Made from a strong and natural wool blend, this 16th century garment curves around the hips before meeting low over the abdomen.

- The term vest comes from the French veste (“jacket”), Italian veste (“robe”), and Latin vestis
- More commonly referred to as a “bodice”
- Bodices were often stiffened with reeds or whalebone to create a desired shape, and were worn as an outer garment (unlike corsets)
