Overbust corset

So you have decided that you want to wear a corset, but you are not sure where to start? Whether you should start with an overbust or underbust corset?

Underbust corset or overbust recommendation

At YourWaistTrainer we are regularly asked by novice corset lovers whether they should start with an underbust or overbust corset. Generally, we recommend starting with an underbust corset for the following reasons:

Get used to the corset

As a corset novice, it is generally easier to get used to an underbust corset than to an overbust corset. In addition, a corset novice also finds it easier to do day-to-day activities with an underbust corset.

Bust and waist measurements

With an overbust corset, the bust and waist must be in certain proportions to wear it comfortably, which is not the case with an underbust corset. Rherefore it is a more accessible garment, regardless of your body measurements or body shape.

Corset styling

Although overbust corsets can also be beautifully combined with various clothes, it is generally easier to combine an underbust corset with other items of clothing.
