****Style Advisory: Fashionably cute, traditional corset
with maximum of 4" waist reduction when closed in back.
Because of the body silhouette and construction,
this corset is not suitable for tight-lacing or
serious waist training. (View three additional images
below ordering section on this page.)****
Often seen in Victorian days as one of the few corsets
actually worn outside of a dress as a fashion piece,
the Ribbon Corset presents an unusual sloping of
diagonal 'ribbons' of fabric draped around the body,
with vertical panels in back, front, and on the sides,
with a front-busk closure. Senior Corsetiere Sharon McCoy
Morgan /Altered Tyme Corsetry for ROMANTASY produces
this nifty style using sturdy tubes of either cotton-backed
satin, or Chinese silk brocade. You may order the front,
side and back panels from the same fabric as seen in the
burgundy corset to the right, or order it
made in a solid satin color for contrast, seen below.
The standard corset is about 10" tall in front
and employs five ribbons in front plus three ribbons
in back. You may choose a taller style, about 13" in front,
for a modest upcharge. The taller style (seen right in
the burgundy corset) employs seven ribbons
in front plus five in back.
Please review this line's
choices. Some silks and satins in stock will not
involve any upcharge at all; please inquire.
We send the final corset in your chosen fabric made to
your custom measurements to you with fabric tube ribbons
only temporarily basted in. This is so that you may pin
changes and ajust to a perfect fit. Your changes then
become the final version we produce along with pictures
we ask you to return with the basted and pinned corset.
