Product description

Product description

This sturdy plastic boning is thicker than regular plastic boning – 1.5 mm (about 0.06") compared to 1 mm (about 0.04") – but is still quite light weight. It’s the closest thing to real whalebone, making it perfect for historical corset designs.

In a classic corset of sturdy material, plastic boning delivers firm support. Combine it with steel boning for a lighter weight corset or to provide various levels of support in different areas (plastic boning at the sides can emphasize the waistline while reducing stress on the ribcage). Or use it exclusively throughout the corset. It also works in crinolines.

Cut plastic boning with ordinary scissors, rounding the edges as you go or smoothing them with an emery board. No further finishing is necessary.

To best compare various types and widths of boning, order our boning sampler.

Sold in lengths of 10 meters. This boning is 6 mm wide.
