COLORS OF FABRICS IN DESIGN

Colors used in the design of your fabric are not only related to your aesthetic or artistic preferences, but can or will impact the visual reduction or enlargement of your waistline and figure silhouette. Take a look at the images shown on this page below. You will see how combining fabrics in the various panels of your corset style can create dramatically or subtly different results.

In general it is wise to remember the art principle that light advances or looks larger, while dark recedes or looks smaller. This is why many brides dressed in white believe the look heavier than normal. Thus, if you wish your waistline to look smaller in a corset, you might choose a dark color for the underarm panels and a lighter color for the front (and back) panels. Also note that how many front panels you choose for the light color also impacts the size of your waistline. Fewer panels of light (one on either side of the front busk rather than two) and more of dark (two underarm panels per side rather than one) , shrink the waistline. However choosing one panel per side of the front busk to be in a lighter or patterned fabric, will not show off the fabric as well as choosing two panels per side of the front busk. Note the black and burgundy corset in the second row left side, to see an example of that difference.
