RIBBON CORSET
[Updated 11/4/13]
****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, cotton-backed satin, silk duchesse satin, or Chinese silk brocade. You may order the front, side and back panels from the same fabric as the ribbons, viewed in the burgundy corset to the right, or order it in a solid color for contrast, seen in the images below. You may also reverse this design combination, that is, order the ribbons in a solid color and the front, side and back panels in a print.

The standard corset is about 10" tall in front and employs five ribbons in front plus three ribbons in back. This style is seen below in the pink and blue corset, and the black and red corset. You may choose a taller style, about 13" in front, for a modest upcharge. The taller style is seen right in the burgundy corset, and employs seven ribbons in front plus five in back.

We send a "preliminary" final corset made in your chosen fabric following your custom measurements. The fabric tube ribbons will be temporarily basted in. This is so that you may pin changes and adjust to a perfect fit. After that you take photos of the corset on your toros and return those along with your corset, to Sharon for the final "stitch down." Your changes become the final version we produce.
