View of Corset as Worn (over Chemise)0 viewsEdwardian corsets were always worn over a fine batiste chemise, never directly against the skin. Later in the Edwardian era, women began to use all-in-one's (combinations) that were basically a chemise and bloomers made up as one garment that could be worn under the corset, rather than wearing a separate pair of bloomers under the chemise. These "combinations" allowed for a sleeker, slimmer line under the new columnar styles of 1910-12.

Corset front detail1 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.
