White bones are also known as spring steel bones but often look like plastic due to the white coating. This coating is nylon based and unlikely to chip or wear off. Spring steel bones in pre-finished lengths have had their ends dipped in the coating to create blunt tips. Spring steel bones come in many lengths and various widths, some qualities can also be bought in coils; allowing you to custom cut all your bones with limited waste.

If you cut your bones to the length you require, you will have to tip them. The best way to tip bones of any type of steel is to apply “U” shaped tips. “U” tips or “bone tips” are aluminum tips that can be applied to cut ends of steel, using pliers or a bone tipping tool. The application of bone tips is not difficult, but can take time to learn. Using aluminum bone tips means the tips of your bones are very blunt and will cause limited damage. For instructions on applying bone tips see Tips & Tricks.

Any of these spring steel bones can be used in corsets but it is important to remember that spring steel bones only flex from front to back, they do not flex sideways. Think of a steel ruler, even better pick one up and flex it to see how spring steel bones work. These bones cannot be used in some curved casings due to this characteristic. For some curved seams you need to use spiral bones.

Garments made with these bones may be hand washed but should never be put in a washing machine.
