Corset Sizing Guide
Delicious Corsets can be purchased or ordered in stock (Ready to Wear) sizes or as custom drafted pieces created to your exact measurements. Below you will find some guidelines to help you determine your appropriate size and tips for taking your body measurements.
Stock Sized Corsets:
A stock sized corset should typically be about 4 inches smaller than your natural waist measurement. This allows the corset to compress and reshape you at the waist, and also allows for a gap down the center back of the corset where you can tighten or loosen as necessary.
Custom Drafted Corsets:
Custom drafted corsets will be made to your exact measurements. It is very important that these measurements are taken accurately. We strongly suggest that another person assists in taking measurements to assure precision. Custom corsets will be made to the measurements and specifications we are given -- Delicious cannot be held responsible for an improper fit if the measurements were not taken correctly.
Please follow the tips below to insure the most accurate measurements possible.
Measurements should be taken directly next to the skin or over a very fitted, light weight garment (bodysuit, chemise, etc.)
Record measurements in 1/2" increments. Be honest with your measurements!
Keep the tape measure snug without pulling too tight.
Tie a piece of string at your waist. This will help with taking other measurements based off of your wastline.
To get an idea of the corseted waist size you want, pull the tape measure as tightly as possible at your waistline. Some people will be more compressible than others; a firm body type may only compress 2 inches, while a more fleshy body type may compress 6 inches to 10 inches.
