2 viewsA late Edwardian "long-line" style corset, made in a lovely off-white 100% fine cotton coutil jacquard woven with tiny leaf "sprays". This fabric very closely replicated the typical cottons used in corsets of this era. Four silk garters were fashioned to match the silk satin ribbon at the corset top. Boned throughout with European plastic (nylon) professional corsetry boning, a strong, reliable (and washable) alternative to steel.

Corset front detail2 viewsThis corset was custom-made to order for a larger wearer, in a beautiful pastel pink 100% cotton jacquard with a pretty floral motif woven throughout. European plastic (nylon) professional corsetry boning was used, and 4 fancy silk garters were made to match the silk bow and ribbon along the top.

The decorative lace at top is a vintage cotton Valenciennes type in an ivory colour that toned in perfectly with the pink cotton.
