Achievable Waist Reduction
The Waist Reduction rating is the maximum waist reduction achievable of the corset. Just because a corset is rated to a 4 or 5" waist reduction doesn't mean you have to wear them that tightly, you have the choice between comfort & control.
Not interested in Waist Reduction? This rating will give you an idea of the weight of the corsets in our collections, from lingerie to expert level corsetry, as well as the support they offer.
Disguise Rating Explained
The Disguise Rating is how invisible a corset is underneath clothing, relative to the other designs available in our collections.
All Corsets & foundation garments will be difficult to completely disguise underneath bodycon and very tight fitting sheer garments. Dresses with scooped backs can also be problematic when pairing with overbust designs.
Comfort Rating Explained
The Comfort Rating is how comfortable your corset will be. Some fabrics are less suited to longer periods of wear and more theatrical designs can become heavy if wearing all day.
Naturally you will find that your corset will be less comfortable the tighter you lace it, corsetry is about finding the balance between comfort & control that best suits you.
There’s more to the world of knickers than first meets the eye. Trust us, we know.
Women’s knickers have come a long, long way since the days of pantaloons and drawers. Believe it or not, it was only in the 1940s that what we consider to be ‘ women’s knickers’ today began to emerge! While in the 18th century women tended to go commando. Fashion then moved on slightly to the ‘pair’ of knickers - aptly named a ‘pair’ as they came in two separate pieces to be work on the legs. Fast forward to the 1930s and onwards, and we start to see pretty fabrics being used, as well as a dash of luxury with silk panties - and a much more practical underwear experience for the modern woman!
Nowadays, we consider knickers to be an essential component in our lingerie collections. And when they’re as gorgeous as ours, who can resist indulging once in a while?
