Plastic whale bone 7mm wide

Product Code: 91-8140-07

Plastic whale bone is a white bone, sometimes called "Synthetic whalebone", it's made of polyoxymethylen or 100% plastic. It can be cut with scissors but not sewn through. An option for light weight corsets.

Consider purchasing a meter of each plastic boning we sell so you have a sample on hand to test in your project before ordering what you need. Some customer only buy this, and some will only by the German Plastic bones...it's all a matter of personal preference.
This is the most popular size of this type of bone. For more size options, scroll down.

Need bone casing tape to go with this...check out the options below.

All items arrived as ordered. And they arrived very quickly! I will definitely be ordering all future corset supplies with Farthingales. Nice to have a Canadian vendor too!

5 of 5 Versatile, dependable boning October 26, 2017
Reviewer: Patricia Preston from Annapolis Royal, NS Canada  
This is a boning that provides moderately firm, yet slightly flexible support, and very nicely mimics the "feel" of 19th/early 20th century whalebone.  I find it also works beautifully for fairly rigid shaping when spaced closely in 18th century stays.  For a corset intended for tight-lacing, German plastic (or steel) is my preference, but plastic whalebone is perfect for a corset that will get normal wear and tear.  I also find it ideal for boning Edwardian underbodices, as it has the same sort of strength and flexibility as antique steel or whalebone.  As a bonus, it's lighter weight than steel, can be rounded with scissors, and is completely washable.  I've used it in many corsets -- excellent product at a reasonable price!

5 of 5 Fantastic December 21, 2015
Reviewer: Aedan Chaney-Drinard from Portland, OR United States  
I really love the quality of this artificial whalebone; I haven't sewn my corset with them yet so I can't attest to their holding up in-action, (however a test was done in an article on FoundationsRevealed.com which compared this same product, bought from this website, with spiral steel boning, and this reigned superior--which is why I bought it)
My one criticism is that it would've been nice to have my package tracked, because after I ordered it I had virtually no idea when to expect it. But otherwise brava! For those reading this and wondering, it's thin enough to be cut and rounded with scissors, but thick enough [from what I've read] to be used in tightlacing corsets. The one I'm sewing now has a waist reduction of five inches off a beginning waist circumference of 26", will let you all know how it goes!

Thank you for sharing your opinion. Just so you know....
Tracking is only available for certain methods of shipping and does increase the shipping cost. Small Packet Air is the most cost effective but does not include tracking.
