Polish term or phrase: kaletka
Gorset ma zapięcie tzw. językowe, składające się z pięciu części wyciętych w kształt języków z dziurkami, z drugiej strony znajduje się analogiczne zapięcie z czerwonymi guziczkami. Na dole gorset zakończony jest osiemnastoma półowalnymi, ostro ścinanymi po bokach kaletkami. Środkowa tylna kaletka jest na wierzchu i od niej odchodzą po dwóch bokach pozostałe. Gorset obszyty jest niebieską lamówką (jedwabna tasiemka) oraz srebrnym szychem.

zakończenie dolnego brzegu gorsetu w kształcie szerokich zębów
The appearance of the corset has changed over the years in terms of both the cut and the materials and
ornaments used. On the basis of the preserved museum collections, we know that the oldest corsets (from
the 18th/19th century and the first half of the 19th century) were usually short with narrow straps, low cut
in the front and slightly smaller cut in the back; the line of square insets, the so-called kaletki, were sewn
onto the bottom edge and spread gracefully on the hips to emphasise the waist. The more impressive items made of valuable fabrics also featured longer styles with broader straps, a higher cut neckline and
large trapezoid insets, which constituted everything along with the back and front material.
