The dragon brocade waist cincher is perhaps the definition of affordable luxury. The lush brocade cloth combined with the cool cotton lining and steel bones make this a great way to get a cinched in waist. The corset had been designed in Europe by Playgirl London and crafted by a skilled corsetiere. It features a steel busk front and has 10 steel bones in total (4 flat steel and 6 spiral steel). All the steel used in the bones is high density European steel. The standard features of Playgirl corsets are, 100% cotton lining, lace up back with strong laces, modesty panel and suspender loops. The front & back length of this corset is 10.5", and the midriff coverage on this is great. SIZING - We recommend a corset 4-5" below your natural waist measurement at the narrowest part, dependant on how much waist reduction you are looking for and the experience you have of wearing corsets. RETURNS - In our physical store you can see the corset and try it on, so we thought we'd give you the chance to do that when you buy from our online too. We offer unlimited exchanges up to 60 days and a no-nonsense 30 days refund policy. The image shown above has been taken on this corset style. We do not use images of other unrelated companies' corsets or generic images. This is a genuine steel boned corset and this can be verified by putting a magnet over the bones, to prove it is steel boned.
