Corset Styles Guide

Delicious Corsets can be Custom Drafted, made in Ready to Wear stock sizes, or be purchased Off the Rack from our In Stock Selection. Moreover, in addition to our 3-Layer Standard Corsets we now also offer 2-Layer Fashion Corsets. Furthermore, within those choices there is also a varied selection of Overbust and Underbust styles from which to choose. It sounds a bit overwhelming, but when you know how it works it's actually quite simple! That's what this guide is for... we'll explain everything and you'll be making educated decisions about the corset that's right for you in no time flat!

Custom vs. Ready to Wear (or maybe even "In Stock" if you're lucky!):

Not everyone can fit into an "Off the Rack" corset; it's a cold, hard fact of life. Some of us are pears, some of us are apples, and some of us even have a little applesauce running over. And that's fine... that's what keeps the world interesting!

Our In-Stock Corsets are cut from Ready to Wear patterns and they are on our shelves now! ...yes, NOW! We have quite a large selection of In-Stock corsets on our racks at any given time so stop by... we will often have just the piece you're looking for!

Our Ready to Wear corsets are the stock sized corsets that are cut to the measurements we've spent years perfecting! They fit a LOT of people fine as is, but of course they won't fit everyone. That's why Delicious created "Custom!"

Our Custom Corsets are drafted to your exact measurements and are created just for you! Bells, whistles, you say? You got it! These are the pieces that can be as one of a kind as you like... You can rest assured that no one at the party will be wearing the same thing as you if you're wearing a Custom Delicious Corset!

3 Layer Standard Corsets vs. 2-Layer Fashion Corsets:

Our 3-Layer Corsets are the standard, heavy duty, tough as nails, suitable for waist training corsets that we became famous for since our humble beginnings back in 1995. You simply can't find a stronger, more well made corset... you just can't. They are truly engineering masterpieces. However, almost 15 years later, we decided that perhaps not everyone needs a corset that is designed to withstand waist training and speeding bullets... some people just wanna look hot! And that's A-OK!

We've recently begun offering Delicious 2-Layer Fashion Corsets... just as beautiful on the outside, but without quite as much architecture on the inside. Still very strong mind you, still stronger than the mass produced pieces flooding the market, still hand made in the basement our our store, but considerably less money which makes it a very attractive alternative in this uncertain economy!

Overbust Styles:

Overbust Corsets are quite simply that... corsets that will cover your bustline. In other words, safe to wear outside in public with nothing underneath (without fear of being charged with indecency.)

Underbust Styles:

Underbust corsets are styles that fall below the bustline. They can be worn over camisoles, bodysuits, tee shirts, tank tops, slip dresses, you name it, they're very versatile! And in the privacy of your own home, you might not have to wear it over anything at all! <wink>
