5 Important Things to Look for in a Quality Corset
There’s a new video up on The Lingerie Addict YouTube Channel and this one’s about one of my 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 five things you want to look for in a quality corset. This video is also heavily based on an 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 five 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.
