This is a prototype designed to show off Paul’s beautiful and original cameos. A cincher is bigger than a belt, smaller than an underbust corset. It will dramatically accent whatever you wear, moving easily between costuming and a night out. Wear it with a flowing skirt, slinky gown, or even jeans.
The Mermaid style features an octopus cameo, with shells, scrolls, scales, seaweed and shark teeth. Painted in silver, blue and black. Lacing is black ribbon. Fits waists 26″ to 32″. Photo 2 shows this exact belt.
The cinchers are meant to sit at waist level. They lace criss-cross style in the back through 8 sturdy D-rings. This cincher is 24″ long, not including the lacing, and 6″ wide in the center. The lacing is part of the style and also allows adjustability for size. A lacing width of 4″ to 8″ is recommended but it could be shorter or longer to your taste (see photo for a visual on that).
