Understanding Your Body Measurements

Before you can choose the right size corset, you need to know your body measurements. Use a measuring tape to measure your waist, hips, and bust. Write down these measurements and compare them to the size chart provided by the corset manufacturer.

Consider the Type of Corset

The size of the corset you choose may also depend on the type of corset you are interested in. If you are looking for an overbust corset, the measurements taken should be from the fullest part of the bust, while for the waist and hip measurements, the smallest part of your waist and the widest part of your hips are taken into consideration.

Choose the Right Material

When choosing a corset, the type of material it is made from is an important consideration. Certain materials like mesh, cotton, and leather are more flexible and stretchable than other materials like steel or plastic boning. Boning refers to the stiff fabric or rigid material used to give corsets their shape. Depending on the level of stiffness you want, you can select the right size of corset which will work in harmony with the chosen material.

Understand Your Purpose for Wearing a Corset

The size of corset will also depend on the purpose for which you are wearing it. If you are wearing it as part of a costume, a fashion accessory or for medical reasons, you may want to choose a specific size of corset. For example, a plus-size corset with a heavy steel boning would be suitable for waist training and body shaping. While a fashion corset may fit differently and only require flexible boning or no boning at all.

Try It On

If you aren’t sure what size corset to buy or if you’re between sizes, it’s important to try it on before purchasing. Ensure to select a reputable retailer to avoid buying the wrong size corset. Be sure to check the return policy before purchasing, this will give you confidence in trying on a range of sizes before making a decision.
