Resplendent Rogues brings you Corsets, Kilts, and Class. Seasoning Your Corset - It is very important to break in your corset. This allows the fabric to stretch evenly and produces a more form fitting garment. It will prevent tears in the material and increases the life expectancy of the item. It takes one to two weeks to properly season a corset. The easiest way to season a corset is to wear it for a couple of hours a day over the course of a week or two. Start with the corset snug but not tight. No more than a one to two inch reduction for the first couple of days. After day two, tighten the corset a bit more each day until you reach your desired size. The longer you take to season your corset, the better the fit and life of the corset.
