    Women's History Month Exhibit

    "Why Did Women Wear That?" 
    For centuries, it was the norm for women and girls to wear stays or corsets. During the Revolutionary War, these back-lacing garments encased the body in a hard, form-fitted shell which limited movement and comfort. This exhibit explores how stays were made, what they were made of, and answers the question on everyone's mind: why did women wear them?
