If you’re looking for a high quality corset that’s going to last for years to come, it’s well worth considering the materials used to make the corset. Generally speaking, most steel boned corsets have been made to last, and so in turn should have been designed and made using high-quality materials.
Steel bones are made from galvanized spring wire and are available in pre cut lengths or in continuos rolls. As the majority of our corsets contain this type of boning, our tailors keep this in stock in a continuos roll. There are many advantages of this type of bonig especially when making corsets.
It is a very strong material helping to create the perfect hourglass figure but also flexbile allowing our tailors to sew it in to curved channels on our corset designs and therefore allowing the corset to fit to the curves of your body.
When choosing your corset and the design, opt for a sturdy canvas, brocade, leather or satin as these fabrics are more durable and won’t wear after just a few months of use.
Also look for corsets that have an interior lining, as these will be more durable as well as more comfortable. In addition, interior linings will also protect the corset from sweat and oil naturally produced by the body, to ensure there’s no early deterioration caused.
Our tailors have created this premium corset liner, designed to sit underneath your corset to feel softer on the skin as well as protecting the inside of your corset from any stains or marks.
Made with 75% natural bamboo and Spandex it has a super soft touch against your body. In addtion, it has sweat wicking and antimicobacterial properties.

Grommet spacing design
Another element to consider if grommet spacing. You might not have ever noticed that the gromets are spaced differently from corset to corset, but in some cases they are spaced uniformly, and in others they are closer to the waistline and closer together too. It’s only worth considering grommet spacing if you want to lace your corset really tight, which isn’t always recommended anyway. If you do plan on lacing your corset tighter than the average person, look at designs that space the grommets closer together and near the waistline.
