Basbleu Cincher

By Kiss Me Deadly


Unusual blue and black wraparound waist cincher based on a vintage swimming corset.

A while back I found some pictures of a swimming corset, made from fine wool in 1902. This is clearly a terrible, terrible idea, and yet I was fascinated by the overlapping shape at the back. So here is the 2017 reimagining - back to front and strictly no bathing. Actually, it would probably survive, but still. The back is black satin, whilst the front Y panels are blue, tying in a sash at the back, with flexible plastic boning. Shown over the knicker, it would also work over outerwear.
