Late Edwardian Corset









From the seller:

A gorgeous OLD STOCK antique Victorian, Edwardian, nude color cotton bustier corset with bone casings ~ wide lace overlay around the neckline ~ metal eyelet lace-ups ~ metal hook and eye closures down the front ~ and four wide adjustable garters. The corset is stamped ~ Kabo, The Live Model Corset, Non-Rustable, No. 2049. It also has the numbers 18 and 7 stamped on the inside. The corset measures 22" at the longest and when cinched the tightest --- 26" across the top neckline, 36 1/2" along the bottom edge, 19" across the waist. The corset is sound, strong and very wearable but does has some spotting like shown in the photo and is somewhat dusty/dirty from age but otherwise in EXCELLENT antique condition. Also included is some pieces of a blue tissue that was in a corset box and a couple of ends from a corset box, one matches the model number of the corset. The laces are missing, the ones in the photo are not included.

Above is an ad for this corset or one very similar to it. Kind of interesting that they'd include a book on how to put on your corset....

  1. I remember my grandmother wearing something very similar to this corset in the 1960s. But she called it a girdle. :-)
