Throwback Thursday: Ghostly corset

I’m calling this a Throwback Thursday because this is actually a corset I made a while ago (so I don’t have any work-in-progress photos either). I made this to sell, back when I was hoping to get commissions for custom work (I’m not looking to do custom work anymore).

A bit about this corset:

The outer fabric of this underbust corset is black cotton with white ghosts. There are also two contrast PVC insets. The PVC is a heavy-weight PVC, with a high glossy shine. There are four decorative D-rings hanging from the top of the underbust corset, which would attach nicely to a harness, but are not intended for strong pulling. The lining is black cotton.  I don’t recall what the interlining is, but likely more black cotton.

The corset is trimmed in black poly-cotton bias, and the corset has spiral steel bones at the hips, and spring steel bones for the rest of the corset. There are a total of 14 bones in this corset. The corset has an internal waist-stay, a front strong zipper (not a standard dress zipper) and the lacing is paracord through three-piece grommets.

This is my “natural hip” design which does not offer a great deal of compression to the hips, allowing for a very dramatic silhouette.

This corset was designed for:

  • Bust -37″
  • Waist -32″
  • Hip-43″

Fully closed waist measurement: 28″

Center front length: 11″

This corset has never been worn except for photos, and comes from a smoke-free home. None of my corsets (unless otherwise noted) have modesty panels or garter hooks.
