*This style is worn over a Victorian riding corset - wearing it with modern undergarments will likely be detrimental to the fit ( the bust position). Riding corsets can be purchased from the shop as stock items or ordered bespoke made.
The stock habits are all priced very attractively due to the fact that they are all on a bit of experimental side as I am working on perfecting the patterns for various sizes and styles - they also have been worn for a photoshoot, some around horses, so there might be a speck of mud or a few stray horse hair that escaped our cleaning service :-)
Bespoke habit in this style starts from £650 plus fabrics
