Thought I would start a thread where dolls can discuss their corseting and share what they know with others :)

I found this lovely link for corsets that I adore. I love the shape they create and I am hoping to get one in the near future.

Also, if you are an avid tightlacer please do post any vital info that can help new dolls with their corseting adventures. Thank you.

Here is what I want to achieve one day:

A few things about corsets...

Do not buy corsets with plastic boning. These are fashion corsets and will not sinch very well.

Only buy steel boned corsets, preferably spiral steel boned, as they are the most comfortable.

When putting on a steel boned corset for the first time, do not tighten it at all. Make sure you have properly broken it in before you tighten it. The breaking in process does involve slowly tightning it over a period of several weeks. The first time should be for about half an hour with no tightening, and then take it off. The next day you can tighten it EVER SO SLIGHTLY, for half an hour and then take it off. Keep increasing the tightening every day very slightly.

If you do not properly break in a corset, you can damage it by either ripping the stitching or deforming the boning in a way that will cause the corset to not sit evenly on your torso, instead it'll be twisted and uneven.

If you buy an off the shelf corset, make sure it's made for your body type. That is measure the circumference of your underbust, waist, and hips. Make sure that the measurements work out. For instance, is the corset's underbust smaller than the hips but almost the same as the waist? Make sure your own measurements are as such. If it is not, then you will not be able to lace it properly, and this can damage the corset by putting uneven stress on the stitches.

When tightening a corset, the grommets should be parallel with eachother For instance, they should look like || not /\ or \/ or () or )(. Rather they should be straight up and down. If they are not, then you are putting uneven stress on the stitching and will bend and distort the busk.
