Boning (Corset Boning)


What is Corset Boning?

The boning in a corset is what makes a corset a corset, giving it structure, so that it shapes the wearer's body to the desired look. This boning is usually made up of a rigid piece of steel, nylon, or plastic that is inserted vertically into the special seams inside a corset (these vertical seams are specifically made to encase the boning).

Typically, there are at least two pieces of boning in a corset, one on either side of the navel; but more often, there will be at least four lines of boning, with some corsets (especially a more traditional corset) containing boning along the back, as well as the torso.
