Where Do I Put This Darn Measuring Tape?
Hello OC Blog Readers! We have many customers unsure about where and to measure for a corset. We try to describe measuring tape placement in our sizing blogs-but a video really is worth a thousand words!
In this video, I show you where to place the measuring tape for the most accurate reading to use when determining what size corset you need. Then I go through what my measurements are and what size I wear in our 411, 426 and 305 underbust corset styles. The 426 and 411 I wear a size 22, but in the 305 I prefer a size 24 as it has less hip room (and I have hips). The picture below shows me in both the 411 and the 426. I can easily close the bottom all the way on both (I don’t because it’s better for the corset to lace evenly).
Now that you’ve got your measurements head over to the sizing page of our website, give us your measurements, and one of our sizing experts will be happy to help you determine the style and size of corset that is right for you!
