This is an underbust corset with pinstripe front and back panels and black drill panels at the sides.
The corset has all the hallmarks of a traditional waist cincher - flat steel boning, waist tape, multi-layered construction and a modesty panel. Instead of a busk, however, the front is fastened by trigger hooks and small Velcro tabs. The trigger hooks provide an unusual and incredibly strong front fastening. The Velcro tabs minimise the micro vertical movement that the trigger hooks allow. To increase the comfort of the corset, we've thought carefully about both the cut and the construction. The front, back and modesty panels are all stiffened, using our secret method, to give more strength and structure to the corset. The steel bones are cut to size and their ends are taped using a technique passed down from the late, great Velda Lauder Corsetiere. The edges of the corset are bound using polycotton bias binding in a way that means that the steel boning is incredibly unlikely to poke through. At the back of the underbust corset, lacing runs through D rings rather than the traditional eyelets. We feel this gives the corset extra strength and durability as the D rings are very unlikely to migrate as the corset lacing is pulled tight. The benefit of the modesty panel being stiffened as it is means that it doesn't bunch up as you pull the lacing tighter. All in all, this steel boned, fully lined corset is both comfortable and durable, and is also unusual enough to turn heads!
