Top Tips for Buying a Waist Training Corset

Traditionally, “waist training” alludes to the use of steel boned corsets to produce a visible hourglass shape. By cinching a waist training corset tighter, it will pull in a woman’s floating ribs and can even rearrange some of her internal organs to effectively diminish the circumference of her waist. The outcome is semi-permanent, which means that continued corseting is required after the goal reduction has been reached.

If you are thinking about buying one for yourself, you have a lot of options. Although it is surely fun to shop for them, it can also be quite overwhelming. Below are some of the most essential factors that you should keep in mind when you want to purchase 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 adequately tight to pull your waist in on the 3rd hook closure. It should not obstruct your breathing and there shouldn’t be any pain. The shaper has to close correctly without any bulging.

Choose from Under-bust or Over-bust Corsets

Waist training corsets are available 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 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.

Determine Type of Boning

You can find steel boning in two different forms, spiral steel and flat steel. Spiral steel tends to be more flexible than flat steel, but they are usually 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. You can use a steel boned corset for waist training if the overall construction of the corset is generally strong. Double boned corsets, which are built from steel, are mainly used for waist training. They have twice as much boning as a usual corset so they provide more support and can also be laced tighter.
