This cute little corset is made in a shorter length waspie waist cincher style, perfect for those wanting more mobility or a corset that goes from costume to everyday clothing with ease. They're also the perfect underbust corset for gals like me who have a shorter torso.
This corset will be custom made to fit the buyer. My current wait time before shipment on custom corsets is approximately 4 weeks. If you need your corset sooner, please contact me before purchase. I am occasionally able to get things made faster, but you need to ask first to be sure.
Fabrics: Terracotta and olive damask + olive and black geometrically patterned jacquard
Lining: Sage and gold damask
Interlining: Cotton Coutil
Bias Trim: Ribbed terracotta silk
Laces: Flat black cotton heavy duty corset laces tipped in metal aglets
Grommets: Your choice of antique brass, matte black, brass, or nickel
Your corset will be made as shown with a solid front. If you'd like front lacings or a front busk closure, it is $10 extra. Just ask!
Your corset will have a built in layer of heavy duty twill tape at the waist to enable tighter lacing and to provide additional structural support. It will be boned down the front panel with 3 pieces of 1/2" wide high carbon spring steel, at the back laces with 1/4" wide double thickness European spring steel for added durability, and in an additional 16 places all around the body with 1/4" wide high carbon spring steel for a total of 21 bones throughout.
Please note that this is my shorter length underbust corset style. It is 6 1/2" to 7" down the side, depending on size. If you'd like a longer one, they run $15 more (that's for underbusts, please inquire for overbust pricing). Just let me know ahead of time and I can alter the listing for you accordingly.
Upon purchase, please send me a message with the following measurements and details:
Desired Back Gap (2" is what I typically pattern for, but if you'd like less or more, let me know)
Grommet Color Choice
Sizing is a matter of personal preference, so please measure the following:
Ribcage: This is NOT your bra band size. Measure around your ribs at 3 1/2" higher than your waist.
Waist: This your waist at its thinnest point, which will be higher than your modern waistline is. Measure this firmly but without constriction. If you need help finding your corset waistline, tie a string around your torso, then bend around back and forth and side to side. The string should settle at your natural waistline.
Tight Waist: Measure the same waistline again as tightly as you comfortably can. We all squish differently, so this measurement is really important to help me determine your "squish" factor when sizing a corset.
Upper Hip: This corset's upper hip will fall about 3 1/2" lower than your waist. Tie a string around your natural waist, and measure down 3 1/2". Measure around your torso at this point. Be sure when measuring this that you hold the tape measure evenly all the way around. It helps to measure in front of a mirror.
There is an approximately 4 week wait on all custom made corsets prior to shipment. I ship US orders via Priority Mail w/Delivery Confirmation and Insurance. I can accommodate rush orders and overnight shipping (just make sure you take the construction wait time into account). International orders ship out via 1st Class Mail International. If you'd prefer Priority International, please message me with your country so that I can quote you a price. Priority International usually runs about $30-$40 on items of this weight.
I do try to have an all sales are final policy with custom made garments since they are very individually sized for the buyer. Should you have any problems at all with the fit of your corset, I need to know immediately. I don't issue refunds, but I do want happy customers, so please send me a message with any questions/concerns that you may have. You'll get a quick reply, and I promise I'll work really hard to be sure you're absolutely in love with your clothing!
Please email me with any questions. =) Thanks!
