Corset Busks

A busk is the front closure of a corset. Busks come in various lengths, shapes and colours so you can co-ordinate then with your fashion fabric, corset style and body type.

Farthingales strives to provide only the highest quality steel busks, and our goal is to be your go-to corset busk supplier! Please note: busks should be flexible in order to follow the curves over the bust line. Wide busks are not flexible enough to do this - though they will give incredible support. If when using a regular busk you feel you need more support - add a bone, either beside the busk or in the space behind it. If the busk is not quite as long as you would like - slide longer bones behind it.

Consider adding our book on Corset Front Closures to your cart. It explains a few methods on how to put a busk into a corset. Or view our YouTube video on How to put a Busk into a corset...the most basic method. We also have a class on the Craftsy platform Corset Making: Busks and Bone Casings
