Each one of our strapless garments has a foundation which is an inner corselette. Unlike otherwise stated on the garment’s listing, this corselette goes from top to waist, but in some cases we recommend that it extends a bit further below the waist in order to provide full support and greater comfort.
A longer corselette is recommended:
- if you have an E cup size or larger
- or if you have a waist measurement of 33″/84cm or larger
In these cases, the foundation will:
- extend about 4″/10cm below the waist
- more strips of boning will also be added to it, their amount will vary depending on each case
Both these extra features will not only offer adequate support, but they will distribute pressure more evenly, which is key to having a form-fitting garment that is comfortable to wear.
If this is your case, please add this listing to your cart. If you are unsure, please ask for advice here, we’ll be happy to assist you.
*You will not need to wear a bra with any of our corselette structures as they already act like a built-in bra. If you’d like to have a bit of extra volume though, you can either wear a padded bra underneath, or you can have push-up pads added to your corselette, like shown on the picture. If the former, we recommend using an unwired bra so the bra wires and the corselette boning don’t get in each other’s way. If the latter, please add the push-up pads listing to your cart.
