WHAT IS MY SIZE? You should know that normally, your corset size is going to be a little bit smaller than the size you use for pants, but this depends on how fitted you want to be in your corset and how wide you want the opening at the back. We show you an approximate size chart (in centimetres) that could be useful as a guide for you. One of the most important measures you need to know is waist. As you probably know, corset size in the UK is given on inches and usually the actual size you need for yourself is from 2 to 4 inches under your real measure at the waist without any reduction (so, breathe normally!)

If your real waist measure is 27,9 inches (71 cm), your corset size is going to be 24”, that means a 38 of our European sizes (almost 4 inches less that your real measure).
Except when you have very different measures from the size chart (above), the size of your corset will be one size under the size you really need for your real measurements at the waist.
Our corsets average reduction comes from 2 to 5 cm at the waist. We have an extreme reduction corset pattern for very demanding and experienced customers that want to reduce over that 5 cm.
If you have big bust measurements or a bra cup over C, you have to inform us when you place your order. It´s very important for us, to make you choose the appropriate pattern for each customer and if we are inform about all your measures is going to be really easy to help you choosing a corset for your shape.
HOW TO MEASURE
Bust measurement: You must measure all around the bust outline, coming over the nipple. You can wear your corset with bra, so if you are going to do this, please take the measurement with the bra on.
Bra cup: This is important for us to know if the corset you choose is the most appropriate for your shape. This is because some of our corsets are made for big busted women and some others for small bust women.
Waist measurement: it´s important that you measure the narrowest point of your waist (and breathe normally, please). When we say the narrowest point is smallest outline at your waist. This is not necessarily where the pants/skirt ends or where your belly is.
Full hips measurement: This is important. You should measure the widest point at the hips outline. Not at the hips bones, but a little bit down.
