Fakir Musafar as “The Perfect Gentleman”, 1959 This photo has inspired many other gentlemen to consider waist training. Click through to learn more about Fakir.
Gentlemen wear corsets too, but sometimes it can be difficult to find makers who cater to cinching down the waist while maintaining a masculine physique. The following corsetiers and businesses in this gallery are experienced in making masculine corsets. (There are quite a lot of them actually, so I won’t be writing much in this post.)
All of the makers below either offer multiple styles of men’s corsets, or they can modify women’s styles to fit masculine proportions. I would highly recommend choosing the custom-fit options (supporting small independent designers, in addition to obtaining a perfect fit) over the ready-to-wear options, but both are included for the sake of completion. Click on any of the photos to take you to the website/ social media of each maker to learn more.
*If you are considering a feminizing corset, I have a separate article for feminine corsets for cross-dressers and trans women.*
