White Spring Steel Bones and Spiral Bones
Farthingales in Stratford is famous for their high quality bones for corsets. The white steel boning, a.k.a. spring steel, flexes only forward and backward, not side to side, and are appropriate for the center backs of corsets where support is needed on either side of the grommets. Spiral steel bones flex in every direction and are ideal for dance and theatrical costumes where a full range of motion is required. Be sure to read the descriptions of each to determine which bone is the best for your purposes. Hand wash or dry clean, never machine wash.
