When reading instructions on how to put your corset on correctly, many instructions go something like this:
"Untie the knot at center back and loosen the corset to its fullest capacity, without undoing the knot"
..? But, uh, I'm sorry, which knot am I not supposed to undo?
Sounds confusing, right? Well, it needn't be.
When the corset is fully laced in its package and you take it out, this is the knot or bow that we are asking you to unfasten:
And then, the knot that we are asking you not to undo, is this one here at the very bottom of the 2 back panels, which you will be able to see when you unclasp and open your corset:
You absolutely have to untie the bow at center back, otherwise no matter how svelte you are, you will never be able to wrap your corset around your waist and as for the knot at the very bottom of the 2 back panels (see 2nd picture), we recommend leaving it fastened to avoid having the corset's lacing unravel.
Stay laced, corset lovers! x
