Black Cashmere underbust corset (standard length). This men’s corset is jet-black and gives a smooth line over and under clothing. The cut of this men’s corset is slightly less curvy than a women’s standard corset, as it’s designed to accommodate a larger ribcage, narrower hips and flatten the abdomen rather than create an hourglass silhouette.
This corset is Timeless Trends label, and is made to the same specifications as Timeless Trends.
This corset contains two core layers of cotton twill, and a fashion fabric of a cashmere twill which is hardy, matte, abrasion-resistant and fade-resistant. 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).
Those who are allergic to wool may want to avoid this corset and opt for a black cotton version instead; please inquire for availability.
All standard underbust corsets contain 20 spiral steel bones and 6 flat steel bones, plus a front fastening busk and back grommets/ laces.
The standard length underbust corsets generally accommodate ribcage ~4 inches larger than the waist, and hips 4-5 inches larger than the waist. For instance, a size 30″ corset would fit someone with a ribcage circumference of 34″ and high 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 standard length underbust corsets are approximately:
12 inches long in the center front.
10.5 inches long at the princess seam.
10.5 inches long at the side seam.
13.5 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).
Returns and Exchanges:
Timeless Trends (and Lucy as an extension) are proud to offer the longest known return window within the corset industry.
You have a full 45 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 45 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.
