What We Love About Corsets
Regardless of the reasons, buying a corset is a wee bit more involved than say buying a pair of your favorite panties straight off the rack.
In this guide, we'll share some valuable tips on how to find a plus size corset that you'll look forward to wearing and sharing.
When shopping for corsets, you'll quickly see there are a multitude of different features and options that may seem complicated at first glance.
One of the first things to decide is what kind of corset you want.
There are two main types of corsets - “Overbust” and “Underbust”.
The main differences between them?
The more traditional “Overbust” styles extend over the breasts, and the "Underbust” styles do not.
If you are searching for formal lingerie, that's more rigid, you'll likely benefit from the classic “Overbust” plus size corset.
If, you're interested in less restrictive lingerie that is more comfortable and gives you freedom of movement, you'll probably prefer the “Underbust” style.
If, you're wanting a curvy, hourglass waistline, and or if you would like extra back support, both styles of plus size corset shapewear will do just fine.
Once you've chosen the style that you want, the next step is choosing the length. Yes, there are different corset lengths.
It is easy to assume there is only one basic cookie-cutter length and style, and many make the mistake of choosing a length based on height.
The next step is to make sure that you have accurate bra measurements. This only applies to "Overbust" styles and will help you find the best size and fit.
