Corset Journey

Breaking it in

Ok so it's day six of my waist training, not counting the two weeks of breaking it in. Breaking it in was definetly the hard part, basically if you lace up your new beautiful corset too tight you run the risk of warping the boning, popping threads and ruining its body shaping potential. So I wore it for about 6-8 hours a day for two weeks .Having to sit perfectly upright on the couch???ugh!

Price and features

I wanted to start out with a reasonable priced garment, afraid of jumping out the window with a corset priced at $300 and up and realizing I didn't even like it. I decided to go with a corset story, waist training corset described as having 24 spiral steel bones, 5 layers of fabric, modesty panel yada, yada,yada. After much research I felt like it would give me the most bang for my least amount of buck especially after seeing you tube videos of the "reasonable priced" $200 and up corsets misrepresenting their quality. So the instant they had a sale I jumped on it paying around $65, it normally retails for about $90.

My garment had to be constructed and took about 6 weeks after my order to arrive, even for plain black it's a simple but beautiful piece. I wear it both under and over my clothes. When under always with a seamless tank underneath to protect my skin as advised, and when wearing over your clothes, be aware and mindful of the men onlookers, they are mesmerized!

Tight lacing

So far so good, definitely a labor of love, tightening, loosing throughout the day, I purchased a garment with quite a bit difference from my own waist which is at 30" while my corset can lace down to 24". I've been taking it slow lacing down to a 29-28 on the outside while an inch smaller on the inside. After watching a few videos online I'm inspired and ready to really start going in, I think tonight I will try to expand past my 8-10hr wear and sleep in it :/ I'll keep you updated on that. My goal is a 26 inch waist maybe tightlaced to 20 but I'll have to see, with this bottom I have it may be too extreme!!!

  1. I started training about 6 months ago with a puimond corset. Can i ask if your waist actually stays smaller than it started? I am pretty much straight up and down and i hope to get a smaller waist.
