Another common corset shape is the gentle, or modern slim, hourglass. It’s an adaptation of the classic Victorian hourglass that has been modified for modern bodies that are unused to the more physiologically demanding pressures of the classic hourglass shape. It is one of the most versatile silhouettes: comfortable for even the most casual of corset-wearers, as well as suitable for beginning waist training for women with narrow hips or less than a 10” difference between waist and hip measurements. This example is from Timeless Trends. The level 2 corsets from Orchard Corsets are similarly shaped.
