This was the first ribbon corset I ever made, back in 2002. It is made from 2" satin ribbon, and only has boning at the sides, around the grommets, and in the busk. It has a VERY long torso (15" busk, underbust), and is made to have a 30" waist when laced. This means it would fit someone with a waist measurement of 30"-36", who was over 6 feet tall, male or female.
The corset is a reproduction Edwardian negligee corset, constructed to imitate all the details described in tailoring books and shown in historic photos. One of the big advantages of this style of corset is its versatility. Unlike other styles of corset, it is very forgiving of differences in body shape, allowing comfortable fit as long as only a couple basic measurements match.
