Think incredibly romantic Victorian corsets and Edwardian Corsets and you've got the picture of these kits. You'll get better body shaping than anything at Victoria's or Fredericks, and it will fit you better. So, if you're planning a special eveing or just like pretty things you'll love these kits and want one in every colour! These are also a great gift for the next bridal shower you have to attend!
The Victorians loved their embellishments and their underwear was often more beautiful than anything we wear today, think of the time they must have put into the corsets they hid under their dresses. These kits create pretty corsets you'll want to show off - consider making one for a special pre-wedding photo shoot. Lovely and lacey or rich with ruffles.

The Edwardian Corset is beautiful in it's simplicity.Basically this is an unembellished Victorian, the shape does not change as these are NOT historically accurate. Victorian is ruffles and lace and ribbons and frills and the Edwardian is clean and unadulterated symmetry!
This also makes a perfect little lingerie corset.Pair it with a bra and panties for a special night. This corset will shape you as an undergarment but is not designed for daily wear. If you're looking for a corset to wear regularly see our "Coutil Corset" section.
You can also buy this kit and consider it your "Blank Canvas", using trims from your own stash to create your own piece of art! Your imagination is the only limit.
