Lacing Yourself Into a Steel Boned Corset Video Tutorial
Patience and Practice is All You Need!
Hello OC Blog Readers! Lacing yourself into a corset might seem impossible…but just about anyone can master this skill with a little patience and a lot of practice! It’s easier if you have a mirror you help make sure your modesty panel is in place and that you are lacing your corset evenly from top to bottom. I am using our beautiful purple satin CS-411 with bright yellow laces to help
Don’t try to rush the process when you are first learning to lace yourself. The shorter corsets are much easier than the longline as you have fewer grommets to contend with. You may find your shoulders get sore and tired the first few times you try to lace until you get a feel for it and your coordination improves. It really does get easier-so don’t give up!
I have also heard that some women use a doorknob to help out. This works by hooking one of the pull loops to a doorknob and then pull the loop taut. Have the other pull loop in your hand (on your more “flexible” shoulder side). With your free hand begin working the “X’s” from top to center and bottom to center walking away from the door to keep the laces tight. There is no one right way to lace yourself into a corset. The key ingredient is practice, practice and more practice!
