Description

Black cashmere sweetheart overbust corset in the new 2020 hourglass silhouette!  If you lean towards more natural breathable fabrics, or you’d like something to match your business suit, this polished sophisticated plain black cashmere overbust is the ticket.

Overbust corsets are available in 10 waist sizes, 3 different cup-size accommodations for EACH waist size (small, medium, and large cup), in addition to adjustable ties in the center front, so you have multiple points to tweak to get a highly personalized fit – more so than any other OTR overbust on the market.

The low center front of this corset does well to pull in and support any protruding lower tummy, and the sweetheart bustline will push up, support and accentuate the bosom.

Measurements:

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!

For instance, a size 24M overbust corset would fit someone with a full bust circumference of 33″ and a low hip of 35″. 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:

15.5 inches long in the center front.

16 inches long at the princess seam.

13 inches long at the side seam.

15.5 inches long at the center back.

 

Sizing:

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).

 

Contents:

This corset contains two core layers of cotton twill, and a fashion fabric of black cashmere which is fade resistant, abrasion resistant, and breathable.

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 20 spiral steel bones and 4 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; UPS 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.

    I love this corset so much! This is my first corset and I was skeptical ordering an overbust since they are harder to size it’s even harder because i’m plus size. But eventually I ordered a size 36 with a medium bust and I have a 45 inch waist I can fit so small because I have some fluff. This corset gives me such a nice shape I’ve only worn it for a couple days (I’m still seasoning) but it’s still amazing. I only have one problem that’s probably very common with overbust corsets, whenever I sit my tits go up so high they nearly touch my chin. Probably because i’m fuller figured.

    This is my first corset, and it’s so comfortable! Lucy’s sizing guide was a great help. I’m around 36″B-27″W-35″HH and I bought size 22L: I was worried about the lacing gap being too big, but even while seasoning it’s totally fine. The corset is just so supportive and well constructed, I’m totally in love.

    From the way the corset is built, the bust lacing bit looks like it wants to be open a little, in a narrow V. If you’re between bust sizes, it looks like it makes most sense to go down? (eg medium would have probably been fine for me as well). (But I’m not the expert so check with Lucy if you’re unsure!)

    Unfortunately, the inner lining of one of the bust cups is slightly smaller than the outer layer, so the outside wrinkles a bit while the other cup is totally smooth. It’s not a structural issue though, and it was probably just something that happened with my corset specifically! Otherwise the construction is great, the laces are great and easy to use, and it’s overall a wonderful corset.

    I’m happy I purchased this corset from Lucy. I have a few corsets from Timeless Trends but this is my first overbust corset. I watched Lucy’s video about this particular corset and integrated her review into my size choice. It fits perfectly.

    This is honestly the most comfortable off-the-rack overbust corset I’ve ever tried. Like all of the previous Timeless Trends corsets I’ve gotten, materials are high-quality and stitching is neat. The black cashmere is really smart. Lucy was incredibly helpful with sizing -offering me two consecutively sized options based on my measurements. I’m 46-38-50, and I tried both the 34S and the 32S. I have a large chest, but proportionally larger hips. I ended up liking the fit of the smaller one better- I feel like this corset skews just a bit big (and I’m rather squishy). I use this for daily wear under Victorian-inspired dresses, and it gives a nice silhouette and is comfortable all day. I love all the fancy fabrics it’s offered in as well! I’ll definitely get another one from Lucy at some point.

    Corset is well made and fits nicely. The cut is low enough at the bottom to bring in my lower tummy (which is chubby but not loose) and quite high at the back (good for the muffin-top but also keep in mind if you wear lower-backed tops and want to stealth). The ribs are only gently cupped. The wool fabric is super soft and not itchy AT ALL.

    I went with Lucy’s recommendation of a size 26L (my approximate natural measurements are 41″ bust, 31″ waist, 38″ high hip, and 41″ low hip). It seems to fit nicely with a 2″ gap in the back, though I do think I have more room in the bust than at the hips (I can wear my corset with the lacing gap under pants and there is no problem with gaping at the hips, but not so with the bust). We shall see how the bust fits when I fully close the corset after seasoning.

    Moral of the story is either I measured wrong or there is more bust room or less hip room than I thought, but either way the corset does it’s job :)

    Absolutely love this corset. It fits so great even before it’s fully seasoned. I can recommend if you have a large bust, it so comfortable.

  7. Rory (verified owner)

    So happy with this corset! It’s the first overbust corset I’ve been able to get since I have a large bust but a small waist. It is definitely a great daily wear corset! And Lucy went above and beyond with helping with sizing and just being an amazing business owner in general! ♡♡♡

  8. G (verified owner)

    Lucy was an amazing help, she talked me through everything and answered all my questions. The corset is fantastic, best one I’ve bought so far.

  9. Carine (verified owner)

    This is my first corset and I am so happy with it. It fits beautifully and is more comfortable than I even imagined a corset could be. The fact that the bust is adjustable is a godsend as I was able to adjust it separately whilst getting used to wearing a corset so the fit was never awkward and now I can decide how much cleavage I want to have on any given day!
    On top of that, Lucy was incredibly helpful and friendly! She truly goes beyond what I expect good customer service to be.

  10. Jen (verified owner)

    So happy with this corset! The fit, the material, just everything! And Lucy’s help was above and beyond! Best customer service! She was quick to reply and so knowledgeable! I was able to get a beautiful product that fits like it was custom made for me!

    My name is Paula and I’m a trans woman and find where are you corset the most wonderful thing I’ve ever done. Lucy as guided me help me with my measurements and recommended corset that will fit me like a glove. I have purchased many courses from Lucy and I found her service impeccable and the quality of our product unquestionably very good. I highly recommend Luces corsets and if you have a chance to read her book on corsets I would highly recommend it

  12. Gwen (verified owner)

    So glad I went with this corset. I was hesitant to buy a corset because I was worried about spending a lot of money for a cheap or ill-fitted product, but after consulting with Lucy I was confident that the corset would fit me perfectly! The compression is similar to that of a security blanket, and it’s thick enough I don’t have to worry at all about it collapsing over time. All in all, I would definitely buy from here again, and recommend it to others who are in the market for a good quality corset!
