Tasse \Tasse\, n. [OF. tassette.]
   A piece of armor for the thighs, forming an appendage to the
   ancient corselet.
   [1913 Webster]

   Note: Usually the tasse was a plate of iron swinging from the
         cuirass, but the skirts of sliding splints were also
         called by this name.
         [1913 Webster]
