she was over 17 years or a size A bust. The fashionable silhouette cannot be achieved if the bounce remains when the dancing stops. The long corset went out of fashion for a while, but came back with a vengeance.

    The goal of this type of corset was not to reduce the waist, but to push up the bust. Reviewers complained that the fashionable lady's bosom looked like a shelf aimed toward her chin. Others claimed her anatomy pointed east and west, instead of north.

    A variation available is that of the riding corset, with eyelets in place of the second hip gusset. This option allows for greater adjustability in the hip area.
