Here you find an adviser and guide about corset wearing, figure training and tightlacing on the topic “Which problems could arise from corset-wearing?”
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.
Which problems could arise from corset-wearing?
This is the point where people have most doubts about corset-wearing. I’m going to remove them now: A corset only causes problems when it is too tight or when it doesn’t fit correctly! Otherwise - and other corsetting women will tell you the same - it is comfortable to wear corsets, and corsets do not decrease, but increase your joys of life.
Certainly corset-wearing has some strange effects, but you actually can’t call them problems:
- your breathing capacity is smaller (you notice that only in case of sportive efforts (i.e. stair climbing)!),
- it is easily possible to eat and drink normal amounts of food,
- your torso’s flexibility is reduced.
You should note the following concerning these three points:
- A correctly fitting corset does not affect your breathing at rest! If you know in advance that you will have to make sportive efforts you can leave the corset at home. After all, in this case you wouldn’t wear high heels or tight-fitting jeans.
- A correctly fitting corset does not affect your eating normal portions! But anyway, if you were wearing a tight evening dress without a corset you probably wouldn’t eat too much, either. Besides, this is a positive aspect if you look at it as an automatic mechanism to prevent you from overeating!
- Your spine will be fine! For you will automatically bend down by flexing your knees instead of your torso. This corresponds exactly to what orthopaedic surgeons recommend! So you see that the corset protects your spine!
