Disguise Rating Explained
The Disguise Rating is how invisible a corset is underneath clothing, relative to the other designs available in our collections.
All Corsets & foundation garments will be difficult to completely disguise underneath bodycon and very tight fitting sheer garments. Dresses with scooped backs can also be problematic when pairing with overcast designs.
Comfort Rating Explained
The Comfort Rating is how comfortable your corset will be. Some fabrics are less suited to longer periods of wear and more theatrical designs can become heavy if wearing all day.
Naturally you will find that your corset will be less comfortable the tighter you lace it, corsetry is about finding the balance between comfort & control that best suits you.

The human back is composed of a complex structure of muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and disks. The components work together to support the body and enable us to move around. Problems with any of these components can lead to back pain and require us to use a form of lumbar support.
Back pain can occur for a variety of reasons. One of the most common causes of low back pain is poor posture when sitting. Back injuries can also arise from tripping, falling a short distance, excessive twisting of the spine or when you use your back muscles in activities that you do not do very often, such as lifting a heavy object or doing physical work.
