Leatherotics Waspie 1827 Corset Review


This entry is a summary of the review video “Corset Review: Leatherotics Itty Bitty “Waspie” 1827″ which you can watch on YouTube here:

Fit, length Front is about 7″ long. Very short along the side, will not squish your hips. Modern slim silhouette, not a “wasp-waist” shape. Rather small around the lower ribcage. Good for short-waisted corseters, however not recommended for anyone with a lower belly pooch.
Material Two layers; heavy outer satin (easily wipes clean) and inner twill. No rippling, no stretching.
Construction Faux flat-felled seams (topstitching) between panels, internal boning channels made of twill.
Binding Satin bias binding in black; machine stitched on both inside and outside.
Waist tape A 1″ wide waist tape (ribbon) visible on lining side, stitched down at boning channels.
Modesty panel Attached flexible back lacing protector about 6″ wide, also front placket behind busk.
Busk 3 pins, Heavy busk (1″ wide on each side), about 6 inches long.
Boning 12 bones not including busk: 8 1/4″ wide spiral steel, 4 flats along the back.
Grommets 12 grommets total, size #0 two-part grommets with small flange; no wear/fraying/pulling out of grommets.
Laces Nylon braided black shoelace-style laces; some spring to them but no breaking/ripping.
Price $70.50 USD when not on sale.

Final Thoughts:

This is indeed a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe as you can wear it over clothing as a fashionable wide belt, or under clothing as a foundation piece. However, be aware that this cincher has a “modern slim” silhouette, which means there’s not a lot of curve inward at the waist, so it won’t cinch in the waist dramatically. Due to the shortness of this corset I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone who has lower-pooch issues.
