The History Of Corsets
I would love to know some more about 2 antique items i bought a month ago, maybe you guys could help me?|
The first is a corset, the lady who sold both items told me this, she thinks the corset is dated around 1910.
This because of the straight lines.
From looking at the corset i concluded the following:
-made out of 1 layer of sturdy cotton
-boning chanels were made out of the seam allowances
-seems to be all flat steel
-machine made lace wich has been added later on, this you can notice because of the fact that 2 eyelets are coverd up because of the lace
-waisttape under the breast Not! on the waistline
-boning in the top to form cups
-boning goes straight over the hips ,but doesn't extend all the way
-busk extend little over hips but doesn't end with the corset and the corset has an extra closure with a mother-of-pearl button and loop of the same material as the corset.
-laces are not orginal
