Corsets and Crinolines - unique vintage clothing

C.1896 Corset

C.1896 Corset
Black cotton coutil corset with sateen bone casings for a "Stout" figure. 38" bust and 26" waist. This was a popular style of corset as it was high busted to offer support for the larger busted lady (also has buttons sewn in the bust to add straps like a bra, for additional breast support). Busk is the old curved style which became popular in the 1870's as it gave better fat distribution and was (and still is!) very comfortable. Made by Kabo and is the "long waisted" style.
