Corset Dress (Black)
This strapless, bare-shoulder dress is a staple of the Gothic Lolita look. It can be worn with or without a blouse, bolero or other top garment. In the hot summer, it can be worn by itself.
The bustle is convertible - you can wear the corners of the skirt either up or down by pulling up and tying the embedded drawstring.
New for this year is boning in the corset to give it a cleaner from the bust to the waist.
The back is shirred and laces up for comfort and fit.

You may notice that most of our clothes are labeled either "One Size" or "Free Size". What does this mean?
- One Size - these garments do not stretch; their size is fixed, and they are only available in one size (see the measurements on the product page).
- Free Size - similar to "one size fits all", these garments stretch to a point. Still only produced in one size.
Keep in mind that our clothes are mainly from Japan, where there's less variation in adult sizing. In most cases, only one size of a given item is even produced - the only question is whether or not it can stretch to become "free size". In some cases (t-shirts, some blouses and pants), there is more than one size available.
We post the measurements of each garment at the bottom of each product page, so that you can compare them with your own. Keep in mind that all measurements are taken externally, so it's a good idea to add at least a half inch to an inch to your own body measurements for a comfortable fit.
Please feel free to ask us any questions about sizing in advance of ordering. Keep in mind that we do not accept returns for sizing.
