Corsets are expensive because of what it takes to construct the garment; it's an intricate process. I have never seen a corset under $40 and those really aren't worth wearing as the "boning" doesn't hold up so well. I've seen corsets run into the low thousands.

Honestly the ones under $100 are reasonably priced. The ones from Coquette for the most part are all worth the money you'd pay for them.

Corsets that are handmade with spiral steal boning are expensive because they are labor intensive. And well worth it.

I'm so glad that you posted about this! I've been dying to get one, but wasn't sure what the deal was with the expensive. Sounds like it's a good idea to look into getting a little bit of a higher priced one so that it's of good quality!

It would cost me $60 to make a cheap cotton duck/twill corset - no pretty fabrics, just the basics.

You're at at least $300 for the labour of a skilled professional.


So, yeah, $100 even for a mass-produced corset that's decent enough to not fall apart is a pretty good deal.

I have 3 nice handmade leather corsets that were only about $200 dollars apiece

I have tried the "cheap" ones offered here. They pale in comparison to the more expensive ones. You get what you pay for!

I've gotten some cheap corsets over the years, but they really don't hold up nearly as well as those in the $150+ range.
