Corset Brands by Price Range

Shop corsets by budget!

On Youtube, I have several corset review playlists which are organized in chronological order because that seems to make the most sense – my reviews aren’t all equal; they’ve evolved over time and they’re easier to understand if you watch the oldest ones first.

But when people are looking for a corset within their budget, I understand that my reviews can be difficult to sift through. So I’m saving you time by organizing all the corset brands I’ve tried in order of the average price range of their underbust corsets, and then alphabetical order within that range. (You should expect overbust corsets to cost more than underbusts.)

Where it’s written (standard underbusts) – this implies that custom measured, special fabrics, and other options may require price markups that put the corset over and above that price range. When looking at corsets by budget only, it’s important to realize that by and large, you get what you pay for. 

Don’t see what you’re looking for? It means I have not tried or reviewed the corset yet.

Please note that the order of these do not represent my preferences in any way – if you need help deciding, check out the other resources in my Corset Shopping Guide, or try my corset consultation service.

All prices have been converted to USD.


Under $100


$100 – $200


$200 – $300


$300 – $400


$400 and up / budget should not be a factor:

I may add to this list as time goes on. :)

  1. Hi lucy, i’ve seen many of ur videos and orchard corsetry website and user review videos. By doing my little research i figured that cs411 should be good for me as a starter ad than later i think i’ll buy another cs-426 short as i really want a curvy figure. I’ve used latex waist belts before but as u know they work less and temporary.
    my torso is almost 12 and waist 29.6, hip 37.3 and underbust 28.5, and i’m also very squishy in the middle. Do u think i made the right decision to go fr cs411 nw and 426 short later.

    1. Hi Rokeya, you have a large natural hip spring so you may find that you need the version with hip ties in order to cinch your waist without compressing or pinching your hips. Because you have a longer torso length, you may also find that the longline corsets cover your tummy appropriately and prevent the flesh from spilling out from the top or bottom edges of the corset.

  2. Hi there! What a lovely website!!! I was wondering your opinion of Heavy Red corsets? I find them beautiful and many say “suitable for waist training”. But, I would very much like your take! Thank you! :)

    1. Hi Kaleigh, I haven’t personally tried any corsets from Heavy Red, but I hope to review them in the future. :)

  3. Hi lucy i was wondering if you have ever tried corsets from CORSETS STORY? i was recently looking on their website and they have really nice one ,but i want to get a personal opinion on them before i buy one…thanks id really appreciate it

    1. Hi Sofia, yes I have tried their corsets, but there are several stores or brands who stock the same corsets from the same manufacturer or designer, including Corset Wholesale, CorsetDeal, Corsets-UK etc. So when searching through my reviews on Youtube, not all of them will say Corset Story.

      1. Okay thank you for replying…I also have another question iam just starting out with corsets and waist training..if there a specific type or brand or corset that would be good to begin with?? Iam curvier and have a tummy from having a baby also…my torso is about 12 inches long could u help me :-)

  4. Ahh I see! Good. I’m curious to see what you have to say.

  5. But you’ve never tried one of her ready made off the rack ones? You’re having a custom/to your measurements one made?

    1. It is going to be one of her standard-sized pieces, but she’s making it to my fabric specifications.

  6. I’m just curious if you’ve ever done a review of a Ties That Bynde corset? I would love to see one of one of their premade off the rack corsets if you haven’t already done one.
    Thank you!

    1. I’m commissioning a corset from her right now, actually! It should be done in a month or so. :)

  7. Hi if I send you my measurements can you reccomend corsets?

    1. Hi Nina, certainly I can help you find a suitable corset! My consultation page is up, have a read through and see if it’s suitable for you.

  8. I gained weight as well as lost my figure during my pregnancy and so I don’t know if i can go for the measurements i remember being taken 3 years ago. Is that okay? do i need to take more and then subract what i can squeeze into now?
    Also i don’t know if the underbust or overbust is better for a beginner, because i like the smooth look of the overbust far more. Is it bad for breast tissue at all?
    thanks!!

    1. Hi Brocha, it’s better to take your current measurements, especially concerning your hips because pregnancy can cause your pelvic bones to widen and this is pretty much irreversible. If you end up getting a corset that’s too small in the hips, it could cause hip pain or numbness which isn’t good.
      I have a video on overbust corset pros and cons here. If the corset is well fitted, it’s as safe for your breasts as a regular bra because it won’t be crushing the tissue at all. Your bust should just be supported and only your waist should be compressed in a corset.

  9. Thank you Lucy. I do like the softer curves like with Honey Rose, [she is a Nut, so adorable!] and I am still a size 14, so I need more time before getting too serious about tight lacing and wearing all day~ everyday.

    I checked out Fran’s site and videos, I was shocked to see her starting price for a corset is $500 and most are more expense, like $675. That is insane to me, at my beginner level, and with my body continually changing as I lose weight. I could see $250, but $500, geesh, makes me want to learn to do it myself. ;o)

    I did order from Orchard Corset yesterday and am awaiting my order. I did mention that I learned of them through your videos. Do you know of anyone, anywhere else, besides Fran who makes this type of mesh, steel boned, zippered corset? Or something close to it?

    Thanks again of the replies, I know you are busy. You have been a great asset in my search for a great corset.

    1. Hi Veronica,
      Contour is the only brand I know of that creates anything close to these heavy-duty mesh corsets with zippers. There are other corsetieres that make mesh corsets, but not suitable for daily waist training like the Contour ones are because the mesh is a different material entirely. Fran and I are collaborating on the new Gold Line of corsets coming soon to my website, which will be slightly more affordable than her typical fully-custom line. More information about that will be revealed in September. If you have further questions, could you please direct them to my email (bishonenrancher(at) gmail [dot] com)? I try as best as possible to keep the comments section of my webpage applicable to the page content.

  10. Hey there, Lucy!

    I actually want a specific corset I saw in another video. Honey, who is doing the video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vvjRv0NeBQ, had hers custom done at Contour Corsets, so I will be checking them out.I am curious to know your thoughts, if you have already done a video review for them. I just really love your videos and have begun to embrace my inner cortisanne. Please have a fantastic evening!

    Warmest wishes,

    Veroncia

    1. Hi Veronica,
      Yes, I have reviewed a Contour Corset before. Here’s the link to my review – bear in mind that many people don’t like the silhouette or reduction that I chose, but I chose this to prove how impressive this corsetiere’s skills are. Fran is capable of making many different types of corsets, including one with gentler curves like you see in Honey Rose’s video: https://lucycorsetry.com/2013/06/03/contour-corsets-review-summer-mesh-underbust/
