Description

This curvy underbust is made from two layers of fine-weave corsetry mesh, with a thinner more flexible  boning that molds to your body for that no line look.  In front there are rigid steel bones to help hold in the stomach and YKK zippers which are the best quality available. Designed to give no lines under clothing!

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 Timeless Trends label, and is made to the same specifications as Timeless Trends.

Measurements:

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.

 

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 layers of fine-weave poly corsetry mesh, with black satin trim and a YKK zipper which is the best quality available.

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.

    I bought this corset for stealthing under my clothes after a recommendation from Lucy based on my measurements and it’s great for this!
    My previous corsets are busks and have laces. I wasn’t sure how obvious a zipper would be but I don’t find it visible at all. I bought space laces at the same time as I bought the corset but actually kept the ribbons – I’ve never used ribbons on a corset before and was surprised by how sturdy they were.
    I use a corset liner or wear a thin vest underneath and I find It’ is very comfortable. It is sturdy but still flexible. For my needs this is a great corset.

    This is only my second corset, so I’m not an expert, but here’s what I like about this mesh corset: it’s breathable, and the heavy duty front zipper is easier to use than a busk. The lower contour dips down in front to flatten my lower tummy, while the waist nips me in despite my (very) short waist. The satin lacing ribbon is lovely and surprisingly sturdy. I didn’t give it 5 stars because the contour doesn’t quite work for me: even when I tighten it as much as possible at bottom and top, it still flares out, leaving a noticeable ridge at the bottom and enough room at the top for my aging small saggy boobs to slip down into the upper part of the corset. I think that’s not the fault of the corset; perhaps I need more instructions on lacing or on choosing a corset customized for my dimensions.
    That said, I’m pleased that the corset still fits well despite a 30 lb weight loss since I purchased it.

    This has become my go-to shapewear option. It is easy to put on and take off, sturdy, and the material breathes well. Other corsets I have tried have dug into my ribs uncomfortably after an hour or more, but I have found this corset to be comfortable for long periods of time, and I am able to move very easily and freely when wearing it; in fact, I am sure I could exercise in it very happily. I will be buying another in white!

    Ok so it’s important to me to seperate the main aspects of the corset.

    + THE DESIGN IS PERFECT. The corset sits well, shapes beautifully and does it’s job exactly as advertised! (after fixing the next few points).

    – The material is highly questionable. The mesh “fabric” has a terrible smell that won’t budge (even after a long long airing and a chemical cleaning.).
    – There were badly finished edges which are sharp as glass and will absolutely cut you.
    – The ribbon is so cheap that it gave my tanktop literal friction burns on the first lacing.
    – The pull tab of the zipper head is quite large and will show under clothing.

    I finished the faulty edges by hand, invested into 7m of satin ribbon and replaced the pull tab with a loop of 3mm satin ribbon – And I will wear the hell out of it! (As soon as I found a way to tame the aroma.)

    The concept is fabulous, but for that price the manufacturing needs some serious QA.

      Hi Nora, thanks for your honest review! Interestingly, my shop platform gave me the option of whether or not to publicize your review (presumably because low-star ratings hurt the health of the site) but I believe transparency is more important than SEO and you bring up some good points.

      • Firstly I’m so sorry about the rough edges! This 100% counts as a manufacturing error, and prior to any modifications/ alterations, if you had let me know about the unfinished edges, we’d replace your corset free of charge for this.
      • For anyone reading this and wondering about the differences between the No Line and the regular mesh corsets, it’s the same fabric, just a different construction process :). The factory smell is unfortunately one of the drawbacks of drop-shipping, as brick-and-mortar stores or warehouses can afford to purchase corsets bulk and allow them to off-gas for weeks before a big launch as opposed to clients getting a concentrated dose of that “new car” odor. The corset factory also got a big order of the mesh fabric in from our fabric supplier just before the No Line corset was launched, so the bolt hasn’t been given a lot of time to air out from the weaving process (evergreen fabrics like the cashmere which are stored for months usually have less of an issue here). I hope to one day be able to expand my business to the point where I can stock corsets in-studio so that shipping times are faster, I can air them out myself, and I’ll be able to do a personal QC on each piece. :)
      • I agree with you about the pull-tab for the front zip being on the bulky side. This was a point I brought up with the design team during their prototype process, when they were trying to decide between the metal or the heavy-duty molded plastic zip, and I expressed that the bulkiness of the zip is drawing away from the sleekness of the general design. They went forward with the plastic zip as it seems to glide better and have less of an issue with getting jammed compared to the metal zip, which is a decision I have to respect for the sake of what will hold up to the lifetime warranty over time. But replacing the bulky tab with a ribbon pull is a great idea for those willing and able to modify their pieces for personal preference and ease of use.

      Thanks again for this great discussion, Nora. I will also forward your notes to the design team and manufacturer and see whether any of your suggestions can be adopted into later versions of the design!
