"ON THE VERGE" UNDERBUST VICTORIAN WITH FLUTES
[ORDER PAGE. Updated 4/13/15]

****Style Advisory: Sturdy, well crafted artistic style from 2013, creating an ice-cream cone (rib-straightening) waistline silhouette in four fabric layers. Suitable for MTF clients who wish to visually narrow a broad rib cage. May create some rib movement if worn daily for a year or more. This corset is not suitable for waist training. (View panels of the corset, and additional images below.)****

This beautiful, spiraling boned underbust hails from the Victorian period, and uses "flutes" to create the hourglass silhouette. It's modeled here by corsetiere Sharon McCoy Morgan at a spring 2012 conference where she lectured on corseting. Soon Sharon will introduce the demi-overbust style as well.

Note the multiple panels, eight in total, that can be produced in various contrasting fabrics for special interest, and the Steam Punk-style embellishment of the corset. Sharon affixed delicate zig-zagging gold chains secured by small D-rings, allowing a set of keys to be attached at the bottom edge. Sharon also attached a watch to the other side of the corset, viewed in the closeup image below on this page (keys and watch not included with style). Note also the lovely "mirror matching" of the rose pattern in front of the corset.

Imaginative mixing and matching of both patterned and solid fabrics emphasizes the lovely diagonal seams and pattern pieces in this style, and visually minimizes the waistline. If you wish to discuss a creative design such as viewed in the corset worn by Sharon, please send us an email with your ideas.

Both styles include a muslin as part of the fitting process.
