Turquoise front-zip corset
Related to: 
so this corset seems amazing and very versitile. however, i read in one of the reviews for another product with plastic boning that it didn't give enough support (the boning that it). so the product bent every which way with the user. that seems to make the boning useless. i was wondering from those that have used this coset before if the plastic boning was a problem. i'd like to buy this but since i have a bit of a stomach pouch, if the boning doen't support me, than it would be a waste of money.

Plastic boning isn't meant for any sort of real body shaping - it's like a light-control brief, just to smooth out the mild bumpies for a few minutes before it's taken off. You should have seen my plastic-boned corset after a six hour dance party - it looked like a pretzel covered in lace.

Any real body shaping, especially for extended-time wear, will have to require a steel-bone corset.

Chili is right. I have some plastic boned stuff, but they aren't meant for support or shaping or waist training. They hold a little shape, but they twist and can break. It's OK if you aren't trying to take off too many inches, but if you want FULL support, go with metal.

I have some metal boned cinchers and others and they HOLD you in, but you do need a lace up back to take best advantage of metal boning. Zippers or hook and eye closures won't hold you in properly.

I had a totally different idea in my head of what this thread was going to be about.

Thanks for answering that for me.

Plastic generally doesn't give good support, and doesn't stand the test of time very well. I'd always recommend skipping out on these kind of 40 dollar cheap "corsets" and saving for a real one, but I'm a snob about that D:

In my experience the plastic boned tops can warp as well. I had a really beautiful strapless dress that supported itself on plastic boning, and after a night a dancing they practically folded out on themselves around my waist. Sigh. I think the less expensive corsets are better to use as the type of lingerie that doesn't stay on too long...
