Bodices made their appearance in the late Middle Ages and are still a staple of traditional folk fashion to this day. They give the upper body the desired shape and can be worn both under and over the outer clothing. Compared to corsets, bodices (also called corsages back in the days) are less stiff and much comfortable to wear.
Our lace-up bodice is made of cotton fabric woven in a twill weave and lined with a thin cotton layer. The added bottom hem - which slightly tapers down at the centre front - emphasises the waistline in a lovely manner and creates a nice, flush transition with the underlying garment. The lacing at the front and at the lower back allows for a perfect, individual fit. The tie strings are equipped with metal tips that greatly facilitate the threading through the eyelets.
When combined with a blouse, a skirt and matching accessories, this bodice is ideal for the portrayal of a maidservant or a female pirate.

How to find the right size:
To take your body measurements correctly in order to determine you clothing size, please always wrap the measuring tape horizontally around your body at the fullest part. For tops, sizes are based on your chest circumference. If you happen to fall between two sizes, we recommend that you go up a size. Ease is included in the pattern and reflected in the finished measurements.
Delivery includes the bodice only! The other items pictured above are available separately in our online shop.
As authentic as possible, as modern as necessary!
This medieval bodice is part of Battle-Merchant's line of period clothing and medieval garments for men, women and children. From the first sketch to the last stitch, this garment was planned, designed and handcrafted with particular attention to detail. Our clothes are modeled (sometimes accurately, sometimes less so) on historical examples, grave finds and original museum pieces where they exist. We always endeavour to keep the necessary adjustments to today's standards, e.g. in terms of size and manufacturing process, to a minimum. Just see for yourself!

Endlich eine Weste, die nicht nur gut passt, sondern auch noch gut aussieht und preiswert ist!
Leider dauert das An-und Ausziehen etwas länger, denn ich muss mich erst ans Fädeln gewöhnen. Es geht durch die Bänder-Spitzen aber vergleichsweise schnell! Sehr zu empfehlen für Bäuerin/Magd im Mittelalter oder Hobbit-Dame.
