Earlier this week we focused on plus size/ full figured corsets, for those who need a size larger than what most OTR companies have to offer. However, a portion of the population have the opposite issue: they’re too small to fit into most OTR corsets. There are adult women who exist with natural 20” waists, and they want to create curves using corsetry.
The following gallery showcases several corsetieres who have experience making corsets for the teeniest of waists.

You know who looks good in a corset? Everyone, that’s who.
Wearing a well-made cupped overbust under clothing looks like you’re wearing a bra combined with a cinched waist. They work very well under strapless dresses, and in particular vintage shelf-bust dresses.
Those who are particularly heavy-busted may find that a cupped overbust takes considerable pressure off the neck, shoulders and upper back by supporting the bust properly from below and eliminating the need for shoulder straps. Read more about where to get cupped overbusts here.

Look it’s my custom
You guys, whoever said corsets made women delicate frail wilting flowers obviously never got their hands on one of these. I feel like I’m armored up and ready to lead some Valkyries off into the sunset holy shit.

Sorry about the 2nd slanted photo but here’s me cs-301. Gives quite a curve, this is a size 18.
The Clair de Lune corset from Angela Friedman’s Palais Collection. Available for purchase here.
The Clair de Lune overbust corset features black and blush pink silk, delicate French leavers lace overlays, and dramatic seams and shaping to show off those curves! It’s made in silk with an understructure of English coutil and a twill waist tape. The busk closure at the front allows for easy dressing and undressing without assistance, and it features an underbusk flap to protect your skin from pinching. The back grommets are triple reinforced and there is a built-in modesty placket under the laces to protect your back from chafing under the lacing strings. The corset also includes 6 detachable garters.
Perfect as an 8.5” x 11” print out, this diagram is intended for the corset lover looking to learn how to lace themselves up independently. Practice makes perfect, and a visual aid makes practice much easier.
Please don’t hesitate to share this with anyone you think might be interested, but don’t forget to keep the credit intact!
Cs-426 in a size 18.
Photo 1 is of me in Scarlet’s 16” corset. She laced me down to about 18”. The second one is the 18” red cotton 411 I bought from her. She laced me down to about 22”, then the hips wouldn’t allow me to go any further. Gores are being added and I am excited!
