Women’s Brocade Corset & Jacket – Review

Women’s Brocade Corset & Jacket – Review

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Tightlacing and Corsets

Women’s Brocade Corset & Jacket from Amazon.com

This is a delightful corset that looks smart, with a steampunk flair I very much enjoy.

It has just the right amount of feminine frill for my taste, as well as the option to feel modest with the jacket on, or more racy and daring, by simply shedding the accessory.

The Women’s Brocade Corset is a slimming in appearance with an elegantly curved mid panel.  This corset also has an over-bolero (or jacket) that covers the shoulders.  The jacket comes down far enough to cover the exposed portion of the upper back, for either comfort or modesty.

MSS_8352

Inside fully lined

This is a sturdy corset, well manufactured with quality materials.  It is fully lined, another sign of quality manufacturing.  The Women’s Brocade Corset & Jacket should be expected to provide an excellent lifetime of service and wear as a fashionable part of a steampunk, or Victorian styled wardrobe.

The latch detailing looks very nice, and is easier to operate than standard corset closures, but that comes with it’s own issue.  While easier to get into, they latches also have a bit of a maddening tendency to open without warning as the night progresses.  A little mindfulness helps here, if I remember to occasionally run a hand down my corst’s front, it assures tht the beautiful fancy closures actually stay closed.

Master Michael tells me it looks great all by itself!  But, pair this beauty up with a pair of pants or a skirt and you are set for a fancy night on the town.  It fit (and felt) great right out of the box and was not at all uncomfortable during it’s break in period.

This was a great surprise, being the first corset we purchased that was not custom built to my measurements.  I can say without a doubt that it spurred us on to purchase more ready-made corsets from the same source.  At last count, there were 16 different corsets in my tightlacing collection, so I can say it was very inspiring to find this affordable corset fitting my needs so well.

MSS_8353

Nice details

I’ve worn this corset to both a play party and a munch, it always seemed to turn heads.  It’s almost conservative in it’s feminine grace, yet it’s got a stylish flair that is both flirty and sexy.

I love it!

Evaluating fit and quality – Women’s Brocade Corset & Jacket

5 stars concerning visual aesthetics Overbust corset with Jacket

MSS_8350

Nice top-stitching

4 stars– fabric – texture, smoothness, color, pattern and placement smooth brocade rich brown in color with a feminine mid-panel in black.

4 stars

– finish of the binding, busk area, back grommets, and lining rear modesty panel

– thread, stitches, and stitch lines – color, length, and how straight Good tread, tight close stitching. long enough to hide my tummy flaws 4 stars

4 stars

– embellishments including garter embellishments 4 garter attachment points- garters not included, has a generous 4 inch modesty panel

Posts are great and fringe detail

– grommets – spacing and evenness 5 steampunk front easy to close posts, lacing grommets evenly spaced 3 stars

boning – type – High quality corsets have a lot of boning 12 steel bones 4 stars

5 starslacing cord – type and color Black braided cording that laces easily.

MSS_8354

Ample privacy shield

3 starsHigh quality corsets look “hard” The biggest, number one indicator of real corset quality is wrinkles. Some of this is dependent on the fabric: satin, cotton, silk, polybrocade, etc.  This is not a hard brocade, but it will be just right for my need.

4 stars– price  at Amazon  $89.00 – $99.00  Price may depend on sizing.

A quick word about corsets

Quality corsets are going to cost a few bucks.  I’ve corsets in my collection ranging from $40, all the way up to a custom beauty that was $400.

Part of evaluating the fit and quality of a new (or any corset for that matter) is concern for your personal comfort.  A corset may have a reputtion in some circles as a torture device, but a well fitting corset need not be uncomfortable at all.  You need to be careful of adjusting the corset properly on your torso.

At least some discomfort will surely be experienced during the seasoning process, especially if you are unused to structured and boned garments. They feel quite different than do unstructured, flowing sports clothing made of t-shirt or stretch material. When you try on your new corset you might adopt minimal expectations about fit or comfort until you take time to adjust your corset properly.

Even then, the corset will not fit you well nor feel the best because it will be stiff and unyielding until you actually wear it a bit and “season” it, then make minor adjustments to your lifestyle and habits that work with, rather than against, a restricted tummy and less flexible torso. A rule of thumb of at least 20 to 30 separate wearings before a corset is properly “seasoned” and you are set to go out and carry out your activities of daily living in relative comfort.

I also advise donning a corset about two hours before an important event when you want to look your best and most tight-laced, yet remain in comfort.

In the future I hope to include other elements of fit in my evaluation of new corsets. These will include visual aesthetics, functionality, and durability of the corset over time with extended wear.
