Thank you for your feedback.
I followed the sizing chart and fit was exactly as expected.
It is well made, flattering, true to size and form-fitting, yet not terribly rigid.
I am a bigger, curvier gal, and have always had a hard time finding a corset that fit and did its job as a corset .

Product Description

Why you should wear an authentic corset?

Corsets will make you appear thinner, instantly. It's true. Authentic corsets are designed to reduce your waistline, and flatten your stomach just by putting the corset on. An inexpensive corset with plastic boning will not hold up to very much pressure, and the eyelets will pull out. The structure of an authentic corset will put pressure on your waist which will push the skin and flesh up (and down) and away from the waist making you lose inches in a matter of minutes.

Corsets can help you lose weight. Wearing a corset puts pressure on your stomach as well as your waistline. One of the reasons people lose weight when they have gastric bypass surgery is because their stomach is made smaller, so they feel full much more quickly. A corset will produce a similar effect by putting pressure on the stomach, causing us to feel full much more quickly.

Corsets are great back support. We are often approached by people who have back problems who need a support brace. The medical "corsets" that are available are ugly, bulky and not custom fitted. Authentic corsets can be custom fitted, made of lighter-weight fabrics, and will create a beautiful silhouette while giving you the back support you want or need.

Corsets will improve your posture. Just try slouching in a well fitted corset! The boning will hold you upright, and may poke into you if you are bent over. The pressure on your tummy will support your body and lift your upper chest.

This is a genuine steel boned corset. To prove it is steel boned, you can put a magnet over the bones. The image shown above has been taken on this corset style. We do not use images of other unrelated companies' corsets or generic images.

    I own a lot of corsets and this rates up there with 4 to 5 hundred dollar corsets. It looks better in person and is of great quality. Don't be afraid to by a size smaller if you really want to cinch everything up,this corset can take it. All to often corsets at this price are appearance only and not really functional. What I mean is others may look cute but if you try to pull them real tight something breaks ,you can put your back into cinching this baby up and that's the whole idea behind a corset. Don't pass this one up,this is by far the best corset at this price

    Fabric: real, soft leather (the Shaper corset homepage says it's made from goat leather) and real, sturdy cotton, as far as I can tell. No visible damages.

    Workmanship: good, all the seams are ok and look durable. Two or three of the grommets and rivets are unevenly spaced but it's unnoticeable unless you look very, very closely.

    Sizing: With an exact 28-inch waist I ordered a size 38 as recommended by the size table. The corset runs true to size, with one exception: I had to add three additional grommets to the neck closure otherwise it would have hung loosely from my nape.

    Shape: It features a long pointed front (and back) but sitting is possible without a problem. It is long enough to look good on people taller than 5.7ft.

    In action: Since purchasing I wore it once, but for 11 hours straight (to a concert and the aftershow party) and found it to be one of the most comfortable corsets I own. I am a light-to-medium lacer with a lacing gap of about 2 inches, so your mileage may vary.

    Effect on environment: very positive, I got asked where on earth I purchased this beautiful item.

    I've owned (and still own) many corsets over the last couple decades. This corset surpasses them all. It is well made, flattering, true to size and form-fitting, yet not terribly rigid. The boning is awesome, the buckles are stylish and the laces are incredibly long just like a true Victorian corset. It comes with SIX detachable, high quality garters!! The strap which attaches behind the neck is very comfortable, and is wonderful for those of us who are "top heavy". I will definitely purchase other corsets from this seller, particularly this style (Black Leather Victorian Vintage Shaper Corset Steel Boned Back Lace Up, Front Buckle ) in red and white.

    Simply amazing, and for this price... it is the best deal I've EVER found. Highly recommended!!! Truly, I can't say enough good things about this beautiful corset.

    Size: Corset Size 44 - Waist size 33-34 inches
    I am very pleased with this corset. I was hoping it was a bit longer but the neck piece fits fine. Nice quality although tucking the placket into place can be tricky as you tighten the corset but well worth the effort. The sizing guide was dead-on.

    Size: Corset Size 42 - Waist size 31-32 inches Verified Purchase
    We both love this item the only thing is if you have a short torsoe the piece that goes around your neck might not adjust small enough. An easy fix is to punch some holes evenly spaced beyond the other ones should only need one or two. The quality is amazing along with the detail. Wife says it is very comfortable and could be worn for many hours it does not pinch at all. Follow the sizing guide exactly! Do not think there is any room to wiggle again this is so important I will repeat make sure you purchase your actual size. Infact if you have not measured your waist in a while make sure you do before you order. This is one of the best items we have ordered on-line, most people should be impressed with the quality compared to the price.

    Size: Corset Size 40 - Waist size 29-30 inches Verified Purchase
    This is REALLY good quality material. The things I didn't like about it is that there is a little too much material around the armpits and kind of rubs. Also, it goes down really far in the front and if your legs are *ahem* up, it rubs really uncomfortably on your thighs. I would absolutely buy this brand again, but probably not this exact style.

    This is my first "real" corset. I'm enjoying getting into it and tightening it. I ordered 10 inches over my waist size, but I think because my hips are significantly larger than my waist I end up having a gap towards the bottom. I'm hoping with the stretching that will happen over use that it will eventually provide coverage, but if not I can just push the flap out of the way and have my bare skin show or the shirt I may be wearing underneath. Again, it's my first, but it looks like some of the more expensive corsets that I've seen friends wear. The leather is high quality and the construction seems wonderful.

    I am 5'11.5 and it's long enough for my torso and the halter fits perfectly for me.

    I just got this corset in the mail. I am a fire performer and needed a stylish leather corset under 200 bucks. This thing is work of beauty! The leather is soft but the corset construction is solid and strong, the buckles are quality, the sewing is superb,and the fit is perfect! I ordered according to my waist measurement/corset sizing chart. I am 5'8", wear a size 14, I am not skinny, and this corset cinches me in beautifully. The boning is the real deal. The neck strap is no problem and the strap(s) hides any armpit flab that pokes over. The corset is as comfortable as a corset can be, and I can move in it. I love it. As for the lacing instructions; if you are familiar with wearing corsets then you will have no problem. The instructions are a little hard to understand but you can go online and look up look up corset lacing. I would suggest a better quality lace. The one included is shoelace quality, but that's no big deal. I was hesitant to order a corset online but the reviews were helpful and I took a chance and LOVE it. I will order from this company again.
