A clever combination of Victorian waist shaping and the Baroque smooth front, good for historical reenactors looking for an all-purpose corset, wonderful for all modern occasions as well. This corset has shoulder straps that adjust with a ribbon tie in the front. Also saucy in leather, the shoulder straps buckle. With slightly narrower hips than our Victorians, the waist curve is slightly less pronounced. Two style variations are possible - with contrasting gussets and shoulder straps, or with a wider front panel which creates a wonderful place to showcase an elegant brocade. This cleavage enhancing and versatile style highlights an athletic build better than some of our other corsets.
