Spiral Bones

Spiral boning is made of steel and looks like chain mail armour hat has been flattened and pushed together in rows. This boning comes in two sizes, 1/4 inch and 7/16 inch. For a woman who is busty, use the 7/16-inch spiral boning because it is thicker. The advantage of the spiral boning is that it is flexible, so the corset will be very comfortable.

Finished Steel Bones

Finished steel bones are also called spring steel bones or white bones. These bones are made of a high-quality steel and are coated with plastic. The finished steel bones give more support and can only bend forward and backward. The 13-millimeter finished steel will give a women with a bigger bust more support.

German Plastic Bones

German plastic bones are also good to use for a busty woman because they are strong and reinforced to give the needed support. Unlike the steel boning, the German plastic boning can be cut with scissors. They also can withstand water so the corset does not need to be cleaned professionally.

Synthetic Whalebone

Synthetic whalebone works in corsets that require a lot of boning, like historical corsets. These bones are lightweight and give good support. They can be washed or dry cleaned. If they are used for a busty women they should be sewn in layers to help hold everything together.
