Want a smaller, sexy, nipped in waist? Eternal Spirits knows that there aren’t many women who don’t, and the proof is in the popularity of the brand’s corsets.
Eternal Spirits corsets are made in Nottingham, England, using steel boning and wires, as well as authentic Victorian techniques. Having dressed celebrities like Dita von Teese, Girls Aloud, Leona Lewis and Britney Spears, the brand claims to reduce waist size between 2 and 4 inches. But the best part about fashionable and sexy corsets like those made by Eternal Spirits is that they can be worn as a foundation garments, seductive lingerie or even as outerwear.
The label’s newest collection is the fashionable Understated, which features designs inspired by famous American cities.
Understated L.A. includes four looks: Burlesque, made of digitally printed silk; the hot pink and black Bettie; front-laced undercorset Mia; and Grace, a leather undercorset.
Understated Las Vegas is all about over-the-top glamour and designs (including halter Anya with its plunging neckline and feather-trimmed Victoriana) meant to be worn as stylish outerwear.
The Understated New York designs are a bit more severe, and also deadly chic, including the menswear-inspired, black-and-white Greta (so on trend for Fall 2011), and pinstriped Delilah with its square cut-out detailing.
Designs in deep blue and white make up the Understated San Francisco designs, which include decorative front lace-ups, bows and pockets. On closer inspection we think the name of the collection might be something of a misnomer as these corsets are anything but understated.
Susi Henson, the founder of Eternal Spirits, promises a balance of “originality and quality with the power of femininity and seduction…[as well as] corset and lingerie collections that are seductive and chic, serious and playful, classic and sexy.” Indeed, Eternal Spirit corsets have an air of haute couture about them. In addition to its famed corsets the line also produces underwear (check out their naughty ruffled Burlesque knickers) and loungewear including camisoles, nighties and robes. New Bridal and Evening Wear lines are coming soon.
