As you grow up, your clothes start getting tight and do not fit you. The same thing can also happen with your Corset. If you have bought it years back and you are trying to wear it now, it may happen that it may not fit you. If you got pregnant and left waist training for a couple of months, you may also find that the Corset may not fit you.So, what should you do in such a case? Many of you may get disheartened seeing that the Corset you bought out of extreme love does not fit you.
Here are some of the options that you can make use of in such a case.
The modesty panel of a corset can get difficult if you wish to get into an old corset. If you have decided that you will wear this Corset again, one way is to detach the modesty panel of your Corset. Take out the modesty panel, and the Corset may be all ready for you once again. But still, try to wear it comfortably once to check whether it fits you or not.
Before landing up to the conclusion, one of the major questions that you can ask is whether the Corset was seasoned or not. There can be several times when you bought the Corset but did not season it. If this is the case, you should try to season it before going for any alterations or other tricks. If the Corset were not seasoned, you would find it getting comfortable as you start wearing it with each passing day. If, by chance, the Corset is not getting comfortable, this means you need to find out some other ways for it.
If you have gained weight and the Corset has gone tight, you can do a bit of experimenting with the lacing to get into the Corset comfortably. There is no harm in having some gap between the lacing edges. If you are wearing the Corset continuously, slowly, the waist and the belly will start getting reduced in their sizes. As you notice a reduction in the size, you will find that the gap in between the lacing edges is also reducing. Soon, there will be a time when the edges will be getting so much close that the gap will close up completely. This means that you have got back to your size once again that you had a few months or years back.
If you have tried out all the above-mentioned tricks but have not succeeded in getting appropriate results, this means that you need to seek the help of a professional. Earlier, women mastered altering their own corsets so that they do not have to waste time and money. But women do not have the skill of making altering corsets. In such a case, getting in touch with the tailoring experts is the only solution.
But while doing so, make sure that you are not getting in touch with a usual tailor who is just skilled in altering dresses. Corsetry needs skill and is an art. Hence, you should offer the Corset for altering only to someone who has experience in working on corsets.
There can be several ways how the corsets can be altered to make them fit for you once again.
- If you have lost some weight, you must add hip ties to the Corset’s bottom edge.
- Another way is by adding gores to the Corset’s top edge.
- For certain sizing issues in terms of length, you should have a detailed talk to the experts.
While there are some alterations that can be done, there are some alterations that can be quite expensive.
If you see that making alterations to your older Corset is costing you a huge amount of money, it is much better to spend this money on buying a new corset.
With passing time, not only the size but also the body patterns may change. Hence, it may happen that you do not require another size, but you require a new style of Corset now. Understand your current body structure to know whether the old Corset will actually fit you or not. If trying some of the tricks does not do the job and alterations are costing you much, it is much preferable to get a new corset instead.
If you have left a corset for a long time without wearing it, it can happen that it may not fit you, and this is quite obvious, while in some cases, there are some options that you can try, in some other cases, there is no other option left other than replacing it with a new one.
