Ways to Style Your Corset

There are so many ways to style your corset, especially with the wide range of fashion trends these days. Corsets are generally considered as a type of lingerie or an undergarment, but some of the products are just too beautiful to hide sometimes, and you should have the freedom to express your style in whichever way you choose. This is where underwear can, and should, become useful as outerwear as well.

  • Of course, we’ll start with the bedroom look. Spice your corset up with a pair of black lace panties and some thigh high stocking, or even one of our popular garter belts. Top it all off with some of your favorite heels, and you’ll have your partner going crazy! It’s your time to bring out your ultimate sexy, ladies!
  • Waist training is also very popular way of using the corset as an undergarment, for that flattering hourglass figure. You can easily hide this garment under everyday loose-fitting clothes, helping you feel a little more confident in your own skin. Vintage wearers can, too, find these garments useful in their fitted bodice and natural waistline shaped dresses.
  • Now that we have the basic look of the corset covered, let’s play around with showing it off in public! You can turn your garment into the main feature of your outfit by under-dressing the rest of your attire. Try pairing it up with a pair of jeans and creating more attention to your desirable top. You obviously want to be sure that this is an overbust styled corset so your girls are appropriately covered, and by all means looking totally fab!
  • Now, if your goal isn’t to stand out too much, it’s always an option to team it up with a pair of high-waisted trousers for a stunning look for more of a classy jumpsuit. This can also work with a high-waisted pencil skirt for the look of a dress, and so very seductive!
  • If you’re wanting a little more coverage for your shoulders or arms, add a cute cardigan for a toned down, girly look and it’s more useful for an everyday wearer. It also looks stunning under a suit or jacket, adding a perfect feminine touch to your not so girly-girl!
  • Any soon to be brides out there?! Corsets are perfect for weddings! Bridal gowns with corset-inspired bodices are very common for cinching in the waist and having a beautiful and romantic lace-up back. Some women choose to wear the garment under the dress, but that also depends on how easy it would be to hide it under the many style of gowns there are. An alternative way to wear it as a dress, is to pair the overbust corset, in place of the bodice, with a full Cinderella skirt and there you have a gorgeous wedding gown!
  • The Steampunk fashion is also an ongoing popularity in corsetry. This look dates back to the Victorian Era in the 19th century where women typically featured steam-powered machinery. This style is most drastic at Steampunk conventions worldwide, so look around in your area if this sounds like an interest to you!

So, again, no need to hide that beautiful garment. Show it off and express yourself in your own way!

Until next time, Happy Corseting!

Thinking About Sleeping in Your Corset? Here’s Some Tips!

A common question I get asked is whether it’s recommended to sleep in a corset or not. If your intention is to waist train, then my answer would be YES! Sleeping in your corset is an excellent way to accelerate your goals, literally because your training while you’re sleeping! Some people may have daily routines that may interfere with their ability of wearing a corset, and being able to wear one at night allows these women to waist train. An important thing to remember though, is that not all women are the same! Everyone has their own rate of progress, so we have listed a few tips here before you consider taking your waist training to bed.

Before you decide to wear your corset to bed, you want to avoid eating late so you don’t feel so bloated to the point where it’s uncomfortable to even wear the garment. It’s also essential to settle in and get comfortable in your corset before you lie down for bed, so we suggest wearing it an hour or so before to make sure it’s laced appropriately to your comfort for a good nights sleep. It may also be helpful to keep a glass of water next to your bed to stay cool and hydrated.

It’s extremely important to keep the corset comfortable on the body and not too tight so you can breathe soundly during your sleep. It’s just like when your first start wearing your corset, you’re not used to the compression of your midsection, and you gradually need to ease into it according to your level of comfort. By nature, we all use our diaphragm to breathe- and the feeling of ‘not being able to breathe’ is caused by the restriction of the diaphragm expansion. The key waist training in your sleep is to discipline yourself, and change the way you breathe in your corset as a more natural response.

The norm for tight lacing is chest breathing, which may take much time, patience, and practice to get used to this new method of breathing. You want to focus on changing your breathing from the low position of the diaphragm to high in the chest for living and sleeping well in your corset. It’s common that if you train yourself at something, you’ll eventually get better at it; so if you train for chest breathing during the days, then it will obviously be much easier to adjust to it! Remember, it’s most important to be patient with this change in your breathing habits, but soon enough your body will adapt. That’s exactly what this concept is about- making a new natural state of being with what we impose our bodies to do! Dedication and discipline will most definitely bring out these changes to transform your body in exactly what YOU want it to be.

Until next time, sleep tight!

Some Advantages and Considerations When Purchasing A Corset

Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Tips on Transforming Your Dream Body

A huge mistake that we’re all guilty of making that we wish to have someone else’s perfect body. We’re constantly looking at magazines and not realizing that with today’s photoshop artists, they actually help make their bodies look that way. In actuality, we need to follow some simple advice to seek your own best body. Instead of trying to look like someone else, you want to reasonably pursue your best body and be proud of who you are!

1. Eat Right & Drink lots of Fluids

Ladies, whoever said that skipping meals and starving yourself was the way to go, was wrong. Crash diets can send your body into starvation mode leaving you with no energy to get through the day. You want to eat regularly, about 4-5 small meals a day while emphasizing in lean meats, vegetables, some fresh fruits, healthy fats, and an appropriate amount of good carbs. Also, don’t think the occasional treat will ruin your diet, once you’re filled up on protein and vegetables, feel free to add your favorite sweet for dessert! As for fluids, drink more so it can help keep you from being hungry!

2. Target Fat Loss

I’m not talkin’ that you have to completely go bust your butt in the gym. Cardio is a great way to lose fat, but with cardio alone you won’t get your dream body. The problem with cardio for fat loss is that the more you do, the better you get and the less effective it becomes. To continue the process of getting rid of fat, you need to work the whole body with light weights to see more definition.

3. Time to Tone it Up

Many women who venture into the world of weights think that they should do specialized toning routines for specific areas on the body that they want to improve. This usually results in small isolation exercises done with low weight and a ridiculous amount of reps. You obviously need to begin with lighter weights and work your way up the scale for further definition. Instead of plateauing and staying at the same weight, lower your reps and increase the weight to build more strength and tone without size when you’re ready. The best way to target your “problem spots” is through total body training with hard exercises and good nutrition.

4. Prioritize Your Posture & Minimize Core Training

Of course, I’m going to mention our stunning Waist Training Corsets selection. The corset cinches in at the waist resulting in the most desirable hourglass figure for us woman, being thin and curvy! With waist training, over time your waist can potentially appear smaller once you get on a good routine. You also will see quite the improvement in your posture when wearing a corset as its steel boning prevents your from doing any bending.

Being Healthy Leads to Happiness

It’s an obvious statement when we say that the most important ingredient to being your best self and living your best life… is you. You do it for yourself. Your body is your temple and sometimes we get too busy to take care of ourselves, we run out of the time and energy. It’s funny though, the only way to give yourself more energy is to nurture yourself: your mind, body, and soul.

“#1 Health Rule: Give yourself permission to be healthy… Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we’re scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don’t have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list.”- Michelle Obama

I understand we all have different priorities, but what a difference it can make when you can get some time to yourself, doing something your mind and body enjoy doing. Do yourself a favor, unearth yourself from your busy schedules and every day demands. Listen to your body, what do you feel it needs at this moment? If you need to be refreshed, then rest; if you need more energy, then move; do you need to clear your head or maybe just need some silence, then take a break and get some fresh air. Most often, it’s our daily routines that get in the way preventing us from having time for self-care. Try and work it in to your daily grind and let yourself seek balance to feel happy, healthy, and have the ability to find your own personal space. It all starts with your attitude, so look forward to the positive change you’re trying to make in your life and it WILL make a difference.

Focus on being the greatest version of YOU!

Top 10 Benefits of Wearing A Steel Boned Corset

We’ve watched the unique styles and trends of corsets expand throughout centuries on many women, regardless of their shapes and sizes. With the different styles at an ultimate high, it’s important to become educated when you want to purchase a good quality steel boned corset. Many retailers sell corsets that may be misconstrued as a steel boned corset, but not all corsets necessarily have the same benefits.

Our Fashion Corsets, for instance, are plastic boning corsets and are not recommended to wear every day or in place of waist training because they bend out of shape frequently. These particular corsets are affordable at a low cost, for the benefit of a fashion statements and to feel confident and sexy. The Authentic Steel Boned Corsets, however, are higher quality corsets used for many beneficial purposes, but most popular for holding in your midsection and breasts for that flattering hourglass figure. The steel boning throughout the corset helps maintain its shape and the layers of fabric make it more reliable for every day use. These styles range in lengths and fabrics, and are most popular for the unique Victorian Era style known as Steampunk Corsets, and of course the double-steel boned Waist Training Corset, which is used to trim down your waist into the shape of the corset.

So are you stuck trying to decide if the talk is true, and a steel boned corset is really what you’re looking for? Here are some top beneficial reasons to opt for steel boned corsets:

  • it’s a better quality corset- the steel bones and layers of fabric help maintain the corset shape to prevent bending and last a longer period of time
  • holds in loose skin in the midsection for a slimmer physique
  • can reduce back pain and improve posture dramatically
  • ability to adjust lacing to your desired comfort- comes equipped with a 5-6″ modest panel to cover flesh in the back
  • minimize menstrual cramps by applying pressure on the peritoneal organs
  • use as a weight loss aide- will not allow much expansion of the stomach
  • experience more of an hourglass shape
  • worn to reshape for a more feminized figure- narrow down the waist
  • can be worn under or over clothing
  • can also be worn by men who need back support or slimmer midsection

We hope this information helps you decide if the steel boned corset will be beneficial to your needs!

Thanks for reading!

Summer is Quickly Approaching.. Are You Ready?

How are you feeling with summer being just a month away? Are you feeling confident and ready for the heat, or are you still needing that extra push to feel at your absolute best? It’s the time of the year we all are anxious about, whether it’s your summer vacations you’ve been saving for, a wedding you’ve been dreaming of, beach trips and pool parties while soaking up the sun with your friends, or showing off your hard work and progress in your new bikinis and sundresses you’ve been dying to wear. Summer is the season we strive toward. It’s a sure thing that diet and exercising can help boost your confidence and give you the energy to get through your days, but we all know that also takes a lot of time and motivation, which we all may claim to not have enough of. If this sounds like you, then you might want to try and consider ordering one of our popular Waist Training corsets.

Our selection of Waist Training corsets are used for tight-lacing and waist-reduction, resulting in more of an hourglass figure. Not only does this style corset help you lose inches on your waist, it also helps attain great posture and lower back pain. The double-steel boning in the corsets help maintain a stiff structure which may seem uncomfortable at first, but once the corset is worn in and molded to your body it will contribute to a more comfortable fit.

Which Waist Trainer do I choose?

As the style of Waist Training corsets continues to expand, the harder it may be to choose your perfect one. Our selection includes corsets of different colors, lengths, boning, and fabrics, so it’s important to read the description of the product to make sure it best suits your figure. If this is your first waist trainer, we recommend ordering an underbust corset as it only covers your midsection and is easier to get used to.

Breaking in your new Waist Trainer

It’s important to take your time when starting off with your new waist training corset. With the stiff structure, you will notice a limitation on your movement that may take some getting used to. These corsets are supposed to be very form fitting and tight, but not to the point where you are having trouble breathing. We suggest wearing the corset up to 3-4 hours for the first few days until you begin to notice more of a looser fit, and then exceed the hours based on your preference of comfort. Remember a slow and steady pace, wins the race!

Staying cool during Summer!

As Summer approaches, many think that wearing a Waist Trainer will cause you to sweat more. This can be true, but there are ways to avoid this issue.

  • You have the option of wearing the corset under or over your clothing, whichever you may prefer. To keep cool and avoid sweat stains when wearing it underneath, a liner or thin fabric can be used for a light layer in between the corset and your skin. Breathable fibers are most helpful, and finding a material that will absorb the sweat will keep you more dry. Liners can also keep the dirt, oil, and sweat away for your corset to help keep a fresh feeling.
  • When dealing with sweat, heat, and irritation, using a powder can always be a solution! Powder can help absorb the sweat while acting as a dry lubricant. This option can also be used with or without a liner, although wearing a liner would keep your corset cleaner.
  • Of course, sticking to lighter colors and fabrics will also help during the heat. The neutral colors are friendlier than the darker ones this time of year, unless you’re goal is to sweat even more! Again, we recommend a more breathable fabric. For instance, our cd045 White Cotton waist trainer would be a great choice!

How to Choose the Right Corset

Have you caught yourself stuck in between choosing your perfect corset, or maybe not knowing where to begin? We understand that it can be quite the challenge nowadays when determining which style suits your best interest, so here we’ve provided some recommendations on where to begin with these extravagant variety of undergarments that we have offered for you. A brief understanding in corset history helps us objectify the purpose in these flattering products, and how it has transformed over the past few decades. The corset reached it’s peak in the 19th century during the Victorian Era, where women wore them for an image of elegance and beauty, and have now transitioned back to modern day mainstream where they are popular for being worn for multiple reasons. The expansion of styles have led to new fashion and weight loss trends, including that of fashion corsets, authentic steel-boning corsets, waist training, under/over bust corsets, leather/vinyl corsets, and also plus size corsets to encourage women to flaunt their beautiful figures. Following, we have listed a couple steps on how to discover the perfect corset, for a more confident you!

Sizing and Measurements:

One of the first things needed when purchasing a corset is your measurements to determine the best size for your figure. These measurements are very important, as corsets are more form fitting than a regular t-shirt or pant size that you may usually wear. For both men and women, a bust/chest measurement with cup size, natural waist (2″ above bellybutton), and hip measurements are needed; it’s important to go off your natural measurements when referring to our size chart, so we do not recommend trying to order a size smaller. As you may notice, we do have two separate size charts for our corsets:

  • For the authentic corsets, we suggest taking 4″-6″ off of your natural waist measurement (depending on extra soft tissue) to determine your size. The bust and hip area would open to about 10″ more if needed, and also has a 6″ modest panel for some extra coverage in the back of the corset.
  • Our fashion corsets, however, correspond most to your natural waist and bust measurements and proceed to going off of the size chart.

Choosing Your Style:

  • Fashion Corsets: These corsets are plastic boning corsets, they are not made for cinching in your waist; they are commonly used for fashion or bedroom purposes, to bring out your inner sexy! This style includes a variety of overbust, underbust, leather/vinyl, and plus size corsets at a very low cost!
  • Authentic Steel-Boning Corsets: This collection of corsets are built with 12-24 (depending on style) steel bones that can really slim down your waist when worn. These corsets may vary in styles including our waist training and steampunk corsets, fabric material, and lengths, so it’s important to read the descriptions provided to be sure that the corset fits your best interests.
  • Waist Training Corsets: Our selection of waist trainers is perfect for those who are looking to trim down they’re waist! These styles also range in fabric, boning, lengths, overbust/underbust, and color to best suit your personality. A little FYI, you most likely will be stiff and uncomfortable the first few times wearing your new waist trainer, it’s like breaking in a new pair of shoes! It will eventually mold to your figure once you wear and loosen it up a bit.

    Here we have our popular waist trainer cd045 black/satin being put to good use!

  • Steampunk Corsets: Our popular steampunk corsets are very fashionable and also have potential for waist reduction. This style relates back to the 19th century where they typically featured steam-powered machinery. This collection varies in many styles and magnificent details with extremely great pricing!

We hope that this information may help you get started on purchasing your perfect corset! A stunning corset is an essential part to your undergarment collection, and here at The Fashion Corset Shop, we encourage you to bring out your confidence and inner sexy with our variety of styles at an extremely low price.
