This is the back view with all elastic ruching, a technique used in vintage originals! Each tiny row of elastic is stitched one by one by our couture seamstresses to follow the contours of the pattern.
The back also has boning to keep it snug against your body.
We also love it because the back view is completely clean and free of the “plumbing and hardware” that a zipper brings to the back view of a dress. And with this much elastic ruching, the size of the body fit is a bit more adaptable.
These corselettes can be matched with vintage skirts and even jeans.
Alternately, you can request that your corselette be made with a boned, flat panel in the back with a center back zipper and the ruching only at the sides. It’s easier to get into although you may need someone to zip up the back since the fit is snug; more snug that the all- ruched back.
