Symington Corset Pattern 1896-1915
Symington Corset Patterns:

The Symington collection was created by the Market Harborough company R. & W. H. Symington, which began to make corsets for fashionable Victorian ladies in the 1850s. The company eventually grew into an international concern and one of its most famous products, the Liberty Bodice, was produced for almost seventy years.

The Symington garment collection is held at the Collections Resources Centre, Barrow-on-Soar

Visit Collections Resource Centre

More corset patterns can be viewed in the Symington catalogues held at the Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland.

All of the patterns are scanned directly from the original Symington pattern books and sizes do vary. As a guide most waist sizes are between 22" and 24".

NB: If ordering a print, select the A2 paper size option. This will allow the pattern to be printed to scale.
