Girdles, Merry Widows, and Corsalettes
What's the difference?

A Corselette covers the entire torso serving as a bra and usually has garters that are attached. I wear mine with a wiggle dress that has a completely sheer top and no one's the wiser, plus it's a lot less clothing to have to deal with. I realize some people would only wear them in the bedroom... but wears the fun in that?(pun intended) It may or may not have eye hooks or a zipper. Here is me wearing one by Victoria's Secret in a photo shoot.

Lacing them is another huge point of contention, mind you there IS a correct way to do it. I'm putting Orchard Corset's video regarding lacing yourself into a corset at the end of this post. Also, remember that (especially if you are performing or wearing a corset long-term) only YOU or a PROFESSIONAL should be tight-lacing you - if you are tight-lacing, other people should not be lacing you into a corset as they may lace you too tightly and tie off the ribbon where you can't untie it. However, anyone you wish may unlace you...
