Isabel corset

£ 487 GBP

The Isabel overbust corset has the classic silhouette and ballet-inspired elegance that you've been looking for. It's made in luxurious, imported brocade and 100% silk satin in almond pink, with a plunging neckline for dramatic décolletage. Flecks of shimmering gold are scattered throughout the brocade, giving this corset a feeling of utter decadence.

Who would believe a corset could change your shape so much and still feel so comfortable? These corsets are handmade in 100% silk and Italian brocade with an English coutil lining and real, steel boning.

Dry clean only. Made in England. Models wear size M. See "More Information" below for sizing advice and to learn about our construction methods.

How do I put on a corset if I don't have someone to help me? Watch our quick Youtube videos: Putting on an overbust corset yourself, or putting on a waist cincher yourself.

All of our corsets are handmade with these high-quality features:

  • Real steel boning (18 to 30 pieces, depending on style.)
  • English coutil lining and a waist tape, guaranteed not to stretch.
  • A metal busk closure at the front, allowing for easy dressing, and featuring an under-busk flap to protect your skin.*
  • Reinforced metal grommets at the back, with built-in modesty placket to prevent chafing.*
  • Long lacing strings to give you size flexibility, and for easy dressing.
  • Hand-cut silk or grosgrain ribbon binding for a durable edge finish.
  • Dramatic shaping throughout the waist and high hip. These are much curvier than the bustiers at your local department store!
*Excepting waspie corsets, which do not have busks or plackets. All other corsets, including all overbust and underbust styles do have these features.

    The waist measurements listed are the actual corset size at the waist, not your waist measurement. Our corsets should be up to 4" smaller than your natural waist for beginners or up to 6" smaller for more experienced corset wearers. All corsets should be worn with a 1-2" gap at the back.

    For examples and detailed measurement instructions, learn how to choose your corset size.

    Our overbust style corsets are best suited for a B or C cup size. (D cups will generally fit as well, but you'll get an extra push-up effect.) For larger cup sizes, you may want to choose an underbust corset and pair it with a bra.
