There's nothing quite like corsetry-quality satin to produce an elegant foundation. It looks fabulous and clothes ride easily across the shiny surfaces. Oddly, however, it is not universally popular with women since it is a 'cold' material, however, when these garments on display here were made, men ruled the corsetry world and men do love satin on their women. This is described in some detail elsewhere on this site.

 

 

The majority of these fabulous garments come from the Ivy Leaf Collection.
