The look and feel of a tapestry makes this corset a true vintage floral. The flowers are muted and subtle but evident against the black background. With black trim and satin lacing this corset is perfect for that renaissance look.

About the Gemini Corset:
Your hips must be at least 10 inches greater than your waist to fit the Gemini Corset.
TWO SILHOUETTES TO CHOOSE FROM:
The Cupped Gemini silhouette 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 Gemini 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" rib spring. Where the hourglass has a 10" high hip spring, the Gemini has a 12" high hip spring. A customer who can fit the hourglass corset in size 26" should be able to comfortably fit the Gemini in size 24".
A LONGLINE LOOK - WITHOUT THE LENGTH:
The Gemini has the look of a longline corset, so it extends down over the hips on the side and accommodates a 16" low hip spring. The longline corset is aesthetically preferred among some corset wearers. The extra smoothing and support over the hip area provides a beautiful silhouette, and in many cases the corset snuggles better under the waistband of slacks and skirts compared to corsets cut high over the hips. However, you don't have to be long-waisted to wear the Gemini, because it's same length as the regular hourglass in the front and along the princess seam! It will fit anyone with a waist length of 9 inches or more. It will fit like a comfortable longline corset for a petite or short-waisted person.
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.
HIGHER BACK TO HOLD THE "MUFFIN":
You spoke and we listened! The Gemini corset has a slightly higher back compared to the hourglass corsets, to help hold in the "muffin top" or skin roll-over.
