An underbust corset with a high hip cut and dramatically cinched waist. The centre front and back panels are made of silk duchesse and lined with cotton coutil. Side panels are comprised of two layers of cotton bobbinet tulle. Cotton twill tape forms the bone channels and waist tape. The corset is structured with a mix of flat and spiral steel bones. The corset fastens with a black coated centre busk and two part eyelets at the back with cotton lacing. Silk binding is stitched by hand for an invisible exterior finish. The corset is embellished with layered precious metal leaf in gold and silver.
This corset is a sample and the finishing is not up to the usual retail standard, most notably there are some glue marks to the garment interior. This style is not suitable for tightlacing or waist training and is recommended as an occasionwear or boudoir piece.
The closed waist on this garment is 21", recommended for approximately a UK 8-10. Corsets should be worn 4-5" smaller than your natural waist size. The closed measurements of the corset are approximately 27" underbust, 20" waist and 36" hip.
