If you’ve purchased your waist training corset from Glamorous Corset, it would have arrived pre-laced for your convenience. In case you purchased your corset elsewhere or would like to lace it with different lacing, we’ve provided step-by-step instructions on lacing your corset. The corset lacing method outlined below uses just one very long lace and reduced wear on the fabric of your corset. It is also easier to tighten evenly and gives a better finished look when fully tightened.
Thread the lace through the top 2 eyelets so that the horizontal lace is on the inside of the corset, as indicated. Make sure the two ends of the lace are even in length.
Take the lace on the right side and thread it through the next available eyelet on the left, making sure that the lace remains outside the corset until you thread it through the eyelet. Do the same for the left lace. The laces should now form an “X” on the outside of the corset and have passed through to the inside of the corset.
Repeat step 2 until you reach the waistline of the corset, where we will create the puller loop which is used to tighten the corset once we have finished lacing. The lace must be on the outside of the corset to create the puller loop.
Take the lace on the right side and thread it through the next available eyelet immediately below on the same side, making sure that the lace remains outside the corset until you thread it through the eyelet, thus forming a loop. Do the same for the left lace. The laces should now have passed through to the inside of the corset.
Repeat step 2 until you reach the bottom of the corset. Adjust the slack in the laces, evenly throughout the length of the corset, so that you have about four inches of slack between the two sides of the corset. Tie off the laces at the bottom of the corset, without tightening the corset further.
Pull on the puller loops we created in step 4 until the corset is sufficiently tight. Once tightened, fasten the puller loops with a standard shoelace knot.

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…
