Amazing first that I would definitely recommend!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered this corset about 11 days ago. The main reason I chose this one was because design suggested it would be great for wearing under clothing and let me tell you, it works perfectly. It showed up today and the first thing I did was put it on, or try, it took me about five minutes to get on, mainly because I was doing it by myself, and I haven't taken it off yet. The material is sturdy, though it does smell a little funny. I would definitely recommend this corset. The sizing was perfect since I ordered by using the sellers recommendations. I got an XL and my measurements are 40 28 36.

BY FAR THE BEST RULE OF THUMB is that if it is sold by an American co., the sizes will be close to what you normally wear. If foreign, especially from China or the UK (no bigotry, just fact), you will probably need to go 2 sizes LARGER to get a decent fit. Also keep in mind that the most important measurement for a corset is your waist, not your bust. You should order whatever size is no less than 4 inches smaller than your actual waist. Also, corsets are designed to have a very significant difference between your bust size and your waist size (ex.: bust 41" with waist 32") If there is very little difference between the 2 measurements, it will be difficult to find a corset that fits (your best bet there is an UNDER-BUST corset. If you follow these rules of thumb, you should have pretty good luck and look great!!!
