What is A Steel Boned Corset?
Steel boned corset is a type of tubular undergarment worn around the waist and lower torso for waist cinching. Boning in a steel boned corset is made of steel wires that are interlaced at regular intervals. It is also encased with three layers of reinforced cloth, reinforced seams, and strong waist tape. Ensuring comfort, durability, and flexibility!
The steel skeleton inside a quality corset is strong and secure, which can provide you with more power in your back, shoulders, and stomach. The credit for the sturdy framework goes to a set of 14 to 16 thin steel bars (called busks) which run down each side and across the front of your torso.
They hold up your corset (and all its laces, grommets, ribbons, and other parts) from below. In fact, the bars are mounted on both sides of each hook-and-eye clasp that holds your corset together at the top center front. These hooks serve as an anchor for all these different pieces coming together. Transforming your figure into that of a pinup model.
How Do Steel Boned Corsets Work?
Did you know a steel-boned corset rigorously affects the waist up to 5 inches? That’s because a steel-boned corset strikes the right balance of boning and tightening of the laces to slim the waistline.
While it’s quite tempting to tighten the lace to its maximum for the first time itself, it’s best to avoid it so you don’t experience discomfort, possible bruising, and shortness of breath. If you want to safely train your waist, start by seasoning a corset to your measurements. This will help the garment slide on easily and deliver a snug fit.
The key is to wear your corset on a regular basis, tightening it gradually over weeks or months to ensure comfort and prevent injury. As you practice good posture and learn how to curve your spine back into its natural alignment over time, you begin to rebuild muscle tone in your back.
How to Choose A Steel Boned Corset?
Get that waist-snatching look every time you head out of your home by picking the corset that hugs your body the best. Here are some tips on how to choose a top-notch quality steel-boned corset.
Before purchasing a corset, make sure that it’s tight enough to change your shape, but not so much that it causes injury. Your proportions and the makeup of your body are not like anyone else’s, so it pays to spend time taking precise measurements to find the right one.
A true corset lover knows there is no substitute for exceptional comfort, slimming function, and authentic styling of a real corset. To ensure you are getting a high-quality corset, look for one that has 16 steel bones sewn into the lining. Corsets with 12 to 14 steel bones won't hold up as well over time.
Yet another tip is to make sure you don’t confuse modern underbust with older underbust that were worn by Victorian women. If you want something that will push up your breasts, give amazing posture support and help create sexy curves, then a Victorian Underbust is what you need! However, if all you want is to tighten your tummy area without changing much else about your physique then a modern underbust corset may suit you better.
How to Put On A Steel Boned Corset?
Once you’ve got the right corset, the next challenge is to put it on. Remember: your corset should be tight enough to fit like a glove, but not so tight it restricts your breathing. If this is your first corset it may be helpful to have someone help you put on your corset, especially for the first few times you put it on for a snug fit.
Typically corsets are tightened by fastening the front busk (the two long metal pieces that run up the middle of the corset, one with metal loops, the other with metal 'pins'). And then cinching the corset by tightening the laces in the back to get an hourglass silhouette.
Next, pull the laces through the grommets, starting at the top and bottom, and work your way towards the middle, pulling the loops as you go. The pull loops should be at the natural waist. Tie them when you’ve reached the desired tightness.
