Sizing is very important when ordering a corset. The correct size will ensure that your corset is comfortable and is doing the most for your figure.

The first step in purchasing a corset is to know your measurements. Using a measuring tape you'll begin by measuring the thinnest part of your waist. This is generaly an inch above your navel. Men are usually thinnest at the navel or just below.

Once you have determined your waist measurement you'll need to subtract three from it. This will give you your corset size. For example if you measured 31 inches then your corset size will be a size 28.

If after subtracting three you end up with an odd number simply round down a size. For example if your waist is size 32 you'll subtract three and then round down to size 28.

All Corsets are equal to their size. Meaning, when a size 28 corset is laid out flat it is 28 inches across. The top and bottom vary slightly.

When properly tied your corset should have a gap big enough to fully clear your spine. A gap that is too big or too small will be very uncomfortable to wear and will not provide a good shape. If you feel your corset is not the corset size please let us know and we'll be happy to exchange it for you.

~Plus Size Corset Considerations~
Regardless of your body type, height or weight, corsets can help to shape your body and provide confidence. For those with fuller figures, there are some considerations that you should take into account when being sized for a corset.

The first is that most full figure people tend to “squeeze” a bit more when laced up in a corset. Those who are less curvaceous tend to not squeeze as much and therefore experience less waist reduction in a corset. If you are a bit larger in waist measurement, you can expect to see 4-6” of waist reduction in a corset (depending on the brand or designer) and you should take this into account when selecting a corset size.

The second is that you will want to ensure that you are purchasing a high quality steel boned corset that will conform to your shape over time. Cheaper corsets with plastic boning are more likely to feel uncomfortable and will not be able to support a fuller figure when tight, nor will they provide significant waist reduction. A real corset is all about providing support and shape. Every person regardless of body type will be able to take advantage of the added support an authentic corset provides.

Every company provides corsets in different size ranges. Some do not offer plus size corsets, while others do. Consult the vendor’s sizing information to determine if your waist measurement is included. We offer corsets for those with up to a 45” natural waist.
