Red Stripe Summer Corsets
Going on a summer holiday? Me neither. Welcome to the Summer Collection for your back garden.
These corsets are 100% deadstock cotton, and will make your all year round Victorian woman attire appropriate for the heat, while remaining as sustainable as possible. A true win/win.
These garments are made to order so please allow around 2 weeks for your new purchase to arrive. Due to COVID, orders are currently taking up to a month as their have been such wildy different delivery times, but I will of course endeavour to get things out to you ASAP. Made to order is a far more sustainable way to make new clothes as it means I am not making surplus that could end up un-sold! Being made to order also means if you don’t think you fit the size paramaters available, just email and I should be able to cater to you. I will endeavour to get orders to you as soon as possible, but if you need it for a specific date do not hesitate to message me prior to buying and we can work something out.
These corsets are not boned but are strengthened by the outer fabric being bonded to the lining. Being not boned makes them more comfortable than a traditional corset but still structurally sound enough to cinch you in. All orders will come with the appropriate ribbon to lace up the corset.
*Corset Top = Straight bottom hem. Classic Corset = Pointed front.
XS 22-24 28-30 S 26-28 32-34 M 30-32 36-38 L 34-36 40-42 XL 38-40 44-46
If you are on the cusp of a size (for instance 25" waist) I would advise sizing down if you want that classic 18th century wench look, the corset should still fit fine, due to the nature of them being lace up. Otherwise it will fit more like a top, although this is of course personal preference!
- Due to the delicate nature of these corsets they are best being hand washed, alternatively I tested and you can wash under 30 on a short wash!
- Outer of the corsets is 100% cotton, with satin binding and metal eyelets, so they should be pretty sound but still treat them with care as they are totally hand made.
