Sweet Nothings NYC is a brilliant blog resource, particularly for full bust women who don't want to sacrifice support for beautiful lingerie. She's recently focused more on corsets, with wonderful insights into buying, wearing, and styling corsets. In Part 1 of her series on her custom corset journey with Angela Friedman, she starts by explaining her own, very common, hesitations: "Compared to bras and panties, however, corsets can be both intimidating and cost-prohibitive: from a fit, comfort, and price tag point of view, shopping for corsets and figuring out your fit requires a much larger investment of time, energy, and money than almost any other piece of lingerie (except maybe latex?)."

Onto the fittings! In Part 2 of A Custom Corset Journey, we delve into the multiple fittings required for a fully custom sized corset for a client who has both a large cup size and is quite tall. (It required a special order of extra-long boning and a busk, the front closure, as we didn't stock a long enough size for ready to wear corsets.) Because the client's size was somewhat in-flux throughout the process, we did 1 measurement fitting and 3 mock up toile fittings prior to making the final corset. Many corsets can be made effectively with only 1 mock up fitting, but with the client's weight loss, we determined the extra fittings were worth it.

Please note that as of September 2021, we have phased out all of our corset designs and are no longer offering custom corsetry. Thank you to all of our wonderful customers who have purchased our corsets throughout the years! However, now we are only producing lingerie and lounge wear items.

Curated by Valerie Steele, chief curator at The Museum at FIT, the exhibition included approximately 100 corsets and corset-inspired fashions, as well as archival photographs, posters, books, caricatures, and advertisements that document the evolution of corsetry. More than the typical display of "historic costume," this exhibition explored the social-psychology of clothing. By showing how corsets have fashioned the ideal body and by presenting a wide variety of different kinds of corsets, the exhibition brilliantly demonstrated how the meaning of clothing is constantly being redefined.

The exhibition began with the history of corsetry. The earliest object on display was a rare iron corset from the 16th century that was probably intended as an orthopedic device to correct spinal deformities. Also on view were 18th-century boned stays as well as a wide range of 19th-centmy Victorian corsets, including a maternity corset, a child's corset, and a man's corset.

The exhibition challenged viewers by asking many provocative questions. How tightly did the average Victorian woman lace her corset? Are the medical horror stories about corsets true? Did corsets really deform ribs and cut livers in half? Featured in the exhibition was an x-ray showing a woman's ribs after years of wearing tight corsets. Modem women no longer wear corsets, but have they simply internalized the corset through diet, exercise, and surgery?

The second section of the exhibition explored the corset's impact on 20th century fashion. Couturiers such as Charles James had created corset-inspired fashions as early as the 1930s, but the real explosion began in the 1980s when the Punks transformed underwear into outerwear. On view were contemporary corset fashions ranging from the feminine to the fierce, including fantasy and fetish styles. Feminine corset-inspired fashion, emphasizing "the female form divine," included evening gowns by Christian Lacroix, Gianfranco Ferré , Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, John Galliano at Dior, Josie Natori, Yves Saint Laurent, and Vivienne Westwood. Inspiration drawn from the Belle Epoch and the 18th century was seen in many of these pieces. Fierce corsets -- equally sexy but designed in the style of the femme fatale -- were represented by Alexander McQueen, Hussein Chalayan, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler, and Versace.

A panel discussion was held on Tuesday, March 7, 2000 at 6:00 pm. The discussion was moderated by Valerie Steele, chief curator of The Museum at FIT and curator of the exhibition. Panelists included Alden O'Brien of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Museum in Washington, DC, who spoke on historic corsets, Dr. Lynn Kutsche, who focused on the medical aspects of corsets, Josie Natori, lingerie designer, and Dean Sonnenberg, a corsetier working in New York.

In the late 19th century, Dr. Lucien Warner, a prominent physician gave up his Cortlandville, NY practice to begin a new career on the medical lecturing circuit, specializing in women's health issues. Dr. Warner lectured about the harmful effects of the rigid steel-boned corsets of the time. After seeing how little influence his lectures had on women's attitudes towards fashion, he returned to his New York home and began a more aggressive approach to fighting the ills caused by the corset.[8]

Dr. Warner's Coraline Health Corsets, as they were marketed,[10] were made up of two pieces of cloth which were laced or clasped together. These revolutionary undergarments also featured shoulder straps and more flexible boning and lateral bust supports[11] made of Coraline, a product of the fibers of the Mexican Ixtle plant.[12][13] By 1876, this new, more flexible design had grown in popularity so much so that the company moved its manufacturing operations to Bridgeport, CT, where approximately 1,200 people were employed to produce approximately 6,000 corsets daily.[14] In 1883 Harper's Bazaar advertised the four most popular corsets in America as Dr. Warner's models[15] The brothers claimed patents and trademarks on "health corset" and they had international manufacturing.[16] The success of the Warners' designs had made the brothers millionaires and in 1894 they retired and turned control of the company over to De Ver's son, D.H. and the Warner Brothers partnership was changed to a corporation. 041b061a72
