Our standard and most popular shapes, details, and
measurements unless you specify differently
below are: the corset typically rises on the sidefront
to just over the bosom and in the center front has a low,
between the breasts. It descends sufficiently low to
cover the tummy with the noted V-bottom shape.
Under the arms from the waist down, the
corset is approximately 2." The back top edge is high and will stop above the bra height while the
center bottom half from waist down is about 4". Because
of the straight-rib silhouette, the maximum
waist reduction possible in this corset is 4." Binding
will be in the same color as your corset fabric. You need submit only the
requested measurements below. Please start by tying a
ribbon around your waist to anchor the vertical measurements
you will take. When in doubt, take the measurement
three times and choose the average. The maximum
advisable waist reduction for this straight-rib
corset is 4". View Classic Line Fabrics available.
