If you are a Bridgerton fan who has binge-watched the beautiful ladies and is now deeply inspired by their Corsets, unique Victorian wig, and the flowy gowns, we don’t blame you. Welcome to the club! While you are not going to find your Duke here, you sure could at least fire up your wardrobe by adding some glam to it.
Interestingly, the rage of fashion that corsets have become now, was not the case originally. They were mere undergarments to tone the body and give it a defined figure. Things changed and fashion cycles repeated with the Gen-Z twist of Corsets being worn on top and being one of the formal and hot wardrobe choices. Even in the kinky world of BDSM, corsets seem to have found their use as a glam costume while indulging in fetishes and kinks.
Mostly made out of leather, they give a bustier look to the body making it an instant turn-on for the partner. For those who are into Victorian sex may even pair it with a Victorian wig to give it a roleplay touch.
Tips to Guide You in Corset Shopping
A well-fitting women corset can do wonders for your figure. It can give you an hourglass shape, no matter what your natural proportions are. It can make you feel attractive and confident. And it can be a lot of fun to shop for! But corsets are not one-size-fits-all items. You need to take your time to find the right one for you. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you find the perfect corset.
1. Determine Your Budget
Corsets range in price from around $50 to $500 or more. Decide how much you’re willing to spend before you start shopping. That way, you won’t fall in love with a corset that’s out of your price range. Besides, if you’re going for a period look overall, you better save up for the gown and the Victorian Wig.
2. Consider Your Reason for Wearing a BDSM Corset
Are you looking for something to wear under your clothes to give you a little extra support and shape? Or are you looking for a showpiece to wear on its own? Your answer will determine what kind of corset you should buy.
3. Choose the Right Size
Corsets are sized by waist measurement and usually come in sizes 20 inches through 40 inches. To choose the right size, measure your natural waistline and add 4 inches if you’re buying an overbust corset or 2 inches if you’re buying an underbust corset. For example, if your natural waist measures 28 inches, you would buy a size 32 overbust corset or a size 30 underbust corset.
4. Pick the Right Style
There are many different styles of corsets, from Victorian-inspired designs to modern styles with clean lines. Again, consider what you will be using the corset BDSM for when making your choice. If you want something that can be worn as outerwear, look for a style with boning in the front and back panels and grommets or lacing in the back so that it can be adjusted for a comfortable fit.
If you are just looking for something to wear under your clothes, choose a less ornate design without boning in the front or back panels. Make it look as sexy as you want, surprise your partner by wearing it with a Victorian wig, to raise the temperature.
5. Select the Right Fabric and Color
Corsets are usually made from satin, brocade, or leather. They come in many different colors, from simple black or white designs to rich jewel tones and patterns. Again, think about what you will be using the corset for when making your choice. A white satin corset might be perfect for your wedding dress but not so practical for everyday wear. A black leather BDSM corset would make a great addition to your BDSM wardrobe but might be too intense for beginners.
6. Try It On
Once you have narrowed down your choices, it’s time to try on some corsets! Make sure you have someone else with you so they can help you lace up the back (if necessary). Pay attention to how the corset feels when it’s on—it should be snug but not too tight, and it should be comfortable enough to wear for extended periods of time without causing pain or discomfort.
Also pay attention to how easy it is to breathe—you should be able to take deep breaths without feeling like the corset is constricting your chest too much. If everything feels good, then congratulations—you have found yourself the perfect corset! Want a tip? Pair it with a Black Lace G String and accentuate your curves.
7. Take Care of Your Corset
Once you’ve found the perfect corset, it’s important that you take care of it properly so that it will last for years (or even decades) to come. If possible, store your corset hanging up rather than folded away in a drawer. This will help preserve the shape of the boning over time. If folding is necessary, place acid-free tissue paper between each layer of boning before folding so that they don’t rub together and damage each other over time—you can find acid-free tissue paper at most craft stores.
When laundering your corset, always use cold water and mild soap (to avoid damaging the fabric) and air dry it rather than putting it in the dryer. Corsets should also be inspected regularly (at least once every six months) for signs of wear and tear such as fraying seams or broken boning. Correct any problems as soon as possible so that they don’t get worse over time. By following these simple tips, you’ll ensure that your beautiful new corset will last forever.
Shopping for a Corset doesn’t have to be difficult! Just remember the budget, Corset styles, Corset sizes, and Corset fabrics. Try them well for fitting, and quality and the corset that is made for you will make you feel comfortable as well as confident in your own skin. As we said, we are all for a Victorian wig and Black leather corset BDSM look, you may also try it and send us your pictures too.
