For those who are new to corsets, the process of sifting through tons of websites trying to determine which retailers truly deliver the quality they promise, can be daunting to say the least.
So, I've gone ahead and compiled a list of things to look out for. This list will cover what to look for and also which traits are clear indicators that you should consider looking elsewhere.
Did you know that the more toned your core is (i.e. the less fat you have around your belly), the more likely you are to require a size up when selecting your corset?
It is not at all uncommon for people out there to not have a measuring tape handy, which without a doubt is a very important (if not the MOST important) tool when it comes to figuring out which size corset is right for you.
So, don't ask me how I didn't think of this or discover it sooner, but I have come across a printable measuring tape!

Love Of Corsets
There are a couple of common myths that deserve to be debunked when it comes to determining whether or not your corset is in fact a steel boned corset.
Myth #1: Only acrylic bones are white in color
Not so! Flat steel bones as well as busk from closures are frequently coated in a white finishing.
Myth #2: If the boning feels too flexible, it must be acrylic
Again, this couldn't be farther from the truth! Yes indeed, acrylic bones are not as rigid as steel bones. This is a major reason why fashion corsets (generally made with acrylic bones) are not suited for waist training and do not promise the same sort of waist reduction that a steel boned corset can offer. If you were to try and add too much tension to a fashion corset by lacing it up as tight as it can go, the bones will most likely bend or snap completely and this is normally not something that can be repaired, unless you remove the damaged bone and insert a new one.
Though I've never been much of a lover of trends, I think its fair to say that recently waist-training has become relatively trendy and for that, I couldn't be more happy! Not only do I love to waist train myself, but I also just love love love talking about it. I could seriously go on forever!
But here is something that I see quite often and its something of a myth that I want to debunk for all those new to waist training: you don't need to purchase a waist training corset in order to waist train.
The "corset diet" has gained a considerable amount of attention lately, and as a result I find it virtually impossible to not address the topic.
Here is where I find myself at a crossroads:
Wife, mother workaholic & entrepreneur. I do my best to bring you regular content via this blog, but as you can see from my archives, it doesn't always work out that way (see above, where I mention the whole "mother" thing).
