Most well-known corset companies carry corset sizes for natural waists up to and around 40″. However, what if your waist size is over that number? What if it’s over 50 or 60 inches? Don’t worry because there are plenty of great plus size waist cincher (plus size waist trainer) as well as steel-boned corset. In fact you may even notice that the plus sizes tend to sell out faster because they are so popular.
Full-figured people deserve beautiful corsets too, and in this article I’m going to share with you some information to larger clients.
Plus size waist cincher may be more expensive than regular size
Please note that some of these companies charge a markup for larger sizes while others don’t. If you would like to learn more about any of the following corset companies and their pricing policy, please contact them directly.
Or, if you take a look some corset branches in Amazon, you can see each of them have range of prices. When you choose the size, you will get the specified price. Plus size can show you the highest prices in that range.
Measuring yourself accurately
Weight and measurement are used to help you define the right size. To get the most accurate measurement of your weight, do it first thing in the morning. You’ll surely weigh more once you have had breakfast. Be sure to also take off your clothing, this can be an added few pounds. Lay your weighing scale on a flat surface. It can get a wrong reading if you place it on a carpet or irregular surface. Concrete or wooden floor is best.
You also need a tape measure to take your waistline measurement at that time. You may do this before or after you weigh yourself. You should measure your hips and the smallest part of your torso. Do not suck in your stomach. Just relax, wrap the tape measure around our waist and wherever the end meets is your waistline in inches.
Some of the companies that cater plus size
Camellias 26 steel boned corset is made of satin and offers upto 6XL size (means to fit natural waist 45” – 47”). It is perfect for wearing under an outfit as a shapewear corset or showing it off for some cosplay fun.
Squeem is a line of waist cinchers that are a step above and beyond spanx. They’re breathable, comfortable corsets that don’t make you feel like you’re in the Victorian age. You can be able to hook my Squeem cincher around your waist with no problem and… it didn’t roll when you move around. If you feel carry most of your weight in my stomach, or sometimes feeling like your “assets” are taken over by your tummy, then I think Squeem waist cincher is for you. You can order Squeem online but if you want to try it on, they’re sold at Ashley Stewart and Fashion to Figure stores. According to the size guidelines on the Squeem waist trainer, the 5x is recommended for a natural waist size of 49-50 inches which is equivalent to a size 22-24 in women’s clothing. As you can see this trainer may only go up to a size 5x but that sizing is actually higher than the above plus size waist cincher.
Rago Women’s Waist Trainer is only made from nylon and spandex, but its biggest size is 8XL (goes up to a 46 inch waist). This is one of the few waist trainers I have seen that actually go all the way up to 8x instead of just 6x. The length of this garment doesn’t reach your breast, so it is suitable for girls only in need of cinching in the waist or slimming your stomach area when worn under clothing. The nice thing about this waist trainer is that there are all all flat sewn seams so that it’s not only more comfortable but won’t show through clothing as much either.
There are many many more corsetieres than these that offer larger-sized corsets as custom commissions, and I still recommend that if you have your heart set on a specific corset maker (even one not mentioned here), message or email them personally and see if they can meet your demand. If you cater to larger clientele and would like to share an example of your work, submit photos by email to be added to the gallery. Safe-for-work photos are preferred !
