Corsets and Posture

Corset Wearing and Posture

If you're anything like me, you're a bit lazy with your posture and tend to slouch a bit. Funning how I don't do it when wearing a steel boned corset though.

For those more experienced to corsets, our secret confidence boost lays hidden under our clothing to cinch, lift, enhance, and support on a night out. That's not to say women (and men) don't wear corsets during the day, many do, I however don't.

Anyway... I digressed. We know all the feeling of carrying oneself effortlessly, and people around us can’t help but notice. In a society where more and more people suffer from depression, confidence is often lost. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), some 350 million people worldwide suffer from depression. Sometimes improving diet and exercise alone aren’t sufficient enough in changing how we feel on a daily basis. In order to build up a healthy mindset and a positive outlook on life, it can all start with improving our posture. It’s time to share the secret of corset-lacing with our friends and family in hopes it may improve their own outlook on life. I know if I look in a mirror and like what I see, it give me an immediate confidence boost.

My slouching makes me look bigger that what I am too. When I stand up tall and straight, I swear I lose 2" right away. Not to mention the inches a corset gets rid of too!

Corsets, Posture AND Confidence

Posture and confidence

With the knowledge that corsets force the body to stand up straight, next comes the link of posture to confidence. Posture has been proven to boost confidence, which greatly improves how people see and notice you.

When your shoulders are back, you’re standing in “military fashion”, completely composed. When you look taller and walk with purpose, even if you are not a confident person, you look the part. Not only will people notice a difference in your appearance, how you view yourself will also change. 

Posture has been said to improve the brain’s function, which benefits your mood and memory levels. Combined benefits lead to a happier, positive outlook on life. This will help alleviate symptoms of depression, which is often deeply rooted in the mindset that things can’t or won’t get better. When there is light at the end of the tunnel, it gives us a desire to make other changes in our lives for our own betterment. There are many resources in books and online detailing the benefits of posture that I encourage you to look into!
