- subject matching 'Fashion Plates: Bodices - Bodices à la Sévigné'
Pleated folds crossing the bosom nearly horizontally, divided by a central bone in the lining down to the waist, influenced by the bodices seen in portraits of Marie de Rabutin-Chantal, Marquise de Sévigné (1626-1696); worn from the 1820s. The term was used more broadly in the '30s and after to include folds that dipped to a central point.
