Transgender Corsetry - the Corset Story guide for Transgender Women, Crossdressers, Non-Binary and anyone who identifies as woman

Hello Everyone and Welcome to Corset Story!

We are proud allies of the LGBTQ+ community and over the years we have helped and supported members with their Corsetry needs. Offering a safe, friendly and loving space to ensure that shopping for such an intimate garment is an enjoyable experience. If you are looking for inspiration on Transgender Corsetry - the Corset Story guide for Transgender Women, Crossdressers, Non-Binary and anyone who identifies as woman will surely help.

We work with lots of customers who are looking for a more feminine waist and hip shape/silhouette. Corsets can be used for everyday wear, special occasions and even show stopping outfits! 


We understand that shopping online can feel a little daunting, especially with such an intimate garment and we work closely with Transgender Women, Crossdressers, Non-Binary and anyone who identifies as woman to ensure the perfect fit!

The first place to start is measuring your Natural Waist.


The majority of the tension in a Corset will be running through the waist, this makes the waist the most important measurement when sizing a Corset. Traditional Corsets are fully adjustable across the bust, waist & hips. Once you have the correct size Corset for your waist it is easy to tighten or loosen the bust & hip regions for a stunning silhouette.


In order to determine the best size, you will need to measure your natural waist.

Finding Your Natural Waist

You can find your waistline by tipping your torso to one side. Where you find the natural bend of your torso, this is the area of your Natural Waist - this is usually just above the belly button.
Simply measure the circumference of this area and this size will give us a great starting point to find the perfect fit.

There are several other measurements that you might need to keep in mind like bust and hips and one that you might not have thought of and that is your height! 


Many of our customers that are Transgender Women, Crossdressers and Non-Binary are 5ft 7” or taller. This means a standard length Corset would sit too high on the torso. You will be pleased to know we have an amazing range of Corsets designed for a longer torso. These designs are classified with the name Longline and are perfectly tailored to create the classic hourglass figure.

Underbust Corsets and Waspies

If you’re not familiar with them already, Underbusts and Waspies vary from an Overbust Corset as they sit just under the bust and are usually paired over tops or dresses, or as a waist-cinching addition to any lingerie look.
