Many women wear corsets, not just plus size women, because of their ability to firm and enhance a woman’s body. But here are some tips to help you choose the right garments.
Know your measurements:Buy corsets in your size or, if you are not completely sure, one size larger. Some women think that if they get a corset a size down, it will provide more compression and make them look thinner. Nope! In fact, corsets that are a size too small will only create bulges and rolls where you don't want them, plus it will be extremely uncomfortable.
Know your body shape and focus on what you want to flaunt: Great corsets take what you already have and give it a boost. No matter your size, knowing your body type will help you see the beauty you were born with and help highlight different parts of your body while taking attention away from less flattering spots.
Choose Your Support Level:Curvy women have a choice of three different types of compression:
Light compression: Light control, everyday corset pieces will smooth trouble spots so you can rock your look all day long.
Medium compression: Firm control corsets are made with stretchy fabrics that move with your body while adding subtle contours to your shape.
Firm compression: Often used to provide more contouring to your shape. Firm and extra-firm control pieces are perfect for formal, structured clothing like wedding dresses, prom gowns, evening gowns and cocktail dresses.
