Corset and Cloak
 Charmaine G. Brown

 

Purple Satin Corset

Zipper closure, white steel stays. Satin brocade and jacquard fabrics topstitched with matching thread, with decorative center bow. Corset features optional top breast pull string and waist reinforcement band.

 

A top pull string creates a curved or cupping effect for the upper bust line. Topstitching is done usually with a thicker thread and can be the same color as the corset fabric or a contrasting color for additional interest.

 

Standard corset back should leave two to four inches of open space. A fabric modesty panel can also be made to be placed under this area.
