REGENCY RIDING CORSET - OVERBUST BY JILL HOVERMAN

****Style Advisory: This period-perfect corset is suitable for foundation or outer fashion wear. This corset is not suitable for tight-lacing or waist training. It may also be ordered in an underbust style.(View three 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 style corset is shaped by gussets inserted at the bustline and at the hipline, also sometimes called "flutes." Typically the back gap was worn fairly wide open as shown. Our style may be ordered with the bottom gussets open (no fabric) or with fabric and closed, with or without overlacing. It may also be ordered with or without a front busk closure (shown here with busk).It is produced standard in ivory, white, or black cotton twill but 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."

When measuring for corsetry, kindly consult our website measurement page and view a graphic and images of precisely how and where specific measurements should be taken. If you wish us to review your torso photos and evaluate measurements for correctness, we will invoice an additional $15.
