Debunking a Corset Myth

Myth #1 Corsets are Uncomfortable

Have you ever tried to fit into an old pair of jeans - ones that fit when you weighed a bit less?  Were they comfortable? Did the pinch and bite and hurt when you sat down?  You likley knew you were uncomfortable because the jeans did not fit. Corsets that don't fit are uncomfortable too....just like bras that are too small...or panties...or shoes!

So, corsets are not uncomfortable if they fit properly.

Does wearing one mean you have to move differently - Yes
Does wearing one mean you posture will change - Yes
Does wearing one limit the ability for your tummy to expand due to gas build up - Yes

Can any of these things effect comfort - absolutely - but that may not be a bad thing.

You'll be aware that you have to move without twisting your body - not a bad thing
You'll stand more errectly - look a little taller and your tummy won't proceed you into a room - not a bad thing
You'll want to avoid foods that cause you gas - NOT a bad thing

I'm not saying wear one every day all day. But I am saying :
  • "DON'T BE AFRAID of a Corset".
  • Lace your corset comfortably snug - you'll still get the look of curves if the corset has them
  • If you really want a corset, get a good solid one - not the little lingerie ones that have scrawny bones that will bend and poke you. But if you do have one of these - consider removing the old bones and replacing them with new ones
  • A corset can be an incredible support garment and - like a pair of spectacular shoes - you need to wear them a few times to make them fit you

More Corset Myths will be discussed here over the next few weeks.
