     Once you’ve got the basics down, you’ll need to know how to find the right torso length. Just like we all have different bust, waist and hip measurements, we all have different torso measurements. So you’ll want to read up on our blog all about the three most common torso lengths and how to determine which one is the best fit for you and your body. Not only will you learn how to pick the right one for you, you’ll learn how to get away with wearing certain styles that maybe weren’t meant for your body but how to do it safely and comfortably!



            When you have determined all of your sizing needs for your corset, you’re going to need to pick your perfect corset, we have a handy guide of our most popular fabrics to help you decide which corset would be best suited for you and your needs/desires. You’ll be able to decide whether you’re a satin, mesh, cotton, faux leather or brocade babe. And you’ll be able to shop whichever fabric suits your fancy right from the post!

            Once you have your perfect corset picked out and she has finally arrived to you, you’ll need to know how to lace your corset and how to tuck your laces.

            When you have learned how to properly get laced into your corset, you’ll want to learn how to properly season your corset.

I’ve always felt the female figure is the most lovely and intriguing to look at. There’s been a connection of sensuality to the corset and I have yet to own such a beautiful garment. I have done some research and hope to meet my very first piece through Violet Vixen. The simple approach you have created to ensure the fit, fabric, and price will be perfect for me is what has drawn me to your site.
