WHAT KATIE DID RIDING CORSET
I was after a corset that didn't restrict movement or lung capacity, yet still offered lots of shaping and support to the torso. The solution was inspired by Victorian riding corsets. These corsets were cut lower at the side of the rib, and higher over the hip, to allow for a greater range of movement while out and about.
These corsets are designed to work hard and reduce your waist by up to 4". Please deduct 3-4" from your normal waist measurement to work out your corset size: for instance, both a natural waist of 29" and a natural waist size of 30" should give a corset size of 26".
* length along front busk 10.25"
Measurements when completely closed:
Waist / Ribcage
The ribcage measurement on a Riding Corset is taken 2.75" up from the waist.
A Note On Hip Measurements:
Cotton twill lining
Moderate curve, deduct 8-10cm (3-4 inches) from your waist to determine your Riding Corset size
Steel busk front opening and a combination of 20 flat spiral steel bones
Each corset is made by hand by one corsetier from start to finish
