FERRIS Corset, ca. 1896

antique FERRIS Corset 1895 1 antique FERRIS Corset 1895

American corset of the brand Ferris Good Sense, ca. 1896. Model number: 220.

In the late Victorian and Edwardian era, some women preferred to wear a health corset. Health corsets had a button closure at the center front instead of the typical steel corset busk, had shoulder straps and were made of white or blue jean (a strong, durable twill-weave cotton fabric similar to denim fabric). They also were either unboned and stiffened with cord, or just lightly boned – and some even had elastic insets at the front and sides! In the Edwardian era, health corsets were usually called “corset waists”, “athletic corsets”, “hygienic waists” and “sanitary corsets”. Health corsets were worn for sport but also by pregnant women and young mothers.

This Ferris corset is one such health corset. Good condition with some stains and foxing. This is reflected in the price. The decoration is not included.
