Most people mistakenly say "cumberbund." To me it sounds a lot better and esthetically pleasing to the ear than "cummerbund." However, and unfortunately, the proper spelling is "cummerbund."
Thanks for setting me straight. I have always thought it was with a "B". Maybe many others feel the "cumber" sounds better. That's how I have always pronounced it as well as heard it.
However, the clothing outlets don't help much either. A lot of them have it listed both ways in their descriptions.
