This corset was found in a thatched cottage in the village of Pontarddulais, West Glamorgan, Wales. Pontarddulais is an industrial settlement, but was formerly an agricultural area. The owners of the cottage discovered the corset when they were undertaking renovation work in early 2002. It was concealed behind a thick stone wall to one side of the fireplace and was found lying on soil. Following its discovery the corset was donated to the Museum of Welsh Life, St Fagans, Cardiff.
