HOW TO ORDER - level 1

[Updated 3/25/14]

Please view other lovely styles on this page, on Sharon's Elegant Line page, on her Basic Line page.

****Style Advisory: Sturdy, well crafted, classic style in 8 panels, creating an ice-cream cone (rib-straightening) waistline silhouette in four fabric layers. Suitable for MTF clients who wish to visually narrow a broad rib cage. May create some rib movement if worn daily for a year or more. Full-figure clients may prefer the 12-panel Victorian corset for better figure contouring. This corset is an excellent value and suitable for serious waist training. (View additional images of this corset below.)****

  • "I wore my gold silk Bella for 21 hours continuously and it's exceedingly comfy! I even ate a small steak dinner with it cinched down five inches with no bad effects! I guess I am pretty well trained by now!" Leeann (7/12/08)
  • I received my lovely Bella corset! I started to panic at the end, unsure I had chosen well -- I suddenly wanted something more artsy, as I was afraid this would look utilitarian. I am taking a ceramics class right now and while I am making fancier cups and bowls, everything comes down to the most basic shapes. What is "perfect" is simple. I can appreciate fancy things, but beauty lies in the most basic elements. That is how I feel about this corset-- it is simple and non-fussy. I showed my husband James and he said the same thing as he examined it, 'It is perfect in how basic it is. It really shows off how well it was made.' I cannot tell you how worth it I think this will be for me and how happy I know I will be with it! Thank you for being to tactful with me in the end when I was doubting my original ideas!" Kellie (Alaska, 3/11/08)

This simple, elegant four-panel Victorian style was developed by senior corsetiere Sharon. She uses inner boning as standard (outer bone casings add a moderate upcharge), with a diagonal boning pattern in front which emphasizes and visually reduces the waistline, especially if you choose a darker fabric for the side panels.

We offer several unique options and design features to allow more fun in creating your own individual design. If you desire a design feature or embellishment that you don't see offered here, such as the detachable straps shown on the pink satin corset at the beginning of this page, please complete the section below, or send us email to specify what you desire. Prices quoted are based on a cotton corset with modest upcharges for other fabric options.

The maximum length underarm measurement from waist down to bottom of corset is 5"; anything over that will require you place an order not for the Bella Victorian, but for a six-panel longline Edwardian style from our Elegant Line of corsetry.

When measuring for corsetry, kindly consult our website measurement page and view a graphic and images of precisely how and where specific measurements should be taken. If you wish us to review your torso photos and evaluate measurements for correctness, we will invoice an additional $15.
