Among the actresses to wear them were Phoebe Dynevor, who stars as Daphne Bridgerton.

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Penelope Featherington, shared an image from the corset-fitting process on Twitter.

The Irish actress wrote: 'Wearing my custom corset made for #Bridgerton by the incredible artist and wonderful man, Mr Pearl. Having something made for you by the world's foremost corsetier is very special.'

Despite her admiration, Miss Coughlan revealed it was still uncomfortable wearing one.

'I don't know if there are corsetry acting awards, but I would like one for doing a full jig in this,' she joked.

'Taking off a corset at the end of the day just feels incredible. It's a bra times 10,000.'
