This corset is beautiful and well boned. I ordered a large as my back and waist are medium to large sized but this corset did not fit all the way round by abdomen. Therefore, I had to go and buy some mathing navy blue material, tack it into the back where the ribbon is laced so that when worn, you cannot see the skin of your back/waist. I also had to buy thick ribbon as the ribbon on it was too thin and not long enough. Despite these couple of things, the corset is lovely and very flattering.
