victorian style corsets & cinches

Underbust sytles, overbust styles

Underbust Styles

There are 3 types of underbust styles.

  • An underbust corset is an actual corset that sits under the bustline and is suitable for waist training. Full corset styling & waist reduction but no coverage over the breasts.
    • A variation on the underbust corset that has hip gores to provide a large curve between the hip and waist area. Good for ladies with larger hips and a smaller natural waist.

Base pricing for corsets is on the Price List page.

  • A waist cinche style that will provide 2-3 inches of reduction on most women but will not do any figure shaping and is shorter in length across the tummy. Good if you would like something to wear over clothing & if your goal is limited to tummy trimming.

Note these can be closed via a busk or a zipper closure.


  • A ribbon corset provides a slim look and a slight amount of waist control. Its delicate construction does not allow for the pressure needed for waist reduction. Think of these more as a belt.
