    Steel bones give waist reduction

    Plastic bones are just for looks

    The shape and size you wife is will make a difference as to the best type and how to size properly

    They sell nice ones on here or you could try corset boulevard, corsets uk, corset headquarters. Or if you can afford to splash the cash get a made to measure one :)

    Hey crazy4u,

    If you're looking for waist reduction, I recommend the Classic Satin Over Bust Steel Boned Corset

    If you want something that's going to give the look of a corset, the Sweet Streak Parisian Ruffles Lace-Up Basque might be more suitable.

    Unfortunately you won't get the same kind of shape with a bustier/basque as you would with a corset, so if you're looking for shaping then it's definitely worth spending extra for the real deal.

    We have some great Lingerie and Clothing Guides too, which could be of use to you. :-)

    I hope this helps!

    while the sweet streak corsets are lovely, the model always puts me off! I can reccomend looking at the photos that customers have sent in to get a good idea of how they look.

    I can recommend Lovehoneys steel boned corset range- very well priced and work amazingly!

    Funnily, when we re-shot the products with a different model the sales went down. Just goes to show, eh?
