How to Measure Corset Size ?

Here is a guide to measuring yourself for a corset plus size:

  1. First of all, make sure you stand up straight.
  2. Then pick up a fabric measuring tape or a marked string.
  3. Bust: wear a non-padded bra and measure the fullest part of your breasts. (You don’t have to measure your bust if you order the underbust corset. Measure your bust only when you need to choose a overbust corset.)
  4. Underbust: measure around the rib cage where your bra cage where your bra line is.
  5. Waist: your waist is between your hip bones and the bottom of your rib cage. Your body may curve in slightly. Natural Waist: Measure at the smallest part of your waist usually right above your belly button.
  6. Hips: measure where your hip bones are, not your butt or upper things.
  7. Torso: It’s best to start off sitting straight up in a chair with your back completely straight. You’ll then want to place the end of the measuring tape at your underbust line and bring it down to the top of your thigh.

If your waist measurement is bigger than your bust, consider underbust corset before trying an overbust corset, or stick to underbust corset belt for best possible look and most comfortable wear.

Not each corset need your torso length measured, but if you have a small torso, it is important to make sure you measure this size so that your corset will fit you as closely as possible. If the torso length of the corset is too long, it will move up when you sit down and even prevent you from sitting down. When taking this measurement, consider where you want the bottom of your corset top to stop when you sit down.

Perfect fit makes perfect corset. A key step in ordering corset top for women is make sure the corset size fits your body the best.
