NEW in 2020, we are now pleased to take special orders of the hourglass overbust corset in any currently available colorway!

HOURGLASS Overbust Corset Size Chart

Corset Size
(waist in inches)
Hip (inches)
(Measured 5 inches
down from waistline)
SMALL BUST (inches)
(expandable by about 4 additional inches)
MEDIUM BUST (inches)
(expandable by about 4 additional inches)
LARGE BUST (inches)
(expandable by about 4 additional inches)


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!

For instance, a size 24M overbust corset would fit someone with a full bust circumference of 33″ and a low hip of 35″. 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:

15.5 inches long in the center front.

16 inches long at the princess seam.

13 inches long at the side seam.

15.5 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 your choice!

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 20 spiral steel bones and 4 flat steel bones, plus a front fastening busk and back grommets/ laces.

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.

    I ordered a 30″ large bust model in ‘traditional blues’ on Sunday February 20th, and it was delivered ready to wear today, the 28th. I did take the time to consult Lucy about my measurements before ordering.

    I have an uncommon size, exceptionally large bust for my frame and have really struggled over many years to find functional, comfortable support wear (bras, etc) with little success. This corset is the first such piece of clothing I’ve ever truly fitted, without being between sizes or having awkward loose then tight spots. The weight of my chest is now distributed over my torso, not resting on a few tired muscles. I can comfortably breathe with my full belly and diaphragm, everything feels comfortable and supportive. I feel really good about the shape it gives me, and it’s shifting some deep tension out of my mid and lower back.

    It feels so comfortable and supportive and sturdy that it’s almost surprising to sew how pretty the pattern is and how nice the piece truly looks. I was questing for a functional piece of supportive clothing made with modern design, and I’m so pleased to have found this. There’s absolutely no costume-y feel, simply quality clothing or a fitted vest. Good buy for the money and no unnecessary frills.

    Excellent quality and excellent customer service!
    I ordered a 28/small in pink heron brocade, and when I received it, it was perfect except that it was bizarrely missing the boning in the right side. Lucy was wonderful and kind and helped me exchange it for an entirely new one, which arrived incredibly fast, and I have to say the whole experience was the best of such that I’ve ever had. The corset is sturdy and comfortable, looks delicate and beautiful, and is thoroughly wonderful! I intend to get another in the future as soon as I can.
    Thank you, Lucy!

    Last September I had MANY questions and special requests for Lucy on my order of my very first overbust corset. She was incredibly sweet and patient with me. I was able to get the exact fabric I wanted even though it was the last of it and Lucy had to contact the warehouse to secure the fabric for me. Without her patience and kindness, I wouldn’t have been able to get the fabric I wanted and I most likely would have ordered the wrong size as well! Everything I know about corsets I learned from Lucy. Buying directly from her is a great way to thank her for all her incredible contributions to the tightlacing community.

    Oh, and this is supposed to be a review of the CORSET, ha! It’s even more gorgeous than I expected, and I had high expectations. Timeless Trends corsets are very well-made and have lifetime guarantees. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

  4. Nadia Reigna Silver

    I ordered a reg, overbust, size 38, in royal purple, 100% cotton, hourglass silhouette on Sept 20².

    Lucy’s the ABSOLUTE best, patient and knowledgeable corsetier I have ever met! When idkw I wanted, she was able to handily yet daringly arrive me to my destination. She also helped me understand that I may have a better time with a longline, but there were no [aforementioned] corsets in that style at the time, so I went with what was.

    I asked if she was taking custom commissions [no], but she referred me to a good friend & trusted corsetier – Lovely Rats Corsetry. So far, all’s well!

    100/10 would highly recommend.

  5. Lisa Klonikowski

    Sized perfectly! I ordered this after communicating with Lucy a few emails, we developed an overbust that I absolutely love. She let me know that the length of the overbust would require a busk, and suggested a bust size that works perfectly! My bust fills the space but can still close the laces.
    I wear my overbust a ton – way more than any OTR options I’ve seen, but when taking this option, the one huge suggestion would be to have a conversation with Lucy & your measurements, as there’s more margin for error with this than an underbust!
    Will be ordering more in the future as I see colourways pop-up that can double as tops in my aesthetic!
