Black floral brocade hourglass cincher – this is the perfect “basic black” cincher option for those who don’t wear cashmere or might be sensitive to wool! For our more petite customers (or those who simply want a shorter corset to use as a fashionable belt over clothing), this is a short corset, only 6.5 inches high on the side! You never have to worry about this baby lifting up your bust unnaturally or digging into your lap.
This corset is Timeless Trends label, and is made to the same specifications as Timeless Trends.
|Corset Size||Ribcage (inches)|
(Measured 3 inches
up from waistline)
|Waist (inches)||Upper hip (inches)
(Measured 2 inches
down from waistline)
The Timeless Trends waist cinchers generally accommodate ribcage ~4.5 inches larger than the waist, and hips ~7 inches larger than the waist. For instance, a size 24″ corset would fit someone with a ribcage circumference of 28″ and high hip of 31″. However, as a mass-produced garment there is a natural variation in these corsets so the proportions may not be exact in every corset. We do aim for every corset to measure within 0.5 inch precision.
Lengthwise, the waist cinchers are approximately:
8.25 inches long in the center front.
7 inches long at the princess seam.
6.5 inches long at the side seam.
9.5 inches long at the center back.
It is generally advised that corsets are ordered approximately 4-6 inches (10-15cm) 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-on-black large floral brocade, alternating with smooth black satin insert panels. For those who don’t like the cashmere or cannot wear it for allergy reasons, this black floral underbust is favorite for those who wish to waist train (as long as measurements are compatible). 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 standard underbust corsets contain 20 spiral steel bones and 6 flat steel bones, plus a front fastening busk and back grommets/ laces.
This corset also features 6 garter tabs, and a matching modesty placket under the busk. A back modesty panel is not included, but we do have separate, boned modesty panels for separate purchase.
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 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.
