RH 975 Ladies' 1890s Underbust Corset

Size : EUR 18.00 incl. VAT

(EUR 15.13 excl. VAT)


In the 1890s, the top of the corset moved down to below the bustline where it could best do its job of narrowing the waist while other elements of feminine dress highlighted the bust. Our Underbust Corset based on surviving examples is both easy to make and wear.

Fits busts 28" through 60" and waists 24" through 52". All sizes in one envelope.

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.

Suggested Fabrics: cotton coutil or densely-woven twill

metal eyelets
¼” steel bones
½” steel bones
steel busk
¾” cotton stay tape (twill tape)

Yardage Requirements: ½ yd at least 60” wide
