THE BEST CORSET STYLE
Many clients begin with an
style, or sometimes the longline Edwardian style,
until they reshape their figure, then return for
an overbust style as a reward.
However, to relieve pressure
on tender shoulders, some clients prefer
to begin with an overbust style which supports
the lower back and
obviates the need to wear a brassiere. The choice is yours
THE BEST TIME TO ORDER
We recommend that a full-figure customer
to order even if he or she is on a diet or in a
We advise any client who has
been considering liposuction, lap band, or gastric bypass
surgery to first consider
corset waist-training, at much less expense
and risk, with
possibly or probably good results in a few short months.
Many order their corset now to boost progress forward
with exercise programs, and good nutrition. That beneficial
result or corseting develops for most clients
because hunger is a problem that defeats
many diets and our
best intentions. Simply wear your corset
as you cook or dine to control your portions and appetite.
In an amazingly short time period hunger usually diminishes
and even disappears.
HOW TO ACHIEVE THE BEST FIT, EVEN LONG-DISTANCE
A well-fitted, comfortable quality corset requires care
to obtain the proper
measurements. We will provide individualized,
personal assistance regarding measurements.
You may wish to consider the addition of a few key
features to ensure
full-torso control, each at only a modest upcharge:
A muslin - clients ordering an underbust style for
waistlines of 40" and above,
muslin to test and allow adjustments
before the final corset is produced. A muslin is included in all overbust
styles at no charge.
- One-half inch boning in place of standard 1/4"
- An extra one-half inch bone alongside the front busk
the back grommets to smooth the torso and
so that bones do to twist and dig in.
- A stiffer front
chosen from the following: extra-wide steel busk, wedge busk, or
spoon busk, in place of the lighter-weight spring steel
- A short, diagonal bone placed a the side of the corset bodice to ensure that the
sideview is straight and avoids "toothpaste" of unsightly
flesh spilling over the edge of the corset.
- A stainless-steel wide underbone in the flap beneath the
busk; this renders the corset super strong and straight-
- A rounded bottom
perimeter shape for best tummy
We also recommend that you take advantage of our service
of review of confidential jpg images of the torso-measuring
process as shown on our
measurement page. You may also order our
email or Skype service to watch you measure or
to fit your muslin.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
"I wore my overbust corset by
from the time
I saw you until the end of the night, so about 14 hours.
It was so comfortable then and also beneath my Maid of
Honor gown at my friend's wedding. I pretty much forgot I had
it on. Thank you again for all your help."

"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?"
"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)
