Corsets remain so popular and over time have become really fashion-forward garments. They are beautiful items and wearing corsets is lots of fun.
The purchase of a corset is an investment and if you care for it well it’ll give you years of wear. If you have purchased your corset for a special event and are new to wearing corsets, it is always best to learn how to wear a corset and feel great before the event.
Here are a few tips that will be helpful:
Test your new garment on several occasions before wearing a corset for a special event. Just like with a pair of new high heels, it is necessary to give your new undergarment a test-drive before the special event day. Plus size corsets are restrictive and it takes a little time to get used to moving around comfortably in them. You will also get an idea for how long you are happy wearing the corset and how tightly you feel comfortable lacing it.
Consider wearing a small top under your corset. Some people choose this option so that there is a layer between their bodies and the corset for hygiene reasons. However, usually, ladies wear a corset as an undergarment or the only layer of clothing on the top part of the body.
Because of this, you may find that you perspire or the corset gets dirty. Try using a damp cloth to get stains out and to clean around the underarm area. Do not wash your corset in the washing machine! This is a very important point as you can ruin a corset if you do and the fabric may become distorted.
Always consult your clothing label for advice on how to wash and dry your plus size corset as different fabrics behave in different ways.
There are many corset designs to choose from and there is a corset for everyone!
