Steel Boned Corsets

steel-boned-corsetsWomen have always prized their curves and wearing a corset is the perfect way to accentuate what you have and create what you don’t. Wearing a corset takes some getting used to and there are a few things to remember – like not moving and twisting too quickly and not making the waist too tight in the beginning. But before you get to these issues, you must first choose your corset. There are options when it comes to choosing the make, length and type of corset you want to buy.

A truly curvaceous and sexy look can be accomplished by investing in a steel boned corset. By choosing a steel boned corset you are going to have a longer-lasting, strong item that is generally stronger than those ribbed with plastic. They are also, most often, higher quality than plastic stays (ribbing).

Corsetieres choose steel boning because, in general, it forms to a woman’s shape well and can easily be pre-shaped to enhance the natural line of the body to create a more shapely look. It is perfect for a woman who likes a tightlaced corset. It also provides additional back support, ensuring a straight back and sexier silhouette. And, importantly for a woman’s comfort, there is a slight degree of flexibility in its movement.

There are two predominant basic types of steel boning – enamel steel and spiral steel, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Enamel steel can not be sewn in to extreme curves, while spiral steel can. The spiral steel’s flexability is not appropriate for all styles of corset, but the enamel steel’s more rigid composition ensures it is usually used in the correct manner. The boning will be a different width, length and material depending on the decision of the corsetieres.

Whether you wear your corset in the bedroom, under your clothes or on a night out, once you are ready to take it off you must be gentle with it. Do not rush out of a corset. Ensure the lacing is loose enough before unhooking the clasps. If possible, have someone help you out (and in) of the corset. To clean your corset it is recommended that you take it to a trusted dry cleaner. While cleaning at home is possible, it is a delicate and difficult process.

Steel has been used for corsetry for hundreds of years, but, unlike whalebone, which has been replaced, it endures as a favored choice of boning for high-quality, exceptionally sensual, corsets.
