I have a 41 inch waist and will use the corset to get to a 36. Going by their chart the 36 is what they recommeneded that I order... Its to big. I need more like a 32...This said I love the feel of this corset. Strong bones, The hooks close themselves (easily) The fabric felt good on my skin, and the laces are long and easy to use... However due to the wrong size I will be returning this item and getting a smaller size... The picture shows that its may be longer but It barely covers my belly button... I need one that is longer....This corset is not just beautiful, but I can tell by the construction that it will provide someone with a great corset...Strong Steel. the 3/4 due to not being long enough and it runs big.... (but it is beautiful) I will be ordering from this company again... (I will repost after the return and let you know how that went...

This corset is lovely if you are within the height (torso length) that it is intended for. Read carefully the side and front lengths and measure yourself in those places; if you've got a long torso or are generally tall, it won't fit properly (the bust will be too low and the hipline too high, which doesn't look smooth unless you're already waif thin).

Quality of design: subtle waist-hip difference, which is good for most modern women or those with less curvy builds. If your upper hip area is already much bigger than your waist, this won't lace up evenly top-to-bottom, but it should still work just fine. The length from waist to hip opening is generally comfortable for most ladies, giving you lots of room to bend side-to-side, and over. This makes sitting far more comfortable, since the front bones are short enough not to gouge into the thigh-hip crease. All in all, a very forgiving design to go with for your first corset. The 2 layers of canvas/twill + 1 decorative outer layer is pretty standard for decent corsets. It prevents the bones from poking through the outer layer and means it will stretch less over time for frequent wearers.

The boning is laid out exactly as it should be for moderate tight lacing, so it won't crumple at the sides or buckle outward under the laces. Spiral steel boning bends slightly in all directions, so it is much more comfortable over the ribs, and the spring-steel boning "steel bars" at the front/back center is what makes it hold it's shape no matter how long you wear it. The lacing holes are properly spaced (close together) to prevent the boning from buckling outward, too. The style of the front-center and the type of busk means the bottom edge may bend away from the body when you lace it tightly, but it should lay flat if you aren't aggressive in your lacing.

Sizing: As with all corsets, the more "stuffing" you have around your waist, the bigger the reduction you can get without bending the rib bones. Padding displaces up/down easily, making a 4-6" reduction plausible. If you are fairly firm or fit, you can only compact yourself so far without bending the ribs, and 1-2" reduction may be all you can handle without serious discomfort. Also, if you are uncomfortable in restrictive clothing, aim for a corset closer to your natural waist size, rather than 4-6" smaller.

All in all, a very good corset for the price!

This is a super elegant and a very nicely made corset. Unfortunately, i ordered it too small. I don't recommend if you are new to corseting going any smaller than the 3 inches down when ordering. Also, I would make sure you round up when measuring. My waist measures a 26 1/2 and I ended up ordering a 20 thinking these corsets run larger by one size after reading other reviews. Needless to say it was way too small!! I decided then to order the 24. This size was out of stock in this style but the store was super helpful and told me to just pick a different style. I did and it was shipped immediately. This new one fit perfectly! (I may have been able to wear the 22..?) (The one I ended up with was the Timeless S-27 Blue Silk with Black Lace Underbust Corset) The corset almost meets at the top when drawn in but i still have 2-3 inches everywhere else. ;) I broke it in for a few days and then I wore it over my halloween costume and everyone asked where i purchased it. I of course shared the information with them highly recommending this store. ;) Amazingly, the corset is very sturdy and surprisingly even when tightly drawn..comfortable. (comfortable for a corset....lol ;) I highly recommend these corsets! I'll definitely be returning for more!

I love this corset. I am a 40 inch chest/35 inch waist/40 inch hips and im 5'3. i ordered a size 28. It gives me this vintage hourglass figure and I have room to tighten it as my waist gets smaller. It's so lovely. I can comfortably wear it all day as well as sit, breath, and bend over without it feeling uncomfortable. The quality is great and the satin material is comfortable. Its on the shorter side so im not sure if this would work (as far as holding everything in) for someone with a really long torso or someone who is very tall if they are looking to pull in more than 2-3 inches in thier waist. I would highly recommend this product :)

A great buy for the price! I am 5'8" and a size 12 and a 28 fit very well. It also came pre-laced in a way that made it fairly simple to put on and take off by myself.

I highly recommend this corset!

Beautiful, with an abundance of strong steel busks (especially the solid ones at the laces, hooks, & eyes), The layered and bonded real satin & cotton-backed material is solid, thick & strong looking (not one layer) and should last a long time without the instant fraying, unraveling, and ripping after a few uses with the $40-$60 corsets I've tried. Buy it if you need a beautiful, functional, strong, long-lasting corset. I will send it back and order the 34 inch.

This corset is gorgeous, and very well made. The satin is lovely, and the fit is smaller than I anticipated, but hey, it's a corset! Worth every penny.

Needed to have this corset for a show I'm doing. Customer Services is fantastic. They double checked with me about sizing to ensure I had a perfect fit and I received the shipment very quickly. The quality of the piece is high grade and will hold up to a rigorous performance schedule. Really love it!!
