Corsets are a fun and sexy addition to the wardrobe. The fact that it usually takes the assistance of another person to put on or remove a corset can add an extra element of sexiness to wearing one. There are a lot of different types of corsets out there and it can sometimes be a challenge, not to mention a little pricey to find the perfect one.
If you’re just looking for something that looks like a corset or are on a small budget it is possible to find corset style tops at many normal clothing retailers. The boning in these types of tops, if they have it at all is generally made of plastic and isn’t strong enough to drastically alter the shape of the body. It does however provide more structure than a normal shirt.
If you want something stronger, or are interested in tightlacing there are a lot of different options out there, just be aware that they can cost hundreds of dollars. Most major cities have at least one corsetiere and there are a plethora of websites that sell corsets Delicious Boutique and Corseterie, Wasp Creations, Xcentricities, and Ms. Martha’s Corset Shoppe to name just a few, in fact, you can even buy them on Amazon.
The first step in acquiring a corset is to decide on a style. The main two types are overbust and underbust. Overbust corsets cover the breasts and extend down to the hips and are standalone garments. Underbust corsets begin beneath the breasts and extend down to the hips and are typically worn over another shirt.
The next step is to take proper measurements. If you’re able to go speak to the corset maker in person, they can help you make sure your corset has the proper fit. If you’re looking online you’re going to have to do this yourself. It is best to enlist the help of another person for this as it is hard to take accurate measurements on your own. For a list of tips on improving the accuracy of your measurements I recommend visiting the Tactical Corsets website . They also have helpful information about figuring out how much you want to reduce your waist size.
Once you know what style and size you want, it’s just a matter of deciding what colors or designs you want on the outside. This can sometimes be the hardest part of the whole venture. There are so many different designs to choose from.
The only thing left to do after that is enjoy this sexy new addition to your wardrobe.
