  • Corset cover, 1900–1910
    American
    Cotton
    Purchase, Hoechst Fiber Industries Gift, 1982 (1982.316.8)

    This corset cover reveals the ideal "monobosom" of the turn-of-the-twentieth-century silhouette. The support for the bust is set very low and there is no use of gussets beneath that might serve to articulate them as two separate entities.
