The black cashmere 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!
This corset is comfortable and supportive, with 20 flexible spiral steel bones, a one-inch wide steel busk with four brass swing hooks riveted on, and four flat steel stays to support the back grommets. Laced with black flat shoestring lacing. Constructed with three layers of fabric: two inner layers of cotton twill, waist tape, and the 100% wool 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.
