This listing is for the corset only. The other items (Cora Chemise in beige) may be available in separate listings. If you don't see one in my store and want a custom one, just email! =)

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.

It is made in my usual patchwork style from alternating panels of Victorian patterned black and cream damask and black, gold, and cream diamond patterned jacquard. It is trimmed with a striped black tone on tone damask bias. It laces up the front and back with antique brass grommets that lace up with flat black cotton heavy duty corset lacing tipped in 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 cotton coutil, a tightly woven fabric made specifically for corset making, and lined in a pretty cream colored damask. This particular corset is boned down the front and back lacings with 1/4" wide double thickness European spring steel for added durability, and around the body with an additional 18 pieces of 1/4" wide flat white steel, for a total of 22 bones throughout.

Actual garment measures:
Underbust (3 1/2" above waistline): 33"
Waist: 30"
Upper Hip (3 1/2" below waistline): 37"
Front Length: 10 3/4"
Side Length: 7"
Back Length: 10 1/8"

This corset will best fit:
Underbust (at 3 1/2" above waist): 33.5"-36.5"
Waist: 32.5"-35"
Upper Hip (at 3 1/2" below waist): 37.5"-40"
For reference, the smallest number in each fit range will have little to no gap at all at the lacings (if you fit into the smaller end and want a real gap at the back, or want to tightlace, go down another size). The largest will have 2 1/2" to 3 1/2" of gap, depending on your snugness preferences. The fit ranges I've listed include a back gap only. If you wish to gap the front as well, you can add onto the ranges accordingly.

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. Ribs don't smoosh, so take the number you get here and compare with the actual corset's rib measurement. The difference will be your lacing gap. (If your ribs are smaller than the corset, this is not the size for you).

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 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. 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 US orders via Priority Mail w/Delivery Confirmation and Insurance. International orders ship via 1st Class Mail International.

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 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!
