And It’s Corsets And Coffee At No. 11…

Today it’s corsets and coffee here at No. 11! 🙂

Corset Construction

Reproduction Victorian and Edwardian Era corsets are widely available these days in all manner of configurations, fabrics, and colors. We at Lily Absinthe take pride in every corset we craft- these are not “costume” items but rather fully-functional foundation garments designed to the individual and custom designed to deliver optimal results. In fact, we would argue that corsets are the essential foundation for any period outfit in that they act as the foundation and give an out its basic silhouette. Just as important, a properly constructed and fitted corset will ensure the wearer’s comfort at the same time. There is no reason for anyone to have to suffer in order to wear good fashion. 🙂
