A fan favorite fabric, our fashionable Asian brocade fabric's green and gold tones make for a stunning cosplay corset and add a touch of opulence to any ensemble. 

Love the fabric but can't find it in your silhouette?  Special order this fabric in the corset that fits your body.  How To Special Order

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!

 How will an Hourglass Overbust fit me?

*The hourglass overbusts come in 33 different sizes (11 waist sizes and 3 bust sizes), so they fit a fairly wide range of body types.

 

Waist chart

Start by finding the corset size that corresponds to your natural waist measurement, then size up or down to get the best fit at the hips and underbust. You want a snug fit at the underbust and hips with the compression at the waist.

We recommend a 1.5" to 3" lacing gap for comfort and adjustability during the day. We do not recommend anything larger than a 3" lacing gap.

For information on how to measure yourself to get the best fit watch our video:

Once you have your corset size, use the Cup Sizing Chart to determine the best Cup Size.

Bust chart

Find your corset size in the chart then using your bust measurement find the best fit. REMEMBER: The Hourglass Overbust has a front lacing. The front lacing can be worn closed or open, so you will want to lean towards the Smaller Cup size to provide the most flexibility.

For best results, see the chart below for bust circumference. Use your "squished bust" measurement with a well-fitting, unpadded bra.

Cup Sizes:

  • 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
