What I Can Teach You About Corsets

How to Buy a Waist Training Corset

Traditionally, “waist training” alludes to the use of steel boned corsets to produce a visible hourglass shape. Through cinching a waist training corset tighter, it can pull in a woman’s floating ribs and even lead to the rearranging of her internal organs to effectively lessen the circumference of her waist. The effect is semi-permanent, which implies that continued corseting is necessary after the goal size has been obtained.

If you are considering buying one for yourself, you have numerous options. Even if it is certainly fun to shop for them, it can also be somewhat overwhelming. Before going out to buy a waist training corset, here are some of the top tips that you need to keep in mind.

Identify Your Size

As a basic rule, if your natural waist (where you bend side to side) is under 38″, go with a corset that is 4-7 inches smaller than your natural waist. If it is over 38″, choose one that is 7-10 inches smaller than your natural waist. Your waist trainer should be adequately tight to pull your waist in on the 3rd hook closure. It must not interfere with your breathing and there should not be any pain. The shaper needs to close right without any bulging.

Choose from Under-bust or Over-bust Corsets

Waist training corsets are found either as under-bust or over-bust. Like the name suggests, the under-bust corset sits under the bust, so there is no coverage of the breasts. This can be beneficial since they can be worn with various types of bras, pasties, or even over your other garments to create a costume or a fashion statement. Contrastingly, the over-bust corset offers coverage of the breasts and may be purchased in a wide variety of neckline styles. They are also available with or without straps.

Figure out Type of Boning

Steel boning is available in two different types, spiral steel and flat steel. Spiral steel has more flexibility than flat steel, but they are generally both used in the same corset. Although corsets with steel boning are typically a lot more expensive, the advantages of buying a corset with this type of boning are certainly worth the additional cost. A steel boned corset can be used for waist training if the overall construction of the corset is sufficiently strong. Double boned corsets, which are built from steel, are mainly used for waist training. They have twice as much boning as a normal corset so they give more support and can also be laced tighter.
