Lacing the Corset

Wearing the Corset Instructions

One should never rush when putting on a corset. Time and care should be taken to gently mold the figure. Proper adjustment of the corset places the body into correct poise and brings out the best lines of the figure. Corsets are delivered with garters attached (if ordered) and laced up the back with two loops located at the waist.

1. Before putting on your corset, loosen the laces so there is a gap of 4-6″.
2. Place the corset around you (preferably over a tank top or slip, not next to bare skin) and fasten the front busk beginning with one of the middle clasps. The label is at the top of the corset and the lace ends are tied in a bow at the bottom.
3. Ensure the corset is properly aligned on the body with the busk running straight down the center front and the waist tape positioned at the smallest part of your waist.

Lace Embrace F.A.Q.

Can I sit/stand/drive/work comfortably in my corset? Will it stand up to wear and tear??

You should think of your corset as a foundation garment which should be comfortable to wear. You wouldn’t wear an uncomfortable bra! If your corset fits you properly, then you should be able to do your day to day activities unhampered. This is includes (but not limited to) breathing, sleeping, sitting, and standing. You should be able to breathe in your corset with no difficulty. You can also eat in your corset, though you may find a reduction in your appetite.
