The Gemini corsets accommodate ribcage ~8 inches larger than the waist, upper hips ~14 inches larger than the waist and lower hips 16 inches larger than the waist. For instance, a size 24″ corset would fit someone with a ribcage circumference of 32″, a high hip of 36″ and a low hip of 40″. 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 Gemini corsets are approximately:

11 inches long in the center front.

9.5 inches long at the princess seam.

11 inches long at the side seam.

13.5 inches long at the center back.

 

About the Gemini Corset:

TWO SILHOUETTES TO CHOOSE FROM:

The Gemini corset is offered in two silhouettes: Conical rib and Round rib!

The Conical rib is cut straight from the underbust to waist, and will give you a tapered look with more compression on the floating ribs. This is recommended more for experienced corset wearers and those with a naturally smaller or flexible ribcage.

Both silhouettes are identical from the waist to hips; only the ribcage is affected.

CURVE:

The Gemini corset is designed for experienced corset wearers or those with naturally curvy figures. It is one step curvier than the hourglass corset: where the hourglass has a 6.5″ rib spring, the Gemini will have an 8″ rib spring. Where the hourglass has a 10″ high hip spring, the Gemini has a 14″ high hip spring. A customer who can fit the hourglass corset in size 26″ should be able to comfortably fit the Gemini in size 24″.

 

A LONGLINE LOOK – WITHOUT THE LENGTH:

The Gemini has the look of a longline corset, so it extends down over the hips on the side and accommodates a 16″ low hip spring. The longline corset is aesthetically preferred among some corset wearers, including myself! The extra smoothing and support over the hip area provides a beautiful silhouette, and in many cases the corset snuggles better under the waistband of slacks and skirts compared to corsets cut high over the hips. However, you don’t have to be long-waisted to wear the Gemini, because it’s same length as the regular hourglass in the front and along the princess seam! It will fit anyone with a waist length of 9 inches or more. It will fit like a comfortable longline corset for a petite or short-waisted person.

 

EXTRA BONES FOR SUPPORT:

In sizes 22 and larger, the Gemini corset has extra spiral steel bones in the center of some panels (26 spirals and 6 flat steels for a total of 32 bones) to provide extra vertical tension to the corset, preventing wrinkling or buckling of the fabric and ensuring it stays smooth on the body. The spiral steels are still the high quality, flexible, comfortable bones you’ve come to know from Timeless Trends.

 

HIGHER BACK TO HOLD THE “MUFFIN”:

You spoke and we listened! The Gemini corset has a slightly higher back compared to the hourglass corsets, to help hold in the “muffin top” or skin roll-over.

 

Contents:

This corset contains two core layers of cotton twill, and a variable fashion fabric. The fashion fabric is always fused to the interlining for strength and durability.

All Gemini corsets in waist size 22″ and above contain a total of 32 steel bones (26 spiral and 6 flat), plus a front fastening busk and back grommets/ laces. Gemini corsets sized 20″ and below will have 26 steel bones (20 spiral and 6 flat), 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. We recommend the LONG modesty panel to match the higher back of the Gemini!

 

Returns and Exchanges:

This corset is Final Sale – the corset will not be accepted for exchange or 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.

    The special order process was super seamless and easy. Lucy took care of everything and always kept me updated with the status of my order. She even sent me helpful wear and care info! The corset itself is very well-made, sturdy, and medium weight. The construction seems solid and it is definitely true to size. If your measurements are right for a Gemini, I highly recommend you get one!

    Incredible corset. I’ve been recommending to all my friends & family. Lucy’s sizing calculator helped me pick the perfect fit for me and I’m so thankful!
    I have scoliosis and suffered from sciatica almost every day, but since wearing my gemini I have had no pain, have lost inches on my waist & my posture has improved immensely.
    Thank you Lucy for this beautiful corset & amazing customer service !

    I absolutely love the Dragon Master colorway! I haven’t been able to wear mine because the measurements were slightly off & I ended up losing weight soon after as well but it really is gorgeous & well made. The Gemini’s are amazing & I highly suggest them. 😊
