Meet the Period Corsets® Grommeter-- the Machine and the Man.
O'Rion, long-time Period Corsets® employee, demonstrates grommeting the center back panels of a corset using our mechanical foot press grommet die setter, otherwise know as a grommet machine and fondly referred to by our shop as... The Grommeter!
#1-- One must focus on the task at hand while grommeting.
Also Take note:
#2-- The top lever has two positions; while the lever is over the left side it engages the cutting die. Observe as O'Rion cuts the holes in the garment.
#3--O'Rion switches the lever to the right side engaging the setting die. He adds a grommet washer, followed by the garment, then the on-top grommet.
#4-- In orchestrated motion O'Rion employs the foot press when needed for each cutting and setting action.
In conclusion: a Simple, Elegant and Efficient process, by-words for our work at Period Corsets®.

Take a look at the newest addition to our line of historic corsets.
The Louisa c. 1725 corset creates a shapely, triangular form, using 1/4" steel and spiral bones, and two layers of coutil. The corset is cut to enhance and lift the bust, and shape the waist. The waist tabs, cut in one with the corset, curve over the hips. The shoulder straps are optional, as this style was often seen without straps.
