There’s a new video up on The Lingerie Addict YouTube Channel and this one’s about one of my most favorite pieces of lingerie – the corset. I get more questions about corsets than anything else, which makes sense because there’s a ton of conflicting (and inaccurate!) information out there.
In this month’s video, I use one of my corsets (an absolutely gorgeous piece from Puimond) to share the 5 things you want to look for in a quality corset. This video is also heavily based on a article from one of my columnists (and our resident corset expert), Marianne who wrote “What (You Didn’t Know) to Look for in a Corset: 5 Popular Myths Debunked.”
In case you don’t have time to watch the video right now, here are the 5 things to consider:
1) Steel Boning
2) A Steel Busk
3) Metal Grommets
4) Natural Fabric Lining
5) A Waist Tape (which can be internal or external)
I hope you enjoy the video and that, if you’re new to all this, it helps you find the right corset. If you’re looking for corsetieres or corset vendors, definitely take a look at our corset directory. And, of course, if you have any tips or advice of your own, please do share it in the comments.
