There are several differents methods to open the front of your corset, choice depends on habits, aesthetic whishes or need f


- Busk is the traditionnal front opening for corsets. and with very little training, the easiest and fastest.
- Antique gold and black are only available in a limited range of length, depending on the corset design, one or two grommets might be needed to close the front properly.
Or you can add a swing hook (prices below) !

Front Lacing

- Front lacing makes for a very pretty opening and is georgeous on 18th century corsets.
- The partial front lacing allows for a beautiful bust curve at the front and is great plus plus sizes cups.
- Available in Silver, Gold, Black and Antique gold.

Swing hooks

- These swing hooks offer an elegant and orginal alternative to close the front of your corset. they can either replace the busk completely or you can just add one or two at the bust for a decorative effect.
- Please note that these are not compatible with the "busk cover" option, they are meant to be seen!

No Opening

- You can choose to have the front completely closed., in this case, two wide spring steel are placed at the front, to ensure support.
- Great for Wedding corsets as we can better decorate the front.
- Not recommended for daily wear corsets.



Retour en Haut

This is the skeleton of the corset, what makes it rigid and sturdy.
I only use metal boning.

Steels Spirals
These are rigid steel bones covered with white pvc, the ends must be carefully tipped to avoid ripping the fabric and hurting the wearer!
They are generally placed on the front and back of the corset.
Made of two metal wires twisted then flattened together, same concern for the ends, special metal caps exist to take care of that.
These are placed on the side, being much more supples they are appropriate for the curvier places.

Double Boning

Double boning Front double boning
+20€ Waist-Cinchers, +30€ Underbusts, +40€ Corsets +20€ Overbust only.
Doubling the boning makes the corset more rigid and offer a better support.
It can also be an aesthetical choice.
Doubling the numbers of bones at the front allows to reinforce this area and offers better support of the breasts. It also gives a better sensation of containment.
Recommended for ample breasts from D cup.
Essential beyond an F cup (US DDD).

Cording consists in sewing very thin parallel casings in order to add cord in them.
The result is very similar to boning but the sensations in the end are less restrictive.
We find it mostly in historical designs.
Some of my designs have corderd pieces in them but you can ask for more!

Modesty Panel

Retour en Haut

This is the piece of fabric put in the back under the lacing
to protect the skin and insure an aesthetic continuity.

Front Modesty Panel (Include)
It's a little piece of fabric added to hide the skin that might show up in the front under the busk.

Back Removable Modesty Panel
(+20€ Waist-Cinchers, +25€ Underbusts, +30€ Overbusts)
The back panel hides the skin under the lacing, il also prevents the lacing friction against the skin.
This one is not sewn to the corset, it has bones and is hold into place by the lacing.
Sets itself really easily.

Busk Covers

Retour en Haut

You don't want the busk to be seen? You want to add another decorative effect?
This option is ideal, either directly with the fabric to hide it(+15€),
or with a more original shape that I can create for you.(+35€)

There's a third option for which I don't have pictures yet, it's a wide busk cover about 1 1/2" wide (+25€) ,
