Bodysuits & Corsets
In the 15th Century, French women pioneered what was then known as the 'cotte,' a tight-fitting garment situated 'on the rib.' Wealthy women in France desired thin waistlines which they achieved with stiffened linen undergarments fasteneed with front or back laces. Agnès Sorel, mistress of Charles VII of France and France's first official mistress, arguably pioneered the #freethenipple movement way back in the 1440s when she wore a corset in the French court tailored to purposefully expose her breasts. After this iconic courtyard debut, many French women began opening their bodices and the trend of the corset was officially born.
