VISUAL GLOSSARY

What exactly is a "busk" anyway?  Single/double/triple bone casings?!  Just what are "bones" and what do they look like?  Sometimes a picture really is worth a thousand words when it comes to breaking down corset-related jargon.  Click the pictures to enlarge with a full description of what goes into our corsetry and why it's special.

Busk

The busk is the centre front closure on a corset, should it feature a front opening. Rather than a series of closures, it is actually several hooks and posts riveted to a piece of 1/2" steel. These are available in many different lengths to serve our bespoke clients, as well as different finishes. Nickel plated is standard, but they are also available in gold tone, antique brass, and black for a nominal fee.
