The Start Corset

Postby haabet » Fri Jul 20, 2007 1:01 pm

The problem by start corset is as the lace press in, when you lace up. And the corset have need to lengthen the waist and extend the chest, so quick as the corsetée do not been tired of the play.

In the old days they have great experience in start corset, but any understanding for which reason they do as they always had do.

The girl start in a corset by strap, named shoulder corset, pear of stays or Redresseur corset. Or alternative they start in a corset by rigid boned back. Or alternative they used a detachable shoulder straps.

In a women's magazine a woman ask for help by the corset. And a other woman answer as she have need of shoulder-straps by cross in front and in back. But, these techniques is unknown today.

I claim a corsètes never been commonly before We understand and use these techniques again.

Peter, try as I might. I can't understand what it is that you are either trying to say or trying to ask. :(

My best guess is that you are seeking help making a corset - if so, you might want to try the forums here: http://www.corsetheaven.com/forum/default.asp They aren't the busiest forums, but there are a fair number of women there who have shared a great deal of information about corset design.

Corsets with shoulder straps were much more common when stays were a more common item of clothing. I had the impression that the straps were used as an aid to correct posture rather than for allowing the garment to be laced more tightly, but I am no expert by any means.

You can find some images of contemporary corset wearers in custom items, complete with shoulder straps, on Thomas Lierse's Staylace site.

But Annalai is not a beginner. In old days, it was the girls first corset which had shoulder straps.
