Review about items
Both linen and cotton are great quality and tailored to fit you. They will hide under your clothes easily unlike other braies that will bunch up and show under your clothing. Making these braies a great choice for your outfits.
great hand made item, fast production and shipping time, fitted me perfectly, great communications throughout purchase. Even arrived in brown paper string tied parcel with a waxed seal..a great touch. Highly recomend this product. Thank you Steel Mastery team :>
A bit long if you have a medium-frame like I do, however it certainly is resilient. I would advise nonetheless to use some braces to relieve back pains if you intend to use the belt to support plate legs.
I ordered these chausses and they came as promised. They were of excellent construction. If you live in a warm climate, however, be sure to only get 1 layer of padding. I got two layers and it was quite thick. I had my seamstress friend cut out one layer of padding. I may have her open up some vents too, but that's only because of the California heat. If thick, comfy padding is what you're after, this is the right product for you.
