"THE BELLA" BASIC UNDERBUST VICTORIAN BY SHARON
(N.B. Sharon will accept new orders in April, 2016, as she is busy completing her master's degree program before that. Thanks for your patience.)
[ORDER PAGE. Updated 11/30/15]


General Advisory: This corset is perfect for:
  • Fashion wear and moderate torso control,

  • Clients who want excellent pricing for fully-custom corsetry in functional fabrics,

  • Corset enthusiasts who own many corsets but who wish to add a lighter-weight corset in a new color, fabric, or try a new corsetiere from our team,

  • Maintenance of the waistline after waist training,

  • Hot-weather wear.
INTRODUCTION:

This adorable, simple, four-panel per side Victorian style was developed by senior corsetiere Sharon McCoy Morgan. It is not suitably strong or structured for waist-training purposes. For that purpose please order Sharon's Fundamental Line Bella, or her Elegant Line 10-12 panel Victorian .

The Bella pattern uses diagonal boning in front which emphasizes and visually reduces the waistline, especially when the single boning is applied with outside bone channels, or when lace trim is added along the diagonal bone in front.

In addition, choosing a different and darker color on the sides with a lighter color in front and back, will visually "shrink" the waistline.

The corset shown to the right is in our lovely rosebeige cotton-backed satin with flat lace trim added. Even a well-priced, well-fitting simple custom corset such as this style can be made suitably feminine with a touch of lace. The corset is also functional and lovely in cotton.

You may view fabric choices here.

The maximum length underarm measurement from waist down to bottom of corset is 5"; anything over that will require you place an order not for the Bella Victorian, but for Jill's longline Edwardian style or Sharon's Elegant Line Edwardian style.

Note that if you choose Chinese brocade, you also must choose a lining, otherwise the corset will not meet our quality standards for strength and suitable durability.

If your center front measurement exceeds 10" in length, there will be a $35 upcharge for a longer (and more expensive) front busk.


HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE CHOICES AVAILABLE BELOW IN THIS STYLE ORDER FORM:

You will be offered various choices in the design of this style by Sharon. Before placing your order you may wish to see pictures of those choices and read descriptions. Please consult the Design Navigation Button, and under it the ten design categories or options including but not limited to fabrics and braid trims.
