Waist training has been an interesting experience for me. I’ve found it tremendously fun and it’s encouraged me to be more patient and gentle on my body. Having reached my 24′ closed corset goal with my 3 Months of Tightlacing, I feel it best to start on a new challenge – that of closing my 22″ corsets. Here are my thoughts on the process…
Now, most of my corsets are 22″, with a few being 24″. Unlike my 3 Months of Tightlacing there will be no time limit – rather I shall have the goal in mind and see how long it takes me to get to close my 22″ corsets.
I imagine that it will take most of the rest of this year to reach this goal due to the heat of summer, the implementation of increased whole food eating and exercise, and allowance for normal life and those few days not wearing my corset at all. It may well even take into mid next year. That timeline is also taking into account the fact that I’m going to allow it to happen as naturally as possible – by which I mean gentle daily wear without daily measurement tracking, and few other changes other than healthier diet (probably with increased food intake of whole foods replacing processed foods) and more exercise.
Also, if I feel at any point that my body does not want to lace any lower, I’m okay with that. It’s just an exploration that I’m curious about, but I will make sure it’s a relaxed process.
As soon as my 22″ corsets show signs of lacing close to closing I shall be sure to post about my results. Stay updated on my weekly progress and other adventures on my instagram; #theraventao
I have a few new corsets to post about – one gorgeous 24″ Edwardian overbust from Isabella Corsetry, a 23″ geisha floral cincher from PriorAttire and a breathtaking photoshoot geisha overbust also from PriorAttire.
