This listing is for the corset only. It is shown worn with a Ragamuffin Dress, Ruffle Bustle, Cuff, and Ruffle Skirt. None of these are included, but they are available separately in my shop. To inquire about this corset in another size, just send me a message. =)

This is my less expensive Basic styling. It has less steel than my Deluxe corsets (15 pieces instead of 21), 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.

This brand new style of underbust corset features a longer length, higher and semi-straight underbust cut, and lower hip coverage than any of my other designs. This particular one is made in my usual patchwork style from a high end woven brown, russet, rose, cream, and caramel Victorian damask paired up with a rose and gold scroll patterned damask and trimmed with russet ribbed silk bias. It has a solid front and is grommeted down the back with antique brass grommets which lace up with flat black cotton heavy duty corset lacing tipped in metal aglets. It is interlined in heavy cotton canvas, and lined in a gold tone on tone damask. This particular corset is boned in 15 places all around the torso with flat 1/4" steel in a combination of both domestic and English steel for added durability, including double thick steel down the back lacings for a super flat lacing area. The center front panel has 1/2" wide flat steel for extra support.

Actual garment measures:
Underbust (4 1/2" above waistline): 27"
Waist: 23 3/4"
Upper Hip (5" below waistline): 32 1/2"
Front Length: 12"
Side Length: 9 1/4"
Back Length: 12 1/4"

This corset will best fit:
Underbust: 27.5"-30"
Waist: 26.5"-28.5"
Upper Hip: 33"-35.5"
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, go down another size). The largest will have 2 1/2" to 3 1/2" of gap in the back, depending on your snugness preferences. The back lacings are cut to accommodate up to about 3 1/2" of gap. Photo model measures 30.5" ribcage, 29.5" waist, and 36" 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 just beneath your bra band. The corset's top will fit you 4 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 5" lower than your waist. Tie a string around your natural waist, and measure down 5". 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. I can accommodate rush orders and overnight shipping. If you're in a hurry, just contact me to find out shipping costs (postal Express Mail is about $26 on this item, and Express is almost, but not always, overnight). 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.

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.

Please email me with any questions. =) Thanks!
