My version of the late 1880’s corset from Norah Waugh’s “Corsets and crinolines” :), lined in black satin for ease of wear (satin is slippery, so you’re less likely to get friction burns!) and fully boned with spring steel, spiral steel bones and a 12" steel busk. No, I do not go to the airport wearing it.
A word to the wise – don’t bone the boob area. It pushes them into the stratosphere.
This was the 3rd corset I’d done, and for practicality’s sake, I cut it higher on the hips, but lower on the back and tum for ease of sitting and going to the loo ;p.
Come to think of it, looking at that pic of the back, it really could be cinched tighter…
