This is our modern corset named Damaris.
Our Damaris corsets are designed to make you look like you’re stepping out of a historical drama, and ready to live your modern life with a bit of old-timey romance.
These renaissance inspired corsets with beautiful patterned fabrics can be made on a variety of different colors and fabrics, as you can see in the pictures. Some are made out of patterned woven cotton brocade with metallic inserts, while others are made of synthetic blends, taffeta, patterned cotton and so on.
All of these corsets are drafted and handmade by us. We made the patterns ourselves in our home atelier, chose the fabrics for their quality, cut and sewn the corsets with the utmost care and regard for the type of fabric it’s made of and with the durability of the item in mind.
Properly cared for, this garment should last for many years.
Because the Damaris corset is highly adjustable, as one’s weight fluctuates through the years, the wearer doesn’t need to repurchase the corset when the wearer naturally goes up or down in size.
Wear and versatility has been the most important factors in designing these garments: the wearer can dress up or down these corsets and wear them with different outfits, from casual outfits with jeans and a turtleneck as depicted in the pictures to more fancier outfits for elegant occasions.
These corsets can also be worn to renaissance fairs and such, if worn in combination with other such items like long full skirts, chemises, aprons and so on.
All of these corsets are highly adjustable.
The pattern includes 2 side panels (one on each side) from where the wearer can adjust the corset to their specific size. The corsets are fully boned with synthetic boning. They have 8 bones, with the purpose of giving the garment its shape, and mildly supporting the wearers bust.
While a lot of though and care was put into the design and construction of these garments, these are fashion items and not corsets meant for tightlacing or for remodeling one’s body.
Please wear this item as it was intended.
Care instructions: This item is not designed to be worn next to bare skin, and should be worn over another garment (T-shirt, chemise, blouse, camisole etc.). If worn over another garment, as instructed, the corset does not need to be washed, as the garment worn underneath will protect the corset from sweat or skin oils. If the garment gets dirty, it is advised to wash it by hand with soap in lukewarm water, and hang to dry or dry laid flat on a towel. We do not recommend washing it in the washing machine and drying it in a tumble drier. If this is done (washing machine/ tumble drier), the corset can be damaged.
