HEALTH & SAFETY INFORMATION
General Safety Advice
For those of you with medical conditions please consult your Doctor before tight lacing your corset.
Waist Training is not suitable for teenagers or adults who are still developing.
Keep garments out of the reach of children, although these corsets are manufactured to a very high standard they are made from small components which over time may come loose. The faux crystals are glue on, lacing can be removed and eyelets may come loose. These all pose a choking hazard for children, some of the materials that the corsets are made from are flammable; do not smoke in the corset.
Satin polyester can be an irritant, for people with sensitive skin we strongly recommend you purchase a garment with a cotton lining. If you notice any form of rash or change in skin colour then please remove the garment straight away and consult a doctor.
Waist Training – Sensible Advice for safe Waist Reduction
What is waist training? Well, waist training is the process of permanently altering your figure by wearing heavy laced corsets for long periods of time (usually over the course of many months). Although our “Waist Taming” & “Expert Waist Training” garments are suitable for Waist Training, please be aware that there are can be serious side effects to the process for the uninitiated.
Our corsets come from a leading expert on the design & development of Waist Training Corsets but we always advise customers considering Waist Training to speak to a Medical Professional before beginning. We are not experts on your health, we do not have access to your medical history and we are not medically qualified to give such advice.
This is your body we are talking about, we want you to enjoy successful results, but not at the cost of your wellbeing. Our team is here to help you select the perfect fitting corset which is most suitable for your requirements. It would be irresponsible to give advice on Waist Training practices and techniques, we are simply not qualified. If interested in the process of Waist Training we always recommend you take your corset to your Doctor or GP and explain to them exactly what you are looking to achieve. They know your medical history and are there to monitor you throughout the process.
Be smart, do your research, understand the risks, make sure you are supervised.
Waist Reduction Disguise Rating Comfort Rating
The Waist Reduction rating is the maximum waist reduction achievable of the corset. Just because a corset is rated to a 4" or 5" waist reduction doesn't mean you have to wear them that tightly, you have the choice between comfort & control The Disguise Rating is how invisible a corset is underneath clothing, relative to the other designs available in our collections The Comfort Rating is how comfortable your corset will be. Some fabrics are less suited to longer periods of wear and more theatrical designs can become heavy if wearing all day.
0" Waist Reduction - Garments Designed for aesthetics only, lingerie weight pieces 0-4 Disguise Rating - Garments designed as outerwear, these corsets will be embellished with design features which will obviously interrupt the silhouette if worn underneath clothing 0-5 Comfort Rating - We do not sell anything that is uncomfortable if your corset is uncomfortable you may have a pattern which isn't suitable for your body shape, or you may be wearing the garment incorrectly.
1-2" Waist Reduction Respectable waist reduction, often Fashion Tops & Latex/Compression wear, body smoothing garments for a more toned silhouette, not suitable for tight lacing 5-6 Disguise Rating - Garments which ideally will be used for outerwear. Lighter weight corsets & sleek designs often with sleeves, not impossible to disguise under clothing but additional design features can make it trickier than need be 6 Comfort Rating - Comfortable for shorter periods of time, likely to be latex or another non-breathable fabric which you can leave you clammy after sustained wear.
3-4" Waist Reduction - Traditional Corset designed for serious waist reduction - Improved posture & superior bust support, comfortable alternative to a bra 7-8 Disguise Rating - Designed to be worn under looser clothing, these corsets may be Overbust patterns, have cord lacing or include hip panels 7-8 Comfort Rating - Underbust patterns in Man-made fibers or overbust patterns in more breathable fabrics. Suitable for all-day wear but if comfort is your priority there are more comfortable options available. Less advanced patterns which do not have hip gores/panels incorporated may feature.
5" Waist Reduction - Ultimate waist reduction, recommended for tight lacing & regular corset wearers 9 Disguise Rating - Often functional underbust designs, or sleek/classic corsets with flat ribbon lacing 9 Comfort Rating - Primarily Cotton Underbust corsets, these designs are breathable and less hot/heavy than their Overbust counterparts

HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF
FINDING THE RIGHT CORSET
OUR RATINGS EXPLAINED
Wear a comfortable, good-fitting, and supportive bra with no push-up or padding.
Do not measure over the clothing.
Stand straight but relaxed with your feet slightly apart. Do not twist, slouch or extend
your torso. This will affect your measurements.
Use a tailoring measure tape; ensure it is snug without being too tight.
For more accurate measures ask a friend or use a full-length mirror.
Measure around the fullest part of your bust, which is usually your nipples and around your back.
Measure all around the narrowest part of your waist below your rib cage. To find the narrowest part below your ribs, lean from side to side and place your finger where your torso is bending.
To locate where to measure your hip, lift your leg when standing and feel with your finger where the bone articulates into the pelvis. It is close to the fullest part of your hip and the tape measure should go around the top of your bottom. Do not measure your high hip.
YOUR TORSO LENGTH
This is a vertical body measurement. Whilst standing measure straight down from your underbust to the same hip articulation point where the bone articulates into the pelvis. Ensure that your back is straight. You can also do this measurement when seated on a hard chair with a straight back and good posture to double-check the measurement. Measure straight down from your underbust to the same articulation point where the crease is at your lap. Compare your torso length with the Princess / Bust seam length of your corset. If the corset Princess / Bust seam length is too long it may be uncomfortable when seated and you may need to choose a style suitable for a shorter torso. For an Overbust Corset, the Bust seam length can give you an idea of how much bust coverage that you should get with a specific neckline.
