CORSETS IN THE PRESS!

Friday, 09 October 2015  |  Posted By Vollers Corsets

As always corsets are in the press! They've been seen on WAG Kimberely looking stunning and then there was Maggie Smith talking about the toll of making the final series of Downton and why she never wants to see a corset again! Well we are all sad to see the end of Downton looming and sorry to hear Countess Violet was uncomfortable in her corset although in the final series which is the 1920’s I am surprised the cast were wearing corsets?

Monday, 05 October 2015  |  Posted By Vollers Corsets

There are a number things to look for and ask before buying a corset. Below is an outline of the things that we think are the most important to look for and ask. 1. Fabric: It’s all about quality not quantity! A corset with 4, 5 sometimes even six layers does not mean the corset is stronger if the fabric is no good for corsetry. The inner lining of the corset needs to be strong but soft to your skin this is why on all of our corsets the inner lining is made from 65% cotton so that it's soft against your skin and 35% polyester to give our corsets world class strength.

Tuesday, 21 May 2013  |  Posted By Vollers Corsets

Corsets are the perfect lingerie for a fun night in the bedroom or a ‘wow’ look out on the town. If you love wearing corsets, chances are you have more than one, or at least plan on purchasing more. Since you can’t wear all of these garments at once, storage becomes a necessity, and doing it properly is essential.

You wouldn’t carelessly stuff these items of clothing into a drawer, so why would you treat your new black corset that way? What to do After Taking...
