Another favorite of mine, the Steampunk Plaid Chained corset can go with Pirate and Steampunk costuming as well as everyday wear. Wear with a chemise or tattered shirt and layered pixie skirts for an Airship Pirate style, or wear with a high-collared shirt and bustle skirt for your elegant Steampunk wear! For the adventurer look, this style closes at the front with antiqued brass colored swing hooks, decorative chains, and iridescent accent panels and trim give the elegance of the plaid fabric of this corset a hint of the fantastical, evoking a feeling of the gritty yet elegant alternative Victorian timeline that is Steampunk.
This corset is comfortable and supportive, with 20 flexible spiral steel bones, a one-inch wide steel busk with the swing hooks riveted on, and four steel bars to support the back grommets. Constructed with three layers of fabric: two inner layers of cotton twill, waist tape, and the poly-fiber outer layer which is laminated to the middle layer of cotton. There are six garter loops (no straps included) attached at the bottom inner seam. Hourglass underbust corsets have a 6.5″ rib spring (difference between waist and under bust), a 10″ hip spring (difference between waist and hip), and a rounder, more contoured underbust line than that of the gentle underbust corsets.
