1860's corsets Edwardian informational news s-bends Victorian

Hi folks! Here at Redthreaded we're always striving to improve, and so we are making some changes to a few of our stock corset styles. These changes will be in effect on all new stock purchases going forward. Sale listings may or may not have the updates. 

All front-opening busk styles (1860's, 1880's, S-Bend, Titanic styles)

  • Will no longer have a busk underlap. This change is more in keeping with construction seen from the time periods.
  • Will have a slightly more flexible busk. However, these busks are made of better quality steel, and feel more like the busks in our extant collection.

1860's & 1880's

  • beginning immediately, we are now adding a drawstring into the top bust area of both 1860's and 1880's styles! This allows you to fine tune the fit a bit more, and addresses common gapping issues with these styles. 

NOTE: we are not updating our commercial patterns with these changes. However, feel free to make the changes yourself if you would like!

    Hello Lisa,

    That is unlikely. We base our pattern lines on the popularity rankings of our corset sales, 1790’s is not a top contender.

    Will the transitional stays ever be available as a pattern for purchase? I‘d love to make one myself.
