Building the feminine silhouette... How?

Description There are a variety of silhouettes in the body-hugging gowns worn by women in the fine art of the late 14th and early 15th centuries in Europe. Theories abound concerning the methods used to achieve the look of these gowns -- a look that more often than not hoisted the bust to attractive heights, or at the least, gave it the appearance of comfortable support. Most intriguing of all is that there is no provable evidence for the widespread use of a supportive undergarment. How did the gowns support the bust?
