I'M GOING TO LOSE WEIGHT; WHEN SHOULD I ORDER?
[READ ONLY PAGE. Updated 8/3/18]
Why wait to
experience corset magic?
A custom corset will likely
fit you for many, many years to come, for the following
1. YOUR CORSET COMES WITH A BACK GAP
TO ACCOMMODATE SOME WEIGHT LOSS.
Corsets are initially ordered with a "desired waist
reduction." That means the waist measurement under
your corset when you completely close it in back,
although you never need do so. A common desired waist
reduction for slim individuals is four inches, but
individuals having waistlines of 30 or more inches, who
are plastic in the middle, or who have prior corseting
experience, can usually lace down five to seven or
more inches. We will exercise our best professional
judgment in advising you about this matter. Initially we
set a desired waist reduction then ask you to
update horizontal rib cage, snug waist, and derriere
measurements just before your corset pattern is made and
fabric cut, typically about two to three months after your
order. That way a new corset will be up-to-date and
ready to wear for a good long time when we deliver it to
2. YOU WILL UPDATE YOUR MEASUREMENTS:
We ask you to mark your calendar, and then approximately
one month into the process, to update your basic
measurements. That lets us produce a corset suitably
tight and well-fitting, giving you more wearing time
before it might become a comfy corset or time to order
your next size down.
3. YOUR GOAL IS TO EXTEND COMFY HOURS OF WEAR
NOT LACE CLOSED AND GIVE UP YOUR CORSET: Your goal for either
temporary or permanent figure shaping and waist
training should be to close the corset gap in back fully,
then wear the corset for hours and hours at a time--
comfortably. That will take
time, not just weeks. It sometimes requires more than a
number of months. It is just not effective or impressive
for permanent body reshaping or weight loss to lace down quickly and
wear your corset for only ten minutes, then have to
loosen or take it off.
6. YOU DON'T WANT TO OVER-REACH AND ORDER
A CORSET TO CLOSE TOO TIGHTLY: If you order
too much of a waist reduction when the corset closes in
back, because you either overestimate your ability to lace
down or you expect to lose weight before you receive it
but do not,
then you risk the following difficulty. You may not be
able to close the corset down sufficiently to avoid the
back boning from twisting in its casings (see image)
and digging into your back in a very uncomfortable,
even painful way. Moderation is the key.
Even considering the above points it is
virtually impossible to determine how any given
"take to" waist restriction. Personal reactions
to corseting, a rather unusual way of dressing, just
cannot be predicted with certainty,
although we will always use our considerable experience
to advise you.
