Bone casing - Directory of Corset Making Components

You need corset bone casing to house your corset boning.  Tape is available in many widths for many different types of project.  It should ideally be 100% cotton, and with a twill weave for strength.  

When you sew bone tape you should make sure your bones have a snug fit in the tape.  This means that your boning channel should be 2mm wider than your bone.

If you don't have a snug fit, the corset bones may well twist during wear causing pain and discomfort.

Here is a video on different types of corset boning tape.  The same rules apply to all bodices whether in corsetry or not.
