Longline steel boned underbust corset with Victorian inspired 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. Our Spoon Busk is actually flat, like our other busks, so is more for the Victorian look than any extra tummy control.
Our Spoon Busk Mortica Corset is cut to exactly the same pattern as our standard Morticia, which is an ultra-curvy underbust corset. It features our trademark goring at the hips which ensure that the waist can be pulled in as tightly as desired, without putting undue pressure on the hips. The longer line ensures that tummies are nicely flattened.
The sizes below are reduced waist sizes (ie, the corset size when it is closed). You will need to deduct 4-5 inches from your waist to determine your corset size. Please click on Sizing for more information.

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.
