Busks, for those of you who have not heard the term, are metal clasps that close the centre front of a corset. Opening busks did not come into use until the mid 1800ís. A corset busk consists of two long pieces of steel, one with steel knobs and the other one steel loops/eyes. The busk pieces are sewn into the corset on either side of the centre front, lacing is still used in the back or sides but the busk allows getting into and out of the corset by oneself.

Corset busks come in three styles and several lengths. Straight busks are most common and are white with a plastic looking nylon coating. Wide busks are also straight but are 2" wide and less flexible. Spoon busks come in two lengths only and are made of stainless steel and not nylon coated. They are not very flexible and I have heard that some spoon busks are not suitable for "tight lacing", this may be due to the lack of flexibility. To avoid problems I do not recommend these for any "tight lacing". In fact we do not recommend any of our "busks" for this purpose as they were not designed for it. This does not mean they will not work, just that we do not guarantee them for this use. Several customers do use them for this purpose and have had no problems.
