Custom Order Regency Long Transition Corset Upon Request
BEFORE PURCHASING, PLEASE READ:
With a little one in the house, I’m only able to work part time so space in my schedule is extremely limited. The current wait time is approx. 3 months.
This listing is for an early Regency long or transition corset. The corset is made of unbleached cotton coutil (shown in pic 5) and edged with white bias tape. It laces together in front and at the shoulders and is stiffened throughout with flexible steel boning. The long corset was first used in the 1790s but continued to be preferred through the Regency by women with fuller figures. Unlike the short corset, the longer length controls the tummy a bit while still giving plenty of lift to the bust.
The Regency long corset is still considerably shorter than the previous and proceeding styles. They give more shoulder room than earlier 18th Century corsets and maintain a more natural shape than hourglass Victorian corsets.

"Fabulous! Perfect it and amazing quality!"
"Words cannot describe how much I love this. It's so beautifully made and fits perfectly. The craftsmanship is beyond my expectations. If only I could wear it outside of my gown at the Jane Austen Festival!"
"Perfect, comfortable fit and wonderful workmanship. Easy on and off with front lacing. QUITE a change in one's frontage-- I thought those 1790 fashion drawings were exaggerations...and they're not!"
"I received my corset and the workmanship is so neat and sturdy-looking. I'm so impressed with Beth's work. It was a bit of a wait, but it was well worth it!"
**Made and shipped right on time! Thank you so much, I love it! :D -Candy
**Wonderful item and customer service! Fits perfectly and arrived on time! Thank you! -Liz
**Wow, Beth! I had no idea of the transformational effects of a well-constructed Regency long corset on the female anatomy. I am agog and very pleased! My Jane Austen-style Regency gowns now fit like they are supposed to, particularly the drawstring styles, which had been hitting me across the bust when I wore modern underpinnings instead of beneath the bust. The corset fits well and is sewn well. Beth gave me very explicit directions on how to measure myself and was patient with my questions. -Alicia
