*** This listing is for the corset ONLY.*** The swag-front bustle skirt and the Willow chemise are not included but may be available separately in my shop. If you don't see one and want one, just send me a message. =)

This overbust corset style features a more flat front neckline and is slightly shorter all around than my sweetheart neckline corsets. It is made from a lovely random patchwork of purple and aubergine tapestries and damasks accented with gold, black, teal, cornflower, and light brown. It is trimmed with aubergine tone on tone striped damask bias. It has antique brass grommets at the front and back which lace up with super strong flat black cotton corset lacing tipped with metal aglets. It has a layer of built in heavy duty twill tape at the waist to enable tighter lacing and to enhance durability. It is interlined in heavy cotton coutil, a tightly woven fabric with virtually no stretch to it made specifically for corsetry, and lined in a gold damask. This particular corset is boned down the front with 2 pieces of 1/2" wide double thickness European flat steel (super rigid, amazing quality steel!), down the back with 1/4" wide double thickness Euro steel, and around the body with 18 additional pieces of 1/4" wide flat high carbon spring steel (22 pieces of steel total).

Actual garment measures:
Bust (7" above waist): 28"
Waist: 22"
Upper Hip (4 1/4" below waist): 30"
Front Length: 13 1/2"
Side Length: 11 1/4"
Back Length: 13 1/2"

This corset will best fit:
Bust: 31"-33"
Waist: 25"-27"
Upper Hip: 30-33"
For reference, the smallest number in each fit range will have little to no gap at all at the lacings. The largest will have 2 1/2" to 3 1/2" of gap, or slightly more, depending on your snugness preferences. If you fall into the smaller end of the fit range, but definitely want a gap at the back lacings, opt for a smaller size. In my fit estimates, I've taken into account a gap at the back only. If you wish to gap the front lacings, you can add your desired gap size onto the fit range. For reference, the model in the photos measures 36" bust, 29.5" waist, 35" upper hip.


Sizing is a matter of personal preference, so please measure the following:

Bust: This is NOT your bra size. Measure around your bust at its fullest point. The measurements I quote in my fitting guide represent actual bust measured with the tape measure held firmly but not restrictively. The bustline on this corset falls approximately 7" above your natural waist. Please use this for a length reference to be sure your torso isn't too short or long for this length.

Waist: This your waist at its thinnest point, which will be higher than your modern waistline is. Measure this both firmly without constriction, and then again as tightly as you can. We all squish differently, so this will differ accordingly. Compare your tightly taken measurement with the corset's actual waist measurement, subtracting for any gap you'd prefer at the lacings. The measurements I quote in my fitting guidelines should be compared with your measurement taken without constriction, for reference.

Upper Hip: This corset's upper hip will fall about 4 1/4" lower than your waist. Tie a string around your natural waist for a reference point and measure down 4 1/4". Measure around your torso at this point. When you lace your corset up, what you reduce at your waist will be pushed downwards, so there will be considerably less "squish" factor at the hips. Go by your actual upper hip measurement and use that to compare with the fit range I've listed above.

I ship packages just about every business day of the week, so expect about a 1 business day wait between payment and shipment. I ship via Priority Mail w/Delivery Confirmation and Insurance.

Should you buy the wrong size and want to exchange, you will be responsible both for return shipping and shipping on any exchange item. Items must be returned in new, unworn condition within 3 business days of confirmed delivery confirmation receipt of the package. I'll then issue you the purchase amount, minus shipping costs, towards another purchase with me. I don't issue refunds, but I am very willing to work with you to be sure you get a corset that you'll absolutely adore. Please send me a message with any questions or concerns. I'll reply really quickly! =)
