Few months ago a friend from elementary school, Leticia posted one selfie with an incredible waist. I asked her, what was that? She replied, tight lacing. Have you heard about that?I had some “corset” knowledge, especially in the fashion industry, but I didn’t know much about waist training. Tight lacing (also called corset training) is the practice of wearing a tightly-laced corset to reduce the waist line. It is done to achieve cosmetic modifications to the figure and posture or to experience the sensation of bodily restriction. So, I went to EBay and I bought the closest corset that I thought it was appropriated for the reduction of my waist. Of course, I was wrong, and I just realized that after buy 3 corsets, I started on X-l-large and dropped to large and medium. When I posted my brand new medium corset my friend Jambavati explained that my cheap corset was not appropriate for this body modification. She invited me for a Facebook Group called Tight Lacing and Fitness it was great.
At the same photo but on Instagram, I received a random visitor @vampedcountessbasha and she said that my old corset was wrong as well! I was kind frustrate. Actually, she explained it better, and she was right, my older corset almost didn’t give me any reduction or curve. And she recommended American brands such as @orchardcorset and @mysticcitycorsets. She also mentioned that those brands were good for beginners.
I thought because I didn’t have enough natural curve, since I am skinny now :P, so I don’t have much fat on my belly and my hips weren’t big, that’s why I didn’t have hourglass shape, even with my older corset. As we know, we see more results when we are fatter while we are using corset.
After these discussion, I stopped wearing my orders corsets, and read several articles about real tight lacing. Few days ago I went to Orchard Corset Center in Manhattan (see the result bellow), I thought they are the same brand as Orchard Corset, but they are not, however I think they sell the same models, because my corset model was number 411 seemly very similar as Orchard Corset CS-411, but later I realized that I the corset the bought has different whatnots and laundry tags.With my corset from Orchard Corset Center on the second photo. The first photo I don’t have the corset, so you can see the small reduction.
I also bought a corset in Brazil from Mon Chéri Corseterie. In Brazil they make the corset based on our measures. It takes a month to be ready, plus the shipping days. So, while I was waiting, I felt in love for one corset from the Orchard Corset, number CS-201. It is shorter and gives more pressure on my waist. I’m in love for my new babe (corset) and I’m eager to wear it outside. Actually, I’m thinking about a corset editorial, who knows?
My corsets: With pants from EBay, with leopard outfit from Orchard Corset Center in Manhattan and the meshed corset is from Orchard Corset.
I’m in love with my mesh waspie corset! Tight lacing is make with a steel boned corset to help us to achieve a feminine curve body! I’m from Britney Spears generation, it means super low rise pants! It has destroyed our body! It’s not smashing my organs, or causing harm to my body. Corset has been using for generations by women, especially at Victorian time! It is like any other kind of body modification such as piercings, tattoos, botox, hair dying or body building! It however, won’t kill fat, tone muscles or work over night! I don’t want to have an extreme waist, I just want to have a waist! Because I’m skinny and I’m rectangular! It doesn’t shrinking my abdominal muscles, I have to train hard every single day my abs and low back! And yes, I’m very excited!
Of course when I speak with some people, who don’t have any information about tight lacing, they just think I am trying to have an unhealthy extremely small waist. They just think about these big reduction. In the body modification field, for me, moderation is the way! I don’t like so many tattoos, piercings, huge body builders, exaggerated Botox… To illustrate that, I found some celebrities on the internet who have worn the corset. Most of them are Brazilian because this trend is much more popular there than here in America. Brazilians are obsessed with beauty and curvilinear body. You probably have seen thousands of advertisement about Brazilian booty on the subway.
Sabrina Sato is a TV host and a carnival muse, she is Brazilian, has Japanese roots and she is considered one of the best shapes in Brazil! She has been caught a number of times wearing corset. The corset bellows to her, in both 3 photos she wears the same piece.
Paula Fernandes is a country singer from Brazil. Despite the fact that she has been criticized about her wardrobe for concerts, there is a consensus that her body is gorgeous. Here we can see at least 2 different kinds of underbust corsets.
Gisele Bundchen is super skinny Brazilian model. We can find hundreds of her fashion photography where she is wearing corsets. However, I’d rather putting some clothes from her personal closet. I think she likes to wear corset because she is rectangular, so it can give her at least a small fold.
Dita Von Teese is worldwide known for her fetishist attitude. She has been photographed with some kinds of corsets.
And when these girls take of the corset, they become very natural. As I have said before, when they are skinny, the result is less evident and perhaps more beautiful.
The collage bellow you can see the different kinds of results depend on the style of the corset. The first lady ‘cinta’, had worn an elastic belt to reduce measures, but she still with tubed shape.
Waspie Corset – CS-201
This is a steel boned waist trainer corset that combines breathable comfort with super cinching! The 201 is a 6-panel corset (12 total) with 16 spiral and flat steel bones. Waist tape reinforcement for additional strength. This corset is so comfortable you may forget you have it on-except everyone will notice your fabulous cinched waist!
Steel Boned Underbust – CS-305
This corset has an elegant silhouette and features a straight top and bottom edge that is complimentary for most body types and experience levels. This steel boned waist trainer is best for athletic (less naturally curvy) builds and for those seeking a less dramatic curve.
Steel Boned Underbust – CS-345
This corset works for a variety of shapes and figures. This corset has 16 flat and spiral steel bones for powerful cinching and support encased in premium cotton inside and out. It gives you plenty of curve but does not require the ample hip needed. The long back helps both provide optimal support and relieve back bulge at the bra line. The contoured bustline creates a beautiful and feminine silhouette but hugs the underbust and gives push up effect. This corset is suitable for most body types from slim build to natural hourglass.
Steel Boned Underbust – CS-411
The CS-411 is designed to dramatically shape the waist and to instantly give an enhanced hourglass shape. It doesn’t require as much natural curve in the hips.
Steel Boned Underbust – CS-426
This corset gives extreme curves to flatter and shape you into an instant hourglass figure! It’s indicate for the ones who have wide hips. Not my case.
My advertising is, before start this train, please read about that. Some people with some health issue cannot wear. Find a renamed corset maker, because if you like act like me with passion and impatience you will spend more money, won’t see the expected result and maybe damage your health.
