Throwback Thursday: Silver glitter 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:

This overbust corset is has an outer fabric at the centre front which is made of silver applied dots over black velvet, creating a glittery effect. The remaining fabric on this corset is sturdy black cotton. The corset is lined in black cotton. This is a two-layer corset; no interlining.

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 has a centre front length of 13.5″
  • The waist on this corset is 26″ fully closed.

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