  1. I've just finished the corset bodice for Feb and I'm now working on a caged corset design which is probably one of the simplest designs actually - channels of boning basically held in place in three places: at the waistband and the top and bottom. If you look at Victorian caged corsets they usually had a hip gore also so I may work this into the design as an option. I like the fact that the bones are free to move over and around the ribs and hips - there have to be sufficient bones there though to prevent that flesh being forced out of those windows! It could also be possible to add bobbinet or a stretchy fabric as a liner so no flesh is visible. A versatile and attractive corset that looks good particularly over dresses.
