Here is a closeup of the side and rear view of the corset. As you can see, there is absolutely no lacing in the back. A very strange view, I think. Looks like something is wrong with the photo, doesn’t it?!
Both photos show that the body shaping feature seems to have been accomplished almost completely through the (sewing) pattern of the separate corset pieces and the boning, because there is no further release on the current shape possible.
Does anyone have any input on this kind of historical corset?
