How to Measure yourself for a Corset or Fashion Garment
Take the following measurements while wearing a light bra and fitted undergarments. Include breast forms or padding if you will be wearing these with your new garment.
Start out standing up straight. You can take these measurements yourself without the aid of another person.
A. Full Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bustline at nipple height. (only required for garments that cover the breasts)
B. Underbust: This is where your lower bra strap wraps around your body. Just under the breasts.
C. Natural Waist: This is typically just above your navel at the narrowest spot, but not always. Measure the area under your ribcage and above your hipbones where most compression is possible.
D. Upper Hip: This is where your upper hip bones are located at the top of your pelvic bone. You can usually feel these on the front sides of your torso, just under your waist.
E. Lower Hip: This area is found about 5-7 inches below your waistline.
F. Torso Length: For this measurement sit straight up in a chair with your back completely straight. Place the end of the measuring tape at your underbust, just to the side under one breast and bring it straight down to the top of your thigh.

How to Choose the Right Size Corset
For most corsets, you’ll want to subtract 3–5 inches from your waist size to determine the corset size. For example, if your natural waist is 30 inches, you would subtract 4 inches and look on the sizing chart and that would give you size 26". You may choose a size 26" or a size 24", depending on your experience and how dramatic you want your cinch to be. Remember that larger figures squish a bit more, so you may want to go with a gap of 5-6" if your natural waist is over 36".
Each of our corsets is shaped differently to accommodate for varied shapes and sizes. We recommend messaging us with any and all questions at the time of ordering so that our fit experts can guide you to the right pattern and size for your body.
