Tie your corset loosely and wear it for only two hours once a time. As the corset blends into your figure, start tightening your clothes, tying your laces tighter each time when you daily wear corset.

3. Tighten carefully. If your corset hurts your waist or makes it hard to breathe, it's lace-up too tight. While a corset can tighten your waist, it shouldn't be painful to wear. Wearing a corset that is too small or too tight can damage your torso. When tightening your corset, always start loose and work your way up over time.

Wrap the corset around yourself. First close the front. You may need to make some adjustments. You should be able to close the front bust fairly easily, although some resistance is good. You shouldn't need to inhale hard to get it to close. Some people like having to pull hard to get the front closed. Others believe that making the rear looser makes it easier to close the front.
