They are a corset that is made with plastic boning. A fashion Corset will not reduce your waist or change your shape, however they are an attractive and more comfortable option for people who do not want to reduce their waist or change their shape, but like the way that corsets look.
Fashion Corsets are a very popular and extremely affordable option with ladies on hen nights, parties or just something different to wear out
Fashion Corsets are usually measured in clothing sizes, but we recommend you refer to the size chart for measurements.
To measure yourself for a fashion corset, you need to measure your bust, waist and hip and compare them against the size chart for your desired garment. Remember that fashion corsets are not designed to reduce your waist and you'll therefore have to think sensibly about whether it will fit. We would also recommend that if you have a larger bust (for example above a D cup) to go up a size or 2 as you can always lace the corset tighter to accommodate for a smaller waist.
Remember that a Fashion Corset will break or become damaged if you try to force it closed over measurements that are larger than it. The materials and construction are not as strong as a steel boned corset and you should treat these as garments with no stretch.
They are a form-shaping garment that incorporates metal bones. They can be worn as a top or an undergarment. Steel Boned Corsets are measured in inches and this dictates how many inches the corset measures around the waist when it is closed. Steel Boned Corsets are designed to improve posture, reduce your waist and sometimes boost your bust. Some corsets cover the bust whereas others sit underneath (also known as an Underbust corset).
A Steel Boned Corset is measured in inches relating to the waist measurement.
If a corset is a size 26, the waist of the corset will measure 26 inches when the back is fully closed. As Steel Boned corsets are designed to reduce the waist, you will want to purchase a corset that is smaller in the waist than you are.

Designer corsets are usually measured in bra sizes, but can also be measured in inches.
You should choose the corset size that matches your bra measurement. Designer corsets are very adjustable and are usually made with stretch, which means that each size can accommodate an A to D cup. So if you are a 32A, B, C, or D cup, (for example) a 32-inch size should fit you fine. If you are bigger than a D cup, you need to go up a size - so if you are a 32DD, go for a size 34, for example.
They are an undergarment that looks like a corset usually with cups for the breasts. Bustiers are made with plastic boning and will not reduce your waist. Bustiers are measured in clothing sizes or bra sizes. Think of it like a longer version of a bra or a more supportive camisole.
Basques are usually measured in bra sizes as they have cups, but can also be measured in inches or clothing sizes.
To measure for a bustier, you should measure your bust or Underbust accurately. If it is measured in inches, then you will need your Underbust measurement. This is the same as measuring your Underbust for a bra. You can also check this measurement against S/M/L etc. charts to make sure you've got the right size
