The Alice is designed to be worn with the long, close-fitting cuirasse bodices of the 1880s. The front panels curve around the bust and hips to accentuate the curves; it includes a center front spoon busk closure controlling the waist and lower torso. The corset has double-boning throughout: the front seams with ¼” spiral bones, the straighter, taller back with ¼” steel bones. The neckline in the front is set very low, about 1/2" above the bust line.
