The measurement of the XL when laced as tight a it will go is 29 1/2 inches. I needed it to go smaller than that so I will be buying another in a smaller size and keeping this one for wearing over costumes.
As far as I can tell, without cutting into it, it seems to really be spiral steel boning. I don't think the other reviewers know what they're talking about. Spiral steel boning is SUPPOSED to bend. It bends in ALL directions, which is how I know it is spiral steel and not plastic (which would only bend two ways). You can also feel the ridges of the spirals (upon close inspection only).
The boning in ANY corset is not meant to do anything other than keep the fabric from crumpling and riding up. It is the fabric itself that holds you in. People should do a little research before giving bad reviews. I will totally recommend this exact corset (and seller) to friends. It is very good quality for a RTW item. I've done a lot of research on corsets and this one is exactly what it claims to be. I do suggest replacing the lacing, the ribbion is just for looks, not durability. I also wish they would give the exact measurements of the corsets when laced all the way, I could have avoided getting the wrong size. I strongly suggest buyers research instructions for owning a corset (lacing, tying, breaking in, care...) Corsets are not the average clothing item, they require a little more responsibility on the owners part.

I received it today. Exactly as pictured, the string cord whatever you want to call it is good & for me wasn't flimsy. I was worried that it wouldn't fit correctly based off of the fit expectancy (51%) but I took the chance and it fit perfectly for me. I already wore it for 7 hours and it was definitely quite the experience. Difficult to drive in but I will continue wearing mine and when this one is as tight as possible I'll order another same brand.

Very durable fabric...good quality corset. For tight-lacing just change the ribbon out for actual laces. Otherwise just keep the ribbon lacing for fashion. This product has exceeded my expectations. However, this particular corset is probably not good for girls with short torsos (I'm 5'2)...it's hard to breathe in and move around when sitting; especially driving But I bet this would be great for taller women!

First of all I love that I was able to buy this item for 75% less than what it would cost anywhere else. It fits very well. The only complaint I have is that the ribbons (that lace up the back) are not very strong or sturdy. So I had to buy some actually rope laces. Other than that it's a perfect fit.

This is a great corset for the price, you really can't beat it. I was actually surprised how nice the quality was. It feels and fits like many of the much more expensive corsets that I can buy in local shops. I am using it for a costume and was searching for something that didn't look cheap, gave me some nice curves, and inexpensive enough that it didn't get worn again I wouldn't be upset. This was perfect and I am thinking now that it is something I would wear more often than I thought. Like other reviews mention the laces are ribbon and maybe a little flimsy, but no big deal. Most importantly: measure your waist! I am usually a medium in U.S. clothing so I was a little upset about buying an XL. However the measurements are not wrong (I have a 30 inch waist), anything smaller would have left too much of a gap in the back and I still have room to cinch smaller if I lose a few inches.

I absolutely love this corset.. I had a baby two weeks ago & this fits perfectly fine & when tied it took 5 inches off my waist.. My belly is gone & it's making me a very happy person.. It feels nice, it's comfortable.. I would give it a 10 start if I could!!! I'm at 32inches at the moment & with it on I went down to 27!! How awesome is that?!!! I love it! Love it! Love it!!

The corset is beautiful and gives me a nice hourglass shape. I use it for back support because it fits better under clothing than my bulky back braces. The flexible steel boning makes it supportive, but not too rigid. Yes, it does run small, so read the sizing chart for this product, not the generic Amazon clothing sizing chart. I usually wear a large shirt, but a 2XLarge or XXLarge is my size in this corset. Mine does not lace closed (yet), but I am losing weight, so the laces will tighten as I go.

Only complaint: it closes in the back with flimsy ribbon and comes with a silly pair of thong panties that look more like a big pirate costume eye patch. I understand that this item is listed under lingerie, but it is much better than a "pretend" corset.

For real support or waist training, buy a proper corset lacing cord (about $10 on Amazon) and put the ribbon and weird "thong" in your collection of sewing scraps for next Halloween, LOL!

I was actually VERY shocked by how well this corset was made. It was my very first corset, and I am in love! It's VERY sturdy, and the fabric doesn't feel like it's about to rip apart, it's very strong and very well made. My only complaint is that the laces are kind of thin and flimsy, and I foresee replacing them in the future. Make sure before you order that you TAKE YOUR MEASUREMENTS! Corsets don't fit like normal clothes, and follow the sellers sizing chart, not amazons. Very very impressed with this product! I can't wait to see what my boyfriend thinks ;)

This corset is very beautiful and seems well enough made considering the cost. The shape on the other hand is rather pathetic. If you have any natural curve what so ever this will not fit you. When I tightned the laces it was still loose on my waist and far too tight in the hips, it almost seemed to have the opposite effect of a typical waist trainer. When you lay this out flat it is completley strait cut, I will not be wearing this anytime soon.
