Black Satin underbust corset in the hourglass silhouette. A smart and classic choice that goes with any outfit! Understated and elegant, this fabric creates less friction so won’t cause your shirt to ride up if you wear it under your clothes.
Compare the hourglass version of this corset with its original slim pattern and see the difference!
The standard length corset is suitable for someone with an average torso length, and a relatively balanced figure who carries their weight equally on top and bottom. These corsets have a more hourglass silhouette, so it will nip in your waist and provide a more dramatic curve compared to the ‘slim silhouette’ corsets. This corset is also a good choice for those who have trained their waist and are able to fully close their previous Timeless Trends corset!
This corset is Black Iris label, and is made to the same specifications as Timeless Trends.

Measurements (IMPORTANT – THE HOURGLASS CORSETS ARE DIFFERENT FROM THE SLIM CORSETS!):
The standard length underbust corsets generally accommodate ribcage ~6.5 inches larger than the waist, and hips ~10 inches larger than the waist. For instance, a size 24″ corset would fit someone with a ribcage circumference of 30.5″ and high hip of 34″. 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 standard length underbust corsets are approximately:
11.5 inches long in the center front.
9.5 inches long at the princess seam.
9 inches long at the side seam.
12.5 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 a smooth black satin. Wearing this corset under clothing will not cause your shirt to crawl up your corset, but instead allows your shirt or dress to glide beautifully overtop. 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. Hourglass silhouette corsets have a modesty placket by the busk, and 6 garter tabs instead of 4. A back modesty panel is not included, but we do have separate, boned modesty panels for separate purchase.
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.
