Signs you need to size down your corset

You may have been wearing the same corset size for years and quite simply gotten 'comfortable' in your corset. That's only natural, a bit like your favourite pair of jeans, you just don't want to get rid of them. There are a few reasons you may want to size down your corset, here is my opinion on when you should go the next size down.

Your corset laces all the way up

There should always be some space at the back when lacing up your corset, it means there's room for adjustments and such. All my corsets have a modesty panel at the back, so no flesh or clothing underneath your corset will be visible. When this gap disappears, it's time to size down your corset. There certainly shouldn't be overlap! This may even cause damage to your corset, which I know you won't want. A steel boned corset is an investment, continue to look after it.

Your corset doesn't feel tight

If the compression doesn't feel as tight as it should or used to, then it might be time to size down and season a new corset. Especially if you want to achieve a silhouette figure, which is why most people start wearing a corset. Naturally, if you don't want to wear your corset too tightly, then this is fine. Remember, this is fine, there is no pressure to order a new corset, I just want to give you all the facts.

You've lost weight

This is a sure sign that you'll need a new corset size. Your body shape has changed and you'll need to re-measure. I know it sounds like a really obvious reason to buy a new corset, but you'd be surprised with how many people continue to wear their old corsets. You'll want to new corset to mould to your new smelt figure.
