In this video, Miss Audrey Monroe is going to be showcasing how she tight laces her Glamorous Corset steel boned corsets.
Hey everyone. Welcome back to my channel. I’m Miss Audrey Monroe and today, we’re going to be bringing you another Glamorous Corset video. This one in particular is going to be show casing how I tight lace my corsets. So, if that is something that your interested in seeing, then please come hang out with me.
So, it’s important to note before I get started in the tutorial that I have spent a great deal of time seasoning this particular corset. Now, what seasoning means, and you can go back and watch one of the other videos from this playlist that talks about what seasoning is. But it’s basically breaking in your corset so that it molds to your body. Once it’s molded to your body, it’s so much easier to tight lace yourself, get in and out of your corset without help. So, I hope that you enjoy this very short how to. And please let me know in the comments thread which corset videos you would like to see next. So, I’m going to go ahead and get started with the how to.
So, when you first get your corset, you’re going to notice these four to five metal grommets in the front. This is what is known as the bust. You’re going to want to unclip that. And that’s going to expose the privacy panel and the stays, which are the laces that go up the back. The first thing you’re going to want to do is get yourself into your corset by unclasping the corset, wrapping it around you, and then clasping and locking those metal clasps in the front together.
If it’s an under bust corset, you’re going to want to make sure that it is sitting directly under your breast tissue and right on the hip. Now, what I’m doing here, is using my fingers to move that privacy panel over to the right side of my corset in order to keep it as straight as possible as I’m tight lacing myself. When you are doing this on your own, you’re not going to have anyone back there to help you. So, getting yourself straight in the beginning is going to make the ease of tight lacing a lot easier.
Now, with Glamorous Corsets they have infinity stays, which means they go into a loop. This makes it a lot easier to tight lace yourself. Because really what you’re going to be doing is pulling from the top and the bottom. So, you can see right here on the loop there is a top portion and if I pull those down towards my rear, the top around the bust is going to come in. When I grab the two on the bottom and pull it up toward my bust, the hip area is going to come in. And what you do is basically go back and forth between pulling down toward your rear and pulling up toward your bust to keep the shape of the corset pulling you in creating the hourglass silhouette.
Now, I like to go in and sort out my privacy panel as best as I possible can. I know it’s not perfect by any means. But it is the best that I can do myself. And I’m okay with that. So, here I am, just continuing to pull the stays up and pull the stays down. Bringing the corset in as evenly as I can. My problem area is that when you are tight lacing by yourself, at least for me, it’s hard for me to get the nip of the waist completely closed. So, you’re going for evenness when you are tight lacing yourself and not necessarily perfection.
So, once that’s said and done, we are going to have that hourglass silhouette formed, bringing in the waist, emphasizing the hip, and then we are going to have these stays left over. So, what do we do with them? Well, we can, option one, tie them off directly in the small of our back creating a small bow. It’s my least favorite way to wear my stays. Option two, is to bring the stays around to the front, this is what I do most often, and tie them off in a bow. However, this is not the best or healthiest way to wear your corset because it could warp the bust.
So, I have found a third option on how to wear the stays, which I’m going to show you right now. Instead of bringing the stays around to the front where your belly button is, you start tying them off in the small of your back and then instead of making a bow, you bring the stays up underneath the bottom part of your corset. Tucking it tightly up and under. I like to start on the right side and then move over to the left. Because of the tension that this will put on the back, it’s also not as easy for you to walk out of your corset. Now, I’m doing air quotes here that you guys can’t see. But walking out of your corset basically means that throughout the day the stays loosen, and the corset loosens with it. And sometimes, I have to go back in and re-tight lace myself. So, when I wear it, this version, with the stays pulled taught with the bottom, it helps keep that from happening.
Again, these are my tips. I hope that you enjoyed this very quick tight lacing session. And of course, leave me with any comments or if you have any tips, I would love to read yours.
Glamorous Corsets has just made it so easy for you to do it yourself by creating those loops, those infinity loops and the stays, which is your tight lacing strings. So, this is going to give you the flexibility to pull down and pull up so that you are working both the hip and bust area evenly to really create comfortable motion while you are wearing the corset. And to help it be seasoned evenly and create even wear on the corset so that you’re not hurting the bust. The bust is the very front of the corset. If that gets warped or damaged in any way, your corset is basically trash. And you should pitch it.
Leading up to that, my next video will be discussing how to care and maintain for your corsetry. So, I hope that you will tune in for that.

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…
