This stomacher has a linen ground and is quilted using yellow silk thread. The stomacher was an important part of ladies dress from the late sixteenth up to the early eighteenth centuries. It went in and out of fashion and was often incorporated into the bodice itself. - Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, Exeter
