Once upon a time, in a cold and darkened land, there were no corsets. “How will we achieve the perfect shape for our new outfit, or the hot celebrity look, or the special evening with our partner?” the women cried. Then True Corset rode into town (on a horse wearing a horsey corset, obviously) and the women of the world exclaimed “Hurrah! Now whether we require a great look for going out, a photo shoot, or a goth, burlesque, pinup, steampunk, cosplay, or vintage look, we know where to go for exquisite designs, expert advice, and amazing prices!”
At True Corset, they like stories, and are dedicated to making sure you feel like you have the starring role. They were instrumental in the corset revival and have been at the forefront of corset trends and tailoring for years, inspiring much of the work in the corset industry. True Corset is famed for making original designs and producing high quality pieces that you see across mainstream and alternative fashion scenes. Here are some of my favourites and how I styled them for the Holidays!
PLUS SIZE JUSTINE STEEL BONED CORSET WITH HALTER STRAPS, and BLACK VICTORIAN BUSTLE SKIRT
True Corsts, exclusive Justine Steel Boned Corset with Halter Straps features a unique floral lace overlay on the front panels and satin halter straps to frame your cleavage. This authentic steel boned corset was designed with the best construction and attention to detail. I was so pleasantly surprised with the fabulous quality of this corset and its structure. It provides a gorgeous shape and elegant posture, while still being comfortable enough to wear long into the evening. Whether you're wearing this corset for a night on the town or for a sexy SteamPunk costume, or an elegant evening at home, I just know you'll love it! It paired PERFECTLY with the Victorian Bustle Skirt, which has a tiered ruffle design and side zip closure. Two adjustable ties are placed beneath the layers allow to you adjust the amount of bustle and drape. The material is thick and warm, perfect for wearing out for an evening walk in the snow, or for a glamorous holiday party. Use the ties to gather it high for extra “bustle” or leave it untied for a flowing, smooth look, live I did here to visit my new horsey friend!!
KINNAIRD DUCHESS SATIN LILAH STEEL BONED CORSET WITH DETACHABLE REMOVABLE PANEL
As soon as I saw this wonderfully crafted corset, I knew I wanted to do a Toy Soldier inspired look. This corset takes cues from the steampunk genre with ornate engravings on the antique style brass buttons, that have been used at the front. As well as on the lush chocolate brown contrast binding that that is on the top and bottom of the corset and the front panel. The front panel can be removed to reveal a stunning black busk front closure, which creates a totally unique look.
The custom made black duchess satin is the final part, giving a soft matte sheen, which really works with all the other detailing. This corset has then been triple bonded to a high thread count 100% cotton twill. Triple bonding increases the strength of the corset, while making sure that the cotton close to the skin is as soft as possible. Put all of this together and you have a corset which gives the wearer an hour glass figure while being lighter, more comfortable and much stronger. The quality of these pieces really speak for themselves, and, the best part, none of them are priced over $100, as everything is ON SALE!
