Balloons in Flight slim overbust corset. A fun choice with brass swing hooks! Comes with a stiffened, floating modesty panel.
Overbust corsets are available in 10 waist sizes and three bust sizes, for a total combination of 30 different sizes!
Because of the expandable side hip ties, they are fantastic for pear-shaped clients especially (if you have a dramatic natural hip spring). The low edge of this corset also does well to pull in any protruding lower tummy, and the sweetheart bustline will push up, support and accentuate the bosom.

The overbust corsets come in three different bust sizes. Please double check your full bust circumference in inches, and don’t go solely by your cup size, since “sister sizes” may come into play here!
Bust size Small is ~6 inches larger than the corseted waist circumference.
Bust size Medium is ~8 inches larger than the corseted waist circumference.
Bust size Large is ~10 inches larger than the corseted waist, and up to 12 inches in the larger sizes (above ~ 34″ corseted waist).
For all of these corsets, the hips range from 8-16 inches larger than the waist, due to adjustable side hip ties.
For instance, a size 24M overbust corset would fit someone with a full bust circumference of 32-33″ and an adjustable hip of 32″ – 40″ due to the expandable side hip ties. However, as a mass-produced garment there is a natural variation in these corsets so the proportions may not be exact in every corset.
Lengthwise, the overbust corsets are approximately:
14 inches long in the center front.
15 inches long at the princess seam.
12 inches long at the side seam.
14 inches long at the center back.
It is generally advised that corsets are ordered approximately 4 inches (10cm) smaller than your natural waist – however if you would like to have your size verified before purchase, you may fill out the measurement form on this page. Please note that this sizing guide is only for the corsets sold on this website, and is not intended to replace a consultation (where external brands are discussed freely).
This corset contains two core layers of cotton twill, and a fashion fabric of hot air balloons.
The fashion fabric is always fully fused to the twill, which adds strength and prevents bubbling or wrinkling – creating a smooth line on the body.
All overbust corsets contain 18 spiral steel bones and 6 flat steel bones, plus a front fastening busk and back grommets/ laces.

Returns and Exchanges:
You have a full 30 days from the purchase date to “try out” the corset and you can return or exchange it as long as the corset does not have any stains, scents, or obvious signs of wear. Just fill out the exchange form, ship it back and I’ll give you a full refund (minus shipping; USPS takes that). Lucy Corsetry does not charge any restocking fee! After the 30 days are over, the corset will not be accepted for refund, but it is still under warranty for life – some wear is normal, but if something prematurely breaks from normal use, your corset is still eligible for exchange. Please see our TOS and Policies for more information.
