Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your bust. * This is not always the same as your bra size so please measure..
The Most Important Detail
Is the waist. Your NATURAL waist line. This does not mean under your tummy area, or all the way over your tummy near your bustline. A natural waist line will be the smaller section of your torso above the belly button.
Know Your Body
If your body shape is more of an apple shape (no matter what your size, you carry your weight solidly in the middle and upper torso) then we suggest you go a size larger, or at the very least be very accurate with your measurements.
Measure around your natural waistline at the smallest part. * Take off 2 inches when you order if you want this to fit very slimming and if you have an hourglass waist. So if your waist is 40 inches, and you want it be a complete slimming tight fit, order the size for a 38 inch waist. Again if you are apple shaped in the middle you may want to stay with your exact size (see below). All of our corsets are fully laced and can be adjusted at the back so will fit any body shape provided your bust measurement (at the fullest part) is 4-14″ greater than your waist measurement!
Keep in mind for example
that a lovely lady who only wears a size 8 pant, could have a bit of an apple shaped torso where she carries her weight solidly in the middle, and so after measuring her waist, may need an XL. At the same time, another lovely lady who wears a size 16 pant, but has a pear or hourglass shaped body (weight is in the hip, booty, and thighs) and has a fairly soft and relatively smaller waist and torso area, could also wear an XL!!
