What does Tight Lacing mean?

It is a gradual process of reducing the waist circumference when using a corset with steel underwires – the use of a corset to correct a female figure. Already in Victorian times corsets were used for this purpose, currently they are also very popular, which is still growing! There has been a great comeback in recent years, this method proven for centuries. Contemporary corsets are much more comfortable than those worn in the nineteenth century. At that time, corsets became a curse for women who were only to present themselves nicely. With the development of culture and civilization, people began to appreciate the comfort and convenience, which translated into the modification of corsets.


They returned to the fashion market with a completely improved design that guarantees not only a great body shaping effect, but above all greater comfort and ease of movement. The awareness of the corset’s impact on organs is also much greater. Nowadays, we know how to use corsets without harming health.

Regular wearing a tight lacing corset in combination with a healthy diet and exercise series can dramatically reduce the waist for men and women.

What’s more, the reducing corset that we will wear systematically allows you to implement a healthy eating practice: less and more often.
Squeezed organs do not allow “overeating”, eating too much. So naturally we start to follow healthy eating practices by eating small portions more than 2-3 times a day. Needless to say, this is the type of diet recommended by nutritionists from all over the world.


Thigt Lacing (tight lacing) – a method to permanently change the silhouette and natural waist circumference requires discipline and commitment. The easiest way to achieve the desired effect using three basic elements in harmony:

– use a reducing corset (with steel spiral underwires, which are adapted for this)

– Exercise regularly using a set of exercises for specific body parts,

– maintain a healthy diet and the rules of frequent eating 4-5 meals a day in small quantities.

The results will be slower and harder to achieve if these 3 main elements are not included in the program of gradually carving and modifying the figure.

Here we go:

We recommend all newcomers to start training the waist of men and women by choosing Underbust corset. A corset covering the bust is not as practical and comfortable as a corset under the bust. You should also remember to gradually accustom your body to pressure (more in the next article). We promote only pleasant wearing of corsets. If you try to do too much, too hard and too fast, or you start immediately with a full corset, you may quickly find that this is not a comfortable and pleasant experience. As with everything – use common sense and moderation! The narrowing of the waist is a process by the way of which you acquire healthy habits and gain self-esteem.

How to download the measure? Start in a corset 4-6 inches smaller than the natural waist circumference.

You need a centimeter so-called meter, standing in front of the mirror you measure the waist circumference at its narrowest point. In women it is usually (2-4 cm) above the navel and in men just below the navel. If your natural waist circumference is, for example, 34 inches, then you order a corset in 30 ”size. All over the world, the sizes of real corsets are given in inches, every two (18,20,22,24,26,28,30 …). For the record, 1 inch = 2.54 cm. We convert the size by dividing the result in centimeters by 2.54. The result is your waist size in inches.

We subtract 4 or 6 inches from this number.

Of course, the result will be numbers with decimal places. Sometimes the number can be between two sizes, e.g. 25, 34. Then we inflate the result up to size 26. If the number is e.g. 24, 79, we lower the size to 24 inches.

When to subtract 4 inches and when 6?

If you are currently wearing XL sizes and know that you can lose excess weight very quickly and you are determined to simultaneously apply a healthy restrictive diet then subtract from the waist circumference of 6 inches or when your natural waist circumference is greater than 34, 36 inches. The XXL plus body is softer and more plastic, it can be modeled more strongly.

Do I have to do all these calculations?

If you are buying a UNDERBUST corset, simply select the size from the size chart based on your natural waist size. Unless your natural waist circumference is more than 100 cm, then you can be tempted to subtract 6 inches instead of 4. Size calculations in the tables are given after subtracting 4 inches.
