Looking for a corset that really fits?

Corsets are everywhere and some are incredibly affordable but you need to know that sometimes a deal is not a deal, and that is often the case with corsets. It's easy to find a corset for a Halloween costume but getting one that will realy shape you, hold you and support you is alot more of a challnge and if that's what you're looking for then having one custom made is the best option.

Farthingales offers tips on how to work with a corset maker and they have a list of corset makers as well. Check out the link below for more information.

Lacing a Corset


There are many ways to lace a corset; one is the "rabbit ears" method shown here. Notice how you can't see any ends to the laces. This method uses just one length of ribbon. I started at the top. Laced down to the waist, where I skipped a grommet - leaving a "loop" of ribbon at each side before continuing to lace down to the bottom.

At the bottom I knotted the ends of the ribbon together and tucked the knot behind the grommet on the bottom left.
