Pop Antique corsets combine the playfulness of ready-to-wear fashion with the quality of construction of a "real" corset. Pop Antique is committed to the principles of sustainability and I have been working to integrate this into my line.
Pop Antique corsets feature:
• organic cotton canvas strength layer
• stabilized fashion fabric
• reinforced seams
• steel bones
• concealed waist tape
• two-part grommets
My own preference is to bone throughout the body with a combination of spiral and flat steel bones. I also draft my corsets to compress only the waist, leaving the ribs unconstrained. This not only keeps your corset comfortable even after hours of wear, but allows for a bigger reduction, faster. I test my corset patterns on myself as well as other experienced corset models to ensure their comfort.
High quality construction, an exacting fit, and wearable style all meet in Pop Antique corsets.
The cupped rib cage is integral to the fit of Pop Antique corsets, and a sash-like ribbon at the waist draws extra attention to elegant curves.
