Vera is our dramatic homage to Sophia Loren’s golden era. The ultimate in luxury corsetry, it is crafted in decadent, heavyweight ivory floral French Leavers lace, with heavily boned seams and an inner waist elastic for that desirous hourglass effect. The corset features very sheer tulle sides, allowing for seductive glimpses of skin, and gold eyelets at the rear with traditional corset-style lacing in soft ivory satin ribbon, while the front has a traditional gold hook-and-eye busk with lace detailing at either side. The padded, wired cups are lined with nude georgette, so this can be worn as outerwear while still keeping your modesty. The shoulder straps and suspender straps are both detachable, while a flattering skirted-style scallop trim sits at the hem. Team it with a brief from the Love or Donna ranges, and layer it beneath the pearl-trimmed, floor-sweeping Francis gown for a truly stunning effect. The Vera corset can also be paired with our matching lace eye mask.
