Compare your natural measuremens with this chart to identify your size. As a standard rule we suggest to order 1 size below your natural size, in order to have some margin to adjust fitting and a slight waist reduction of 2 inches. If yuo need a more pronounced shape you may chose an extra waist reduction of 2 or 4 inches.
EXAMPLE 1 – MODERATE SILHOUETTE – if you have a US size 6, natural waist 26 order a size 4: in this way, you can leave a little gap on the hips and bust for a best comfort, and fully close the corset on the waist to have a 5 cm reduction.
EXAMPLE 2 – ENHANCED SILHOUETTE – if you have a US size 6, natural waist 26, order a size 4 + extra reduction of 2”. This way you have bust and hip close to your measures and a total waist reduction of 4 inches. If you want a more dramatic shape you can add an extra reduction of 4”, that gives you a total waist reduction of 6”.
As a general rule, if you’re tiny your waist will not compress so far, while if you have a larger size we suggest you to try a 6” reduction.
