How To Measure For a Steel Boned Corset

Measuring For a Corset

Measuring for a steel boned corset is something you will want to get right the first time. So please do take the time to read this if you're new to steel boned corsets.

Our steel boned corsets go by waist measurement first and foremost, NOT your bust.

You'll need a tape measure to hand and if you haven't got one, pop along to a shop and buy one.

Measure (not over clothes) where your waist dips in at the side and NO breathing in and measure in Inches. This will give you your Natural Waist measurement. Based on that measurement you'll order your corset size.


If your natural waist is 34", you'll order a corset size 30". YES you do order smaller than your natural waist, otherwise the corset will simply drop off you and not pull you in.


Your bust Must be bigger than your natural waist if you'd like to fill an overbust corset. Gentlemen, i'd suggest padding here.

Hips: If you have large hips or are pear shaped, a gored hipped corset might just be perfect for you. The corset won't dig into your hips this way.

Happy Shopping - Go get your sexy on.
