Our Goddess Bodice is based, in part, on historical research into Elizabethan corsets. While a corset is an undergarment, this bodice is built with all the sturdiness, boning and shaping power without having to wear two items.

We have taken some liberties with history, however, so you should not consider this a historically accurate item.

The Goddess Bodice is an extremely adjustable, comfortable and uninhibiting bodice. The steel boning is carefully placed to provide a flattering shape and maximum support for your assets, be they great or small.

You should feel comfortable enough to engage in any faire activity, whether shopping or riding on horseback. The Goddess Bodice is the result of several years of testing various designs "in the field". This design has proven itself during numerous activities including grueling 14 hour work days in extreme heat and cold while sword fighting, singing and dancing.

We feel confident that you will fall in love with it as we have!

The fabric is a thick and luxurious burgundy chenille brocade. It's super soft to the touch and has a woven leafy pattern.

Made to fit your measurements. We will need Bust, Ribcage/Underbust, Waist, Hip & Side Seam Measurements.

Choose your bias trim color: Berry, Black, Blue, Brown, Claret, Cream, Gray, Green, Purple, Red, Royal Blue, Spice or White.

Specifications:

• Bone casings sewn on inside of lining to prevent boning from damaging bodice fabric and easily accessible for repairs.

Frequently asked questions about OddBodkinShop

Bodices can be spot cleaned with upholstery cleaner or mild soap and lukewarm water. Check for colorfastness on a hidden area first. Febreez and air out your bodice if it gets musty smelling. Use a steamer for cleaning/pressing.

If your bodice is particularly dirty, try to remove most of the mud/mess while it's dry with a stiff brush. Then, hang in the shower, spray with lukewarm water, and let drip dry.

Dry cleaning or machine washing is NOT recommended. Use these same directions for doublets.

Chemises, skirts, bloomers, pants, shirts, etc can be machine washed in warm water on permanent press, then machine dry on low until damp, then hang to dry completely. Iron can be used on poly blend setting.

For other garments, email.

Odd Bodkin is a one woman show, so wholesale is not available.
I love doing custom orders! Email with your ideas and pictures and we can collaborate or call and make an appointment if you are in Houston. You can come into the studio, touch the fabric and make all the decisions! No worries! I'll walk you through it either through email or in person.
Rush orders are on a case by case basis and may require an additional fee for a guaranteed ship by/in hand date. Please give me as much time as possible to make your garb!
None of my bodices are reversible. They way they are constructed allows me (or my clients) to easily repair broken boning strips and prevents permanent damage to the fabric if/when the boning wears through the bone casing.

Metal is always going to win against fabric eventually, and by making bodices this way, I can extend the life of the bodice for many years.
