Corsets are said to be very uncomfortable for the wearer who should expect reddening and itchiness when taken off. Bathing and moisturizing are the solutions offered for it.

Corset wearers are advised not to lace up on the very waistline as corsets can distort your “boning”.  There is a strict guideline in how to put it on as it can squish the lower part of your lungs. When this happens, the corset wearer experiences persistent coughing and heavy breathing due to the build up of mucus it causes.

For the use of corsets to be effective, you must also follow a “diet”. Once the corset is off, you must not eat any more food.
