Throwback Thursday: Red snakeskin 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 a red snakeskin PVC. The top edge is trimmed with a leopard-print grosgrain ribbon, while the lower edge is trimmed with black poly-cotton bias tape.

This is an overbust modern Victorian corset, but an early design of mine, with a less dramatic shape than many of my other corsets.

The corset was photographed (above) on a form much smaller than the corset itself.

The lining is black cotton; this is a two-layer corset without a waist stay.

This corset closes with a heavy duty zipper front closure and back lacing with eyelets instead of grommets. This is not a corset for significant cinching – it’s a lovely lightweight lingerie-style corset, great for club wear or bedroom wear.

This corset has been worn for photos, but is in like-new condition. No tags, one of a kind.

Waist 42″ fully closed
Centre front length: 16.25″

This corset comes from a smoke-free home. None of my corsets (unless otherwise noted) have modesty panels or garter hooks.
