The Green Stripes with Black Cashmere Hourglass Underbust Corset can go with Gothic, Renaissance, Steampunk, and Pirate costuming as well as everyday wear. Wear with a chemise, long skirt, and pixie skirt for a Renaissance faire outfit; layer over a dress for a Medieval or Fantasy look; wear with a shirt and layered pixie skirts for a Pirate style; or wear with a high-collared shirt and bustle skirt for a Steampunk look! On the front panels of this corset, the striped fabric has been turned at an angle to create a chevron design.
This corset is comfortable and supportive, with 20 flexible spiral steel bones, a steel busk with two flat steel stays for extra front support, and four flat steel stays to support the back grommets. Constructed with three layers of fabric: two inner layers of cotton twill, waist tape, and alternating panels of 100% polyester printed stripe fabric and 100% wool cashmere outer layer which are laminated to the middle layer of cotton. There are four garter loops (no straps included) attached at the bottom inner seam, and this corset has been laced in back and at the hips with green ribbon lacing. Hourglass underbust corsets have a rounder, more contoured underbust line than that of the classic underbust corsets.
Please remember that all screens show colors differently, and the corset you receive may slightly vary from the color you see on your device.
