- If you are ordering a custom corset online they will tell you what measurements they need. This will probably include the measurements around your bust, just below your bust, your waist (the smallest part of your torso; below your ribs and above your hips).
- They will also need to know the vertical distance between each of these measurements in order to give you the best fit possible.
- If you are buying a custom made corset from a shop, they should fit you for the corset there, and you won't need to take any of your own measurements.

Measuring for a Boning Corset
Steel or Plastic boning is designed to reduce your waist size by 4-5”. If you’re looking for drastic waste reduction you need to start waist training which takes time. E.g If your waist measures 32'' we will still suggest you buy a 27'' or 28” corset.
You will need:
- Measure Tape: The tape should be comfortable – not tight enough to cause any protruding of your flesh from either side and not loose enough to slip a finger.
- A Straight Back: Stand straight; avoid holding your tummy in
- Full Length Mirror: To see yourself while you are measuring.
If you are petite in size and have a small bust, then try an underbust corset. This corset style will break up the span of your torso more. Not only will your bust look larger /fuller, it will also elongate the legs, creating a taller looking you.
Some corset brands are indeed waist cinchers. They might look like an ordinary waist band/belt but with a few corset features.
Finally, note that an underbust corset is far less obvious than an overbust corset underneath your clothing, it is also important to get a corset that gives you an hourglass figure and accentuates your attributes as a woman.
