Gatsby Vixen in Sing the Blues - The Dapper Dame Collection
*The Vixen Corset is one of our best selling pieces, year after year. Ladies like it because the straps provide some SERIOUS "lift" to the chest area, the full back smooths out all of the..um...."bulges" that we sometimes tend to have in back, and the collar is really flattering to lots of face shapes (keep in mind, it can be worn up or folded down). This pattern is one of the ones in my company that has been refined the most, trying it on thousands of women, taking their fitting advice and questions, and then re-shaping it for a better fit. You will really notice it! ;)
*When measuring! Measure your high waist, usually above the belly button or around the smallest part. Hold measuring tape as snug as possible, and that gives you an idea of how much "squish" your own unique shape has! (However, if you know for a fact that you are blessed either in the bust area or the hips area, I always recommend adding an inch to this squeezed tight size. We want everything to fit everywhere!)
* Keep in mind that our corsets some in size "ranges"! When we say that a corset will fit a 35-37" waist, for example, this means that the ACTUAL corset itself measures 35 inches when pulled taut. However, you could also wear that 35" if you had a 36" or a 37" waist, it would just have a small gap in the lacings!
