Measuring around your body, holding the tape measure firmly but not too tight, it shouldn't interrupt the line of the skin or the corset may pinch. Make sure that the tape measure is even and level right the way around your body to ensure the most accurate measurement.

|Corsets - Tight-fitting, body-enhancing undergarments used to be worn by women to create an hourglass-shaped silhouette. A traditional corset features boning and either a lace-up or a hook-and-eye closure, with a bust-to-hip length. Modern lingerie variations of the corset tend to be less restrictive and more comfortable.|
|Under Bust Corsets - Very similar to corsets but will rise just below the under wire of your bra. Excellent for daily wear and the occasional night on the town.|
|Basques - Also very similar to corsets but are always worn as underwear and tend to be boned but much less structured than a corset. Basques are tight fitting and cover the breasts whilst being shorter. A basque will give definition to the waist and smooth the stomach under clothes but it will not alter the body shape as much as a corset will.|
|Bustiers - These sexy long bras extend from bosom to hip to offer support and shape. Some bustiers have detachable garters, flexible boning to give a desired shape, optional shoulder straps or lace-up closures. Bustiers and longline bras are pretty much the same.|
|Waspies - A type of corselette made in 1947 to achieve the ‘nipped in’ waist effect. ‘Waspie’ is the nickname for this underwear garment. Women would wear a waspie with a special type of bra that lifted the breasts higher than normal. This combination of complicated underwear was worn by women in their forties who wanted to look as though they had retained perky breasts of their teenage years.|
