Corsets are intended to cinch down several inches. We recommend that you order 5-7 inches below your natural waist measurements to allow for cinching. Plus sizes (waists over 38 inches) should order 7-10 inches below.Plus sizes (waists over 38 inches) should order 7-10 inches below. 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 laced shut. The hips will measure about 12 inches larger than the waist, and the underbust is about 6-7 inches larger when laced shut.
