To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I'm 5'7" and 125ish lbs. My waist is 27", so I got a small in the brown corset. The fit was perfect except for the shoulder straps. They are clearly too tall for me and kept falling off my shoulders. I had even cut the faux ties from the straps and used leather cord to "cinch" the straps using the two holes already there. It helps slightly, but not enough. I also immediately replaced the silky cording for real leather, which worked great. Also, whatever boning may be in it, it isn't strong at all. During the course of the day, the corset loosened and I lost figure shape due to it relaxing. It wasn't a hot day, so sweating was not the cause. Overall, despite it's issues, it was a great price, and serves it's purpose.
I am a 45 bust, 42 waist, and 50 hips. After reading reviews on sizing I was certain 6x was the size for me. The bodice fits nicely, but I don’t have the breast to fill the top section, even when tightened up. I wear a 40 C bra. I think I will return this and try a 5X because I can always let out the corset on the bodice if I need to, but I’d like to be able to lift my girls if possibe! ~the material is very nice, and everything seems well-made. I ordered the light brown option, and it’s very cute!
I have worn corsets before but none with a zipper. I was very hesitant to buy this one because I didn’t see how you could possibly tighten it without busting the zipper.
But it works! It seems to be sewn in very well and the zipper itself is sturdy. The sleeves slip down for me like everyone else has said so I’ve got to come up with a way to fix that and I’ll be replacing the tie for the front. It is a satiny feeling string (though it’s also pretty sturdy) that slips to much to tie tightly.
I wear a medium or large top, so ordered an xl after reading the comments. It's still too small! The patch in the back isn't wide enough to cover and the zipper would be strained to the limit if I tried tightening the back further. I love this style though, am buying a larger size, plus one for my daughter. It's a very beautiful corset, well made and looks like it will last a long time.
Posting from my guys account. I bought this for a renaissance faire coming up this month, and this product will work for my costume. However the bottom of the corset is more straight then what is shown in the pictures, where the corset is higher at the hips. I'm 5'3, 110, 33 bust and 25 waist, bought a medium, and probably should have gotten a small. As is I have it completely tightened in the back, and most of the way in the front. It's fit's in the chest area, but it does not go small enough for my waist. For over my skirt and dress it will work, but If I buy it again I'll be sizing down. Otherwise very comfortable, no weird pinching or itching. I did cut the bows off the shoulder straps though, as they're purely decorative.
Straps are not adjustable which is about the only truly disappointing thing about this corset. Other than that it fit about as you would expect from an Amazon corset. Maybe a bit on the small size. Especially if you’ve got big boobs. I’m 5’2” and 240lbs with 42G boobs and I’m shaped like a fridge with no curves. I ordered the largest size and it juuuust fits. However my boobs are squished in a weird way and I’m not sure yet how to fix that. My belly hangs out the bottom some but I expected that. And there’s no stretch to the fabric. As far as mass produced corsets go id say it’s a 3.4 - 4 stars.
Fits oddly. The overall measurement worked for me, the XL based on their chart, but I am only 5’4” and the length including the shoulder straps wasn’t quite right, and the straps are not adjustable. It looked well through the waist, would have covered my bust which would have been fine, but the straps didn’t even rest on my shoulders, even with it pulled all the way down as far as it would go. Maybe if I went up a size, but then I fear I couldn’t lace it properly and the whole thing would be too big. So I guess I’ll keep shopping.
I originally ordered a 2xl because I've previously ordered 2XL for corsets made in China on Amazon and they fit great. It was huge on me, so I returned it and got the XL. I have 38" bust, 31" waist, usually size 12 or large & 5'6". The XL is still too big - I can tighten the back as much as it goes. I wish I had a Large, but now it says it won't arrive until after halloween, which is when I'll need it. The bust of the XL fit alright, but I could tell the L would still fit, because I have quite a bit more room to loosen the front lace-up as well as the back if needed. The waist is still way too big, even though I have the exact measurements of the XL waist on the fitting chart. Despite that, the colour is awesome, and I love the lace-up detail in the front. The zipper seems to be good quality too.
It’s actually really good! I didn’t expect it to be much considering the price. The boning in it holds up really well, it doesn’t try to fold when you’re sitting down. I definitely think this will hold up for a couple of uses. The material is nice, and it doesn’t look really fake. Could definitely use at the renaissance festival.
The only down-side is that the shoulder straps are really weird because they fall down. If you’re good with sewing it’s an easy fix, but if you’re not, and don’t mind pulling them up every 5 minutes, then you’re good to go!
I was worried I was ordering too small because I did want it to cinch my waist a bit but when I got it, it fit perfect! My waist measurement right now is 35-36" and I ordered an XL. The material seems sturdy and looks great.
My only complaints are that the corset is advertised to have steel bones, but they're actually plastic (not shocked but its something to keep in mind) so it doesn't keep its shape as much as I would like. Also, the strings used for lacing it up are (strong but) thin and slippery so its a little difficult to lace properly.
But overall great product. Would buy again in other colors!
