Boned velvet waist cincher, late 19th century
The Victorian waist cincher, meant to be worn like an exterior corset, is fashioned from black velvet and is lined with black silk. It has ten rows of bones between the layers to hold in your tummy and closes with three hooks.
The condition is excellent and wearable.
It measures: 28 1/2" circumference, 8" wide at the front point, 7" wide at the back point, and 2 1/4" wide between the points.
