This "shield" is made of 13 mm (1/2") flat steel bones to support the sides of the corset. Use it for corsets you wear often to protect their own boning from bending or breaking.
Based on museum reference.
Steel bones are covered in cotton cases, the belt is positioned on grosgrain ribbon. You can either tie it on your waist before putting on the corset, or add a couple of loops on the sides of the corset itself to tie the shield.
Offered in 4 basic colors, but you can ask for another one in the personalization box.
Standard size is ~15 cm (6") wide boned area with 23-28 cm (9-11") long bones. If you'd like it smaller or larger, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
