Black cashmere sweetheart overbust corset. 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 (A cup through D cup) and adjustable hip ties, so there are 3 points to tweak so you get a highly personalized fit – more so than any other OTR overbust on the market.
Because of the expandable side ties, they are fantastic for pear-shaped clients especially (if you have a large 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 designed for cup sizes A and small B. The top edge is ~6 inches larger than the waist.
Bust size Medium is designed for cup sizes large B and C. The top edge is ~7 inches larger than the waist.
Bust size Large is designed for cup sizes D and small DD. The top edge is ~8 inches larger than the 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 31″ 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 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 18 spiral steel bones and 6 flat steel bones, plus a front fastening busk and back grommets/ laces.

Returns and Exchanges:
Timeless Trends (and Lucy as an extension) are proud to offer the longest known return window within the corset industry.
You have a full 45 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 45 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.
