Longline steel boned underbust corset with Victorian style spoon busk.
The spoon busk was a popular addition in the Victorian era, and can best be described as a slight curve right at the base of the busk, designed to add additional support to the tummy area. Which you prefer is a matter of personal choice, however, most customers will be more than satisfied with our standard design.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for delivery if your corset says to order.

What Katie Did corsets are made up of several layers: base fabric: 100% cotton twill, 100% cotton lining fabric, an internal waist stay and the face (or fashion) fabric. A combination of spiral and flat steel boning is used. Two piece grommets and washers are used at the back, placed between boning, whilst all of our corsets feature a steel busk at the front.
These corsets are designed to work hard and reduce your waist by up to 5 inches. Please deduct 4 to 5 inches from your normal waist measurement to work out your corset size: a natural waist of 29 inches will give a corset size of 24 inches, whilst a natural waist size of 30 inches will give a corset size of 26 inches.
Several experienced corset wearers have purchased a size smaller than they normally do. Most suited to vintage figures with a waist 10 inches (or more) smaller than the hip.
