The spoon busk (front fastening) was popular in the late Victorian period, and it widens towards the bottom of the busk and curves inward slightly.
This accommodates the natural curve of a woman's tummy. It is
ideal for those wanting to achieve an authentic late bustle era
silhouette as it is based on an 1880s pattern, and the spoon busk is
very specific to that time. It is also a very comfortable corset shape.
This corset is shown in black cotton sateen with yellow embroidered flossing. Many different flossing styles are possible.
