On this page I have collected frequently asked questions and added my answers. As a consequence, the contents are subjective.
What clothing do you normally wear when laced?
Preferably clochard jeans and a T-shirt or a sweater. In summer often skirts and blouses.
What sort of corset should I use if I want to wear close-fitting blue jeans?
One that keeps your stomach as flat as possible, and therefore has strong inflexible busks and can be further strengthened with a spoon busk.
What sort of corset should a bride wear?
A white corset is best. The dress should also fit the figure closely and be tailored so to show off the corseted figure. The bride should become accustomed to the corset before the wedding day so that she won’t have any problems with it on her "day of days".
Where can I get clothing suitable to wear over a tight corset?
Yes, that is a problem. A couple of suggestions for everyday clothing are given on my Web site. If you know how to sew, you can give your imagination full rein. In addition at flea markets you might find articles of clothing capable of being altered that could go well with a corset. Blouses and dresses can be taken in.
What sort of corset should I wear in summer if it is hot?
If it is not too hot to wear a corset, it is best to wear one made of a fabric that breathes (for example cotton), not too tight, and in which you feel comfortable.
Can I indulge in sports while wearing a corset?
That is not recommended. For sports it’s better to leave your corset at home. That’s better for the body and better for the corset. Mild physical activities, for example bicycle riding, are no problem in a corset.
Do you wear high heels when being corseted?
I wear shoes whose heels are most 8-9 cm high.
Are high heels preferred with a corset?
According to my experience, they are not unsuitable. I wear only shoes with heels higher than approximately 7 cm.
How high are your heels?
Various heights, around 8-10 cm at the highest. One pair is 12 cm high. I don’t like platform soles.
