Cinch your waist for a retro hourglass look with our Glamour Nouveau Waspie. This little cincher is inspired by the waspies worn under Christian Dior's New Look gowns to create a cinched in waist.
Powermesh waspies and waist cinchers will not give the dramatic curves of a non stretch steel boned corset as they do contain stretch fabrics. However our cinchers and waspies should give a noticeable reduction to the waist.
The look you achieve will depend on your body composition. Model Frenchie L'Amour delightfully describes herself as a 'squishy squirrel'. She doesn't have a lot of muscle on her mid section which allows her to get a great result with this little waspie. If you do have a lot of muscle around your torso then you won't get such a dramatic result as muscle doesn't squish into shape. When it comes to cinchers, waspies and corsets 'squishy squirrels' definitely have the advantage!
Although our waspie is sized by dress size, it's your waist size that is the most important measurement when it comes to this garment. So grab a tape measure and measure your waist quite firmly. Your natural waist is the narrowest part of your torso and is most definitely not your jean size! If you are used to wearing firm control shapewear or corsets and want a more defined look then it's pretty safe to go down one size. Any queries? Please get in touch.
