Corsets have gone through a variety of uses over the centuries, ranging from garments that confer shaping and size to fashionable accessories. This Black and Gray Velvet Underbust Corset is the modern successor to this historical garment. And as its successor, it inherits both tough construction and a beautiful appearance, making it a multifunctional garment. This underbust corset is made from three layers of high quality fabric, the first, outer layer being made from soft, luxurious velvet in shades of black and gray to create an impressive and almost Victorian look, although it retains a modern style. The inner two layers are high quality cotton, with the middle layer being laminated to the outer layer for strength. This corset is made to last, featuring 20 spiral steel stays to keep it in shape, as well as a steel busk reinforced by 2 steel bars in the front. The back grommets are also reinforced by 4 steel bars, for additional strength. All the boning and reinforcing makes this corset also quite capable as a tool for waist-reduction, as well as allowing the corset to stand up to hours of being worn tight-laced. Just like the corsets of old, this Black and Gray Velvet Underbust Corset can be used to narrow your waist, or like the corsets of the modern age, this corset can be worn as a compliment to a variety of ensembles and attires. No matter how you use the corset, though, it is certain to be an eye-catching and beautiful addition to virtually any look or style. This corset would be a lovely addition to any Medieval, Renaissance, Pirate, or Stemapunk themed outfit.
