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.

Boning/Bones

A combination of spiral (at bottom) and flat steels are used in our corsets. These provide strength and flexibility to the garment, as well as keep the fabric from buckling under the tension of lacing. Our corsets come standard with two bones per seam, which are cut and tipped by hand to be the perfect length for each individual piece.
