Goddess Bodice

Starting at: $129.00

Our Goddess Bodice is based, in part, on historical research into Elizabethan corsets. While a corset is an undergarment, this bodice is built with all the sturdiness, boning and shaping power without having to wear two items.

We have taken some liberties with history, however, so you should not consider this a historically accurate item.

The Goddess Bodice is an extremely adjustable, comfortable and uninhibiting bodice. The steel boning is carefully placed to provide a flattering shape and maximum support for your assets, be they great or small.

You should feel comfortable enough to engage in any faire activity, whether shopping or riding on horseback. The Goddess Bodice is the result of several years of testing various designs "in the field". This design has proven itself during numerous activities including grueling 14 hour work days in extreme heat and cold while sword fighting, singing and dancing.

We feel confident that you will fall in love with it as we have!

Features:

  • Back & side laces.
  • Adjustable shoulder straps.
  • 1/2" flat spring steel boning in front and back for optimal shaping and support.
  • Seams finished with black bias tape then double top-stitched.
  • Lined with heavy black canvas.
  • Bone casings sewn on inside of lining to prevent boning from damaging bodice fabric.
  • Extremely adjustable, comfortable and uninhibiting.
