    Hi Lucy,
    I have waist trained in the past. I just had a tummy tuck and wanted to see what your option was about when I can wear my corset again. Unfortunately all the binders the doctors want me to wear are too big on me. The reason they suggest to wear one during the healing process is to reduce swelling and to support the lower back. I would apricate any suggestions. Thankyou

      Hi Cole, it can take a long time to heal from such an operation and I’m not familiar with your medical history – I know that some people have successfully used corsets as compression wear following their procedures, but it would be best to ask your doctor if switching to a corset would be okay. Corsets can potentially give much stronger compression compared to the post surgical binders (of course, you’re always in control of exactly how tight the corset is).

        I got back from my doctor today and yes, he agreed that corsets do help with tummy tuck swelling and gives good back support. I’m wearing mine now, and I feel so much better. Thankyou for getting back to me. πŸ™‚

    Hi Lucy. Have you tried the Audrey underbust corset from Isabella corsetry? I want to know if you have a review about it before I actually order one just in case its not the proper fit for me. My underbust to waist measurement is 4 inches ; from the underbust to my lap is 8-9 inches. Thanks for your time. ?

      Hello Jaena, I’m sorry I haven’t tried the Audrey underbust! It would be best to contact Isabella Corsetry directly with your question. πŸ™‚

    Hello! I’ve been interested in corsets for a while now and I’d love to see how it will work for me, especially since I have scoliosis. I don’t have a big enough curve for it to be deemed serious but you can tell that my spine isn’t straight by my physical appearance. My shoulders are slightly uneven (you can tell if you look closely), my hips/waist is uneven so it’s like I have two different hips/waists. Though I never really have been bothered by that, I would like to ‘straighten things out’ and have a more even waist. Another benefit this would be for me is better posture as it is a little difficult for me to sit upright for long periods of time. It can cause my back to ache a little. I’ve also read the benefits section of this site and was surprised at what I read because I never knew that corsets could benefit you in that way! The next time I go to the doctors (or whatever you call it) to get my spine checked or maybe on my first physical exam, I’ll ask if it’s ok for me to start using a corset. I do have a question though as to what corset would be right for me? Because the last thing I’d want to do is get the wrong one and suffer the physical consequences!

      Hi Kennedy, there are a few different corsets you could try depending on what your goals are and what your doctor is comfortable with. The amount of correction you may/ may not experience also depends somewhat on your age and the severity of your curve. I have an article about scoliosis correction (only partial correction, mind you) with a corset.
      Some corsetieres do make asymmetric corsets to accommodate your curves, but if you cannot afford a custom corset and you are focused more on waist reduction while keeping uneven hips comfortable, you might be able to use a corset with adjustable hip ties.
      I hope these links help!

    I’m trying to sell my red and lace corset I bought it for 300 bucks do you know where I could possibly sell to the side of course I don’t want $300 for it

    1. Boo Bobobob

      Hi Heather, there is a group on Facebook called “Corsets On Sale”, you can access it through the larger group “The Tightlacing Society” and that sale group has thousands of people buying and selling gently used and sample corsets at discount.

    Hi lucy,am new at waist training and as such would need you to help with the corset to begin with.am a plus size with a waist 38″ hip is 53″ will have to check my under bust and get back to you.but the challenge here is am in Nigeria,do you ship to nigeria and how much will both d corset and shipping cost me.

    1. Boo Bobobob

      Hi Lola, different corsets cost different amounts, but generally speaking one of the standard length corsets is $109 and shipping to Nigeria is $47, so the price would be around $156 (although it may cost more than that if you need a longer corset or want your corset to arrive faster). Thanks for your comment!

      Hi Sabrina, I don’t personally make corrective corsets for scoliosis, but I know that Fran of Contour Corsets does. You’re welcome to look through my gallery of other makers who work with scoliosis patients, some of the corsets are really beautiful although not all corsetieres work to correct the curvature, only stabilize it.

    How can I determine my size of my waist under the corset? My corseted waist size is 25′ , but I am not sure of my actual waist size while corseted.

    1. Boo Bobobob

      Hi Pam, I have a tutorial on Youtube on how to determine your corseted waist size. I hope this helps!

    I would like to buy a Corset for a short mid section. I will send my measurements shortly.

    1. Boo Bobobob

      Hi Kelli, I have a gallery on cinchers for a short torso here. If you prefer the look of a longline corset, I also have a gallery for longlines made for shorter waists too. Thanks!
