Create a beautiful silhouette with our underbust corset. Keep it under wraps or wear it as an accent piece. These cinchers are steel-boned and backed with coutil; a specialty corsetry fabric. They are appropriate for light waist reduction.
Made of the finest Italian textiles, woven in the Lake Como region, and designed, cut and sewn in our Chicago workshop. Our waspie features an exclusive print of tropical botanicals made of silk/cotton satin, designed by Esther Garcia of Butterfat Studios for Department of Curiosities and printed in Italy.
Our corsets are made to order following a slow fashion model. This means that each piece is made with the utmost care and attention; each piece is placed and cut individually, meaning every corset is slightly different.
Corset sizing: The waist measurement of the corset should be 4-6 inches smaller than your natural waist, as measured one inch above your belly button, thus allowing for 2-3 inches of waist reduction and a 1-3 inch back gap. For example, a person who measures 27" around the waist should purchase a corset that measures 22" at the waist, e.g. a size 22. Made-to-measure sizing is also available at for an additional cost. Please contact us if you have any questions about our corsets.
