An overbust corset in a single layer of silk/cotton satin, intricately embellished with hand stitched layers of French chantilly leavers lace, beaded lace, freshwater pearls and ostrich feather plumes.
The centre front and back of the corset are re-enforced with cotton coutil. Flat felled seams encase a mix of synthetic baleen and flat steel bones. Two part gold toned eyelets and cotton lacing form the centre back fastening.
This corset is a sample and the interior has a few chalk marks but is otherwise in impeccable condition. This is an occasionwear piece, not recommended for tightlacing or waist training. A similar design, if created as a bespoke garment, would cost around 70,000NOK.
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 36" bust, 20" waist and 36" hip.
