Most people find that our sizing runs generously. If you are undecided with which size to order, it is best to order the smaller size. Additionally, you may add your measurements (bust and waist) at check out and we can help you choose the nearest size.
An exception to the generous sizing is the type of ball gown that requires boning in the bodice and that supports a heavy skirt. Many times this style is also "off-the-shoulder" and requires a firm fit to stay up. These styles tend to not run as generously as most of our other garments because of this.
In most cases you should take your bust and waist measurement to determine your size. Please wear the undergarments that you intend to wear when you do your measuring. For example, take your measurement over the type of brassiere or corset that you may be wearing.
Measure the fullest part of your bust around and the smallest part of your waist.

We are so proud of this beautiful corselete! In the late 1800's ladies started wearing skirt and blouse combinations, giving rise to many decorative belts. Our corselete is made up in black moire (think wood-grain pattern in the fabric) and is fully boned. There are seven bones in the smaller sizes, and nine bones in the larger corseletes. This means you don't have to be concerned that it will "fold" while you are wearing it. We have added a classic decorative embroidery design in ivory thread on the front panel. A matching ribbon laces up the back to ensure a perfect fit. Please order by your waist size. Made in America exclusively for Recollections by Madame's Mercantile. The perfect way to tie together those separates!
