Underbust corsets are all about the waist. Unless you're feeling very racy indeed, they need to be worn with a top or a dress underneath or over the top, and they're less hot and a bit easier to move around in than a full overbust. Each one is steel boned and can reduce the waist by 4-5 inches from your normal size but they're easier to sit down in and simpler to lace on your own- all features that make them ideal for slightly more 'everyday' wear, or for wearing over a longer period.
All of our steel boned underbust corsets come with a modesty panel, so the lacing can be made less obvious when you feel like being discreet, and they're lined for a comfortable next-to-skin wear, although you can also choose to wear them above clothing. The busks are steel and the lacing strong enough to be cinched up tight. Fabrics are of the highest quality, with cotton inside and brocade, jacquard, taffeta or other gorgeous choices outside.
Worn over a simple blouse, a corset can make a conservative and boring business suit into an eye-catching, innovative piece of office wear, and an underbust corset can transform a plain day dress into something special, with a distinct vintage flavour. If you've got a once-loved dress that now doesn't fit quite right hidden away in your wardrobe (and who doesn’t), pair it up with one of these and it'll look great again.
