44" Waist 1880's Victorian Corset in Red Sateen
One of a kind, plus size corset sample in red sateen, with double wide, shaped busk. Black cotton lace adds detail. See measurements below.
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, and center back lacing with two piece nickel grommets.
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. A drawstring along the bust line allows adjustment of the top edge.
MEASURMENTS: Corset itself measures 52" bust, 44" waist, 52" hip, with a 13" busk center front.
Your own bust, waist, and hip measurements should be 4-6" LARGER for best fit, or more if you are quite "squishy". This was made for a model with measurements of approx. 56", 51", 54"
