CORSETS - FULL FIGURES
[Updated 3/15/15]


INTRODUCTION

In our opinion, corsets look best on voluptuous figures because:

  • For women, corsets emphasize curves and
  • more effectively show off the waistline;
  • Portly gentlemen can improve the fit of business wear, and
  • enhance their posture, whether they desire a man's stays, or are transgendered.

ROMANTASY's corsetieres specialize in fitting curvy ladies and gentlemen in top quality "cuddly-sized" corsetry.

We have successfully produced a corset for a client having a 60-inch waistline.

Not only do we accommodate robust waistlines, we can readily contour corset bodices to accommodate full bosoms with an underwire style ( "The Rose" corset by Jill provides an example), or with a standard, vertically-boned corset. Either one provides excellent support. We have successfully produced a corset for a client with a 58-inch bosom measurement.


A WEALTH OF CORSET ARTISTRY FOR ANY FIGURE

Regina is one of our lovely full-figured clients who over several years has ordered a number of corsets from our team. She is pictured on the left in our dramatic dragon-applique corset. This stunning corset was designed by her husband Peter, and produced by Sharon McCoy Morgan/Altered Tyme Corsetry for ROMANTASY.

Note the excellent fit and torso support provided to Regina and other clients pictured in our gallery of full figure clients wearing gorgeous overbust or underbust styles.


THE BEST CORSET STYLE

Many clients begin with an underbust corset 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 to make!


THE BEST TIME TO ORDER

We recommend that a full-figure customer not wait to order even if he or she is on a diet or in a workout program. 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:


  1. A muslin - clients ordering an underbust style for waistlines of 40" and above, might order a muslin to test and allow adjustments before the final corset is produced. A muslin is included in all overbust styles at no charge.
  2. One-half inch boning in place of standard 1/4" boning.
  3. An extra one-half inch bone alongside the front busk and alongside the back grommets to smooth the torso and so that bones do to twist and dig in.
  4. A stiffer front busk, chosen from the following: extra-wide steel busk, wedge busk, or spoon busk, in place of the lighter-weight spring steel busk.
  5. 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.
  6. A stainless-steel wide underbone in the flap beneath the busk; this renders the corset super strong and straight- fronted.
  7. A rounded bottom perimeter shape for best tummy control.

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 extended email or Skype service to watch you measure or to fit your muslin.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

"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 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." Christen, pictured right (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)


"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)
