Man in corsetThis corset was made from an original edwardian pattern in Norah Waugh’s excellent Corsets and Crinolines.   The pattern was scaled up, then adapted to fit the wearer.  Its 16 panels give a fantastic shape on any body.

The corset is made of 2 layers of stiff cotton drill enclosing spiral steel bones, which is then covered with sequined silk, and the edges are bound with bias strips of the same fabric.

There is a steel busk at the centre front, so you can dress yourself (but it’s hard to pull it very tight on your own) and metal eyelets down the back.

Due to the heavyweight foundation materials and authentic construction, it’s a corset that can truly re-shape your body to desired proportions.


Only available as a bespoke garment.  Corsets from £300, this model from £450.
