This is an example of a Regency period long corset from the early 1800s. The corset is made out of drill cotton and edged with white bias tape. It laces together in front and is stiffened throughout with flexible steel boning. The long corset was preferred in the early 19th Century by women with fuller figures. Unlike the short corset, the longer length controls the tummy while still giving plenty of lift to the bust. It is cut very low in front so as not the be seen over to edge of a low cut gown. Long corsets of the Regency period are still considerably shorter than the previous and proceeding styles. They give more shoulder room than 18th Century corsets and maintain a more natural shape than hourglass Victorian corsets.
This corset can be covered in white cotton for an additional $15 if desired.
