Vixen Corset with Button Trim in "Literally Michelle's 2008 Couch" - Peppermint Parlor 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! ;)
*Boned in 7 places with our signature fiberglass rods and super rigid spring steel from Europe. (We keep these at a very affordable base price, but if you like a lot more of a corseted feel and absolutely perfectly smooth fabric, I would recommend getting extra front boning. We already include extra back boning for free. Anyhow, That's what I do for all of my corsets, and it works wonders. The only reason I don't do it as a standard pattern is because it does make the piece more pricey, and some women don't like that much boning. Just a recommendation. ;) *Curving hourglass lines and a more "vest style" appearance. *long lines to flatten the lower tummy and give amazing posture and support!
*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!
