Period Corsets Ode to Brocades

Finding the right material to match your corset
So, you've finally chosen your dream corset. The style is what you've been looking for, with all the right curves in the perfect places and all the best details to highlight your natural assets. But there's one more thing to decide. Which fabric?

From practical to elegant, finding the right fabric for your corset can be a challenge: a classic cotton coutil for something simple or a pretty satin or brocade for something a little more delicate looking.

At Period Corsets, we love the versatility of our cotton coutils. This authentic corseting fabric  was designed just for this purpose with its tight herringbone texture, there is no stretching! It's practical, sturdy and dependable. But what if you want something just a little more elegant--  something that captures that vintage boudoir feel while maintaining the strength and durability needed? The answer is our brocade coutils.

Available in an array of colors, brocade coutils feature a light sheen and a pretty, tonal rose pattern throughout.

brocades come in a range of colors from pastels to darks
