The intricate pattern of our Royal Blue Hourglass Waist Cincher makes it a great choice for Burlesque or any costume in need of some fine detailing. Black accent panels further accentuate the stunning shape this cincher in our curvy hourglass silhouette gives, while it's shorter length makes it an excellent choice for petite or short waisted wearers. Like all of our corsets, this corset comes with our no-hassle Lifetime Guarantee.

Rib Spring: 4" (measured 4" up from the bottom edge of waist tape)
Hip Spring: 7" (measured 2" down from the bottom edge of waist tape)

Your torso is less than 9" in height, and your ribcage and hips are fairly balanced. Those with a longer torso can wear this corset as well, fashioned as a wide belt.
You have a prominent lower tummy pooch (aka "mother's apron"), as this corset is very short and will not fully cover the lower abdomen unless you are very petite or have a short torso. People with hips that are 10+ inches greater than their waist measurement may find the lower edge of this corset narrower than is most comfortable for them.
