SAMPLE Lyra bronze metallic fringe mid-bust corset - 20" waist, UK 6-8
A sample corset from the 2016 'Celestial Bodies' collection, the 'Lyra' is based on a Victorian corset shape with a rounded hip and mid-bust top line. Constructed in a single layer of black herringbone coutil with twill bone channels, a twill waist tape and a mix of spiral and flat steel boning throughout, and two part eyelets at the centre back. Top and bottom edges are trimmed with petersham ribbon. Long black and bronze fringe extends from the top edge, giving this piece an exquisite tactile quality and sense of movement. Overall sound construction, with a few minor stitch wobbles and a few snagged fringe threads, though this is not noticeable when worn. Fastens with lacing up the centre back. Has a 20" closed waist with approximately a 29 inch hip and 24 inch underbust (recommended to be worn with a gap in the lacing). People with shorter torsos may find that this corset rises above the bust line and gives a 'push up' effect. Will come with a matching fringed eye mask/blindfold.
This style is a sample piece or second and is therefore either faulty or not sewn to a usual retail standard. This is reflected in the lower price.
