Love the shape and fit of the Hourglass Silhouette corsets, but looking for a more neutral color scheme for your next corset? We now have corsets made in our best-selling black, white, and pale nude fashion fabrics available for purchase in the hourglass silhouette, as well as many other beautiful colors and designs! If you’re feeling overwhelmed by the number of choices, here’s a brief recap of all three underbust styles in the hourglass silhouette: waist cincher, regular underbust, and long cut underbust.
Our selection of hourglass waist cinchers now make up slightly more than a third of all the waist cinchers we offer, so petite and shorter waisted wearers have more choices than ever before, including some fashion fabrics that have never before been released in the shorter waist cincher style. Designed with at 4 inch rib spring (difference between waist and under bust, measured 4″ up from the bottom edge of the waist tape) and 7 inch hip spring (difference between waist and hip, measured 2″ down from the bottom edge of the waist tape), these waist cinchers are cute, curvy, and the shorter length offers a bit more mobility at the torso.
From left to right: Nude Waist Cincher Hourglass (TUW-210), Burgundy Hourglass Cincher (TUW-S49), and Iridescent Purple Cincher (TUW-S53), the latter two of which already come in all three hourglass silhouette underbust styles!
Regular Underbust Corsets
Designed with a 6.5 inch rib spring (difference between waist and under bust, measured 5″ up from the bottom edge of the waist tape) and a 10 inch hip spring (difference between waist and hip, measured 4″ down from the bottom edge of the waist tape), as well as a cupped rib shape and rounder underbust contouring at the upper edge, our hourglass regular underbust corsets are curvier and more comfortable than ever. All our best selling fashion fabrics, such as the black cashmere, black floral, pale nude, white satin, and white floral, are available in this style and we’ve added the brand new, sophisticated Tweed Plaid Grey Corset (TUR-001) to the collection for a lovely new take on office chic.
Clockwise from top left: Black Cashmere Hourglass Corset (TUR-W03), Nude Shapewear Hourglass Corset (TUR-210), brand new fashion fabric Tweed Plaid Grey Corset (TUR-001), and White Bridal Hourglass Corset (TUR-S44).
Long Cut Underbust Corsets
Designed with a 6.5 inch rib spring (difference between waist and under bust, measured 6″ up from the bottom edge of the waist tape), a 7″ high hip spring (difference between waist and hip, measured 2.5″ down from the bottom edge of the waist tape), and a 12″ low hip spring (measured 5″ down from the bottom edge of the waist tape) and featuring adjustable ties at the hips, the long cut underbust corsets in the hourglass silhouette are an excellent choice for anyone with curvier hips and a longer torso.
From left to right: Emerald Long Hourglass Corset (TUL-FS18), the addition of which means this fashion fabric is now available in all three hourglass silhouette underbust styles, and Circus Riot Long and Curvy (TUL-344), the hourglass silhouette version of one of our more popular newer designs.
In addition to more dramatic curves the hourglass silhouette corsets also all feature an additional set of garter tabs (bringing the total number per corset from 4 up to 6) and a built in front modesty placket made from matching fashion fabric which works to keep your shirt or skin from getting caught in or showing through the miniscule gap between the two sides of the busk.
Remember to double check your corset size with our sizing page or the handy size tool available on each individual corset product page before you order as the sizing for corsets made in the hourglass silhouette is different from that of the original silhouette. The overlay graphic below illustrates how the same person fits into the different recommended sizes for the hourglass and original sihouette corsets.
From left to right the overlaid corsets are: size 24 Emerald Corset (FS-18), size 22 Emerald Hourglass Corset (TUR-FS18), and both the Emerald Hourglass Corset (TUR-FS18) in size 22 and the White Bridal Satin Corset (S-44) in size 24.
