CORSET SIZING INFORMATION

When looking at sized for Corsets measure your waist at it smallest part and then minus 4 inches or 10cm to get a good fit on your new Steampunk Corset. A well fitting corset should sit comfortably against your skin without leaving boning channel indentations. Although a corset is pulling your waist in, you should feel comfortable and supported, like receiving a hug :) 

 

Natural Waist  Corset Size  Approximate UK Dress Size
 
24 inch (60cm) 20 inch 8
26 inch (65cm) 22 inch 10
28 inch (70cm) 24 inch 12
30 inch (75cm) 26 inch 14
32 inch (80cm) 28 inch 16
34 inch (85cm) 28"/30 inch 18
 If you have an odd-number sized waist, for example, if you have a 29 inch waist instead of going down 4 inches you would go down 5 inches to a 24 inch corset. If you like things a little looser try going down 3 inches and go for a 26 inch corset.
