Vlog: How to Lace Yourself into a Corset

Think you need a dresser, like the spoiled ladies of the yesteryear, to get in and out of a corset? I hear this sentiment repeated day after day, but let me tell you: it ain’t true!

Some of y’all just have to see it to believe it, so allow me to humble myself in front of a laptop camera for your benefit. Here is a detailed and very dorky tutorial rife with info and style tips on getting in and out of your corset.

It does take practice. I recommend practicing when you have no where to be, and no one waiting for you in the next room. Cozy up to a mirror, put on some music, treat your self to a delicious snack or some bubbly, and spend some time getting to know your corset. Lace in, lace out. Lace in, lace out. After about 10 times succession, you’ll be getting somewhere.

If performing fine motor activity behind your back is confounding you, it can help to put your corset on a pillow on your lap, so that you can practice lacing up facing it directly. If you can visualize what you are doing behind your back, it makes a world of difference, especially if it’s difficult for you to see over your shoulder in a mirror.

  1. thank you, fthank you, thank you, for doing this twice; once without and then again with the panel! Because I do admit that I did questioned how you did it with a panel in. KUDOS and love you guys so much.

  2. wonderful. Just got my first one and this helps. Only issue was black laces on black corset so it was a little hard to see your hand position at times. Very helpful otherwise. Now I can go try and see if I can replicate!
