Sizing and Fitting

find out what size you are.

The corsets

All our steel boned corsets are sized in even waist sizes rising in two-inch increments and the equivalent dress sizes, also rising in 2 size increments. The fashion corsets are sized in 1 1/2" increments.

Fitting

Steel boned corsets should be ordered 4-5 inches below your natural waist measurement, depending on the desired effect. If you are tiny, then your waist will not compress as easily, nor as far, as a person who is larger.

Example - 4 inch below waist size :

A person whose natural waist size is 28 inches could order a corset of size 24 inches, and could wear the garment semi closed at the back giving a 2 inch reduction, or fully closed giving a 4 inch reduction. All corsets should be comfortable to wear.

How Take A Waist Measurement

Take your measurements in inches.

Measure around the narrowest part of your waist. This is usually just above your belly button.

Do not suck in your stomach, to get an accurate measurement it must be relaxed.

Keep the tape snug, but don't pull tight.

Always measure 2-3 times for accuracy.

Tightlacing or waist training is the process of permanently altering the wearer's figure, by reducing the waist area. Waist training has benefits such as a better posture and a reduction of stomach size but it can also reduce lung capacity.

We recommend that you consult your doctor before you begin waist training or tightlacing.
