TV110 size

Postby simoneP » Sun Jul 03, 2016 9:25 am

Hi all! After making a few latex corsets, I want to try sewing one. I've got the TV110 pattern and I'm trying to figure out what size to use.

I'm a 36" bust (32DD), 30" (uncorsetted) waist and 36" high hip. Looking at the size chart, I'm guessing I should go with size D (C-bust), E waist and D hip. Does that sound like the right choice?

Yes, based, on your numbers, that sounds like a good start. Something which might help, when you take your bust measure, take a full breath and hold it while you measure. As you tighten a corset around your ribs, it will expand your upper rib cage, and it will often increase your bust measure. If you find that you gain 1" or so, then I would recommend going with the size E, B cup instead.

Thanks Heather!

Inhaling did indeed increase my bust measurement with a little over an inch, so I'll go with your advise :)
