The 14 panel underbust is a fantastic cut, the extra panels spread the shape of the corset and give it smoother contours, they also allow me to manipulate my pattern a lot more. If your measurements and reduction give you a difference of more than 10 inches between your waist and hips, I would definitely recommend this cut as it does a much better job of spreading the shape for your curves.
It has 18 bones including the busk.
The eyelet/grommet channels are double boned and reinforced with extra fabric.
Waist training requires dedication and devotion, it is not something that will just happen by occasionally wearing a corset and it will take time, it will also need maintenance.
This is a 14 panel corset, the extra panels help distribute the shaping, giving maximum effect with less stress and crumpling on the fabric. The cut allows you to effortlessly and gracefully pull your waist in while the corset remains smooth.

The only slave labour involved is mine and my fiancé's;)

In this article I will take you through the modern meaning of the term "Tight Lacing corsets" and how it was brought into this world!

Over centuries, the definition of the corset has changed,
predominantly since the corset reentered the mainstream market courtesy
of Vivienne Westwood and Jean-Paul Gaultier, the transformation of the terms were aided drastically by the invention of online shops and auction sites.
