OVERBUST "THE REGENCY RIDING" CORSET

[ORDER PAGE. Updated 4/01/14]

STYLE ADVISORY: This period-perfect corset is suitable for foundation or outer fashion wear and provides a straighter, column-like silhouette than the hourglass. "The Ani", a curvier hybrid of this style, is available. This corset is not suitable for tight-lacing or waist training. It may also be ordered in an underbust style.( View additional images below the ordering section on this page.)
"Received the muslin for my new Jill corset and it seems to fit perfectly! All the corsets I have bought from you over the years fit well, so I don't know how Jill would be any different! Love," Leeann (12/10/09)

This period corset is shaped by gussets inserted at the bustline and at the hipline, also sometimes called "flutes" (a closeup is pictured below). Typically the back gap was worn fairly wide open as shown.

It comes standard with a front busk but may be ordered without one. In addition, it may be ordered with an underwire bustcups and detachable straps similar to the lovely Rose Corset This style is also produced in an underbust version, called "The Equestrian" corset.

Note the variety of shapes of the upper perimeter, namely straight across as in the beige corset, or the Valentine shape as in the white corset. The beige corset is shown right worn over a ruffled chemise and pantaloons which Jill also makes.

This corset is produced standard in ivory, white, or black cotton twill, but is also shown on this page in beige polycotton brocade (see below list of other colors available). It will come laced with shoe lace-like lacing cord which you may change at your location, or order satin ribbon.

Corsetiere Jill Hoverman adds this interesting note about the history of Regency corsets:

"Below are a couple of useful links to information about Regency corsets: http://www.antiquecorsetgallery.com/previc.php and http://www.songsmyth.com/underthings.html

Dates of the Regency period are a bit difficult to establish with certainty. The British Regency period is defined as 1811-1820 when George the IV was prince regent. The high-waisted dresses and attendant undergarments were worn during this time, but were also worn earlier during the Napoleonic wars (empire period 1803-1815) following the French Revolution. The philosophical switch from a ruling class where membership was hereditary to democracy where any one can rise to a position of leadership led to a revival of classical art. The slim, column-like shape of Empire and Regency period gowns was designed to evoke classical Greek statues. In the new United States, clothing styles changed more slowly, especially in newly settled areas. Indiana was the frontier during the early to mid 19th century. Women were still wearing the Regency style corset well into the 1830s and 40s."
