If you not only want to support your breasts, but also to model your figure this corset is the perfect choice! It features bust gussets and is laced in the back. It contains a pocket in which a piece of carved wood, the removable busk (available from our corsetry department), has to be inset. The busk was a popular gift presented by young men to the girl they loved.

Despite the given date this corset can also be worn for the earlier years of the 19th Century! There’re extant garments dating to 1800-1810.

All sizes (US 10-20 = Bust 33 1/2 – 41 1/2″ = 83 – 104 cm, Waist 25 1/2 – 33 1/2″ = 63 – 83) included.
