The Lydia Corset
Corset-training for beginners
Our Lydia corset is a great style for those interested in their first corset or waist training experience. This corset pattern was created by using two individual corsets as inspiration. With custom, we can modify a lot of our corset patterns to fit your wants or needs. The Lydia is a hybrid corset featuring the top half of our custom Clara corset and the bottom half of our classic Cincher corset. We crafted this pattern after many requests for more coverage at the bottom for tummy control.
Made with 14 steel bones of the highest quality imported from France, this corset is great for corset beginners. Enjoy a comfortable fit for daily wear both under and over clothing that doesn’t limit body movement from our daily activities. Wear this corset without anyone being any the wiser under your work uniform – whether you sit or stand all day, you’ll benefit from the perfect posture that our corsets give you. The silhouette can give a 2-inch waist reduction to start, and much more if you begin tight-lacing. With consistent wear, you will notice your body will start to change shape and your waist will become smaller. Who doesn’t like that?
Because of this corset’s length and bone placement, it is well suited for both women and men. If you are not concerned about tummy control and would prefer a shorter, flared hip and pointed busk at both ends, consider our custom Clara. You may prefer a straighter seamline at the top of the corset to cover the back and the ribcage, so our Cincher corset is the best solution. If you are not new to corsets and would prefer exaggerated waist definition, the Alyce might be exactly what you’re looking for!
Personalizing your corset
We can make this corset in classic satin, cotton sateen, twill coutil, broche coutil, or lambskin leather. If you would like external bone casings in a different colour or fabric, don’t be afraid to ask! We can also do full or partial lace applique with French lace and contrast stitching when crafting your special corset.
Designer Melanie is happy to find special fabrics and leathers or work with a fabric of your own, within limits. Some fabrics are not suitable for corset-making
