Back in 2013 when I first made this gallery, the "extreme hourglass" (or sometimes the "wasp waist" corset) was a fairly rare beast. More recently it's rebranded into "cupped rib corsets" which are now offered by OTR brands!
The extreme hourglass silhouette can be effectively described as the "belted pillow" look, with a very rounded (cupped) rib shape, and often a striking hip spring as well.
This silhouette is polarizing: folks tend to either love it or hate it, and when you throw a pipestem in there, the results (and reactions) are even more dramatic!
This gallery features some of the cuppiest ribs out there, including eight pipestem corsets.
Seen here is a cupped-rib burlesque corset made by Anni Hiro and modeled by LouLou D'Vil.
