Measure the girth of your waist, hip and underbust. The hips should be measured approx. 10-15 cm below the waist. These are loose measurements. Calculate the value of the waist minus 10 cm (because of lacing) and compare this value to the value in the table. Round it up or down. Your size is in the left column.
The sizes of our zip corsets correspond generally to the standard clothing sizes. However, we recommend wearing a corset one size smaller than your normal size in order to make the waist effect more visible. This recommendation applies only for ladies with a bust size up to B. Beginning from bust size C, we recommend your normal clothing size.
All measurements are listed in cm without regard to lacing. This table helps to establish the size of classic corsets with hook fastener.
1. Lay the two corset halves on a flat surface so that the eyelets have a distance of approx. 10 cm to each other. Start with to lace from the top to the middle diagonally to get a crosses.
2. Leave long loops on both sides in the middle (with classic corsets at the waist line). Continue to lace as from the beginning till the lower end.
4. Put on the corset and make the waist line by slight tightening of the middle loops.
Finally, tighten the two loops in the middle to form a nice bow.
3. Check whether the lacing is in the correct position and has the equal distances between eyelets.
Make a simple knot at the undermost eyelet on the inside of the corset and tighten it up. Cut off the spare ends of the lacing.
In this case, the determined measurements of the customer are transferred to existing standard cuts and individualized. The prefabricated articles are adjusted by individual needs in terms of width and length dimensions of the corresponding corset. Such corsets are not custom-made corsets, as many essential points are not considered, such as the individual body build.
Custom-made production takes into account not only usual measurements, such as waist, hip, underbust and length, but also a variety of other factors, especially individual body build, such as posture, individual pressure points and costal arch, and often also special individual design elements.
These very special aspects do not only make the corset more comfortable to wear, but are also indispensable for irregularities of the body, which cannot be covered by a standard production.
At least one preliminary fitting try is required to optimize the cut to the personal physical conditions of the customer. This intermediate step ensures the wearing comfort of the corset so that the corset can be worn easily over long periods of time.
