CORSETS - FULL FIGURES

[Updated 5/31/14]

View below un-retouched images of many clients with whom we have worked since 1990 to achieve remarkable fit and comfort in custom corsetry. We are specialists in fitting larger waistlines, full bosoms, or both! Regina shown right and below modeling a dramatic dragon applique overbust corset designed by her husband Peter, and produced by Sharon McCoy Morgan, is one of them.

"I wore my overbust corset by Sharon from the time I saw you until the end of the night, so about 14 hours. It was so comfortable. I pretty much forgot I had it on. Thank you again for all your help." Christen (5/19/14)

"Over the years I have purchased my wife a few corset from a few different (non-ROMANTASY) corset makers. Some have been too lightweight and some have been to restrictive for her. She is fuller figured and the fit is just not right. One issue we have with her corsets is that she is fuller figured and the corsets we have just do not seem to fit her right. The biggest problem is the fit of the corset when she sits which make sitting uncomfortable for her. The bottom of the corsets seem to hit her thighs which push the corset up into her breasts. Also the back of the corset at the top digs in to her back and the top front sticks out. I am interested in an underbust corset. Something that is sturdy enough for her figure and not too restrictive. What would you recommend?" Travis (8/27/13)

We are specialists in creating great-fitting, comfy corsets for cuddly-sized clients! One of our ROMANTASY team members, Sharon McCoy Morgan, is herself a full-figure lady but all of our corsetieres are expert in this matter.

Fit, comfort and quality start with a set of accurate measurements and we can assist with that, even long distance. We now offer extended email or Skype service to watch you measure or to fit your muslin, and also we can review torso photos taken as shown on our measurements page and sent via email prior to your order.

But more is required to achieve top quality and fit. Taking time to review our real, effective options in torso, bosom, and tummy control is required.

Understanding that it is important not to be penny wise and pound foolish helps achieve your goals. Most likely our Basic Line Corsets while an excellent value, will not provide sufficient boning or layers of fabric to withstand much wear and provide adequate support. Therefore, our Fundamental Line Corsets and our Elegant Line Corsets will be a much better investment.

In our opinion, corsets look best on voluptuous ladies because corsets emphasize curves and more effectively show off the waistline. We have produced well-fitting corsets of many styles for literally thousands of our cuddly-sized clients, solving a variety of fit challenges. We love serving full-figure brides with foundation or fashionable corset gowns, some of whom you will see in the images below. In early 2014 Sharon completed a gorgeous two-toned blue cotton-backed satin corset pictured below, for a client with a bosom measurement of 57" and a waist measurement of 48".

"I will definitely be back for more corsets from ROMANTASY! I have never had any company treat me so well, and take such an interest in what I'm looking for." Sara (3/28/13)

Please view our lovely, happy clients on this page, and also in our Full Figure Gallery.

Men can also benefit from the functions provided by a good man's stay or corset, including excellent torso and midriff control plus back support and better fit of clothing. Wearing a corset will enhance the posture and improve fit of clothing, or even help you to reshape your figure and lose weight if that is your goal. We've successfully fit clients with waistlines up to 60".

Note the excellent fit and torso support provided to clients pictured here, wearing both overbust and underbust styles. Our corsetieres are particularly skilled at shaping and supporting ample bosoms, and we offer an underwire style by Jill, "The Rose", that some clients prefer. Straps may be added to either for additional support.

Many clients start with an underbust style until they reshape their figure, then return for an overbust "bustier" style as reward, however some prefer the overbust style initially, especially if they have large bosoms to support, and prior back strain as a result.

Voluptuous bodies are generally more "plastic" than slender ones, which means that they can compress faster and more comfortably at the waistline. For example, if our customer is voluptuous, we frequently recommend an initial reduction of 6 to 8 inches for a first custom corset when it is laced closed in back, instead of the more traditional 4-inches.

We also recommend that a full-figure customer not wait to order a corset even if he or she is on a diet or in a workout program. We particularly advise any client who has been considering lipo or lap band or bypass surgery to perhaps try corset waist-training first, at much less expense and risk, with possibly or probably good results in a few short months. Order the corset now to boost progress in figure-shaping: wear it during the dinner hour to control your appetite, encourage you to eat more slowly and take smaller bites, and eventually, disappear hunger which often defeats diets and our best intentions to get healthy.

If you wish further details on permanent body reshaping, please order our Corset Magic waist-training book, and consider enrolling in our three-month coaching program, where we had one client go from 335 pounds to 285 pounds, and drop 5" off her waistline. Minor, healthy lifestyle changes will be taught and reinforced so that these changes remain after training is completed.

In sum, fitting full figures requires care to obtain proper measurements, and the addition of a few key features to ensure full-torso control, each at only a modest upcharge:

-- clients with waistlines of 40" and above, if you order an underbust style, then order a muslin to make adjustments to the final perimeter shapes and fit; a muslin is included in all overbust styles at no charge;

-- 1/2" wide boning around the corset;

-- 1/2" wide bone alongside the front busk and alongside the back grommets to smooth the torso and so that bones do to twist and dig in;

-- a stiffer busk, chosen from the following: extra-wide steel busk, wedge busk, or spoon busk, in place of the lighter weight spring steel busk;

-- a short, diagonal bone underarm to ensure sideview is straight and avoids "toothpaste";

-- a stainless steel wide underbone in the flap beneath the busk; this renders the corset super strong and straight- fronted;

-- a rounded bottom perimeter shape for best tummy control;

-- sending jpg images of your torso as shown on our measurement page.
