OVERBUST VICTORIAN CORSET (CIVIL WAR-INSPIRED PUSH UP STYLE)

This is perhaps the corset style most familiar from the movies, specifically the famous 1939 movie "Gone With the Wind" and "Ms. Scarlett O'Hara." It's a sexy "push up" style inspired by those available during our Civil War period (mid to late 1800s), one that slightly elevates the bosom -- perchance all the better with heaving sighs through trembling lips to encourage a gallant rescue?

The style is preferred for outerwear over skirts and gowns, and may or may not be suitable as foundation wear. That is because of the "push up" factor. For those seeking to be very safe ordering an overbust style for foundation wear, we suggest our Valentine Victorian from any corsetmaker in our Elegant Line Custom Corsets (this style follows and contours over the natural bosom shape with no "push up" factor).

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, in the center front has a gentle dip between the breasts, and descends sufficiently low to cover the tummy with the bottom shape most preferred for excellent tummy control, that is, gently rounded. Under the arms from the waist down, the corset is approximately 4". The back top edge will stop slightly above the bra height while the center bottom half from waist down is about 5". 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.
