About our 12th Century Stomacher 


A medieval solution to the corset! This broad, body-shaping and enhancing garment was unique to the mid-12th century and often worn with an otherwise loose-fitting gown. Back-lacing, made in raw silk, interlined with stiffener for shapely fit shape and available in a wide variety of colors.

Size Chart 


Size Waist Measurements
Small 19-28" / 48-71cm
Medium 28-37" / 71-94cm
Large 38-47" / 97-119cm

Note: In our women's clothes we've abandoned 'standard', modern sizing because it is far from standard, and tends to cause more confusion than provide accurate information. So, please judge your size by your chest and waist measurements. We do not give hip measurements because the gown flares dramatically at the hip and is so generously sized there that fit is not an issue at that point. A range of fit is given for each size because the lacings and placket in the back start at the top and extend to below the hip providing flexibility within each size as well as a near perfect fit to each individual within that size range. The gowns run long with a small train so that you can wear them in the authentic fashion of the period - trailing along the ground or hem it to your desired length.
