While the idea of boning usually brings corsets and evening wear to mind, it can be used broadly in daywear - giving structure to a vintage style dress, preventing necklines from sagging, keeping an oversized waistband or collar in shape, or preventing decorative folds from falling out of place. Boning is often necessary to give shape and structure to a garment, and also distributes weight across a garment evenly, reduces stress on seams, and allows for crisp lines and smooth silhouettes. 

Steel spiral boning is made from a steel coil which has been flattened, which allows it to flex in all directions while still being very strong. This means that steel spiral boning is quite comfortable to wear, especially when used over curvier areas of the body like busts and hips, while still providing strength, structure, and smoothness.

It is important to tip the bones carefully, to prevent any sharp edges of the steel from damaging your garment.
