Marie Antoinette Cameo Corset in Solid Black or Stripe Fabrics
This lace trimmed corset is a Louise Black original, and was conceived of in 2006. It is constructed from 7 panels of thick cotton twill canvas and is reinforced with an additional layer of canvas for even more cinching power. You can choose from solid black fabric or the stripe and rococo print fabric way. It is lined in a comfortable, decorative canvas fabric. The edges and seams are encased in bias tape & lace. This sturdy, under-bust style and will pull in your waist to give your mid-section a waspy, hour glass appearance.
There is steel boning throughout (with 1/2" and 1/4" steel along the side seams, back, & front). It laces up through double sided black grommets and has a cameo image surrounded by more lace and hand pleated ribbon. The front is approx. 12" tall and the back is 11.5-12" tall. The sides are approx. 10" tall. If you require a taller or shorter corset, or have special shape requirements, please let me know.
At this time, orders placed now will post in 2-3 weeks.
*This is a custom-sewn corset made to your measurements (see diagram). I will need 4 measurements in order to complete your corset. Please email those to us separately after you place your order.
1.) how tall are you? 2.) your underbust measurement 3.) your natural waist measurement 4.) your upper hip measurement.
For the last 3 measurements, measure around your torso at the points which correspond to the lines on the diagram ( the last image). You can give me measurements in inches or centimeters. Please ask if you have any questions about how to take your measurements.
When deciding which size is right for you, it's best to go 3-5" smaller than your natural waist. 2-3" smaller will allow you to almost fully close the corset and 4-5" will leave a small gap in the back to show off the lacing. Please take into consideration that bulky clothing will add 1/2"-1" to your measurements. Please email if you have any questions about sizing.
