Silk/Rayon Edwardian corset

 This silk-rayon corset is closer in color the the full-length from photo. As usual, a corset on a dress form doesn’t photograph well since the form isn’t malleable and won’t apply even pressure the way a human body would. This corset is a period-correct Edwardian style. Over-bust corsets weren’t very common, but they were found. Usually corsets ended below the bust and a camisole worn beneath the corset contained the “spillage.” This started out as a replica of Rose’s corset in Titanic, until it was decided to use this brocade and skip the lace. The lines and cut is the same, but the similarity ends there.
