Getting to Know Your Corset
~ While wearing a corset, you should enjoy excellent posture and feel a pleasant ‘hugging’ sensation ~
Congratulations! You have just joined a very special group of individuals who recognize and appreciate the elegance of corsetry. You will enjoy many days of bliss while wearing your new corset. To maximize the pleasure of your experience, please consider the following:
On no account should you try to lace the corset closed or even very tightly on the first several occasions. As you lace down, measure your waist to see that is has not been reduced more than 1-inch the first few times you wear it. The corset needs some ‘breaking in time’. Tight lacing too soon, may cause discomfort and negative feelings towards the corset.
The Care of the Corset
The CORSET is so intimate an article of a woman’s apparel and plays so tremendous a part in the sum total of her physical, mental and moral well-being, which even the cheapest corset is well worth a little care. To begin with, it is the dearest kind of economy, even to the woman of moderate means, to have but one pair of corsets. Corsets, like shoes or any other article of woman’s wear, should be changed frequently and worn to suit occasions. Worn constantly from morning till night, day in and day out, a corset is bound to lose its shape, and become unpleasantly soiled. Moreover the body should be rested by changing the corset at least twice a day; in this way there will be comfort for the wearer and prolonged usefulness for the corset.

I just wanted to thank you for spending time fitting and educating me on my new corset. I love it already and it feels right for me! I wore it about 5 hours yesterday and it felt very comfortable. I also put it on later last night to show my wife and it went on easily thanks to your lessons. Thank you again for your kindness and thoughtfulness!Patty
Thank you so much for my gorgeous Victorian over bust corset! Having worn other corsets before, I’ve never believed they could ever be comfortable, or donned without the assistance of at least one other person. With minimum struggle I managed to put mine on and get comfy in it… and now I don’t want to take it off. Sign me a new addict!Morag
I was reflecting on my experience with you today, and I just thought I’d share my thoughts with you. First Of all, I felt very comfortable talking to you about corsets. Second, you are very trans-gendered friendly, so now when all my girlfriends ask me where I got the beautiful corset, I can, and will, refer them directly to you! All in all, a very positive experience.Gabriella
