Corsets have long been admired for their ability to enhance the figure, create a stunning silhouette, and exude timeless elegance. However, putting on a corset can be a daunting task, especially for those who are new to this enchanting garment. In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of putting on a corset, ensuring a comfortable and stylish fit.
What To Do Before Putting On Your Corset
Step 1: Choosing the Right Corset
Before you begin, it’s crucial to find the perfect corset that fits your body well. Variations such as Mesh Corset, Denim Underbust Corset. Then consider factors such as waist size, bust size, and the desired level of waist reduction. A properly fitted corset will provide support and shaping without causing discomfort. Take accurate measurements and consult size charts or a professional corsetiere if needed.
Step 2: Prepare Yourself
Before wearing a corset, it’s essential to prepare your body. Wear a thin layer of clothing, such as a camisole or a lightweight undershirt, to protect your skin and prevent any rubbing or chafing. If desired, you can also wear a corset liner or a thin cotton cloth underneath for additional comfort.
Step 3: Loosen the Laces
Unlace the corset fully or loosen the laces considerably to create an opening large enough for easy entry. Ensure that the laces are evenly distributed and untangled. A corset with a front busk closure will have clasps or buttons at the front, making it easier to put on.
Step 4: Positioning
Hold the corset vertically with the busk or front closure facing your body. Begin by positioning the corset around your torso with the bottom edge resting just above your hips. Ensure that the center front aligns with the center of your body.
Step 5: Closing the Busk
If your corset has a front busk closure, gently position the clasps or buttons into their corresponding loops or holes. Start from the bottom and work your way up, fastening each clasp until the corset is securely closed. Take care not to force or strain the busk; it should close easily and smoothly.
Step 6: Adjusting the Fit
Begin tightening the laces at the back of the corset, starting from the top and working your way down. Gradually pull the laces tighter, creating a snug fit without excessive pressure. It’s essential to maintain comfort while achieving the desired waist reduction. It is generally recommended to have assistance in tightening the laces, especially for beginners.
Step 7: Tying the Laces
Once you’ve achieved a comfortable and flattering fit, tie the laces into a secure bow or knot at the back of the corset. Ensure that the bow or knot is centered and not too tight. Avoid overtightening the laces as it may restrict your movement and cause discomfort.
Step 8: Final Adjustments
Take a few moments to adjust the corset on your body. Ensure that it sits evenly around your torso, without any bulges or gaps. Gently shift your body and test your range of motion to ensure comfort and flexibility. If needed, make minor adjustments to the laces for optimal fit and support.
Now let’s look at the complete guide on how to wear a corset yourself as a beginner.
How To Put On A Corset Yourself
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to put on a corset yourself.
Step 1: Loosen the Laces
Start by loosening the laces or undoing them completely to create a wide opening in the back of the corset. This will allow you to easily slip into the corset.
Step 2: Put on the Corset
Hold the corset vertically with the back facing you. Wrap the corset around your torso, aligning the center front with the center of your body. Ensure the corset is positioned properly with the bottom edge sitting just above your hips.
Step 3: Fasten the Front Closure (If Applicable)
If your corset has a front busk closure, align the clasps or buttons from the bottom to the top. Gently fasten each clasp until the front of the corset is securely closed. Take care not to force or strain the busk; it should close easily and smoothly.
Step 4: Adjust the Corset
Stand up straight and ensure that the corset is centered and properly aligned on your body. Adjust the corset so that it fits snugly and comfortably around your torso. Pay attention to any bulges or gaps and make any necessary adjustments.
Step 5: Start Tying the Laces
Begin from the top of the corset, take the laces in each hand, and cross them over at the center back. Insert the laces into the corresponding eyelets, starting from the top and working your way down.
Step 6: Lace the Corset
Pull the laces downward, gradually cinching the corset tighter as you go. Cross the laces over at each set of eyelets and pull them out through the next set, creating an “X” pattern. Repeat this crisscross pattern until you reach the bottom of the corset.
Step 7: Create Tension
Once the laces have been threaded through all the eyelets, gently pull the laces outward to create tension. This will tighten the corset around your waist, providing the desired shaping and support. Be careful not to pull too tightly initially, as you can adjust the tightness later.
Step 8: Tie a Secure Knot
When you’re satisfied with the level of tightness, tie a secure knot at the center back of the corset. You can use a bow or a knot, whichever you find most comfortable. Make sure the knot is centered and secure, holding the tension of the laces.
Step 9: Final Adjustments
Take a few moments to adjust the corset on your body. Ensure that it sits evenly around your torso without any discomfort or restrictions. You should be able to breathe comfortably and have a full range of motion. If necessary, make minor adjustments to the laces for optimal fit and support.
Remember, it may take some practice to find the right tightness and achieve a comfortable fit. Take your time and listen to your body’s signals. With practice, you’ll become more proficient at putting on and adjusting your corset to achieve the desired look and feel.
Putting on a corset may seem intimidating at first, but with the right technique and a bit of practice, it becomes a simple and enjoyable process.
