Top Tips for Buying a Waist Training Corset

Traditionally, “waist training” makes reference to the use of steel boned corsets to create a noticeable hourglass shape. By cinching a waist training corset tighter, a woman’s floating ribs will be pulled and even do some rearranging of her internal organs to successfully decrease the circumference of her waist. The results are semi-permanent, which signifies that continued corseting is needed after the aimed reduction has been attained.

If you are thinking about purchasing one for yourself, you have various options. Even though it is definitely fun to shop for them, it can also be a little overwhelming. Here are a few of the most important things that you need to remember when you want to buy a waist training corset.

Figure out Your Size

As a basic guideline, if your natural waist (where you bend side to side) is under 38″, opt for a corset that is 4-7 inches smaller than your natural waist. If it is over 38″, pick one that is 7-10 inches smaller than your natural waist. Your waist trainer should be sufficiently 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 must close properly minus any bulging.

Decide between an Under-bust or Over-bust Corset

Waist training corsets can be purchased either as under-bust or over-bust. Like the name implies, the under-bust corset is positioned under the bust, giving no coverage of the breasts. This is great if you want to wear them with many kinds of bras, pasties, or even over your other clothes to produce a costume or a fashion statement. On the other hand, the over-bust corset offers coverage of the breasts and is available in a extensive range of neckline styles. You can also find them with or without straps.

Identify Type of Boning

Steel boning is available in two different types, spiral steel and flat steel. Spiral steel is more flexible than flat steel, but they are typically 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 may be used for waist training as long as the overall construction of the corset is adequately strong. Double boned corsets, which are made from steel, are primarily 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.
