Did you know that many extant busks are curved? Our curved wooden corset busks have a slight S-shape, providing belly room and curving back out at the top bust edge. They are perfect for 1820s and 1830s, or anyone who wants to add a little bit of shaping to their Regency stays project.
These wooden corset busks are custom made by a local, small-batch manufacturer to our specifications, and they work with our corsets, patterns, and kits. Made from ash hardwood, these busks are 1.5" wide (3.75 cm) and 1/8" (3–4mm) thick. Choose from 12" or 14" length. All edges are smoothed and sanded, and the ends are rounded. The busks are finished with a coat of polycrylic varnish and laser engraved with our brand name.
The 14" length fits our standard 1830s stays and stays pattern, while the 12" length is good if you are short-waisted and need to shorten the pattern length.
