Many newbies get a corset and start tightening the laces just after a day or two in the hurry of getting faster results. Some of these women may not know that they have to season the corset before wearing it. On the other hand, even when some women know that they need to season their corsets, they are unsure when the corset is seasoned. This is why some such women face uncomfortable wear and pain at different places with the corsets on. The corset seasoning is essential if you are looking forward to having a comfortable experience with the corsets. Also, when the corset is not seasoned enough, it will not deliver the result that you are expecting.
How and when do you think the corset is seasoned and ready to train your waist?
Here are some of the discussions that can help you to know.
Do not go by Time:
You might have gone by different tutorials defining different time frames within which the corsets can get seasoned. Even when you are buying your corset from a manufacturer, they might mention a particular period for the corset seasoning. Some might say a week, while some may say a few days. But the fact is that nobody can say how much exactly a corset can take to season. It depends upon several factors.
● The Size and Type of Corset: If you have taken a corset of exactly your size, it should not take much Time to season up. This is because the corset will find its shape quite efficiently due to your body's right measurements. But if you have taken a size bigger than what you need, then the corset will take much more Time to season. Also, the seasoning will depend upon the type of corset that you have taken. Again if you have taken a corset that is exactly as per your body type, it will take comparatively lesser Time to season.
● The Time you are Wearing: The more number of hours you are wearing the corset, the faster the corset will season. It is much harder to wear an unseasoned corset for a longer time. So, this is the reason it takes Time for a corset to season. You have to increase the timing day by day as per your comfort level.
Signs that the Corset is Seasoned
Tenderness is Gone: When you buy a new corset, of course, it is tender and crisp. But this is not how the corset will remain always. It has to become soft during the process of seasoning. Moreover, seasoning of the corset is done to make the corsets soft so that you can wear them comfortably. So, one of the major signs that your corset has got seasoned is that it is not more stiff and tender. It has become quite soft and flexible. Of course, the boning part will remain stiff as it is there to exert pressure and make your waist mould. But the fabric should become much softer and comfortable to wear.
● No More Gaps: When the corset is stiff, and you wear it, you may experience some gaps between the corset and your skin at several places. This is again because the corset is not seasoned. As the days pass by, the corset slowly moulds into the shape of your body, and these gaps disappear. Now, how fast these gaps will disappear depends upon the number of hours you are wearing the corset. When the gaps are gone completely, it will offer you a feeling that the corset is hugging you tightly from all parts.
When you slip into a new corset, you will find it to be pinching at different parts, and you may not keep it on for an hour or so. But as time goes by, you will surely start increasing the Time. Not only the period of wearing the corset increases, but also you become able to wear the corset during that period much comfortable. Soon, you may be able to wear the corset throughout the day. So, when you are comfortable wearing the corset throughout the day, you should understand that your corset has got seasoned.
Seasoning of the corset is the first eminent step that you need to follow. But many women do not know how to season the corset or how a seasoned corset looks or feels. To summarize the whole discussion, the seasoned corset should be comfortable and should hug you in such a way that there is no gap from any part of the corset covering your body.
