The Art of Corsetry

Leave a comment

1Now a days the front lacing on corsets has become increasing more popular and in demand for many good reasons. They are comfortable, great to under or over clothes, easy to close, you can wear them inside or for casual outdoor wear.  The good thing about wearing corsets is that they help you maintain good posture. I used to wear one for many years and was very much pleased with how it used to help me. Since I stopped wearing it feels like I end up slouching more.

In the past it was believed that wearing corsets for a long period of time was harmful which simply wasn’t true.  It is recommended than anyone over 16 should wear them as your body has grown into the changes.

There is so much art associated with corsets.  They are a huge demand in the gothic world, as they are very pleasing to look at on both women and men. They come in many different shapes and forms. Such as a light cinch to very tight giving you an hourglass shape.  Modern style include underbust, overbust and can be purchased at quality corset stores such as secret corset and stella corset.

For those not familiar with corsets and new wearers, now a days many corsets are made of plastic boning which don’t affect the figure very much. Genuine corsets are usually made of steel these corsets fit snug against your body giving you the tightness you expect. With the steel it makes them heavy giving you what you seek.

Buying a corset about 2 inches smaller should suffice as you don’t want to go too small having the corset not close. Bigger women can work corsets really well as you can fit into a smaller corset for a slimmer look.

Corsets come in many different shapes and styles, such as overbust and underbust. The difference being that the overbust reaches from the hip to your underarm and the underbust goes from your hips to under your breasts.  You can also buy cinchers which may be worn under clothes for a slimmer tighter finish.

Tightlacing is something some people liked to use as waist training. It is a practice where many women and sometimes men use to train their bodies as a way to modify their posture and waist shaping it into what you seek.

The one you should make sure when buying or planning on wearing a very tight corset is to make sure you can still move about and do the small things such being able to put on your shoes. You wouldn’t want corset wearing to get in your way as the defeats the purpose of enjoying your new ensemble.  I was able to find and purchase a few great corsets which were comfortable yet gave me that tightness I was seeking from a great store called www.secret corset.com.  The corsets are absolutely lovely and as pictured.

2The art of corsetry isn’t complicated especially when you avoid the things that would ruin your joy of having one on. Avoid spilling drinks especially if your corset is made of velvet. With Silk or satin corsets I would suggest making sure to stay away from jewelry that can get lodged into your corset.

1 Mother’s Day is a day in which everyone celebrates mothers and motherhood. It mostly celebrated in March and May across the world.  It started out in the United States in the 20th century.  The Mother’s Day holiday first began in 1908 introduced by Anna Jarvis who held a memorial for her mother. She was the one who began campaigning Mother’s Day as a recognizable date in the United States. It was successful in 1914 but was commercialized in 1920 which left her disappointed. It was quickly recognized and adopted by many countries around the world.  People tend to offer gifts, cards or flowers to their mothers, wives or any maternal figure.

Mother’s Day has come a long way and in the 21st Century many stores offer various types of gifts that can be purchased for that special and wonderful mother in your life.  There are so many in which to make Mother’s Day ever so special.  It all starts with planning ahead.  Making sure to think your gift through don’t just purchase whatever you find.  Don’t just rush it; think of all the things she may have mentioned during the year. Pick up on little hints and comments as this may help you out in the long run.

Make sure to make a note in your phone and set the date and time.  Last thing you want is forgetting about this special day as you will be in big trouble. Ask her throughout the year what flowers she likes and make a mental note. This way you can make prior arrangements with your florist.

This is your chance to pamper her and make her feel special.  For anyone who wants to show their appreciation for their Mom this would be the perfect time to do it.  Whether taking her for a pedicure or manicure this will leave her feeling so special and may enjoy it like never before.  Just think of how good she’ll feel after having her toes and nails done with a massage in between.
