Analyze

The creator has also provided the following information:

This is a Vanishing Point corset.  Alterations (long or show) are fine on this provided the item doesn't have a high or restricting neck.  General collars are okay.  It should also be able to completely hide a dagger in the inside lining - no sheer fabrics (chiffon, voile, gauze, etc.) unless they are layered.  Acceptable nouns for this are: corset, bodice, chemise, gown, cotehardie, kirtle, bliaut, dress, houppelande, robe, tunic, or shirt.

This corset is Tier 1 / 1 (two tiers).  Verbs are: GET, PULL, PUSH, PUT, REMOVE, RUB, TAP, TOUCH, and WEAR 

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the XXX for you or deepen its pockets.
