Teeny corsets for petite or advanced tightlacers

Many OTR corset brands carry waist sizes that start from 18-20 inches, but what if you need a corset smaller than that? There are women with very small frames, they may be very petite (less than 5 feet tall) or they may be naturally very slim. Other passionate tightlacers may be ready to delve into the world of the smaller-than-18-inch waist. The following corsetieres and businesses are experienced in making teeny corsets for those too petite to wear ready-made corsets.

Corsetieres, if you have made a corset with a closed waist of less than 18″ and have photos, you’re welcome to submit them to be added to the gallery. Safe-for-work photos are preferred! Please email me here. Thank you!

  1. I really appreciate this!!! I’m naturally very small and skinny (5’2 and 90lbs) with a natural 21 in waist is almost impossible to find something that’s small enough that also cinches.

  2. Thank you for this! I’m 4’9″, and last year realized that I should have been wearing much shorter corsets all along, which means I can go smaller! I had been buying 20″ (the smallest I could find) for years, and now I know where to shop!

    1. Hi Caroline, thanks for your comment! I’m so glad this helped. :)

  3. Well, there are some very interesting designs offered here. As a wasp waist lover from way back, my motto has always been “The smaller, the better!”. WWL

  4. Thanks to your galleries, I own three custom 17″ corsets by now:)) Really enjoy my training leather Puimond underbust and two SnowBlack underbusts, one mesh and one rosebud coutil. I will definitely order more from them, and Bizarre Design is also on my wish list)) These galleries are so tempting!

    1. Hi Alissa, would you be willing to share a photo of you in your SnowBlack corset to add to this gallery of teeny corsets? Your photos are so lovely, but I will only share one with your permission. :)

      1. Dear Lucy,
        Surely, I’d be honoured! Please feel free to share any of my photos :) These beautiful corsets deserve to be seen)

  5. I really appreciate how you consider everyone’s different needs for corsets.

    1. Thank you Tamar! I try to cover all the factors here, and it’s great when someone appreciates the work I put into this site. :)

  6. I’ll get you pictures when my client gets hers :)
