ca. 1730 Grafin Orzelska by Rosalba Carriera (Gemaldegalerie Alte Meiseter, Dresden)

Countess Orzelska's bodice has two parts. The first covers her back and the sides of her front. The sides are marked by bands of cloth - revers. The other part of her bodice fits between the revers and covers her front - the stomacher. The stomacher is decorated with flowers and what appear to be bows.
