Furu - Pine
This unique sample corset is a replica of a 1900s midbust corset held in The Underpinnings Museum collection. You can purchase a copy of the original garment pattern here to recreate your own.
Created from a single layer of herringbone weave cotton coutil and boned with spiral steel and flat steel bones: this corset offers a dramatically curved hip and gentle bust lift, rising to just below the nipple. The front fastening is laser engraved with floral motifs by Vanyanis. It has been embellished with 3 types of French metallic leavers lace appliqué, stitched partially by machine and partially by hand. The top and bottom hems are trimmed with a delicate cotton leavers lace. The corset also has detachable centre front suspender straps, with the placement and long length inspired by Edwardian hose supporters.
This corset is a sample and the stitching is not up to the usual retail standard. 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 22", recommended for approximately a UK 10.
