A striking corset body from 2017's Art Lingerie 'Un|Seelie' collection. This luxurious corset body is made from an outer shell of fine Italian floral printed jacquard silk, with jet black silk duchesse lining the garment. Hand finished black satin binding edges the bust and leglines. The garment is profusely hand embellished. French lace appliqué features a mix of hand painted chantilly, and texturally appliqued gold and silver metallic laces. Multitoned Swarovski crystals and iridescent Czech glass spikes highlight the assymetrical lace designs.
The corset opens with an intricately engraved busk clasp, with a black silk placket lining it. A mix of flat and spiral steel structures the garment. The gusset can be opened and the length adjusted with hooks and eyes. Gold toned eyelets and black cotton lacing form the centre back fastening.
This corset is a sample that has been used for two short photoshoots and has sustained some minor wear and tear: most notably, after cleaning the black silk gusset lining is slightly faded. This wear and tear is reflected in the discounted price.
The closed waist on this garment is 21", recommended for approximately a UK 8-10. The low cut of the neckline offers only demibust support and is recommended for smaller busts of 32-34", with the fullest part of the bust 7" above the waist. The exaggerated high hip cut means the hip fit is relatively free.
