Start by lacing up the corset after the drawing. In the middle of the brace are the two loops
clamping (eyelet 7 & 8). When you reach the point A (eyelet 6), put away loeillet B (B eyelet
inside) and form a loop back over previous loeillet C (eyelet 6). And so on
jusquen down. You do the same loop Lautre other side of the corset. You finish your lacing
by a tight knot.

Tightening your corset with help

For the vast majority of corsets, lacing seffectue back. Thus, tightening your
corset requires a lot of energy. We recommend you seek help for lace.
Make sure the laces are as apart as possible (on average 12 to 15 cms)
Check the up / down, theoretically the male pins of the comb (1 / 2 piece of metal supporting pins
female) are on the left.
Clip the pin of the comb, starting with the lower level, and trying to put the top one, the
others should follow.

Retrieve the soft bottom of the lace in the middle, pui slack lace up the middle.
Raise your arms and move from time to time for your body to take its place in the interior and pull
gently. You can enter the stomach to relieve the compression and help tightening.
Do not overtighten at chest. Cest quil at this point become uncomfortable if it is
too tight. It is best to leave a few centimeters douverture between the edges to avoid too

corset and slip below the brace at the bottom. You can hang the strands of 30 cms.

Tightening your corset without help
Roll the 2 sides of the corset to twist it into a roll, and spread up and down by pulling

To begin to put the corset we recommend denfiler your tights or stockings, as well as your
shoes if you have to do the laces because you can not bend down easily.
If you wear down, lay the corset completely open on the bed to the bed and lextérieur plan
although the side of the comb with the male pins will be placed on the left of your belly. Put yourself
back to bed and hook the garters from behind. Hard to do when corseted.
Take the 2 sides at the waist and pull of 30-40 cms and temporarily tie the washing dune
loop slightly, just to maintain it. Then repeat the back and gradually pull (never
suddenly). Repeat size up to the top, bottom and due up to the waist. Alternately pull on

Tips and recommendations
Avoid leaning forward because of the rigidity of the corset, follow the small simple things
like going down the back straight while bending the knees to pick up something on the ground.
Especially not attempt to manually undo the busk without first completely loosen the laces.
Normally, you should not be, otherwise you could labîmer and hurt you.
