EMBELLISHMENT - BRAIDS, BUCKLES, BOWS, ROSETTES, D-RINGS, AND FEATHERS
A special embellishment can add an extra touch of
unique glamor and "finish" to your corset, perfect for
special occasion dressing, if you care to stand out from
the crowd with a distinctive look. Because we add
embellishments corset-by-corset, please inquire and tell
us what interests you for your corset. We will respond
with a specific price bid once we understand your
To showcase what we offer, please review images
on this page. We list five distinct types of
embellishments and examples of each from
which you may choose, to spark your imagination.
Woven braid trims may include a strip of fabric,
fringe, sequins, or beading,
any of which may be applied on the binding
or horizontally on the corset.
Please see this
related page for lace trims and ruffles.
Crystal rhinestones applied either in a row, or individually
scattered over your corset, can add a particular magic
at a surprisingly reasonable
price. Sizes 16 mm and 20 mm create a memorable
presence, although you may request larger or smaller
sizes of rhinestones:
* Czech 16 mm - 50 cents per stone
* Czech 20 mm - 60 cents per stone
* Austrian 16 mm - 65 cents per stone
* Austrian 20 mm - 75 cents per stone
* Rows of rhinestones quoted by size and color.
Czech rhinestones are best seen across a room while
Swarovski Austrian rhinestones show best within five
or so feet of viewing. Mixing the two, as well as two
different sizes, can be quite
attractive and give you the best of both worlds.
Please view the lovely effect of rhinestones on
various corset styles shown here. We wish we could show
you the more dazzling effect in real life!
These corsets may give you some design and color
ideas about how to create a truly memorable and
stunning corset ensemble for weddings, holiday parties,
and other special "Red Carpet" occasions.
Feather collars or bottom adornment can be permanent
or detachable from your corset. Individual feathers can
be incorporated into the design on the body of your corset,
or added to a coordinating corsage
CHAINS, BUCKLES, STUDS, AND D-RINGS
Chains come in silver or gold and may be single or multi-
strand and attached in various parts of your corset. You may
view an imaginative use of small D-rings and chains in
Sharon's "On the Verge" Victorian
. The corset can close in front with buckles over a busk,
and garters can be attached by D-rings or added at the
waist, bottom edge, or top and attach to a posture collar.
ROSETTES, BOWS, AND SILK FLOWERS
Many different colors and types of rosettes, bows, and
silk flowers are available. They may be added to cover
the front busk studs, as shown in the black and pink
corset to the right, or to adorn the top of the corset.
You may also order two long ribbons to be attached to the
top edge of your corset center front, with which to tie
