IMPERFECT 1880's Victorian Corset size 24 (40" waist)
HUGE discount--this corset has a large water/tea-like stain that is approx 4"X6" on one side. It's otherwise structurally sound and would be a great candidate for a tea dye or other dye application. The stain may also wash out but we're not sure and we'd rather move it out of the sale bin.
The 1880's Victorian corsets are based on historical examples of the last part of the 19th century, 1880-1900 encompassing bustle and Belle Époque before the S-Bend look came into vogue. These corsets feature center front busk, a mid bust height, steel boning throughout, English cotton coutil strength layer, white cotton sateen fashion fabric, and center back lacing with two piece nickel grommets. Plus Sizing (18-26 Womens) features additional boning throughout for added support, as well as an additional front seam to provide more shaping.
These corsets nip in the waist, smooth the hips and torso, and support the bust without creating a dramatic modern push-up effect. This more natural bustline is historically appropriate. The lacing placket seam is adjustable, so you can fine tune fit.
