Baroque & Bones: Madame Sher ‘Beautiful Darlings’ Corsets


‘Elizabeth Taylor’

I’ve been an admirer of Madame Sher’s work for awhile. While corsetry aficionados have no doubt heard the name Madame Sher, her location (Brazil) hasn’t made her as well-known as some of her fellow corsetieres in the US, France, or England. This post was originally going to feature a few of my favorite Madame Sher corsets, but then I discovered the Beautiful Darlings collection, and decided to dedicate this article to them. Beautiful Darlings is Madame Sher’s couture line of corsetry, and it honors classic beauties and cinema screen sirens. With 17 total looks, Madame Sher mixes various colors and textures and fabrics to arrive at incredible works of art. Even though none of these are in my budget, they’re still a complete joy to look at.

What do you think of Madame Sher’s ‘Beautiful Darlings’ collection? Do you have a favorite? And has anyone else heard of this corsetiere before or purchased a corset from her? I want to talk with you in the comments!

    I know Lucy of Lucy’s Corsetry has purchased two of Madame Sher’s corsets. She hasn’t posted a review yet though but she tends to let the corset break in and wear a little before reviewing it. You could always try e-mailing her and ask her how it’s going though!

    These are the most beautiful and unique corset designs I’ve ever seen!

    I can’t stop looking at these. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like them in my life. They are so creative, so classic, so elegant. Just stunning.

    I discovered Madame Sher a while back. I haven’t been able to afford one of her amazing creations yet, but I love to just explore the site and drool of their amazing collections from time to time. It also helps inspire me with ideas for when I start making another corset. I’ve only made one so far, so I’m a ways off from this sort of craftsmanship and beauty.
