This is a layaway plan listing for a $179.99 corset. Pay half now and a second listing will be made to complete the order when the item is nearly ready to ship in 2-4 weeks (depending on when you're ready and able to finalize your purchase).

*This is a custom-sewn corset made to your measurements (see diagram). I will need 4 measurements in order to complete your corset. 1.) how tall are you? 2.) your underbust measurement 3.) your natural waist measurement 4.) your upper hip measurement.
For the last 3 measurements, measure around your torso at the points which correspond to the lines on the diagram ( the last image). You can give me measurements in inches or centimeters. Please ask if you have any questions about how to take your measurements.

This is a new, updated version of our popular skeleton corset. The image has been painstakingly redone to give the bones a sense of depth as well as a more aged appearance.
I've also elongated the pattern and tweaked it a bit so that it fits even better.

The lace trimmed cameo corset is a Louise Black signature item and has been around since 2004. This underbust corset is constructed from 7 sections of alternating rococo print & stripe canvas, w/ a layer of heavy duck canvas sandwiched between a medieval-print toile canvas lining. The edges and seams are encased in bias tape & lace. This sturdy, under-bust style is more of a decorative corset (not for severe waist reduction/training), but it will pull in your waist a couple inches and give your mid-section a waspy, hour glass appearance.

There is steel boning throughout (with 1/2" and 1/4" steel along the side seams, back, & front). It laces up through double sided black grommets and has a vintage lithograph of a human skeleton torso on the front, surrounded by more lace and hand pleated ribbon. This corset can be made in sizes 21", 22", 23", 24", 25", 26", 27", 28", 29", 30", 31", and 32". The front averages 12" tall and the back is 11.5-12" tall. The sides are approx. 10" tall. I can make it a little shorter or a little taller if need be.

When choosing a size it's best to go 2-4" smaller than your natural waist. 1-2" smaller will allow you to almost fully close the corset and 3-4" will leave a small gap in the back to show off the lacing. Please take into consideration that bulky clothing will add 1/2"-1" to your measurements.

Shipping is via USPS mail with mandatory insurance for all US and INTL. customers (so that the packages can be tracked).
