Red wool corset, 1860s. Red wool became fashionable at the end of the 1850's and was used for petticoats, cage crinolines, & corsets. I assume this was for a large-busted woman, thus no front opening and the additional straps.
Gage Downs floral corsetwaist C.1890. Gage- Downs (often abbreviated to GD) corsetwaist made from black sateen with sprigs of pink and blue flowers hand embroidered on it. Corsetwaists were hailed as a healthier alternative to a traditional boned corset. They often had high busts with shoulder straps to support the breasts and back and could either have a traditional busk front closure or buttons.

The bust and hips have boned, trangular gussets for maximum shaping and is typical of early Victorian corsetry. The corset is boned with approximately 198 whalebones of varying degrees of lengths, width and thickness.
