Specially made by popular demand! The Minnie closed front cincher is a super lightweight, buskless option that’s designed to be as smooth as possible under clothing. A slick taffeta fashion fabric allows clothing to glide overtop, the lack of busk prevents any “bumps” under clothing down the front of the body, the relatively short side seam allows for reasonable mobility, and we tried to make the construction as lightweight as possible without affecting the strength.
We played it safe on the silhouette, creating a relatively smooth U-shape under clothing that would not scream “hey this is a corset!” but rather providing a moderate cinch to the waistline that creates a lovely nipped line under clothing.
This corset is True Corset label, under their “Playgirl” specifications which is their simplest and most budget-friendly line.
The Minnie cincher generally accommodates a ribcage ~6 inches larger than the waist, and hips ~8 inches larger than the waist. For instance, a size 24″ corset would fit someone with a ribcage circumference of 30″ and high hip of 32″, with a small parallel lacing gap in the back. 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:
10 inches long in the center front.
8.5 inches long at the princess seam.
7 inches long at the side seam.
10 inches long at the center back.
It is generally advised that corsets are ordered approximately 4 inches (10 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 a fashion fabric of smooth black taffeta, and a strength core layer of black cotton twill.
The Minnie cincher contains 6 spiral steel bones (single boned on the seams) and 6 flat steel bones (4 sandwiching the grommets and two in the center front of the closed front).
This corset does not come with a back modesty panel. However, boned floating modesty panels can be purchased separately (we recommend the cincher length!)
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.
