The Swedish factory made similar styles as Britain and America but uniquely tailored for the Scandinavian woman and her predilection for the high-waisted girdle.

It is present on every Swedish Spirella in our collection. It was a feature on English Spirellas that were presented to employees as wedding presents!
The girdle above, left that looks like a Britishis a purely Swedish confection. It is a couple of inches longer than its UK cousins, and is made from a very transparent nylon. The cross-stitching down the front of the garment of course harks back to the era of the front-laced corset.
Soirella the nylon and the whimsical touches, this is a very serious garment! The girdle on the right is a Swedish Spirella made from the same, very transparent, but exceptionally strong nylon material. Note, once again the high waist, the lovely rose-bud detailing and the chrome suspenders clips with the word 'Spirella' stamped therein. Very serious but very elegant. Spirelettes were also on offer, and note, once again, the little rosebud details at the top of the suspenders.
Inthere were 2, corsetieres in Sweden and byan amazing total of 3, corsetieres serviced this long country with another 1, in Denmark. It was stated in Spirellaa S pirella magazine of the time that the Swedish tended to " go for high corsets and well-defined waists ".

It has been worn regularly as the horizontal creases testify. The owner was tall, since the majority of the corset's length lies below the hips.
We can estimate that the woman would have been about 5' 9" tall with 32" waist and 42" hips; not unusual for a Scandinavian today, however, this women would have cut quite a figure in her youth!
The owner must have cut off the suspenders there were four originally in favour of tights. This is another help in dating the garment. The lacing is not original. I suspect, that the owner was an elderly lady who had looked after the corset for some time.
Turning to tights, the suspenders were cut off, and with advancing years, as her weight diminished, lacing became unnecessary. The old frayed laces were replaced and then never used again.
The Kordett became a wrap-around hook-side garment that the lady probably did not need, but was an essential part of her Spirella Korsett.

This was an extra that could be ordered to aid with what Spirella in England quaintly referred to as "toileting". The gorgeous rosebud detailing, that seems to be a hallmark of Swedish Spirella is present as on all the other Spirella Korsett garments we have seen.
This last corset should technically be called a 'laced girdle' since the elastic sections run from top to bottom.
The back-lacing would only be for periodic adjustment. Note the high waist that apparently was de rigeur for the Swedish lady of fashion. The instructions that came with this corset are displayed on a separate page.
