Size Guide

 

7 Easy Steps To Obtaining Your Measurements

1) Find your underbust – just beneath your bra band. (B)
2) Measure the widest part of your ribcage. If this measurement is larger than your underbust use this measurement instead.
3) Find your “skeletal waist” –under your bottom rib, directly above your hip bone. (D)
4) Meaure the upper hip – this should be located approximately 4″ below the waist. (E)
5) Measure the low hip – this location should be approximately 6″ below the waist. (F)
6) Find your underbust length- bra band to skeletal waist (G)
7) Measure for lower torso length- skeletal waist to lap/pubic bone (H)

You Have More Questions? Here Are A Few FAQ’s About Sizing

s-l1600-1As a general rule, please remember your corset will be centered on your waist. In order to find a proper fit you will need to measure yourself for the specific corset you’re looking at. Most of our corsets are measured at 3 distances. The underbust, 4″ below the waist (upper hip), 6″ below the waist (low hip/full hip). The underbust length varies depending on the model of corset you choose. Please refer to the sizing images and measure at the appropriate distance from the waist for that design.  We understand not everyone’s proportions are the same (which is exactly why we offer so many varying lengths and silhouettes) so we ask you to measure yourself to fit the corset you want to wear. These distances don’t necessarily sit at the edge if the corset, but instead at the distances we measure for our sizing chart. Please review the size chart and you will see the specified distances from waist located in the head column. You can also use our diagram images for each product as an additional tool. Here is an example of a diagram image.

The underbust is the area located below the bust (or pectorals on those without a bust). We use the vertical length from right below the bust to the waist, to determine if you’re long or short-waisted. Some corsets will be patterned for a long or average underbust length. Other corsets will fit all body types vertically (without being too long) but can be on the shorter end. If you’re concerned with a corset being too long or too short (leading to a bit of fluff below the bust if the corset is truly centered on the waist). Please remember to take this measurement, and compare it to our sizing diagrams for each corset you may be interested in.

When measuring the waist keep in mind it is located in the space between the ribs and hips. Since floating ribs are fairly hard to detect, it is easiest to find your iliac crest (top edge of the hip bone) and feel above this area you will find is more “squishy”  (generally 2″ above, or 4″ above the upper hip) this space is pretty standard on everyone, considering the waist is always in relativity of the upper hip. The ribs are what tend to differentiate in length from person to person. Remember the waist isnt always your smallest measurement. You’re not looking for the “visual” waist (also known as the apparent waist). You’re looking for the skeletal waist. If you have any questions feel free to contact us via our sizing form, we will happily assist.
