Period Corsets® undercover is at work again with Tony winner Kelli O'Hara in the award-winning production of Rodger & Hammerstein's "The King and I". Period Corsets® made our c. 1880 style "Alice" corset for the actress to provide shaping underneath her fabulous gowns.

Costume designer Patrick Bevilaqua shared his and Ms. O'Hara's pleasure with her new corset, "My actress LOVES her new corset. It arrived this afternoon and was on stage tonight. In the past 10 months I have been through 3 other corsets and your corset is the first one that feels comfortable on her.
Thank you again for making this happen so quickly and effortlessly. I appreciate the work you and your team have done to make my job a bit easier."

At Period Corsets®, we love working hands on with designers schedules and needs. For Ms. O'Hara, we were able to make some minor custom changes to insure that she had a corset built for her body, one that would be comfortable throughout her many performances. 

Bevilaqua later wrote, "Our actress went on vacation this week and she made sure to tell me again how wonderful her corset feels...I want everyone to know how wonderful your products and customer service was for me."
