'Botanisk' Ribbon Embroidered Metallic Lace & Bobbinet Cupped Corset With Knickers - 20" Waist, 30C/30D/32B/32C Cup, UK 10 Briefs
Please read the condition description carefully, as this is a flawed sample piece and is not sewn to a retail or bespoke standard.
A cupped corset in bobbinet tulle and duchesse silk satin, overlaid with a fine French metallic lace. Hand dyed satin elastic forms decorative neckline strapping and 12 suspender straps, adjustable with gold plated components. The hips and ribcage are embellished with a mix of freehand silk ribbon embroidery and original 1910s ribbonwork motifs. The silk ribbons have been hand dyed and painted for an organic and variegated effect. The matching briefs have a silk lined gusset, plush elastic trims and have an antique ribbonwork motif at the hip.
No garment labels. The silk ribbon embroidery is not neatly finished on the garment interior. Briefly worn for a photoshoot, with the underwear washed immediately after.
20" closed waist best suited for a 24-27" natural waist. Cups best suited to a wide set 30C/32B or a shallow 30D/32C, with the underbust around 4.5" above the waistline. Closes with a 37" hip. Bobbinet is extremely flexible so this could also work for a slightly larger ribcage and hipline, or you may be able to cinch tighter than with other corset styles. The knickers are best suited to a UK 10.
