Corset Busk

If like me, you've read the term Corset Busk in one of our listings or elsewhere on the internet and thought "Look at that spelling mistake", you'd have been mistaken.

A corset busk consists of two long pieces of steel, one with steel knobs and the other one steel loops/eyes that were bought into use in the mid 1800s.

Straight busks are most common and are white with a plastic looking nylon coating.

Wide busks are also straight but are 2" wide and less flexible.

Spoon busks come in two lengths only and are made of stainless steel and not nylon coated. These busks are very rigid.
