One of the most popular items here at Glamour Boutique is our line of corsets. One misconception that some people have is that a corset is strictly for waist training. But as well as adding a feminine shape, it can also be a sexy add on to your outfit. For those of you that are looking for a corset to wear in the bedroom, with your newest blouse and jacket, or at a drag show, we want to give you some of our top picks to help you flaunt that new shape along with some tips on which corset will work best for you.
Since these are corsets for men and will fit you precisely, you should have no problem finding that perfect corset that will have you looking as femme as can be. Let’s get started.
Full Body Corsets – Full Body Corsets give the most coverage of any corset hence the name. Unlike our other corsets that stop below the chest line, the full body corsets cover from just above the breasts down to your hips. Depending on how much breast coverage you’d like, you can get either a full cup or half cup (also known as a demi-cup). Since the tight lacing gives an hourglass figure, it also creates the illusion of larger breasts. The full body corset helps enhance that even further by adding a cup size to existing breast flesh. So if you don’t wear breastforms, you can have the illusion of breasts in a full body corset. And since our corsets are designed with the male torso in mind, they won’t flare in the lower waist and hip area like corsets designed for the female body do.
Full body corsets are also a great option for drag queens. Drag queens will wear a full body corset over their clothes to create a very femme look Some clothing ideas if you’d like to wear your full body corset as a top, is to wear it with a skirt or a nice pair of pants or leggings with a blazer up top. Take the blazer off to show some extra skin for extra sexiness. Some of our customer favorites are the PK-1 Long Torso Full Corset and the Pink Corset with Half Cups that you see in the photo above which when accompanied by a pink tutu screams fun and sexy. Of course, you can always take things to the next level with the Vollers Full Corset which comes with cups and shoulder straps. This is a great corset to wear as a top as part of an outfit. Jeans or a nice pair of femme slacks with a blazer would pair well with this corset offering both elegance and an amazing feminine shape. This is one of our true luxury corsets.
Short Waist Cinchers – Our smallest corsets are the short waist cinchers. They’re about 8.5 to 10 inches in length. These corsets offer reduction to the immediate waist area but don’t cover the lowest part of your belly, so if you’re looking for more coverage, go with a longer underbust corset. Cinchers can also be worn either on top or underneath your clothing. They’re a great accent piece over a blouse or since it has less of a footprint, can be worn under your work clothes to continue your waist training. If you are trying to lose weight, steel boned cinchers such as ours are also known to curb your appetite while being worn. That’s a big plus! If you’re looking for a bedroom accessory, some of the cinchers come with garter tabs to attach to your stockings. Just think how sexy you will look with some gartered stockings, heels and your corset. All other clothing is optional. If you are looking to do some serious waist training, we can help you get started with our 2 for $75 waist training corsets. That’s a can’t miss deal! Our Vollers Corsets come through again here if you want to go more glam and luxuriousness with your waist training. And since they are made to order, you will have endless options to choose from.
Corsets and Waist Training – Speaking of waist training corsets, we are always asked about waist training and helping our girls get a more feminine figure. The best place to start is sizing. We always recommend taking your measurements at your belly button as that is the part of your midsection that is the largest spot. Once you get that size, you should go down 4 to 6 inches in the corset size. As an example, if your waist measures 36 at the belly button, you would want a size 30 corset. This ensures full cinching once the laces are tightened. To properly waist train, you should wear your corset as often as possible. If you are completely new to corsets, you should try wearing it for a few hours a day to get comfortable. Once you are comfortable, you should move up to full days or as long as you are able to stay cinched. Over time, you will see results and your shape will change and you should lose a couple of inches. Remember, to waist train like this takes time and dedication. Our Underbust Corset for Waist Training is a perfect way to go and with 5 color options to choose from, there’s something for everyone. One last thing to note. All of our corsets are steel boned. That is extremely important if you plan on waist training as plastic boning will not help in waist reduction as it is not strong enough. Plastic boned corsets are better as a fashion accessory than a waist trainer.
