The Scarlet Red and Black Lace longline classic silhouette corset goes great with Gothic, Renaissance, Pirate, and Steampunk costuming as well as everyday wear. Wear with a chemise, long skirt, and pixie skirt for a Renaissance faire outfit; layer over a dress for a Medieval or Fantasy look; wear with a shirt and layered pixie skirts for a Pirate style; or wear with a high-collared shirt and bustle skirt for a Steampunk look!
This corset is comfortable and supportive, with 20 flexible spiral steel bones, a steel busk with two steel bars for extra front support, and four steel bars to support the back grommets. The gentle longline underbust corsets fit more closely along the ribcage and underbust than other styles, making these an excellent choice for people with narrow ribcages and classic “pear shaped” body types. Constructed with three layers of fabric: two inner layers of cotton, waist tape, and the polyester outer layer which is laminated to the middle layer of cotton. There are four garter loops (no straps included) attached at the bottom inner seam.
Dimensions in Inches:
Center front: 13″ – 13 1/2″ with 12″ busk
Side length: 11″ at slit
Center back: 14″ – 15″
Underbust to hip: 11″ – 12″
The classic longline style has a 4″ rib spring and 7″ hip spring, with hip lacing to adjust for more hip room. (This is the difference between the circumference of the ribcage or the hip measurement compared to the waist measurement of the corset when fully closed.) Our steel-boned corsets are intended to be worn with a one inch gap or more between the laces after cinching.
