The attached crinoline skirt is made with layers of black tulle and organza, decorated all along the hips with some STUNNING volants of cream and white tulle, enhanced with bronze organza and black chiffon petals.

Compare your natural measuremens with this chart to identify your size. As a standard rule we suggest to order 1 size below your natural size, in order to have some margin to adjust fitting and a slight waist reduction of 2 inches. If yuo need a more pronounced shape you may chose an extra waist reduction of 2 or 4 inches.
EXAMPLE 1 – MODERATE SILHOUETTE – if you have a US size 6, natural waist 26 order a size 4: in this way, you can leave a little gap on the hips and bust for a best comfort, and fully close the corset on the waist to have a 5 cm reduction.
EXAMPLE 2 – ENHANCED SILHOUETTE – if you have a US size 6, natural waist 26, order a size 4 + extra reduction of 2”. This way you have bust and hip close to your measures and a total waist reduction of 4 inches. If you want a more dramatic shape you can add an extra reduction of 4”, that gives you a total waist reduction of 6”.
As a general rule, if you’re tiny your waist will not compress so far, while if you have a larger size we suggest you to try a 6” reduction. If you’re unsure about which size to choose do not hesitate to contact us, we will suggest you the best choice appropriate to your body type.
