Corset measurments

Postby smt22 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 5:23 am

I'm looking at starting on my first Edwardian corset. Should I take my measurements over a Victorian corset, or is it better to measure over no corset?

Thanks!

You can use your Victorian corseted measurements. You may find that you can go 1" smaller in the waist, and end up with a bit larger bust. But the hip should be the same in both.
