Ride in style with our Victorian Riding Corset!

The restrictive-looking clothing of the 19th century didn't stop ladies from riding horses. But they needed a corset for more athelic pursuits.  The Riding Corset was born. With boning only above the waist and the lower panels flexible, the riding corset produces the fashionable shape while allowing equestriennes to move.  Our Riding Corset based on surviving examples is both easy to make and wear. 

Fits busts 28" through 60" and waists 24" through 52". All sizes in one envelope. 
Or order a Made to Measure pattern in your personal measurements.

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
