Here you find an adviser and guide about corset wearing, figure training and tightlacing on the topic “On which occasions can I wear a corset?”
Which associations do you have when you hear the word ‘corset’? Maybe fainting, discomfort, agony, etc.? Unfortunately this is the case with many people. The following compilation of questions and answers, based on my own experiences, is to do away with the corset’s negative reputation, to list its positive effects and to inform you about the practical use of corsets today, in our time. After having read this information you should associate corsets with elegance, grace and attractivity.
On which occasions can I wear a corset?
Always! Or better: whenever you want to. The previous paragraph about clothing tells you that you can wear corsets on every possible occasion. I can think of hardly any event where corsets are inappropriate (except for during sport sessions or when taking a shower or on board a plane for security reasons).
Once you have become accustomed to your corset it makes sense to wear it as often as possible. The longer and the more often you wear it, the less will you notice it. If it’s not too tight, that is if you feel good, you can even wear it permanently. By ‘permanently’ I mean day and night. I can assure you that the corset won’t hinder you from sleeping well, if you feel good in it (which is mostly the case after you’ve got used to it). The great advantage of permanent corset-wearing is that your body does not ever again have to adjust to new circumstances, I mean that it doesn’t regain its original shape during the night and the corset shape during the day. It accelerates the process of getting used to corsets; and you need not to lace yourself up every morning again (this last point is important for me, as I like to stay in bed as long as possible. Nevertheless you should remove the corset once a day to care for your skin (as I mentioned above), but after that you should put it on again. In this short time you body won’t expand too much, so that it’s easy to close the corset again.
If you consider all this to be too extreme, you can wear your corset for a few hours per day or on special occasions only, i.e. when you go to the theatre etc. But then you won’t feel as comfortable in it than if you’d wear it permanently. In this case you should put it on some hours before the event; that is in order to become reasonably accustomed to it.
I wear my corset permanently and hardly notice it any more. I even feel a bit uncomfortable without it. The corset hardly affects me, I even ride my bike every day.
