The Wine Cotton Hourglass Underbust Corset can go with Gothic, Renaissance, Pirate, and Steampunk costuming as well as everyday alternative 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!
The wine cotton twill is sturdy, durable, and looks looks great with casual looks or with your festival wear. The corset is laced at the hips and at the back with a coordinating burgundy ribbon lacing. 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 sturdy cotton twill, waist tape, and the wine cotton twill outer layer. There are four garter loops (no straps included) attached at the inside bottom seam. Hourglass underbust corsets have a rounder, more contoured underbust line than that of the classic underbust corsets.
