Free motion stitching decorated both the outside and the inside of this handmade corset with some of the different names women have gone by over the years: on the outside, words such as strumpet, tart and harlot; on the inside, virgin, mother, bride.

The corset itself is deep red silk on the outside, embroidered in black, the inside is black cotton embroidered in red. The corset is equally finished on both sides and could be worn with the black outer if you prefer. The boning is sprung steel and there are a lot of them in this design, making it very strong and giving you a great shape and structure. (And quite heavy - check the postage costs before buying!)

The shape of the corset is a classic style with a high back, deeply scooped front and tabbed hem, ended with black satin binding. It is laced front and back with specialist lacing which is long enough for a variety of sizes. The straps are fastened with silky black cord and the ends finished with little embroidered tags in the shape of hearts and houses.

SIZING
As the design has laces front and back, this corset can be adjusted to fit a range of sizes depending upon how tightly you wish to lace it. Most corset wearers choose a corset size 2-4in smaller than their waist.

Minimum bust: 38"
Maximum bust: 50" depending upon the tightness of the lacing and how big a gap you wish to have in back.
Approximate UK size: 14\/16\/18\/20 (the model in the picture is a 16\/18)

The actual measurements of the corset are:
Underarm to underarm: 38"
Waist: 33"
Centre back: 19"
