No Surprise Here
This should come as a surprise to no one:
Although, just to prove what a clotheshorse I really am, I will note that the corsets question was biased against people who aren't doing 16th C. Stays aren't appropriate under 15th C Burgundian snob wear! (Displaying my 16th-C ignorance, too -- stays is the 18th C term. In the 16th C the garment was called what? a pair of bodies or something like that?). At any rate, I won't wear corsetry by any name just to look good because it will look bad under my court clothes. So there.
