To select correct corset size:

  • Stand in front of a mirror, wrap your tape measure snugly around your narrowest part of your waist.
  • Check in the mirror to make sure the tap measure is parallel to the floor and flat across your back.
  • Record this measurement in inches and write it down.
  • If the number is even, add 10.
  • If the number is odd, add 11.

P.S. It is our recommendation to order the corset which has the waist length 4 inches below your natural waist measurement. The above measurement has already reflected this recommendation.


How to lace corsets?

  • 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. 


 

 

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 clean and care corset?
  • Our tranditional corset must be dry cleaned. Never ever machine wash a corset that will cause the steel busk and steel bone rusted. If you do se rust, apply a drop of Whisk, or other fabric-safe rust remover. Never expose the corset to sunlight to dry as it may fade. If washing a corset you may use a soft toothbrush very lightly to remove stubborn stains. Towel the corset dry and treat it as you would a fine cashmere sweater. Again, we urge extreme caution, and rapidity of drying the corset.

 

How to wear a corset?
  • Corsets are delivered with garters attached and laced up the back with two long loops at the waist located roughly midway between top and bottom. As you will have a corset that is between two and four inches smaller than your normal waist size, first loosen the lacing at the back until there is a gap of about 3-4 inches. To assist you to close the corset, exhale and contract your tummy inwards as you fasten the middle snap. Use this process in reverse to take the corset off. Always remember to unloosen the ties before you try to unsnap the front busk at the middle snap. If you do not, you risk "popping" off one of the front snaps. On no account should you try to lace the corset closed, or even very tightly on the first several wearings. As you lace down, measure your waist to see that it has not been reduced on the outside of the corset any more than about 1 1/2 inches for the first four times you wear it. This is because corsets need "breaking in time". After a while they mold to your body shape and the material takes the strain of waist reduction evenly. Placing too much pressure on the corset at the outset may damage the fabric or "pop" stitches. In addition, it may cause you discomfort and a negative feeling toward your beautiful new garment. Remember that moderation is the catch word here!
