Conventional corsets can be hot and sweaty during summertime or in warmer climates. The oldest tulle corset I've seen is estimated to be from 1875, so the idea is not new!
Fast forward to today; there has been a huge resurgence of summer corsetry, and they're as strong as ever with the creation of new fibers and creative engineering. Mesh and net corsets are made with all different types of materials: bobbinet, Aida cloth, nylon corsetry mesh, polyester tulle, horsehair, sports jersey, and lace itself.
With the addition of almost 50 (!) new corsets, this is the largest Guided Gallery resource on my site. It was hard work and I'd love if you'd take a look!
Featured above is the Un|Seelie bobbinet and lace plunge overbust by Karolina Laskowska, photographed by Sparklewren, and modeled by Yazzmin Newell.
Polly is a collaboration between myself and True Corset - after testing the popularity of the Artemis, it was clear that we needed a curvier waspie for short-waisted folks.
Polly has the same 8-inch rib spring and 12-inch hip spring as the Artemis, but it's only 7 inches long at the princess seam!
Additionally, the Polly has a CONICAL ribcage for those who dislike the cupped look. Here's what the Polly looks like on a petite model (who might be wearing the size 18"), and myself (who is longer-waisted) wearing a sample in the size 22", so you can see how it looks on different bodies 💕 Click on any of the pics to learn more about Polly.
