A question that a handful of Foxy Lingerie customers have asked us is how is a bustier that they order from us really supposed to fit? Its not an question that has obvious answer, but it is an important question to ask since many bustiers cost more money than your average piece of lingerie with prices ranging between $29.95 to $59.95 and more. So, without further ado, lets get into the nitty gritty of how bustiers are supposed to fit.
First, lets answer the question of what exactly is a bustier. Simply, its a form fitting strapless top (typically lingerie) that women wear to enhance their figure. Now, you might ask, well, what’s the difference between a bustier and a corset – doesn’t a corset do the same thing? Well yes and no. A bustier might look very similar to a corset, but a bustier lifts your chest more than a corset and a corset cinches your body in more than a bustier typically do. There are some styles that offer a combo of both effects though.
Now, how is a bustier supposed to really fit? Well, you want to make sure you find the right size so that there is enough support in the right places to offer you that lift that you’re looking for. Without the right amount of support, the lack of straps will cause the garment to sag or fall off – which is not what you’re looking for. The boning in the bustier offers some rigidity and that support you’re looking for to lift your chest for a really sexy look. The bustier should fit snuggly against your body, but not be restrictive like a corset can be. Also, you want that right amount of lift in your chest, but not so much that you feel squished or not enough so the garment is flapping off your body.
So, keep those points above when shopping for your next bustier style. And as always, ask your friendly lingerie experts at Foxy Lingerie if you have any questions regarding any type of lingerie garment when you’re making your next purchase!
