Maradonna Corset

The Maradonna corset is our introductory piece in lingerie-based corsetry. The leotard body and elasticated Power mesh panelling create a timeless look that won't go unnoticed. Featuring spaghetti straps, cone-cups, internal & external boning channels and stitch detailing, you can embellish the design with heavily textured material (on the front and back panels), or you can team it with a thin belt for added style. Our sample has been constructed using a classic black satin and matching powermesh.

CREATIVE TIPS

When it comes to iconic corset design, no other garment comes to mind! The Maradonna is a uniquely constructed piece, featuring design details that simply cannot be found on any of our other historic or modern corsets. The combination of elastane and powermesh side panels takes this piece from couture to lingerie, and so it may be in need of a little more technical skill to create than its counterparts. We do not recommend the Maradonna pattern to sewers with little to no corsetry experience, as the amount of design detail featured on this piece really does require the eye of a highly skilled intermediate to pro sewer.

This doesn't mean that this pattern is the hardest to construct in our collection, but it is certainly a challenge for those who wish to own such an iconic garment. The finished piece will be in need of adjustment and amendment to fit exact body shapes, but we still firmly believe that this corset, and the potential it holds, makes it a worthwhile project to undertake.
