Collection: STAY LACED

The term "stays" was frequently used in English circa 1600 until the early twentieth century, and was used interchangeably with corset in the Renaissance. They were usually worn under clothes from the late 16th or early 17th century, until the end of the 18th century. Before this boned garments were called (in English at least) a ‘pair of bodies’ – for each side of the stays. 

The term "corset” was in use in the late 14th century, from the French "corset" which meant "a kind of laced bodice." The meaning of it as a "stiff supporting so constricting undergarment for the waist, worn chiefly by women to shape the figure," which dates from 1795.

Women for centuries have loved to look "snatched", and up until now that has not changed. Whilst our Creative Director has been a fan of the corset, she landed on the love for Stays, which can be worn over or under your clothing. Pair it with a pair of jeans, your favorite leggings, a button up top, a flared dress...the style points are endless!

Our goal is to always have our #SGKillas stand out in quality with a purpose.
