When you buy a bra, do you go for bargain basement junk that isn’t going to provide the comfort and support you need throughout the day? No, you pay for the fit and features that offer you lift, support, and the comfort and appearance you prefer.
So why, oh why would you cheap out when buying a corset? Do you want it to bulge and buckle, showing every lump, bump, and ripple on your midsection? No! You want it camouflage flaws, suck in that waistline, and make you look like Jessica-freakin’-Rabbit. Am I right? Well, honey, if you want a miracle, you’re going to have to pay for it.
The good news is that you needn’t visit a snake-oil salesman to see instant results. Investing in a steel boned corset delivers the tonic for your torso. Here are several reasons why you should always splurge for the real deal instead of skimping on substandard slimmers.
If you’re interested in waist training, a steel boned corset is literally the only suitable option, and I don’t mean the current usage of literally (like, I’m literally dying), but the actual version of the word, by which you should take it as an irrefutable fact. The rigid steel boning is essential if you want to see a significant and semi-permanent reduction in your waistline over time. If you’re looking to lose several inches off your waist, you cannot do it without steel boning.
Pretty much any corset, from a waspie to a longline, will help to improve your posture. It’s hard to slouch with a wreath of steel boning encircling your core. Slumping over is not only uncomfortable, it’s practically impossible.
It is a common misconception that waist training will cause your core muscles to atrophy. This is really only possible if you’re doing it wrong. When you follow a proper waist training regimen, you will not only improve your posture, but your core will be forced to work harder to keep you from slouching while you wear your corset.
Relief of back pain
Often back pain is caused by a combination of poor posture and weak core muscles. As noted above, both of these issues are addressed by proper waist training with a steel boned corset, so it’s no surprise back pain also improves as a result.
Steel boned corsets can be worn under or over clothing, allowing you the opportunity to express your unique style and personality through your wardrobe. While cosmetic corsetry can also be worn on the outside of clothes, the lack of structure could cause unfortunate bumps, buckling, and other issues as you bend and move. You won’t have this problem with a steel boned corset thanks to rigid structure that stays put.
Your steel boned corset can amp up the relative sexiness of any outfit in a couple of ways. Whether you wear it under or over clothing, it can help to create gorgeous, feminine, eye-catching curves. In addition, wearing it over clothing can add some serious spice to an otherwise ho-hum outfit. Even pairing your corset with staples like a t-shirt or buttoned blouse can cause heads to swivel your way.
Not everyone is keen to display corsetry for the whole world to see. The good news is you can still flash it for that special someone strapped to your bedposts.
I get it – the high price of a steel boned corset can be a shock, especially if you’re looking at custom options. However, it’s well worth the price tag for the benefits you’ll gain, not to mention longevity and use value.
If you plan to use your steel boned corset for waist training, you know you’re going to be strapped in for hours each day. That’s an awful lot of usage. You want a product that’s going to fit properly and offer both comfort and longevity. While other types of boning will bend, warp, and deteriorate more quickly, steel boning is built to stand the test of time.
Consider for a moment what you might pay for cheapie corset with plastic boning. It could cost significantly less than steel boned competitors. However, there’s a good chance you’ll replace that corset several times over while your steel boned corset lasts and lasts. The cheapie’s not looking like such a bargain any more, especially considering it won’t provide the same comfort, appeal, or results as a steel boned option.
In other words, you’re much better off paying a little more up front for a lot more value in the long run. Investing in a steel boned corset is the best way to narrow your waistline, gain the hourglass shape you covet, and look and feel your best. Longevity of the product is icing on the cake.
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…
