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.

1850-1870 There is no boning or front busk.
The fact that it is a front fastening corset with no boning and features alterations and repairs, means that it was probably worn by a poorer working woman or even a woman who worked on a farm.

Corset  Place of origin: France pos, Britain pos  Date: 1864  Maker: unknown  Materials: Silk, edged with machine-made lace, reinforced with whalebone, metal, lined with cotton twill  M no: T.169-1961  The corset was worn over the chemise and it moulded the figure of the wearer into the fashionable shape of the day: slender to curvaceous and everything in between. It did not need to be very tightly laced; the illusion of a small waist was created by the very wide circumference crinoline.

It did not need to be very tightly laced; the illusion of a small waist was created by the very wide circumference crinoline.

With the narrower silhouette, emphasis was placed on the bust, waist and hips. A corset was used to help mold the body to the desired shape. This was achieved by making the corsets longer than before, and by constructing them from separate shaped pieces of fabric. To increase rigidity, they were reinforced with many strips of whalebone, cording, or pieces of leather. Steam-molding, pateted in 1868, helped create a curvaceous contour. (2 pins)

1880s Ladies Undershirt - This would have been worn under a corset similar to ones sold today for the modern corset wearer.

Could have been used under or in place of a chemise.  http://www.metmuseum.org/Collections/search-the-collections/80037299?rpp=60=14=on=*=Underwear=806#
