Talk about extreme wasp waists for women! They occurred in The Gilded Age: think "The Age of Innocence", " The Importance of Being Ernest", or "A Doll's House".

This corset was conceived with these theatre productions and films in mind. It is designed to be worn with the long, close-fitting cuirasse bodices of the 1880s. The front panels allow a generous fullness in the bust and hips while the waist is nipped in. This accentuates the extreme curves required of this era. Patterned for the modern body and without tight lacing, we are still able to achieve this pronounced curviness.

For the convenience of donning the corset by yourself we have included a center front opening spoon busk closure. The spoon busk is made of steel and the lower portion is 2.5" wide and shaped to give the wearer extra control holding in the waist and lower torso. There is double-boning throughout this corset: the front seams with 1/4" spiral bones, the straighter, taller back with 5/16” steel bones.

This corset is made of in a black satin Coutil.
(Contact me for other available satin coutil fabric colors- pink, peach, white, burgundy, wine, dusty rose)

The fabric has been pre-washed so you can hand wash your corset without any worry about shrinking.
