Merchant Bodice


A slightly higher class level than our plain Bodice.  This lovely bodice is made in a heavy cotton twill with peplums (waist) and epaulets (shoulders). The epaulets can help keep shoulders from getting sunburned! Great for merchant class or low nobility for Renaissance Festivals. 

As is standard with our bodices, it is made of heavy, washable cotton twill with boning next to the lacing to avoid unseemly bunching. All seams are reinforced to withstand the rigors of wenching. The non-embroidered "liner" side comes standard in black. Other color options for the "liner" side may be requested via email after ordering, please include your order number. 

  • Made in 100% cotton fabric and is machine washable. 
  • Removable Sleeve Options are available. Pictures below. Sleeves would tie in under the epaulets.
  • To ensure a properly fitted garment, please give us your Measurements in the Special Instructions. Measuring chart and form available via email.
  • For a fancier, more noble look, velveteen is available by Special Order. Special Orders my result in additional costs. Please contact us for more details.
  • Also available with knotwork as our Celtic Merchant Bodice. 
  • Our garments are not massed produced.  Each one is hand made to your specifications here in the USA and our quality takes time.  This means it will take 4 to 6 weeks to get your order to you.  July through November orders may run over 8 weeks due to our show schedule.   Occasionally we can manage rush orders or MAY have the item in stock, please contact us before ordering.  Thank you for taking this into consideration when placing your order.
