Corsets are intended to cinch down several inches. We recommend that your order 4-7 inches down below your natural waist measurement to allow for cinching. Plus sizes (waists over 38 inches) should order 6-10 inches below. The mesh lays closer to the body, so if you are between sizes, size down. The cotton and satin version run true to size. So if you have a 29 inch waist, we would recommend that you purchase a size 24. A size 24 will have a 24” waist when fully closed. The top edge will measure about 2-3” more than the waist, and the bottom edge about 7-8” more.
