Although there are different types of lacing methods for a corset, but in this guide, you are about to learn about the simplest way to lace a corset. Moving forward point by point, you’ll get acquainted with how to lace a corset simultaneously-

  1. Make sure that you’ve taken a dry lace on both of your hands. Stretch the lace to its fullest extent in order to remove any inertial tension. Make sure that the lace is dry. If required, pull all the water spots out of it through clenching.
  2. Place the waist cincher as like the eyelets of the corset is facing you. Make sure that the outer portion of the corset is in front of your eyes.
  3. Now get the lace through the top two eyelets from inside to outside (towards you) and leave the corset downside. Make sure that the corset is having at least doubled length of the waist cincher height on both of those two eyelet sides. Otherwise, the lace won’t cover all the eyelets and complete the lacing cycle of the corset (this is one of the best methods to determine how much length of corset you’ll require for a specific waist cincher/corset).
  4. Then just move across with the lace on both sides (just like making a cross on the upper side of the cincher). After that, just dip the lace to the second eyelets on both sides. This will take the lace to the back side of the corset.
  5. After the lace is on the back side, take the lace just one step below to the next eyelet. In this eyelet, take the lace out of this one on both sides. This will eventually seem like a butterfly knot being made.
  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 continuously to the end of the corset eyelets. However, in the last portion, you will get two different results depending upon the number of the eyelets on both sides of the corset (either even or odd). It is always better if the number of eyelets on both sides is odd particularly. You’ll be able to complete a perfect diagonal tie on 4 eyelets on two sides (means 2 eyelets on 2 sides) and the last eyelet pair will be helpful to tie the overall knots with the corset.
