In this video I will discuss 3 ways to tie your corset laces. The first way is making a bow in the back, its easy and classic. The second way is using the v-lacing method which requires bringing the laces to the front and tucking the excess laces under the bottom of your corset. The last method is twisting your excess laces and tucking them inside the back of the corset. The last 2 methods are particularly great for corset stealthing (wearing your corset under your clothing). Hope you found this video helpful!
Hello everyone, and welcome back to our Glamorous Corset YouTube channel.
On today’s episode, we will be talking about three ways on how you can tie your corset laces.
For today’s demonstration, I am wearing our Jolie short corset. It’s one of our curvier styles, it creates an exaggerated hourglass shape.And I will now demonstrate for you the first way that we can tie our laces. This is the good old fashion making a bow in the back. This is the same type of bow we would make while tying our shoes or sneakers. Very simple. And now, we have our bow. Just in case, you are working with very long laces, you can make a double bow and on top of this bow, you can simply use the excess lacing to make another bow. Now, you have two bows on the back. And it will come out like this.
The second way you can tie your corset laces is using the V lacing method where we cross the laces in the back, without making a knot, just crossing the laces over, as such. Then bringing our laces to the front and we’ll be crossing over from right to left and we’ll be placing the lacing right under the corset. And I will be talking it under, all around, these other laces from the other side. I like to throw them over the shoulder, so they do not get in the way. As I’m tucking my laces under, all round under the corset, and I will continue doing this until I have no excess lacing left. So, this is a great method if you plan on wearing your corset underclothing and you prefer to corset stealth. This is a great way as you will not have any bulk or excess lacing bulging out in the back. As you can see, I’m done with one side. Now, I’ll bring my laces. From the other side, again, crossing over as such, and I will be placing the laces again, under the corset, working all around until I have nothing left to tuck. This is a great method. It conceals really well. My personal favorite. It takes a little bit more time than making the bow. But it works out great. I’ll use my fingers to make sure there is nothing sticking out. Now, we have the back, no bulk, no access. Everything is nicely put away. Again, this is called the V lacing method. And the reason we call it V lacing is because it creates the letter V in the front, if you can see.
The third and final way to tie your laces is grabbing all your laces in the back, kind of braiding the laces as such, and tucking it inside the corset, not under the corset. You can tuck it up, down, and similar to the previous method of V lacing, but we are not tucking it under the corset, all around. If you have very long laces, this can be a bit of a challenge. But again, this is great if you plan on corset stealthing, wearing your corset under your outfit. You don’t want the laces to stick out from the back and create a bulge.
Continue tucking upward, downward until you have no laces left to tuck. As you can see, I’m just about done here. I have nothing left, so this is how this method will look. Nice clean finish with my laces tucked inside as well.
I would also like to mention two things that we do not recommend you do when tying your laces. So, we would never recommend that you tie a knot. So, if you tie a knot, you go over once, and then you tie another knot right over it, we do not recommend this. For instance, if there is an emergency or you need to come out of your corset quickly this may be very difficult to undo and you may be stuck. So, we would not recommend this method ever.
And finally, guys, please do not wrap the laces around your waist. This is absolutely the most easiest way to tie the laces, but please don’t do it. The friction of the laces will eventually wear down the fabric. This is simple and easy to do, but don’t do it. Take the extra time and correctly tie your corset. This will only wear down the fabric and your corset will not last as long as it could have.

My name is Rachel, I am the owner of Glamorous Corset, a small business founded by me in 2010. Back In 2005, I was in a car accident that left me with a herniated disk. Much to my surprise I learned steel boned corsets were beneficial to several medical injuries including mine. I was always intrigued with corsetry, their history and their beautiful aesthetic. I love sharing knowledge about corsets, educating my wonderful readers and breaking the negative stigma related to corsetry. In combination with my years of research and personal experience I hope my articles are useful and can help anyone who has struggled with some of the same things I have. More about me…
