This listing is for the corset only. The Cora Chemise, Bustle Belt, Cuff, and Pixie Petal Skirt may be available in separate listings (if you don't see one in my store and want a custom one, just email! =) Please note that this combo is One of a Kind. I am out of stock on the solid purple damask now, and will not be able to replace it.

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.

This is my less expensive Basic styling. It has less steel than my Deluxe corsets(16 pieces instead of 22), and does not have the waist tape or coutil lining. That said, it's still a pretty darned tough little corset. All seams are still 4x stitched, and all steel is still high quality carbon spring steel.

It is made in my usual patchwork style from 2 different fabrics: dark purple and gold damask and dark purple tone on tone damask. It is trimmed with a gold faux silk bias. It laces up the front and back with flat black cotton heavy duty corset lacing tipped in metal aglets through matte black grommets. It is interlined in cotton twill and lined in a gold damask (it's technically reversible if you cut out my garment care tag!). This particular corset is boned down the front lacings with 1/2" wide spring steel and in an additional 14 places all around the body with 5/16" wide high carbon spring steel for a total of 16 steel bones throughout.

Actual garment measures:
Underbust (3 1/2" above waistline): 27"
Waist: 24"
Upper Hip (3 1/4" below waistline): 30"
Front Length: 10 1/4"
Side Length: 6 3/4"
Back Length: 9 1/2"

This corset will best fit:
Underbust (at 3 1/2" above waist): 27.5"-30"
Waist: 26 1/2"-29"
Upper Hip (at 3 1/4" below waist): 30.5"-33"
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 model in the photos measures 30" underbust, 29.5" waist, and 33.5" upper hip, for reference.


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 1/4" lower than your waist. Tie a string around your natural waist, and measure down 3 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 really, really want happy customers. If you have any questions or concerns about your purchase with me, please don't hesitate to email. I promise, I'll do all I can to make sure you're absolutely in love with your clothing from me!

Please email me with any questions. =) Thanks!
