Red and Black Leather Corset - Overbust
CORSET SIZING GUIDE AND INFORMATION – PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING
CORSET SIZING GUIDE:
In order for our corsets to cinch in your waist, your correct corset size will be a smaller number than your natural waist measurement. The number of your corset size indicates the number of inches the corset measures at its smallest point (the waist line).
Corset sizing is different from the way most modern clothing is sized. You will need to take a measurement to determine the size that will fit you best. For the most accurate sizing, you will need your natural waist measurement.
To take your natural waist measurement, keep the tape measure as close to parallel with the floor as possible, draw it snugly but not too tightly around your waist, and read the number.
Your natural waist measurement should be taken just above your navel. Usually this is the smallest part of your waist, however, since people come in all shapes and sizes, this may not be the case! If you're unsure where to measure, try standing with your back straight and then tilt the top half of your torso sideways. The place where your torso naturally bends and creases is your natural waist!
DO NOT pick a size by subtracting the number of inches of reduction you would like from your uncorseted waist measurement. It WILL NOT fit you properly or comfortably. Our sizing tool factors in a lacing gap of 2-4 inches when estimating sizes (2-4 inches gap is the ideal proper fit). If measured correctly, you will fit into your corset size even if you gain or lose about twenty pounds.

Our corsets are designed to sit right at the hipbone on most wearers, and they have a contoured under-bust line to accentuate and slightly lift the bust area. (Sometimes you may need to scoop as you get tied!). Our corsets are a great place to start if you're just beginning to get into corsetry since they fit the majority of people well and they come in a large array of fashion fabrics, colors, and sizes to chose from!
Petite and Plus Size Considerations:
Regardless of your body type, a corset can help shape your body into a smooth hourglass shape that you can feel confident about! Often, people with fuller figures find that they're able to cinch their waists down further than people who fit into the smaller sizes.
