Product Information

This playful corset uses feminine flourishes to echo the statement styling of 20th century corsetry. Reminiscent of the lingerie of the time, its ruffled lace edge and delicate bow add a hint of sensuality to its structured shape. Even with ornate finishes it remains functional and is able to reduce the waist by an impressive 4 inches, while remixing comfortable. It features exposed metal fastenings at the front and a traditional lace-up at the back, with wide lustrous ribbon for added impact. Its vibrant shade of pink channels a ladylike effect that’s perfect for historical costuming, and just as good for a fresh contrast to denim.

Our sizing chart below is to be used with your body measurements. "Waist Taming" corsets are rated to a 4" Waist Reduction and are to be worn with at least a 2" gap at the back. This is already factored in to our size chart. Simply select the Corset Size that corresponds with Your Natural Waist Measurement

Corsets are fully adjustable at the back. You can "Open" or "Close" the lacing at the Bust, Waist & Hip independently for the perfect fit. Our patterns have been developed and tested to fit a variety of body shapes using these adjustments.

The majority of the tension running through a corset is focused on the waist. This makes the waist the critical measurement when sizing your corset. The hip and bust can be "Opened" or "Closed" to fit provided the waist is accurate.

WAIST REDUCTION

The Waist Reduction rating is the maximum waist reduction achievable of the corset. Just because a corset is rated to a 4" or 5" waist reduction doesn't mean you have to wear them that tightly, you have the choice between comfort & control

Waist Reduction not your priority? This rating will also give you an idea of the weight of the corsets in our collections, from lingerie to expert level corsetry, as well as the support they offer

DISGUISE RATING

The Disguise Rating is how invisible a corset is underneath clothing, relative to the other designs available in our collections

All corsets & foundation garments will be difficult to completely disguise underneath bodycon and very tight fitting sheer garments. Dresses with scooped back can also be problematic when pairing with overcast designs

COMFORT RATING

The Comfort Rating is how comfortable your corset will be. Some fabrics are less suited to longer periods of wear and more theatrical designs can become heavy if wearing all day

Naturally you will find the your corset will be less comfortable the tighter you lace it, corsetry is about finding the balance between comfort & control that best suits you
