Marigold waspie

£ 179 GBP

The Marigold waspie just begs to be worn for your pastoral Marie Antoinette fantasy. While you can easily pair it with a lingerie set, you might also wear it atop a cotton sundress to add some extra curves!

It features an exquisite Italian silk brocade, with rococo trimmings for those "let them eat cake" vibes. Who would believe that a corset could change your shape so much and still feel so comfortable?

Dry clean only. Made in England. Models wear sizes S, XS, and S respectively.

See "More Information" below for size recommendations and to learn about our construction methods, including our use of steel boning, sturdy English coutil, and reinforced grommets.

    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, visit our blog post on 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 style corset and pair it with a bra.

      Additional notes:

      • Bra size: Our bralettes are best suited to a B or C cup size, although many customers who wear A or D cups are also happy with the fit. If you wear a larger cup size than a D, you may be prefer our custom size options - contact us for details. 
      • Corset size: This is the actual measurement of the garment at the waist- your waist should be several inches larger. For more information, see our blog post on corset fitting.
      • *Sizes XL and XXL are currently available in limited styles whilst we work on a size expansion. View our current selections here: XL and XXL

      • If you fall in between sizes, we recommend selecting the larger size (except for silk ruffle panties, which have adjustable ties), especially for lounge wear. You'll want a bit of wearing ease for movement.
