Our most popular fabric by far, the black cashmere fashion fabric featured here in our fabulous Gemini Silhouette is an excellent choice for shape wear, casual, classic, or more ensembles. Even curvier than the Hourglass cut, the Gemini cut is designed for those with naturally curvy figures or experienced corset wearers. Comes with 6 garter tabs. Garter straps sold separately.
Your high hip must be at least 10 inches greater than your waist to fit the Gemini Corset.
Where the Hourglass Long has side hip ties, the Gemini is closed on the hip, so those who are looking for a stealthy appearance under clothing will appreciate its smoothness, and those who have sensitive hips don't have to worry about any ribbon leaving imprints over the hip bones.
TWO SILHOUETTES TO CHOOSE FROM:
The Gemini Long corset is offered in two silhouettes: Conical (Straight) rib and Round (Cupped) rib!
The Round (Cupped) rib version is designed to cup over the ribcage and place compression around the waist, while leaving room for the ribs. This is appropriate for those who have larger or inflexible ribs.
The Conical (Straight) rib is cut straight from the underbust to waist, and will give you a tapered look with more compression on the floating ribs. This is recommended more for experienced corset wearers and those with a naturally smaller or flexible ribcage.
Both silhouettes are identical from the waist to hips; only the ribcage is affected.
The Gemini Long corset is designed for experienced corset wearers or those with naturally curvy figures. It is one step curvier than the hourglass corset: where the hourglass has a 6.5" rib spring, the Gemini will have an 8.5" rib spring. Where the hourglass has a 10" high hip spring, the Gemini has a 12" high hip spring, with a 16" lower hip spring. A customer who can fit the hourglass corset in size 26" should be able to comfortably fit the Gemini in size 24".
EXTRA BONES FOR SUPPORT:
For sizes 22 and larger, the Gemini corset has extra spiral steel bones in the center of some panels to provide extra vertical tension to the corset, preventing wrinkling or buckling of the fabric and ensuring it stays smooth on the body. The spiral steels are still the high quality, flexible, comfortable bones you've come to know from Timeless Trends.
