Pin It

You asked and Period Corsets has answered. We know budgets are tight and your time is precious so Period Corsets has recently launched our newest line designed specifically for our education, theater, T.V. and film clients. Period Corsets Rental Program is a selection of corset styles available for short-term or long-term rentals. Designed with you in mind to help keep your production under budget and to streamline your costume needs.

Choose from our four different corset styles that span several eras. Each style is based on one of four of our most popular silhouettes, streamlined and patterned to cover a range of eras.

Our "Judy" corset covers your needs for the 18th century. Similar to our c. 1770 Judith, this style features the conical shaping required for this era, with a lovely point at the bottom center front and a bust line shaping that pushes up the bosom. 

The "Sophie" is an 18th-century tabbed corset and works for fantasy and fairytale looks as well. Similar to our other popular tabbed corset styles, it features adjustable center front lacing and laced-on, removable straps. 

The Juliette is a classic 19th century hourglass shape and can be used for a great range of silhouettes. Lightly boned, this versatile corset smooths the line of the body from bust to hip. 

The "Lillian" recreates a corset silhouette popular from the 1870s to the turn of the 20th century. This underbust style waist cincher defines a lovely curved waist and features a graceful point at the top and bottom edges. 

All four styles are available in our full range of sizes, Small-2XL. Similar to our standard stock corsets, these corsets feature alterable side seams to allow for a customized fit for each actress. They are constructed from the same quality materials that you can find in our usual catalog of garments, 100% cotton coutil in our neutral "natural " color with steel boning throughout and sturdy white cotton lacing.

Rental packages and pricing is dependent on the length of your rental period and your specific needs. Let us know the era you're costuming, how many pieces you need, and how long you will need them and we will provide you with your rental package quote. We're here to help you!

A Coastal Wedding on the Scottish Shores- Period Corsets on Location

Pin It

The wild winds of Scotland's western coastline became the perfect setting for an intimate destination wedding. Seattle couple Shane and Kimberly traveled back to his family's roots for their private seaside nuptials.

To represent his family line, Shane wore a traditional kilt in his family's tartan while Kimberly wore a bespoke gown and corset by Period Corsets, in collaboration with Zeita Studios. 

Something Blue- Kimberly in her bespoke gown

When dreaming of her ideal gown, bride Kimberly envisioned flowing layers of fluffy tulle in varying shades of blue to resemble the waves of the Scottish shores.

 Over the years Period Corsets has had the pleasure to work with many brides, helping them achieve their bridal visions. For this project, we collaborated with the wonderful Zeita Studios, a Seattle based bridal company that specializes in bespoke gowns. They selected one of our corsets as an important element of their inspired ensemble.

To compliment her wild and windy layered skirt, Period Corsets created a beautiful matching corset in pale blue brocade. Our classic hourglass shaped c. 1880 Alice corset was the ideal silhouette that Kimberly was looking for with the particular shaping that she had requested. Something curvy, supportive, and powerful to represent the strength and fluidity of the ocean.

A beautiful start to a beautiful life! Thank you to Zeita Studio for including Period Corsets in this special project. And thank you Kimberly for wearing it so well!
