Purple Iridescent underbust corset (longline). This is the longline version of the similar Iridescent Purple standard length underbust. A gorgeous warm pinky-violet is shot with cooler deep blue tones, for a magical two-tone effect.
The longline corset is suitable for those who have a longer torso (a seated torso length of 11 inches or longer from under the breast to the top of the lap). Because of the expandable side hip ties, they are fantastic for pear-shaped clients especially (if you have a large natural hip spring). They are most suitable for plus size or full-figure corset enthusiasts as well. If your ribcage measures the same as (or smaller than) your natural waist, then the top edge of this corset will not flare away from your body and the corset is less likely to ride up on your torso compared to other brands. The low edge of this corset also does well to pull in any protruding lower tummy.
This corset is Black Iris label, and is made to the same specifications as all other Timeless Trends corsets.

The SLIM SILHOUETTE longline underbust corsets generally accommodate a ribcage ~4 inches larger than the waist, and hips ranging from 8-16 inches larger than the waist, due to adjustable side hip ties. For instance, a size 24″ corset would fit someone with a ribcage circumference of 28″ and hip of 32″ all the way up to 40″. 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:
13 inches long in the center front.
11.5 inches long at the princess seam.
11 inches long at the side seam.
14 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 core layers of cotton twill, and a fashion fabric of shocking “ultraviolet”, pinky-purple hues. The color changes as you move and turn, making this a beautiful statement piece on the outside of your clothing – although if you were to wear it underneath your clothes, the sleek satin will not cause friction.
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.
This corset does not include a modesty panel, but stiffened, floating modesty panels are available for separate purchase.
