Sizing Charts & How to Size Yourself
In order for corsets to cinch in your waist your corset size will be smaller than your natural waist measurement. The number of your corset size indicates the number of inches the corset measures at its smallest point, the waist line.
Because corset sizing is so different from the way most modern clothes are sized, you'll need to take some measurements to determine which size will fit you the best. Ready to get sized? Grab a measuring tape and play the video below, or read our blog Measurements: A Step-by-Step Guide.
Now that you’ve watched our sizing video or read our blog, and you have your measurements, it's time to find your corset size.
Find your natural waist measurement on the chart, find the silhouette you have chosen and find the corset size for that particular silhouette. Every silhouette has a different size metric, make sure you use the correct size for the silhouette you are ordering.
