Laughing Moon #113 Under Bust Corsets Pattern
Ladies' and Gentlemens' Underbust Corset Pattern
Yes, gentlemen wore corsets in the Victorian and Edwardian eras! Must have that proper stance and upright figure, right?
For the ladies, sometimes all you need is a little waist support. This pattern provides you both options.
Views A and B are ladies' corsets and View C is a man's.
View A is a ribbon corset. It is constructed of alternating pieces of fabric and ribbon. It has a busk in the front and lacing in the back. The bones are placed between two layers of fabric. This corset was popular from about 1899 to 1909.

View C is a gentleman's corset made with coutil, a busk, lacing in back, and boning tape.
