Are you interested in wearing a corset? Maybe you found a picture online and thought it looked beautiful, or maybe you love the results it gets you.
Well, no matter what your reasons, I have a few lessons that I want to share with you before you start. These are all from personal experience, so take note ladies!
1. You Need to Start Slowly
Okay, I can’t stress this one enough. You need to start slowly! Don’t start with the tightest possible setting and try to wear it for nine hours. You will not cope and there is no way you’ll enjoy it.
Wearing a corset is not a sprint and you need to be prepared for this before you start. Instead, start slow. Wear your corset for a few hours at a time. Gradually increase time and tightness, and you will start seeing the results (without compromising your health and safety!)
I know it can be really, really tempting, but trust me on this one. It is so worth the wait!
2. Your Posture Will Improve
I didn’t expect this one. I knew that a corset would make me look great, but I didn’t anticipate that it would improve my posture too. When I wear a corset, I find that I stand up straighter. I also bend more gracefully and move in a totally new way. This has its pros and cons, but I honestly feel like the benefits far outweigh any awkwardness.
I feel far more elegant and I have been told that it absolutely shows.
3. You Can’t Overeat
You are probably used to eating a certain amount- not anymore! When you’re wearing a corset, you will feel full a lot quicker because of the pressure. Make sure you take this into account if you go out to eat in your corset. You don’t want to make yourself sick, and you don’t want to waste perfectly good food either.
Honestly, over-eating is totally off the table when I wear my corset. I think that’s a good thing, to be honest, but it is something you should definitely be aware of before you start.
4. You Feel Sexy
You feel amazing! Like I said before, you will find that your posture improves. You look incredible, you stand tall and you feel amazing.
If you have a decorative corset, you feel even better. I will not lie to you- I feel so, so sexy in my corset. I’ve worn pretty lingerie before, but this is a whole new experience and it is one that I recommend highly.
It’s elegant, feminine and empowering and I can’t get enough of it. If you start wearing a corset, you might not want to stop!
So there you go, some personal wisdom from a corset-wearer. Remember, wearing a corset is a personal choice and, while it can be uncomfortable when you’re first starting, it should make you happy and not cause you any pain! Consult your doctor if you’re worried, take it slow and I guarantee that you will feel absolutely amazing!
