This corset is constructed in our most popular hourglass shape as an overbust, available in three cup sizes to fit your body. This silhouette has a higher back for comfort and support with a built in modesty panel. The front bust lacing provides for additional flexibility for fit and exposure to provide you with the comfort and curves you deserve.
Thank you to all the contributors who have worked with us over the years to make this corset possible:
Amber Welch for the initial design. Lowana O'Shea (Vanyanis) for adjusting the pattern for comfort, and Lucy (Lucy's Corsetry) for her input to making this possible, and all our customers who asked for the Hourglass Overbust!

Cup sizes for the Hourglass Overbust are based upon your bust measurement and the corset size. You will also need to consider both the front and back lacing gap.
To determine your cup size, measure your bust at its fullest. Subtract the corset size from your bust measurement. This is your bust spring. REMEMBER: you have a lacing gap in the back and a lacing gap in the front to consider.
EXAMPLE: Your natural waist measures 37" this equals a size 30 in the Hourglass. Your bust measurement is 38". Subtract 30 from 38 = 8 this is your bust spring.
You want a snug cup fit with some open front lacing, and a small lacing gap = Small Cup
You want a looser cup fit with closed front lacing and no back lacing gap = Medium Cup
