Pre-Victorian Tudor Inspired Corset

Added Apr 22, 2010

Lacey, Washingto...






This is Pre-Victorian inspired corset. The difference is that it laces up the back AND the front, and there is no busk. The boning is made out of heavy duty cut & filed zip ties, so it is less constricting than a reproduction would be but still has the stay power from the 4 layers of fabric, and I put in metal grommets where a reproduction would not have metal grommets. The outside layer is burgundy silk, with two layers of canvas cotton, and a comfortable layer of softer cotton closest to the skin. The back is laced up with wired burgundy colored ribbon – the same color as the silk, and the front is laced with leather cording. It tightens to 35" at its smallest, so it is for a little larger than normal gals. You want a corset to be at least a few inches smaller than your actual bust so you can tighten it. This corset is stiff and holds itself up, but like I said is not as stiff & constricting as it would have been if I had used a busk. It would great with a full skirt, or if worn a little bit looser would look great over a t-shirt & jeans.
