Description

Heledd

Heledd is one of those corsets that look simple enough at a glance but when worn, the full artistry becomes apparent! A great deal of time has been spent refining this piece into our most sleek and practical corset to date, and investment in comfort and quality. Designed especially for those of you who tightlace regularly (and maybe even waist train) but prefer to keep their corset hidden under clothing. Incorporating all of the fine details of shaping that we have developed for our bespoke clients to give the smoothest fits, alongside some construction techniques to reduce elements such as seam bulk and boning profiles alongside a more defined curve. In order to give you the best possible fit we are also offering two different body length options for the first time, so you can be sure of the best comfort for your figure.

The shape is a graceful sweeping series of lines, loosely inspired by Victorian cuts with a modern silhouette. The underbust line hugs the breast shape, curving elegantly up to the side bust to eliminate the gap between bra and corset that can cause bulging. Gentle shaping at the upper back also helps to reduce any last hints of bulge for shapewear that all but disappears under clothing. Heledd is cut for generous hourglass curves that keep pleasing proportions and a smooth flowing silhouette, no jarring jumps into the waist line or hip shelves! The lower edge smoothly slides up to the mid hip, with shaping to help pull the corset taut around the lower belly, reducing the profile of the corset under fitted dresses.

Construction on the Heledd is kept light and airy. A single layer of tightly woven cotton coutil, suitable for warmer weather use and healthy against the skin for regular wear. Seams are smooth and flat with durable grosgrain ribbon to house the spiral steel boning used over the main body. Heledd uses 20 steel bones in total to ensure all round support, including sturdy flat steels at the rear. A fully boned floating modesty panel is included, an upgraded version with more pleasing shape. The entire corset is bound in silk to avoid the line of binding being visible during wear.

Body lengths and custom fit options

One of the biggest issues with comfort and fit is a corset being too long or short, meaning it either digs into you when you try to sit down or the fullest parts of the corset are too high up on your body. For the first time on a standard size corset, we are able to offer two body length options to ensure you get a fit that you will be proud to show off, and look forward to putting on day after day. To find your best fit measure the length from the lowest part of your bra underwire or underbust to your waist while standing in an upright posture. Pick the closest length to your size, our Regular length is best suited to bodies with around a 4″ underbust to waist length, and our Tall length is suited to around a 5″ underbust to waist length.

Measuring from underbust to waist

Another first- the Heledd comes with a click through option for custom fit. We have found over the years that many of our customers have chosen to have the standard size measurements tweaked for a more personal fit, here it is all simplified for you! If your measurements are not close enough to our standard size chart simply select “custom fit” and leave us your underbust, waist, reduced waist and hip measurements according to your chosen body lengths at checkout. For instance, if you select the regular length, please send us your underbust 4″ above waist, and your hips 4″ below waist. You will find details on measuring yourself in this link

Sizing Advice And Construction

The Heledd underbust is intended for waist reductions of up to 4″ and is suitable for daily wear. We generally suggest you buy a corset 6″ smaller than your natural waist size- this accounts for a 4″ reduction and a 2″ lacing gap, the chart at the top of the page may help you choose your size but please contact us with any questions you have.

Your underbust includes:

  • A traditional busk or zip fastening in your choice of silver or gold (speciality busk colours available on request)
  • A minimum of 20 spring and spiral steel bones.
  • Finest quality two part eyelets and light lacing cord with spare set of standard corset laces.
  • Front modesty placket and a boned modesty panel suspended behind the lacing.
  • A design cut for smooth curves and discreet wear under clothing.
  • Sturdy cotton coutil fabric and grosgrain boning channels.
  • Silk binding.
