cuddly-christmas-2016Despite all the “buzz” out there about “waist training” popularized by social media icons such as Kim Kardashian, there is almost an equal amount of negative press I see about corsets every day on my Google Alert feed.

Most of this negative press equates per se moving some body organs around with a corset with damage to the body. Other comments from corset-doubting doctors quoted in the articles seem not based on actual clinical experience, or are based on one example only. In addition, we never read how many corseting clients those doctors have actually treated.

Mere movement of organs by corseting — as most of us know, is a false “danger” to begin with, when you consider how a woman’s body changes during pregnancy.

The other point of negativity I read these days, is that corset waist training doesn’t work.

It does work–if you work it, and go about the process in a moderate, common-sense and dedicated way for a remarkabley short period of weeks or months.

And by “dedicated” I do NOT mean corseting 23 hrs a day, suffering, starving yourself, or military exercising!

Here’s a summary below of HOW waist training works from my new book Corset Waist Training, a primer on easy, fun and fashionable waistline reduction ($14.95 online pdf file).

Effective waist training isn’t magic and it doesn’t take a humongous effort (but yes, some effort is required!). It doesn’t take years to accomplish better posture, a tighter belly, and a reduced waistline.

We’re now accepting coaching student applications for our three-month Waist-Training Coaching Program so please inquire if you are interested! We can provide you a sterling training corset, or you can train in one you have already purchased.

With all best wishes for a warm, cuddly, corseted Holiday Season and Bright New Year!



1. You eat less. Long-term continual pressure on your waistline restricts the amount of food that you can comfortably eat during a meal.

2. You feel full faster and hunger dissipates. Corseting minimizes the stretch of your stomach. Hunger pangs diminish and can disappear.

3. You take your time when eating and make better food choices. In order to avoid an uncomfortable sensation, heartburn, or nausea, you slow down and take smaller bites. You chew each bite longer and more thoroughly. You choose less fatty foods which are easier to digest.

4. You enjoy better posture. Corseting teaches you to stand up straight, hold your belly in, and remember how to do so when you remove the corset.

5. You’re motivated. You know the process has worked for others, and you anticipate it will work for you. You set reasonable goals and maintain an optimistic, positive outlook that moves you forward.

6. You feel better about yourself, which translates into improved self-care.

Hollywood Starlet Emma Watson Misses the Magic of Custom corsets (sigh…)

dancing-lynnIsn’t it just precious how the new media and Hollywood starlettes refuse to know the facts and mindlessly repeat antiquated prejudice against the corset?


Emma Watson to be featured in a remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 2017, gave up on corsets so she could remain mobile for her movie role.


How can she NOT know (or for that matter, fashion reporters not know) YET IN 2016, THAT CUSTOM CORSETS, well seasoned and properly fit — permit almost perfect torso mobility. One would not want to precipitously bend and bend again at the precise waistline: that will tend to weaken the busk and snap it. Other than that there is almost no limit to torso mobility.

For best mobility, choose spiral steels for your boning, get the right fit, take your time in getting used to wearing it and lace down slowly, and lo! You like many of our clients and me, can go dancing the night away from ballroom to hip hop, wearing your corset — with nary a rip in sight and nary a cramp in torso.

There are even times that you might get the perfectly mobile corset by choosed wisely and well from pre-made corsets. CHECK OUT OUR HUGE WINTER INVENTORY SALE TO SEE IF SOMETHING MIGHT WORK FOR YOU (AMAZING PRICES!)

It’s clear that mobility while corseted is fact–and has been for eons. See the description of author Sarah Chrisman who rides a Victorian bicycle miles while snugly corseted, in Victorian Secrets (published 2013).

Who can answer why folks continue to spout such nonsense about the corset?

Best I can come up with, is our Puritanical reversion against sex and sexuality, plus woman’s body revealed (not to mention self determination when she chooses to wear a corset and how tightly she chooses to lace; no one is in charge of that other than herself!).
