How to Find the Corset of Your Dreams


Corsets are a main stay of many people’s wardrobe. However, they are sometimes difficult to find in traditional stores since they are no longer widely worn.

Sure, they’ve enjoyed a sort of main stream comeback with women wearing them as part of a fashionable ensemble. Some women love them because a great corset makes them feel gorgeous, and dare I say it, sexy. They wear them as both under wear and outer garments. Although contemporary corsets offer structure, many are not as restrictive as they were historically. The form of these garments depends on their intended use.

Women are not the only ones who wear these structuring undergarments. Men who wear these undergarments will choose to do so for some of the same reasons as women. Many men also like to wear them because they feel that corsets are erotic and some even claim to wear them for spiritual reasons.

Even though men still wear these garments, the traditional market for these articles of clothing heavily focuses on the female population. The internet has many places where men can shop for corsets that fit their tastes.

Are you a corset virgin? Or, perhaps you’ve been wearing these garments for a while but still haven’t found the one that you’ve fallen in love with. What could you be missing?

Well, when shopping for a corset, keep the following in mind:

  • Construction matters; if you are a man, who chooses to wear corsets constructed for women that this might affect the fit and shape.
  • Your reasons for wearing a corset, this can influence the choice of materials and design. This is especially important if you will be having a corset maker create a custom garment for you.
  • Your budget, there is a range of prices, from cheap to expensive.
  • How often you will be wearing the piece. This will help you and the retailer decide the best choice for your comfort and purpose.
  • The shape of your body; structural garments, similar to many other articles of clothing, are designed for the perceived average shape. If your body is voluptuous, you could be better off getting one custom-made to fit your body type.
  • The type of closures used for the garment. Strong closures last through a lot of wear without falling apart.
  • There is a difference between a bodice and a corset. Corsets are made of sturdier materials and boning.
  • When buying from a store online or through mail order you should get the measurements for the garment you are considering. Most importantly, ask the seller for the waist and hip measurements.
  • Your height is important to consider so you will have the fit you want.
  • The type of lacing needed to meet your particular needs.

Keeping these points in mind can help you with purchasing a garment to help you meet your corset needs. Don’t be shy. When you are not sure, ask the corset maker or your salesperson as many questions as necessary to help you find just what you’ve been looking for.
