An overbust corset in a single layer of silk/cotton satin, intricately embellished with symmetrically placed and hand stitched layers of French leavers lace. The base lace has a base tulle of aubergine with lilac highlights, with a scalloped edge at the neckline and a flounced skirt at the bottom hem. This is then overlaid with metallic silver lace.
Several hundred freshwater pearls are hand strung on cotton floss, with each strand finished with a silver lobster clasp. Silver jump rings have been strategically stitched into the lace design, to which the beaded strands can be arranged or detached.
The centre front and back of the corset are re-enforced with cotton coutil. Bone channels are made of cotton twill tape, with a mixture of flat steel and synthetic baleen bones structuring the garments. Two part silver eyelets and cotton lacing form the centre back fastening.
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. A similar design, if created as a bespoke garment, would cost around 70,000NOK.
The closed waist on this garment is 20", 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 34" bust, 20" waist and 34" hip.
