S-CURVE UNDERBUST LONGLINE EDWARDIAN CORSET
[ORDER PAGE. Updated 6/23/15]


Style Advisory: This style is suitable for:
  • Serious waist-training clients.
  • Clients desiring to use imaginative fabric placement and design in this pattern with diagonal seaming.
  • Hip smoothing in a longer-line corset style.
  • Re-enactors of the Edwardian period.











INTRODUCTION:

Here's a lovely take on the traditional overbust S-Curve or "Gibson Girl" corset with braid trims to render it truly noteworthy for weddings or for show!

Note the special three-rose rosette pin for the bodice on the style pictured left, and below in a back view, the white lace interlaced with pink and avocado ribbons for our bride client who send us these lovely comments after receiving her corset:

"Oh my, my new S-Curve corset by Jill is beautiful and perfect! I will certainly send you a wedding day photo next spring. I can't wait to get this beauty on!" Ilse (5/26/15) "I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that I LOVE my new corset! The workmanship is incredible and it's so very beautiful! Again, thank you so much to both of you! I will certainly send you some pictures!" Ilse (6/9/15)

SPECIAL DESIGN FEATURES OF THIS STYLE:

The dramatic diagonal seaming pattern in the side-front of this style permits for imaginative and note-worthy design. Our clients may choose different patterned or colored fabrics to the right of that diagonal, and to the left.

To feature this lovely diagonal feature, our client pictured right chose lovely grey-blue Chinese silk in front with black satin sides.

Clients should consider taking advantage of this artistic feature when selecting their fabrics and colors. Note that a dark color fabric placed on the sides of the corset emphasizes the body's curves.

THE STYLE FOR MEN:

Men desiring the more V-shape for the torso of a men's stays, also appreciate the style, as noted in Tom's comments below.

Tom's choice of a sturdy khaki cotton combined with a handsome silk paisley front fabric created a handsome combination. Any fabrics used for men's vests would be suitable and elegant.


HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE CHOICES AVAILABLE BELOW IN THIS STYLE ORDER FORM:

You will be offered various choices in the design of this corset style by Jill. Before placing your order you may wish to see pictures of those choices and read descriptions. Please consult the Design Navigation Button, and under it the ten design categories or options including but not limited to fabrics and braid trims.

"After wearing it for two hours or so you do notice that it forces the derriere out as designed -- and it really flattens the tummy area. The corset fits very well and is very firm when laced down. Thank you again for a great corset, well made at a good price." Tom (11/3/11)
