Couture Corsetry Techniques: Flossing

Here at Dark Garden, we are all about the details. As well as our exquisitely pattern matched brocades and hand-pieced lace appliqué, we also offer corset flossing. Flossing is a traditional corset technique which combines form and function into beautiful embroidery which can actually prolong the life of your corset. This versatile design accent can be applied to virtually any corset, whether it be a pretty bridal piece or seductive vamp style.

Historically, flossing served to anchor the ends of corset boning within their channels. By reducing chafing against the fabric, the risk of a bone popping through is diminished. Naturally, this gave rise to quite an array of beautiful designs! As well as this functional style of flossing, we are also offering a curated selection of decorative embroidery options, including moss stitching and lovely sprigs of wheat sheafs.

Dark Garden's corset flossing was developed with the fabulous embroidery expert Diana LaFerry. Bone casing flossing is available in 10 motifs, as well as the decorative styles mentioned above. From classic Satin Wings and Double Fan to bold styles like Double Hex and Black Widow, each bone casing motif is designed for our signature paired bones on each seam. All styles of flossing are available in 11 different thread colors.

Flossing begins at $66 per corset plus $30-$75 for each placement, and can be added to your existing Dark Garden corset, a new stock corset, or a new order. We recommend a starting budget of at least $150 for the addition of simple flossing – but why stop there? Consider the luxury of $1000 worth of hand embroidered flossing. Either way, it's an excellent way to add unique texture and a pop of color to a simple and classic corset design. We particularly love it on bridal style corsets. Let it transform a traditional ivory corset with a uniquely elegant style, lending that heirloom feeling.
