Corset 101: How to Lace Yourself Into a Corset

Video Tutorial

FINALLY! We have finished shooting and editing this much anticipated video.  There is no real trick to lacing yourself into a corset, it just takes a little patience and a lot of practice. It is best if you have a full length mirror to make sure your modesty panel is in place and your lacing is even from top to bottom. Check it out then head on over to for all of your corset and shapewear needs.

There is a doorknob trick that might help if you don’t have as much shoulder flexibility. You hook one of the pull loops to a doorknob and pull the loop taut. Have the other pull loop in one hand, and with your more flexible arm begin working the laces at the “X’s”, walking away from the door as you do to pull the loop. Be sure and pull the loop you have in your hand as well. There is no one way to lace yourself into a corset. Try a few different things until you come up with a system that works best for you.

In this video, Danielle is lacing a sample fabric of our very popular CS-426 Underbust Corset. Let us know what you think about it so we can decide if we want to carry it. Cheri is wearing the CS-331 Denim Corset, which you can read all about in our Perfect First Time Corset Blog.

I have been with Orchard Corset since June of 2012 and what a journey it has been! I've gone from complete newbie to Marketing Director to Chief Operations Officer and I've learned more about corsets, corseting, shapewear, social media and myself than I would have ever thought possible. I have really enjoyed the journey and we at Orchard Corset are dedicated to providing a wealth of information for new and seasoned corseters alike.


We love to hear from you!
