Introducing “Lara”, a curvaceous black cotton underbust corset! This piece is a lovely alternative for those who would like a corset in a standard length, but would like a bit more of a straighter rib, and slightly more hip coverage compared to our other hourglass standard corsets.
Waspies or cinchers are corsets suitable for those who have a short torso (a seated torso length of less than 9 inches from under the breast to the top of the lap). They provide the most mobility and they won’t push up your bust, or dig into your lap when you sit down!
This corset is Glamorous Corset label, and is made to the same specifications as Glamorous Corsets.
Measurements (IMPORTANT – THESE HOURGLASS CORSETS HAVE DIFFERENT MEASUREMENTS COMPARED TO THE SLIM LONGLINE CORSETS!):
The longline underbust corsets generally accommodate ribcage ~7 inches larger than the waist, and upper hip 10 inches bigger than the waist. For instance, a size 24″ corset would fit someone with a ribcage circumference of 31″ and upper hip of 34″. As a mass-produced garment there is a natural variation in these corsets so the proportions may not be exact in every corset, although we aim for less than 0.5 inch variation.
Lengthwise, the longline underbust corsets are approximately:
12.5 inches long in the center front.
9.5 inches long at the princess seam.
10.5 inches long at the side seam.
12.5 inches long at the center back.
It is generally advised that corsets are ordered approximately 4-6 inches (10-15 cm) 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 layers of cotton twill which is hardy, matte, abrasion-resistant and fade-resistant, with an interlining in between. As a natural fiber it will breathe better than polyester-based fabrics, and is a 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 Glamorous Jolie corsets contain 20 spiral steel bones and 4 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. An unstiffened back modesty panel is included, but we do also have boned floating modesty panels for separate purchase.
