Edwardian S-Bend Corset -- Custom Sized Made to Order
Our Turn of the Century S-Bend corset has all the curve and drama of the Gibson Girl silhouette in a mid-bust corset. These corsets feature center front busk, straight steel boning throughout, English cotton coutil strength layer, white cotton sateen fashion fabric, waist tape, and center back lacing with two piece nickel grommets. Corsets above a 32" waist include more boning for added support.
These corsets nip in the waist and exaggerate the hips, creating the iconic "S-bend" shape. This era was all about large round hips, tiny waists and low bosoms. These corsets are cut at a lower mid-bust height. To help you achieve this silhouette without extreme tightlacing, we pattern these corsets with an extra 2-3" in the hip and include hip pads which can be tacked or pinned into the hip of the corset to fill out the side back. This creates the illusion of a smaller waist. If you would prefer the corset be made to fit your hips without padding, please let us know in the notes at checkout. These corsets are intended for moderate waist reduction (2-4") but are not intended for waist training or daily wear.
All Redthreaded corsets are handmade by us in our Colorado studio. Please see our other listings for custom sizing, corsetry for other historical periods, avant garde corsets, and other costume pieces.
