How to select corset size

How do I select the right size? 

It is our recommendation to order the corset size by adding 10 to your natural waist size (inches).

For example, if the measurement around the narrowest part of your relaxed waist is 30", you would typically order your corset in waist size 40 (30+ 10). 

All corset comes with a 4 inches back panel, the corset size 40 has waist size 30" with back panel and 26" with the corset fully close. 



Why do I need to wear corset?

  • Corset is fashion.
  • Corset can make you look like an hourglass figure.
  • Corset can be used to train your waist into shape.
  • Corsets can instantly 'improve' the figure without dieting, slimming drugs, or cosmetic surgery.
  • Corsets can reduce pain and improve function for people with back problems or other muscular/skeletal disorders.
  • Some large-breasted women find corsets more comfortable than brassieres, because the weight of the breasts is carried by the whole corset rather than the brassiere's shoulder straps. (Straps can chafe or cut the skin.) However, if a bra is properly fitted, the weight of the breasts is carried by the band and not by the shoulders, thus eliminating this problem for even women with very large breasts.
  • Some corset-wearers enjoy the feeling of being "hugged" by the corset.
  • Due to their tightness and close proximity to the body, corsets can make the wearer feel very warm. They have been most often worn in cool climates.

How to lace corset?

  • Start the lace from the inside, feed the lacing through the top of corsets.
  • Feed the lace on the left side and cross it over to the right. Slip it into the eyelet. Make sure that the lace that crosses over forms a line that stays outside of the corset. Repeat this on the right lace, alternating over then under through each eyelets in a series of X's
  • Continue in alternating X's until you reach the center or waistline of the corset. This is where the puller-loop is created. The puller-loop is the loop of lace that you pull on to draw in the corset. Please note that the puller-loop MUST be on the outside.
  • Take the left lace and slip it through the next eyelet down on the left side. This creates a loop on the outside of the corset. The remaining lace should now be on the inside. Now for the right side, take the right lace and slip it through the next eyelet down on the right side. The remaining lace should be on the inside.
  • Continue in alternation X's until you reach the bottom and tie it off.
