Corset Sizes Demystified-How to Figure out your Corset Size.
You ever wonder what these strange terms mean? What is a size 42 Corset?, What does that mean anyways?
The Information I am providing you here pertains to these most common brands of corsets. Coquette, Dreamgirl, Elegant Moments, Empire Intimates, Intimate Attitudes, Leg Avenue, Shirley of Hollywood, and possibly a few more. If you buy a professional tight lace corset then they will provide you with more information about their own size charts ( you will know it is a professional corset by the price being over $100).
The numbers refer to your maximum bust size. I personally think the most important size is the waist size for a corset. The standard corset is 6 inches smaller in the waist than the maximum bust size.
First of all, lets go back to the maximum bust size. This number has nothing to do with your bra size. To get your maximum bust size take a tape measure, and wrap a tape measure around the fullest part the bust (you should be wearing a bra) parallel to the floor and straight – do not indent the tape between the breasts.
Tip – If you do not have a tape measure you can use a non stretchy string and compare it to a standard ruler you may have around the house.
Note: Corsets are sized with a 2 to 4 inch gap for lacing in the back. If you want a smaller gap then you should get a size larger.
