Steel Boning 101

 

We receive a lot of questions about steel boning. So, we've decided to create a one-stop-shop where all of your questions can be easily answered!

Welcome to Steel Boning 101, where we'll cover what steel boning is, the incredible benefits of this construction, and some of our most frequently asked questions surrounding the topic! 

What Is Steel Boning?

Corsetry construction has undergone a lot of transformations over the centuries, largely influenced by the desired function of the corset during each time period.

From wood, ivory, and whalebone, to finally the introduction of steel boning in the mid-19th century, the purpose and focus of the corset function changed immensely.

Starting as a wearable, rigid cage used to reform shape, the function of corsets evolved in the early 1900s to become more of a fashion statement, supporting comfort and wearability.

The steel boning that was initially introduced on the market was known as "flat steel boning". This type of steel boning was thick, flat, and rounded at the edges, only bending slightly in one direction. 

As corsetry evolved, "spiral steel boning" was introduced. Spiral steel boning is also flat but consists of coiled steel.

This allowed for more flexibility and movement in all directions, bringing the corset closest to what we know it today.

For a deeper dive into the differences between flat steel and spiral steel boning, check out our in-depth compare and contrast here!

Now that you have a bit of background regarding how steel boning came to be, let's dive into some of the questions we get asked the most and clear them right up!
 
FAQs

"What kind of steel boning is in Atomic Jane Corsets?"

All of our Atomic Jane steel boned corsets are made of 100% spiral steel bones. The exception to this rule is the corsets we carry in our Premium line found in our Extra Curvy collection.

These corsets are constructed of both types of steel boning, the flat steel bones for maximum support with spiral steel bones throughout the rest of the bodice. 

The construction details and number of flat steel bones used will always be outlined in the description of the corset on the product purchase page!

"What is the difference in quality between the types of steel boning?"

When strictly talking quality, there is no difference between spiral steel boning and flat steel boning! The only difference here is the intended usage and result. 

The flat steel boning is more rigid, used strictly for reshaping and support, with little emphasis on comfort, whereas spiral steel boning allows a lot of movement and flexibility. 

The more expensive corsets are constructed using a combination of the two types of steel bones.

"What is the difference in price between the types of steel boning?"

Because flat steel boning is heavier, it does cost more than the spiral steel boning which is lighter and more flexible.

"How do I care for my steel boned corset"?

On each purchase page, you'll either be instructed to "Dry Clean Only" or "Hand Wash Only," depending on the delicacy of the material. 

Dry Clean Only: Because corsets require a special kind care, be selective when picking a dry cleaner! Try to go with a place with experience in costumes, bridal wear, etc., that is sure to understand how to properly and gently care for your corset. And don't be afraid to ask them if they have dry cleaned corsets before. If not, find out how they plan to clean it based on the material and boning.

Hand Wash Only: Wonderfully detailed instructions for washing your corset can be found on StayLace, but to sum it up, the best practice is to rinse in warm water with a non-biological detergent followed by a gentle rinse in cool water, then to roll it up in a towel and blot it dry. The key word here is gentle, gentle, gentle, so as to do everything necessary to extend the lifespan of your corset!

"Will my steel boned corset rust"?

You really want to wash your corset as little as possible.  Even though all modern-day steel boned corsets are coated for rust protection, it's best to submerge it in water as little as necessary.

We hope this little round-up of steel boning basics and frequently asked questions has been of great help in expanding your knowledge in the world of corsets!

We love being able to connect you with so many beautiful corsets on a daily basis, and helping you to improve your knowledge of understanding and caring for these beautiful pieces makes us very happy!

Spiral Steel Boning vs. Flat Steel Boning: What's the Difference?

03 August, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment

Steel Boned Corsets

A question that we address frequently here at Atomic Jane, we thought it would be super beneficial for us to tackle this topic head-on and clear everything up once and for all!

"What's the difference between spiral steel boning and flat steel boning?"

There's been a common misconception that the quality of spiral steel boning is "inferior" or "flimsy" in comparison to flat steel boning, but we're here to tell you that this is just simply not the case!

Let's take a little journey through some history of steel boning as well as the pros and cons of each of these types, and put this confusion to rest!

 

A Brief History of Steel Boning

steel boned corsets

Although corsetry dates all the way back to the 16th century, it wasn't until the mid-19th century that steel boning was introduced, replacing the previously used materials including wood, ivory, and bone.

The type of steel boning that was introduced during this time was what we know as "flat steel boning". The best word to describe this type of boning is rigid, as it only bends in one direction. This type of boning didn't allow for much movement or flexibility, with the emphasis solely placed on the support and reshaping of the waist.

Flashing forward into the early 1900's, the purpose and function of the corset evolved to actually consider the comfort of the wearer, and during this time, spiral steel boning was born! Flexibility increased, movement became possible, and a new era of corsetry was ushered in.

 

Spiral Steel Boning vs. Flat Steel Boning: The Pros & Cons

spiral and flat steel boning

Now that you have a better understanding of the evolution of steel boning, let's take a deeper dive into the differences between these two main types!

Spiral Steel Boning Pros

As pictured on the left in the photo above, spiral steel boning is in the form of a flattened coil, a design that allows for more fluid movement, able to move generously in any direction.

This design was revolutionary, allowing women to really move, and opening up greater opportunities for function and wear.

Herein lies the biggest pro of spiral steel boning: flexibility. Less constriction, more movement, and better fit are just some of the benefits arising from this flexibility, allowing the user to truly function while still being supported. 

Spiral Steel Boning Cons

The biggest pro of spiral steel boning is also it's biggest con (depending on your intended usage). If your focus is solely on rigid structure and reshaping, and less on comfort, the flexibility of the spiral steel boning may not be the choice for you.

Flat Steel Boning Pros

Flat steel boning, as pictured above on the right, takes the form of strong steel sheets, cut and rounded at the edges. These strips are durable but don't allow for much movement, bending only slightly in one direction.

The biggest pro of flat steel boning is its ability to really hold a strong support and form. The inflexibility is pretty unwavering, so it really has the strength to prop up and reshape the waist.

 Flat Steel Boning Cons 

Flat steel boning is not optimized for comfort and fit. The rigidness of the flat steel bones doesn't allow for any contouring of the body, a feature especially uncomfortable for anyone with curves.

The flat steel bones really hold their form, making most movements difficult and emulating the feeling of being caged.

Another flat steel boning con is the cost. Flat steel boning is heavier compared to its spiral steel boning counterpart, and therefore more pricey.

 

What Kind Of Corset Should I Buy?

With all of that being said, although it is the common perception that most corsets are filled with something that looks along the lines of flat steel boning, this is actually a misconception.

There are little to no entirely flat steel boned corsets on the market these days - most of them opting for either an entirely spiral steel boned structure or a combination of the two!

The entirely spiral steel boned corsets are the most comfortable option, perfect for anyone seeking durability with comfort for fashion as well as dancing, and performance.

The combination corset combines both worlds, holding the structure that the flat steel boning provides, but also incorporating the flexibility of the spiral steel bones.

These corsets will either have just the 4 flat bones in back, or they will have 4 flat steel bones in the back and in the front, giving the maximum amount of support, with the remainder being spiral steel bones.

In order to give you a little visual of how these may look, we've handpicked a couple of beautiful Atomic Jane corsets from our collection in order for you to get a better idea of each of these types of corset construction.

Burlesque Fashion Burlesque Corset

 

Having retaken center stage in recent years, Burlesque is back, and one of the hottest it's ever been! This can be attributed to a myriad of reasons, (a star performance by Lady Christina above being arguably one of them), but its association with female empowerment and body positivity are huge factors in the resurgence of this beautifully seductive art form!

Although Burlesque has always been at the forefront of our hearts and minds here at Atomic Jane, its incredible comeback has welcomed a huge new crowd of enthusiasts to the movement.

Some Cool Burlesque History Tidbits That You Should Know...

 Burlesque Fashion Burlesque Corset

Victorian Age Burlesque

Though most often associated with the strip tease, Burlesque actually began in the Victorian age in London as a performance art form based solely around parody and humor.

Just like the parodies we know and love today (think SNL), Burlesque took the most popular themes in culture and poked fun at them while making them flashier, louder, and unbelievably entertaining.

This concept was wildly cutting-edge at the time and didn’t take long to catch fire across the pond in none other than NYC in the mid-1800s! Burlesque pushed boundaries, dropped jaws, and shook societal norms by questioning the traditional role of women and empowering them to be the strong, independent, and sensual beings that they are! (Amazing, right?)

It wasn’t until the 20th Century that Burlesque really transformed into the comedy/performance art/strip tease form that it is today, allowing the audience to tap into fantasy and to escape into the mesmerizing world of Burlesque during every stunning performance.

Burlesque has had a huge place in culture throughout every decade of the 20th Century with a notable resurgence in the 1990s, often referred to as the "Neo-Burlesque" that continues to shake us today!

Steampunk Fashion: What Exactly Is It?

24 May, 2017 0 comments Leave a comment


Steampunk Fashion Steampunk Corset

 

As of now, I’m sure you have a picture in your mind of the general Steampunk aesthetic. You're probably picturing something along the lines of metal, goggles, top hats, and clocks, right? But what is this really all about?

“What exactly is Steampunk fashion?”

An imaginative and fantasy-driven combination of Victorian era fashion and elements and materials inspired by the Industrial Revolution, Steampunk fashion is in a league all its own.

Having been officially recognized in the late ‘80s, Steampunk is a fairly new concept and an even newer movement in the fashion world. Steampunk fashion is currently on the rise, and here at Atomic Jane, we have a spectacular collection of Steam corsets and skirts as well.

In order for you to better understand and fully appreciate all of the glory of Steampunk fashion, we thought we'd take the time to run you through some basics of the movement and give you a little preview of the incredible Steampunk corsets we have in our inventory. With a bit of the history and philosophy behind Steampunk in mind, these gorgeous pieces will become an even more meaningful addition to your closet!

 

Steampunk Fashion: A Brief History

Steampunk Fashion Steampunk Corset

In 1987, author KW Jeter first coined the term “Steampunk” in his novel Morlock Night. Although the concept of Steampunk had been popularized decades before this, thanks to various other Sci-fi novels, the birth of this label propelled Steampunk's rise into movies, video games, TV shows, and the fashion world!

Steampunk is often described as a fusion of the old and the new: the tradition of the Victorian age mixed with bold, retro technology. The juxtaposition of these elements creates a post-apocalyptic feel and a romantic allusion to drama and revolution.

These elements, when applied to fashion, create absolute magic, and it's no wonder to us that this fashion movement has not only gained a cult following but the attention of the mainstream fashion world as well!

Steampunk Fashion Steampunk Corset

"Saloncon," the first Steampunk fashion convention, took place in 2006 and allowed a collection of lively and passionate followers of the Steampunk movement to gather ansd connect with each other, showcasing their incredibly intricate (and often handmade) costumes including clothing, accessories, makeup, and hair.

Steampunk Fashion Steampunk Corset

John Galliano for Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2010

As the movement rapidly gained attention, it didn't take long for the high-fashion world to take notice. Shortly after the first Steampunk convention, the first Steampunk-inspired looks walked down some of the most high-profile runways, showcased by countless designers including Dior, Prada, Versace, and Chanel.

This Steampunk-heavy year in high-fashion created an amazing ripple effect for the movement and Steampunk-inspired clothing! Steampunk fashion was shortly, thereafter, on the radar of the mainstream fashion world and started to be introduced into mainstream retail.

It continues to be on the up-and-up and we're more than thrilled to be right there with the movement and carrying so many gorgeous Steampunk fashion inspired pieces!

 

Steampunk Fashion: The Corset

Although there are many different elements that go into Steampunk fashion, one of the most important elements is absolutely the Steampunk corset. Just as the corset is one of the biggest staples in Victorian era fashion, it's also one of the biggest staples in Steampunk fashion.

What makes these corsets so special and so indicative of Steampunk are the eye-catching, technology-inspired retro elements incorporated into the details. Everything from the lines to the materials to the added accessories pay tribute to both the femininity and tradition of the Victorian era and the toughness of the Industrial Revolution.

This aesthetic combination has the power to make you feel like the sexy, strong, and revolutionary woman that you truly are inside!

Is Waist Training Safe? Truth vs. Myth

Is Waist Training Safe? Truth vs. Myth

Waist training! It's been around for-ev-er but its seen a recent revival in popularity thanks to celebrities and influencers like Ms. Kim K, pictured above in this famous mirror selfie. Along with an increase in popularity, these celebrity endorsements have welcomed a flood of questions and concerns about the health and safety of waist training. Is waist training safe?

Although there's absolutely a wrong way to go about waist training that could have major implications on your health (we’ll get into the details of those later), there's also an absolutely safe and beneficial way to use waist training to improve your appearance as well as your physical well-being!

Because of all the noise and confusion associated with the safety of waist training, we thought we'd provide you with a one-stop shop to address all of your questions and concerns, and run through a couple of different waist training products we offer at Atomic Jane that may tickle your fancy. Happy reading, Atomic babes!


History

Is Waist Training Safe?

Waist training has been around for literally thousands of years with the sole purpose of reducing a woman's natural waist size. Although having roots as far back as 3,000 BC (woah), the most notable era of waist training popularity was the Victorian Era.

It was during this time that waist training was in it’s most widespread (and intense) form. There's no shortage of shocking images of women with waists so small you could probably fit your hand around them, most having fallen victim to the overwhelming social pressure to have increasingly smaller waistlines.

During this time it wasn't out of the ordinary for women to take extreme measures, putting their bodies and overall physical health at risk.

Fast forward to today, after periods of on and off popularity (very off in the ‘60s and ‘70s and semi-on in the ‘80s), the waist training movement has taken on a much different and modern form, gaining popularity through celebrity-sponsored social media posts.

A handful of celebrities have come out as waist training enthusiasts, and unlike the culture of our unfortunate predecessors, waist training today has a much more liberating purpose for women and their health!


Truth or Myth?

Myth…

"Waist training is dangerous in every context and something to be avoided if you’re not interested in having trouble breathing or having your organs permanently misplaced."


...Truth

Waist training is safe! And there's a correct and comfortable way to waist train. Although the previously mentioned, scary effects of waist training are an unfortunate reality if done incorrectly, there's an incredibly safe and beneficial way to waist train.

One of the biggest and most common mistakes made while waist training is waist training at an incorrect pace. Waist training takes time, and like anything that takes time, a certain amount of patience and consistency is required.

The danger in waist training comes when too much is done too fast, shocking the body and causing these physical health issues and discomfort.

A really good rule of thumb here is to listen to your body. Feeling super uncomfortable? Take it off! By working gradually with the rhythm of your body, you'll naturally be able to increase the time you have the waist trainer on and safely avoid discomfort.


Myth…

"Waist training is used for the sole purpose of making a woman’s waist smaller, making her more societally accepted because she fits a certain standard of beauty."


...Truth

No, no, no! Although this was the case way back in the day, waist training has evolved so much in its benefits and usage. Waist trainers are still known for their ability to slim the waist but in a very different context.

Waist training works wonders to improve self-love and self-confidence! It can be used to subtly reshape your stomach area and reduce love handles, a change that can make such a huge difference in the confidence of a woman and her ability to see herself as the beautiful creature that she is.

Waist training is often also used after pregnancy to get new mamas back to their bombshell shape and allow them to continue to feel like themselves after the body-changing experience of giving birth.

Waist training also works wonders to improve your posture. In the age of computers and cell phones, we spend so much of our time hunched over looking at our screens.

Waist training automatically corrects your posture, strengthening the muscles in your back and shoulders and leaving a lasting impact on your overall posture, even when the waist trainer comes off.

This can make a huge difference in a woman’s back health, breathing, and everything that comes along with having perfect posture!

Welcome to the first in a new series of Atomic Jane blog posts entitled “Personal Stylist”! Each post will feature a category of items from our website and we will be swooping in to save the day with a ton of tips and ideas about how and where to wear these pieces.

If you’ve browsed through our website before, you may have noticed that we have a plethora of amazing corset dresses available at the moment. Each design is so unique and beautiful, allowing there to be something for everyone throughout our selection.

Choosing a beautiful corset dress is one thing, but it can be a bit trickier to nail down those perfect accessories and the perfect place to wear this new addition to your closet. Our hope is that after reading this you will have a better idea of how to get the most out of your beautiful new purchase! Just click on any of the photos below and you will be taken to their individual purchase pages on our website. Happy reading Atomic babes!

 

ALL ABOUT CORSET DRESSES

A corset dress has all of the beautiful aesthetic benefits of a corset and more. It has the amazing ability to instantly make a woman feel more feminine, romantic, and sexy. We’ve broken down our corset dress inventory into four major categories in order to give you a rich overview of the options that you have to choose from. Let's go!

 

The Mini Corset Dress

This tantalizing variety of corset dress adds an irresistible sexuality to the ordinary mini dress. We all know what wonders the corset does for our shape and that structure added to an already adorable dress will take your look to the next level. This is the perfect option for the woman looking for the style and versatility of a mini dress but wanting to further enhance her shape and turn heads wherever she goes.

ATOMIC LUCKY IRISH LACE CORSET DRESS

The first adorable piece we want to share with you is our Atomic Lucky Irish Lace Corset Dress! This is one of our favorite mini corset dresses and with so many to-die-for details, you'll never want to leave home without it on. This gorgeous green color and the black lace overlay that carries through all the way down to the ruffled skirt come together to create a combination of sweet and sexy, perfect to wear to lunch with friends as well as a night out on the town. 

Dress it down with some simple daytime makeup, a cute black bag over your shoulder, and some simple black heels. Dress it all the way up with a smokey eye or a bold lip, some statement accessories (the bigger the better), and a sky-high pump. This corset dress comes in at only $59 and can be purchased in sizes S-2XL!

 

The Corset Dress Top

The corset dress top will leave you wondering why you ever wore a regular top in the first place. With all of the same beautiful features as the corset and the corset dress, a corset dress top can add a stunning sexiness to your more casual outfits, allowing you to be the vixen that you are in every situation, no matter the occasion.

TOP DRAWER PREMIUM RED GLITTER STEEL BONED CORSET DRESS

Featured above is our super sweet Top Drawer Premium Red Glitter Steel Boned Corset Dress! Try not to fall in love with this one, just try. The combination of this flirty color and its glitter overlay is so sexy and fun that it will turn every outfit into your favorite outfit.

Like the mini corset dress, the corset dress top can be easily dressed up or down and become the perfect piece for any occasion, whether it be hitting the mall with your girls or going on a dinner date with that special someone.

Dress it down with some booty hugging skinny jeans, a simple heel, and light makeup. Dress it up with some booty hugging black pants, a bold heel and lips, a statement necklace and some long lashes. This beauty comes in at $155, is available in sizes S-2XL, and psst....it also comes in green!

 

The Statement Corset Dress

There is no chance that you won’t be the focus of all of the eyes in the room with a bold, statement corset dress. They come in all shapes and forms with one thing in common - you will be noticed. The details, bold materials, prints and various styles of these intricate corset dresses will leave everyone around you with their jaws dropped.

ATOMIC STEAMPUNK GOTHIC BROWN CORSET SKIRT

This dress kind of speaks for itself because Oh. My. God. How beautiful is this? This is our Steampunk Corset & Skirt Set, a corset dress that will undoubtedly make you the center of attention in any scenario.

This beautiful ensemble is comprised of four different pieces: the Steampunk brown brocade overbust corset, romantic skirt, cummerbund, and silver chain. It almost takes a moment to process all of the beautiful and intricate details of this wearable art.

This dress has the power to rule your nightlife once you get a hold of it and can be even more "Steampunked" up with additional themed accessories (think gloves and a headdress) or can be kept elegant and classic with simple heels, dark red lips, a chic top bun, and some beautiful statement earrings.

This dress is an absolute steal at only $89 and comes in sizes S-2XL. Please reference the sizing chart we have provided for you on the purchase page in order to ensure that you take home the dress of your dreams!

 

ATOMIC TWO PIECE RED AND BLACK CORSET AND SKIRT

We couldn't choose just one statement corset dress so here is another stunner for you to feast your eyes on! Our Atomic Two Piece Red and Black Corset and Skirt is Victorian-inspired with it's red satin corset and it's Hi-Lo black ruffled skirt topped with an elegant floral lace overlay.

This dress is such an amazing pairing of romance and sex appeal and can be worn dramatically or simply, depending on the event or your mood. For a super bold look, we recommend trying out a beautiful matching headpiece, some lace gloves, and a bright red lip.

For a more elegant and classic twist, we would take the accessories down a notch, choosing subtle and elegant jewelry, a simple heel, and some sexy, long lashes to complete the look. Pick this up on our website for only $89, available in sizes S-2XL! Once again, please take a look at our provided sizing chart on the purchase page so we can get you into a perfect fitting statement corset dress!

 

Corset Dresses For The Bedroom

Although all corsets and corset dresses have a fair place in the bedroom and elsewhere, these types of corset dresses have a particular sex appeal that makes them especially great candidates for your bedroom escapades. Think "Lingerie 2.0". Corset dress style lingerie pulls out all the stops and has the power to stop anyone dead in their tracks.

ATOMIC BLACK SATIN RUFFLE TRIM CORSET WITH PANTY SET

We have a variety of sexy corset dress lingerie on our website but one of our sexiest has to be our Atomic Black Ruffle Trim Corset with Panty Set. Make them sweat with this too-hot-for-words, off the shoulder satin corset design and lace ruffle panties for only $79.

This kind of piece doesn't need anything (except for your stunning self) but if you want to turn up the sexiness yet another notch, pair your lingerie with an elegant bun, subtle jewelry, and sultry lips. This stunner comes in sizes S-2XL and will leave every woman feeling like the sultriest, sexiest version of themselves.

 

WHAT'S NEXT?

Now that you have gathered a bit more knowledge about some different types of corset dresses and how to style them, it's time to drop jaws with one of these looks. 

Although the right hair, makeup, and accessories have the ability to take your corset dress to the next level, there is something to be said about the importance of (things will get a little bit cheesy here, bare with me) confidence.

You'll look so beautiful in this silhouette no matter the style, and accepting and being proud of how much of a knockout you are will leave you with the glow necessary to complete any outfit that you choose. You are breathtaking!

These are just the highlights of our awesome selection at Atomic Jane, so for more gorgeous corset dresses and accessories head over to atomicjaneclothing.com and check out everything that we have to offer!

Keep reading this sexy plus size corset guide and you will be ready to purchase the corset of your dreams in no time.

 

WHAT ARE CORSETS/PLUS SIZE CORSETS ALL ABOUT?

 

Guide To Corsets 

Forget the outdated, Victorian notion of the corset - a “torture chamber” of discomfort used to make women feel like they need to fit a certain size in order for society to accept them. Fast forward to today and see that corsets have a much different function and purpose, centered around making a woman feel as beautiful as she can possibly feel - no matter what size.

Corsets are all about accentuating those beautiful curves that you already have, that hourglass figure that makes women the tantalizing vixens that they are. The majority of corsets today fall under two categories - shaping corsets and fashion corsets. Corsets allow you to shape your body as well as express your fashion sense, sexuality and interests in stunning fabrics, patterns and themed costumes. The end result of whichever category these corsets and plus size corsets fall into is always a more stunning, confident and beautiful you.

 

WHERE CAN I GET A PLUS SIZE CORSET?

 

We have wrangled together this stunning selection of plus size corsets that have just arrived in our inventory (we are very excited about them!). Every single woman should have the chance to look this beautiful, so every corset listed comes in S-XL as well as 2X-6X. Click on any of these gorgeous Atomic Jane pieces and you will be linked to the purchase page where you can seal the deal on this new and exciting addition to your closet! The sex appeal of these pieces is through the roof so you better get ready to be the center of attention in any of these show-stopping, sexy plus size corsets.

Not only is it sexy but high quality as well, made with premium polyester silk. The black zipper runs directly down the middle of the front of the bodice, creating the tempting illusion that you could unzip at any moment. Other features of this sexy plus size corset include its thick cording in back for cinching as well as the removable garters. Thought it couldn’t get any better? This style also comes in black, green and white, sure to fit any mood you might be in. All four of these colors come in at only $75, a corset lover’s dream!


LAVISH PLUS SIZE PREMIUM LACE FRONT ZIPPER CORSET

Sexy Plus Size Corset

 

With all of the same sexy features as the front zipper corsets mentioned before, this one takes it a sexy step further with the inclusion of lace. There is nothing quite as sexy as a lace undergarment, can we all agree on that? We have featured this plus size corset here in tan, a beautiful contrast to the black lace, zipper, and cording. This lace pattern adds an extra seductive punch and can also be purchased in blue, purple, green, red and pink. There is no way you won’t fall in love with one of these stunning colors so get ready to live your fantasy for only $95!

This full-glitter, full-bust, plus size corset will make your tatas look amazing and have you breaking hearts left and right. In addition to this beautiful glitter fabric, the pattern of the ribbing creates a mouth-watering shape, accentuating and showcasing all the right parts of your body. Take this baby home for $95 and wonder how you ever lived life without it.


WHAT SIZE AM I?

Corset Sizing Chart


Now that you have chosen the perfect corset to fit your taste, it's time to choose the perfect corset to fit your curves. It is so important to maximize the accuracy of fit here as a perfect fitting corset will leave you feeling confident, comfortable and sexy, the way it is meant to be.

We’ve provided you with a “cheat sheet” sizing guide in order to ensure that you make the right purchase. It is super important to keep in mind that the measurements provided here are the measurements of the corset all tightened and ready to go, so think final result measurements. For traditional corsets, we recommend measuring the bust, waist, and hips of your natural body and then adjusting from there, depending on how loose or tight you’d like your corset to fit. For corsets that are over the bust (like all of the corsets featured here), we recommend the easy solution of sizing for your bust. Your corset will not be comfortable if the girls don’t fit so fit your corset to them and the rest will be able to be adjusted nicely into place.

So there you have it, gorgeous! We hope that this has been helpful to steer you in the right direction and we wish you the best of luck in your shopping experience. Again, all of the images above have been linked to their purchase pages on our website but you can also find them, along all of our other sexy corsets, lingerie and more on www.atomicjaneclothing.com.

10 Victorian Fashion Corsets for Everyday

15 April, 2016 1 comment Leave a comment

Victorian Fashion Corsets for Everyday

What do you know about the Victorian era? Did you know that corsets were a large part of the trend in this period? Read on and learn about the ten Victorian fashion corsets for every day, among many other topics and fine details of the Victorian era!

Victorian Fashion

The Victorian style changed the world. In the early 1900's, new machinery, as well as new clothing materials, were developed. Trim and lace were now able to be placed on all dresses, corsets, and the like. Lavishness was in for half the cost. Not only was lace made both fast and furious by sewing machines, but dyes were developed that lasted and were inexpensive and stylish.

A good example of a corset that would have been produced back in the 1900's is the Atomic Victorian Tapestry Overbust Corset. This corset is pure vintage fashion. Check out the detail on this brightly dyed olive green overbust corset. The yellow satin ribbon trim along the bottom is vintage to match the mild floral tapestry design. As a bonus, the back laces up with matching yellow satin ribbon for tight lacing and closure. The front includes a steel busk seal. But wait, there's more! This specific corset also comes with a matching G-string; you sure didn't get those in the original Victorian era!

Victorian Jewelry

Just like the Victorian fashion, Victorian jewelry changed near the 1900's allowing accessibility of the jewelry to all, rather than just aristocrats and Queens. Jewelry specifically from the Romantic Period showed confidence, love, and allure. A piece of jewelry from the Romantic Period, specifically a royal blue and diamond necklace perhaps, would pair quite nicely with the Atomic Victorian Inspired Purple Overbust Corset.

This overbust corset is a real looker. Its long length sits at the lower hips allowing for the look of a long torso and corset training. The bodice is elegant with a hook and eye closure in the front and in good vintage fashion, a matching blue satin ribbon that has tight lacing up the back. This overbust corset is 30% cotton and 40% spandex. You will be the talk of the evening in this everyday but elegant outfit.

Victorian Hair

Just like both fashion and jewelry, Victorian hairstyles were considered an imperative part of a women's appearance. A woman's hair was usually worn up, embellished with feathers, jewels, or other Victorian fashion items. Her hair would be curled with tendrils framing her face. A perfect matching corset for this type of Victorian hairstyle would be the Atomic Beige Victorian Inspired Brocade Overbust Corset.

 

The femininity of this cream colored corset just oozes innocence. The contrast between the white floral lace trim and black busk front closure gives it a feeling of virgin promiscuity. This would be perfect wedding lingerie for that woman with the innocent look and not so innocent actions!

Victorian Literature

Victorian literature involves a variety of works written from 1837-1901. The majority of the writing focuses on the struggles of the working class, and especially any victory or achievement gained. Some of the work included in that timeframe are Bronte's "Jane Eyre" & "Wuthering Heights". Just imagine reading one of those classic books while wearing the Atomic After Five Ruffles and Lace Overbust Corset.

This light copper colored overbust corset would put your typical librarian to shame. With its white and yellow ruffle trim on both the top and bottom edge, as well as the white lace adornment over the bust area that is carried around to the back, who wouldn't want to be caught reading in the library?! This corset also includes a front busk closure and tight lacing up the back in a beautiful and brilliant bright white satin ribbon. This specific corset could also be used in Victorian Steampunk fashions with the right accessories added as it has that light copper colored bodice that is classic to the steampunk look.

Victorian Hats

Hats were worn by women in the Victorian period from the 1830's to the 1900's. Hats made the fashion back in the day and were a must-have accessory to a women's dress or corset. Bonnets were adorned with flowers, feathers, jewels, and ribbons. If you are having a difficult time visualizing the type of hats from the period, think Downton Abbey! 

Any of the Atomic corsets could be worn with a bonnet, but the Atomic Victorian Tapestry Overbust Corset and the Atomic Beige Victorian Inspired Brocade Overbust Corset would pair the best with the hats of the Victorian era.

Victorian Shoes

Footwear in the Victorian period had a simple but classic look. Usually, boots were worn under dresses or skirts and were mid-calf in height. With a line of black buttons, a stiletto heel, and other adornments, Victorian era shoes were badass!

The Atomic Nora-Blu Pinstripe Bustier Corset would be the perfect fit for the boots mentioned above. The formal pinstripes yet flirty black ruffle, send mixed signals to your admirer. Add in rhinestone buckle accents, adjustable over-the-shoulder straps, and a matching thong and you have a night you'll never forget!

Victorian Architecture

The Victorian style of architecture is from the period of 1830-1910. It was a highly influential style with elaborate trim and beautiful colors. The Victorian era wanted architecture, furnishings, and fashion to have an air of beauty over practicality. The type of corset most reminiscent of Victorian architecture is the Atomic Vintage Blue & Gold Brocade Underbust corset.

This Victorian inspired underbust corset has a brocade fabric in the royal colors of gold and navy blue. Not only does it have a front busk closure, but it also has durable tight lacing in the back and comes with a matching G-string. How daring! This corset can be worn with or without a tank top as it is an underbust corset, again, how daring!

Victorian Cosmetics

Women of the Victorian era indeed wore make-up. Women in this period used rice powder, zinc oxide, or pearl powder as a foundation. As a lipstick, they would use a clear beeswax for protection against the sun and wind as well as for a light shine. For color on their lips, they would use finely ground flowers. For blush on the cheeks, they would apply beet juice massaged into the cheeks. A corset that would fit this style of cosmetics today would be the Atomic Victorian Black Satin Overbust Long Bone Corset.

This black corset oozes class and elegance and would match any make-up style perfectly. This satin polyester fabric corset can be worn with either a pair of jeans or a skirt. It has a front stainless steel busk closure and a ten grommet lace up back with black ribbon lacing. As an added bonus, this corset comes with a matching G-string.

Victorian Décor

Victorian décor mainly consisted of where you lived. If you were a resident of the countryside, your focus was more of a garden variety. Those who lived in a city enjoyed more elite decorations including items that were inspired by balls, theaters, and parties. Any of the Atomic corsets could be worn in the style of the Victorian residence that influences you.

Victorian Art

Victorian art changed the way the world saw art. Instead of idealizing the events that were painted, usually military and noble figures, they changed the way they painted art to reflect accuracy and reality, rather than nobility. They wanted their audience to learn a moral lesson and felt it was the job of the artist to depict this lesson.

Any of the Atomic corsets could be worn during this Victorian art period, but the Atomic After Five Ruffles and Lace Overbust Corset and Atomic Beige Victorian Inspired Brocade Overbust Corset would pair the best with the art of the Victorian era.

There you have it! All you ever wanted to know regarding the Victorian era. Now that you are aware of the ten Victorian fashion corsets for daily wear, make sure you sport your Victorian style corset from Atomic Jane! As always contact us support@atomicjaneclothing.com to get any of your questions answered. 

8 Corsets for Looking Gorgeous and Feeling Sexy

31 March, 2016 0 comments Leave a comment

This post is for all of our Gorgeous Atomic Diva's out there. 

I know what you want. You want to leave your house looking gorgeous and feeling sexy. You want the curves of Marilyn Monroe and Betty Davis eyes. Do you know the kind of woman I'm talking about?

The kind of woman that commands a room when she steps in. A woman that makes that tall, dark, and handsome stranger thank God he's a man. Well girl, I have got just the corsets in mind to make it happen for you. 

Get ready to fall in love with your new favorite outfit - because today's post has some of our best head-turning pieces. 

Gothic Fashion & Victorian Fashion

We are starting our list off strong, with a delicate and unique Gothic corset. This overbust corset is delicate, romantic, and feminine. Envision yourself as the ultimate Gothic princess while wearing this one with your favorite jeans, black skinnies, or pencil skirt. 

The satin pleats, the bows, the lace - it's almost too perfect.  Puffy cap sleeves finish the look off, making this piece a touch Victorian fashion, too. The back laces up beautifully with a ribbon and zipper closure. 

Tim Burton Character Style Corset

Can you say, sizzle? OMG this corset is so sexy. That isn't even the best part. It's versatile. It's a goth corset. It's a Victorian corset. 

It's easy to picture this corset featured on one of Tim Burton's leading ladies. His favorite muse, the lovely Miss Helena Bonham Carter would totally rock this bad boy on the Red Carpet. You can take a peek at some of her corset love over at this post

The jacquard print fabric offers compliment to the antique front buttons. The back laces up with heavy cord lacing  and it comes with steel bones.  You know what that means? This Gothic corset is available for tight lacing.

You might feel this one is a bit too risky for the office, so throw on a blazer or a cardigan over it to downplay the sexiness. Accessorize to your hearts delight with this piece, ladies. The monochromatic nature of the overbust corset makes this the perfect piece for busting out that statement necklace you have been looking for an excuse to wear. 

White Overbust Corset 

Our last two feature corset's took a walk on the dark side. Here's one that brightens things up a bit. 

The wide shoulder straps will give you a bit of extra support. This is huge for ladies who are afraid to go strapless because of a larger bust area. The delicate ribbon lace-up front and back makes this piece a classic corset top. 

The old saying, that black makes you appear slimmer is false. I know. We've been lied to. The truth is a well fitting piece of clothing, like this corset top will make you appear much more slender than any ill fitting or not nearly as sexy dark colored outfit ever will. Keep that in mind while admiring this beauty. 

 

Underbust Corsets 

Underbust corsets can be worn over or under clothes. These next few we will be talking about wearing over clothing to create a new look to an old favorite. The tank top.

We've all got them. Under our favorite shirt or by layered by themselves worn with jeans; the tank is an essential. Now, what if I were to tell you this staple piece of clothing could go from laid back to sexy in the time it took to fasten a few hooks and tie some ribbon?Sounds pretty good, right?

Take this Black And White Stripe Halter Underbust Corset. This can be worn over anything. A T. A blouse. What the model shows- over a tank, is the perfect fast outfit change. She went from low key to; OMG, like, whoa!  The halter gives you support and ensures this baby isn't going anywhere. 

The SteamPunk Underbust Corset

Remember when I said you "could" wear an underbust, under your clothes? This piece is a great example that you would not want to do that with. The fantastic buckles and chain accent would snag against your outer layer and even worse; they would be hidden!

Don't make the corset sad like that. Instead let your inner SteamPunk princess out with this SteamPunk Corset. 

Because this corset is steel boned, go ahead and cinch your waist to your hearts delight. The double zipper front closure and faux leather panels will help keep your tummy area nice and smooth while you flaunt that teeny-tiny waist. It's a win-win. 

Honestly, go crazy with the creativity of this underbust corset. Pair with jeans for a western SteamPunk feel. Go with a flowy skirt for a victorian fashion Steampunk look. 

Waist Trainers 

Hollywood is obsessed with waist trainers. Heck, I'm obsessed with waist trainers. They are a bit different than the underbust corsets we talked about above. Let us examine. 

You know Kim Kardashian's waist trainer? The one she uses over her clothes at the gym and under her clothes pretty much everywhere else? Ok. Well that type of trainer is the style below. In fact, if you check her pics, this one matches hers to a T. (Or a "K")

This is a latex waist trainer. It has steel bones and fastens in the front. It's also referred to as a vest waist trainer because of the underbust style. 

If you are looking to lose weight, train your waist, or melt off those extra inches while you workout like Kim K does, this is your new BFF.

 

Foundation Waist Trainer

At the beginning of this post I told you I had chosen corsets to help you look good and feel sexy. With a piece like this underbust waist trainer, you can achieve a smaller appearing waist under any outfit you already own. 

It can be a huge boost to your confidence to have a foundational piece like this underbust corset in your closet. Any dress or shirt can be layered on top and by the very nature of the corset - you will not be able to detect you are wearing it underneath. 

This black underbust corset features steel bones and 3 levels of adjusments via the front eyehooks. This means the corsets can grow smaller (or bigger, after that extra piece of pie) with you. 

The LongLine Waist Training Corset 

Whenever I see this lovely long line waist training corset, I am immediately transported to Kate Winset's character of Rose in Titanic. I adore the Victorian fashion influence this simple and elegant piece presents. 

This piece can literally perform, any of the functions previously mentioned in the post to this point. You may choose to wear this piece as a corset top. It can be worn over pants with the bottom tucked in, or over a skirt with the bottom over the top - and create a gorgeous silhouette.

This steel boned corset is also a waist trainer. It has 26 spiral steel bones that draw the waist in, allow for tight lacing and keep the tummy flat.  If using for waist training it should be worn under your outfit. Although, you may choose to wear a light T or camisole underneath for comfort. 

 

Spring Festival Wear

We got through all those fabulous corsets! Did you choose your favorite?

Now, because spring is just around the corner - peeking her head out slowly, as a bonus - I choose a few pieces to help you out with your first festival of the year. 

 

 

First up, the Bell Raiser Paisley Print Red Dress. It's long sleeves are bell shaped. So hippy - so Coachella. Don't forget to peep the crochet at the bottoms. Best worn while swaying on the grass and laughing with friends.

If you think you might be in for a long day of walking - opt for this flowing fringe tank. Great length for extra coverage and loose enough to be layered for a different look. Bangles and flower crown accessories encouraged. 

We hope you already know how beautiful and sexy of a woman you are. Having the extra help of a killer outfit and the waist cinching a corset has to offer can only add icing to the cake.
