Modern equestrian corsetry and waistcoats - Shoplivepages::jquery();?>
Our new product and design!
Whereas we have made a few corseted waistocat before, mostly as a modern wear, usualy with military decoration, we are now expanding the range to a different kind of waistcoat, which, though still following the esthetics, serves an important function - bounce control!
I have devised one for myself, for horse riding, as due to costochonditis I was unable to wear sports bra for a longer periods of time. Bras were not an option - ut my usual riding corset worked great and I was able to spent hours in the saddle without any discomfort.
The riding waistcoats are a hybrid a traditional waistocoat with a riding corset combined to provide female riders with a comfortable wear. The waistocat do give a nice smooth silhouette, but do ot constrict the waist as much as traditional corsets - just enough to support the garment and the wearer. The tight fit and boning as well as higher front keeps the 'assets' in check, provide gentle back support and shaping.
The product is still in development as I am tweaking the pattern and playing with a variety of techniques but since the demand after the first fun video ( you can see it here) was so big, we decided to get a few more experimental models made - they will cost less that the target product, but in the meantime we will be collecting feedback from the wearers :-)
The line will be available in basic model ( 1 layer corsetry fabric), or a step up- 2 layer with a fashionable cotton or tweed overlay. a huting variety, with a hidden front opening, in canary yellow or tattersal wool is also being researched.
Bespoke orders are accepted as well, please be aware that you will be required to attend 1-2 fittings and that the price will be much higher that the off the peg items. We are usually booked up at least 6 months in advice, so there may be some wait too!
below a few FAQ answered...
What are the waistcoats? they are created to help support a bust for those ladies who cannot wear bras ( like me) or find them uncomfortable. If you have a well fitted bra that works for your, you don’t need one. If you are riding in a corset and are happy with it - you don’t need one either. Please note I am making a clear distinction here between need and want... :-)
Please note that wearing an incorrect size or incorrect use of a corset might result in health issues. Corsets can be beneficial in certain conditions - but detrimental in others, so if you have a back/ spine/rib condition please check with your doctor prior to purchasing one. A well fitted corset should feel like a hug and should not cause any discomfort.
If you need a corset to help with any issues, please consult and order bespoke with a profesional medical corsetiere who would be able to design the amount of support suitable to your needs.
It is recommended that only ladies over 18 years old wear and buy corsets.
Prior Attire will not be liable for any medical issues caused by incorrect fit or incorrect/prolonged wearing etc of our corsets.
