What is a Corset?
A corset is one of the unique fashion accessories constructed from a strong and flexible fabric and sometimes PVC that’s been reinforced using steel boning (these are flexible steel rods). These boned steel rods offer the strength needed to cinch the wearer’s waist and to accentuate the curve of the bustline and hips.
Usually, corsets are put on securely by fastening the front busk, which is a unique type of hardware, the corset made up of two steel says, one that has metal loops, that you lace up the back. A corset is designed to fit around the wearer’s midsection and can be either “underbust” or “overbust.” Depending on a person’s style, the corset can be worn over or under the clothes. Today, corsets are offered in several styles that are designed to fit various body types including plus size.
Who Should Wear a Corset?
A steel bone corset can be worn for several reasons and in an array of situations. Some women opt to wear them as a fashion statement or to create a “sexy costume” or even for a wedding. Others wear the corset to help with posture and back support. The majority of women who wear corsets, though, wear them because they like the sexy look they provide for their body, whether you are a plus size the corset guarantee the classic hourglass shape.
Is Wearing a Corset Dangerous or Unhealthy?
Wearing a corset isn’t dangerous as long as a person uses the “safe and sane” corset practices. This includes finding a corset that fits the person’s body type. A good way to know if the corset is fit properly is to consider this question – “does wearing the corset cause pain?” If the answer is “yes,” it’s best to take it off or at least loosen it. The adage, no pain, no gain, doesn’t apply here.
Corsets are safe when they are worn properly, but they can also be beneficial in correcting posture and controlling back pain.
How Do Corsets Work
When the corset is worn properly, it offers the hourglass figure to the wearer’s body. These are also called “waist trainers,” and can provide semi-permanent results as time passes by helping to move the ribs, and the organs shift temporarily while the corset is being worn. In some situations, corsets can lead to weight loss because it acts as an external LAP band, which encourages a person to eat smaller quantities.
What’s the Benefit of the Steel Boning?
Corsets that don’t have steel boning aren’t really corsets. Why? That’s because the steel boning is needed to cinch the waist. Corsets that use plastic boning or PVC, which is cheaper, for fashion or looks, will burst at the seams if a wearer attempts to tighten it on the longlines.
Getting the Right Fit
Before being able to show off the fierceness within, it’s necessary to get a corset that fits properly. The typically, steel boned corset will be four inches less than a woman’s natural waist measurement. If a person has a 28-inch waist naturally, they need to purchase a 24-inch corset.
If a woman is buying a leather corset for themselves, they need to be honest with their measurements. A quality corset isn’t going to create any unsightly bulges or bumps. It should feel comfortable while it’s being worn, providing support without squashing any parts. Women should never try to choose a smaller size than what’s needed for vanity’s sake. It won’t be as flattering as one that fits properly.
If a person is purchasing a corset as a gift for a friend or family member, it’s a good idea to consult with the person it’s being purchased from prior to making the purchase. To avoid ruining the surprise, talk with someone close to the recipient.
A corset that’s constructed from a quality pattern is much more comfortable than many people realize. Wearing one for the first time is a new and unusual sensation, but most people can quickly become comfortable with this feeling. Quality garments are a growing trend that women are even replacing bras for.
Regardless of the type of finishing fabric used for the construction of a corset, a standard quality corset needs to have a breathable lining. This is the only fabric that is going to be against the skin while the corset is on, unless a person wears the corset over a shirt or blouse.
Common Corset Materials
Finding the proper fit for a corset is crucial; however, there’s another important consideration – the material the corset is made of. All the fabrics discussed here are quality, but they each have pros and cons, too. Some of the most common materials corsets are available in include:
Satin: If a wearer wants to put their corset under their clothes, satin is a good option. Clothing will glide over this material with ease and no clinging will occur.
Mesh: This is a breathable and lightweight material that’s easy to wear and comfortable both over and under clothing. It can be worn during the summer, without causing the wearer to become too hot, and it provides a quality silhouette because there isn’t any bulk.
Cotton: For those who prefer casual comfort, then cotton is the best option. While cotton takes longer to get the “broken in” feel, once it is, it’s as easy and comfortable to wear as a favorite pair of blue jeans. However, wearing a cotton corset under other clothing is challenging because the material is thicker.
Brocade: Brocade is a thick, gorgeous, polyester blend that feels like an upholstery or tapestry fabric. It’s more elegant than plain fabric and it can add something “extra” to any outfit. Since it is a thicker, and woven fabric, it’s going to take more uses to be as comfortable as thinner fabric. However, after it’s broken it, it’s going to be a classy and comfortable addition to any wardrobe.
Leather: One of the most popular materials that corsets are available in today is leather. Despite what many people think, the leather typically used for corsets isn’t stiff and rigid. While clothes won’t cling to the fabric, it does have more bulk than other materials. It’s best to wear leather corsets over clothing to show it off. Leather isn’t recommended for daily waist training either, as it’s a natural skin and will stretch out as time passes.
Corsets are designed with several fasteners for securing or tightening it around the wearer’s waist. The most common and best option is the front split steel busk. With this, there’s one side that has loops or hooks, and the other that has pins or nobs. This is the most durable, sturdiest, and fastest way to secure any corset. There are also corsets designed with a zipper, which is common for reversible corsets, but this option isn’t as durable as the others. There are also corsets that use hook and eye closures, which are more discreet than the busks, but they aren’t as strong, and they take a long time to fully close.
