How to take correct measurements:

BODICE - Measures approx 12" from center front to point

BUST - Measure under the arms and around the fullest part of bust line.

(This is not bra size. This bodice needs to be worn tight so it doesn't fall off. Measure at the tightest measurement you want to wear it at. Note: since you will be wearing a lightweight top underneath, it does look ok if there is a gap between the laces)

WAIST - Measure at waist level ~ all the way around.

(You will have an elastic waistband under this from the skirt, and the top tucked in, so just measure it snug, not too tight or you won't be able to breathe)



CINCHER - Measures approx 10" from point to point, and 6" on sides and back

The cincher will sit at waist level. You would need to deduct approx 2" from your natural waist for proper size.

When measuring, please take into consideration that this is being worn over clothing. If you want the lacings to tie closed in the front adjust for that.



UNDER-BUST CORSET - Measures approx 12" center front to point, 11" on sides and back

*** When measuring for an under-bust corset, you will take your actual measurements and deduct 2-4" for a snug fit, the larger the deduction, the larger the gaps between the lacing! ***

UNDER-BUST- Measure under bust line

(This is not bra size. Note: since you will be wearing a lightweight top underneath, it does look ok if there is a gap between the lacing... Chemise tops are sold separately)

WAIST - Measure at actual waist ~ where you bend level ~ all the way around.

(You will have an elastic waistband under this from the skirt, and a top tucked in, so just measure it snug, not too tight or you won't be able to breathe)

HIPS - Your hip measurement will be approx 5-6" below your waist measurement.
