Damsel in this Dress Corsets
Freya Corset in Matte Black
*When measuring! Measure your high waist, usually above the belly button or around the smallest part. Hold measuring tape as snug as possible, and that gives you an idea of how much "squish" your own unique shape has! (However, if you know for a fact that you are blessed either in the bust area or the hips area, I always recommend adding an inch to this squeezed tight size. We want everything to fit everywhere!)
* Keep in mind that our corsets some in size "ranges"! When we say that a corset will fit a 35-37" waist, for example, this means that the ACTUAL corset itself measures 35 inches when pulled taut. However, you could also wear that 35" if you had a 36" or a 37" waist, it would just have a small gap in the lacings!
*This is a very exclusive pattern from us! The detail work and all of the curving lines and shapes make it expensive to produce, but a joy to behold! I (Michelle) designed this pattern because I wanted something that had a powerful female warrior vibe, but could also easily transition into Comic Con costumes, Wasteland wear, and any other epic sub-culture that is not necessarily based upon vague historical accuracy.
*The Freya is based on our Torian corset for the base (like everything else in the shop with the exception of the Wench Corset.) and it has tabs that come up on the sides of the bust to attach to an upper shoulder piece. These straps have an adjustable modern looking buckle that is sewn and riveted in place and will help you fit it to right beneath your collar bone. This whole set up does a dazzling job of framing the bosomage area, by the way! (wink, wink!)
*It has a beautiful little arch in the back that you can use to also adjust the height on the shoulders. By having a keyhole back, you can also wear this with fairy wings or different costume rigs!
*Boned in front with our Signature rubber-dipped Fiberglass Rods *Sewn with extra heavy duty tarp thread *Spring Steel boning that is extra thickness and rigidity imported from Europe *Reinforced on seams with extra piece of upholstery *Has an extra layer of upholstery adhered with industrial grade adhesive to the underside and sandwiched into where the grommets are placed, for extra strength and protection against grommets EVER pulling out!
