Our first corset Q&A post is here! We'll be featuring a customer question and our answer every Wednesday starting today.
Our first question comes from Kegan Crafton on Facebook who asks...
Q: What (female) corset would you recommend to males trying to obtain a feminine shape (for crossplayers)?
A: If you're looking to create a super curvy shape, the hourglass silhouette corsets will be the best option; however, you may find that you need to pad out the hip spring (which can work great for costuming and was actually a common practice historically to create the figures of different eras!) since these were designed with cisgender women who typically have wider hips to begin with in mind. If you're looking for a less dramatic shape, the slimmer fit of the gentle silhouette may fit the natural figure of a cisgender man (or athletic woman!) better while still emphasizing the waistline. Since many men have torsos that are a bit longer than a woman's, a regular length underbust or long cut underbust is likely to give the most coverage.
