Please check the rib and hip measurements below before ordering; we have several different corset styles available which each suit a different figure. You need to choose the corset which fits your natural measurements the closest, which might not be the style that initially catches your eye.

If you are very slender or muscular you will need to deduct 3-4 inches from your waist to determine your corset size. If you are squishier it is safe to assume that you will be able to reduce more so please take off 4-5 inches. If you are an experienced corset wearer, or sizing down, please go by your own anatomy knowledge.

The measurements below are when the corset is fully closed. At the back of your corset, we recommend leaving a gap of 3 inches, working down to 2 (so your corset has room to effectively do its shaping job).

These 2-3 inches will have to be deducted from the rib and hip measurements below, depending on the size of the gap you require i.e if you have a 36" rib measurement, you will need to go for the corset style with a 33-34" rib so this 2-3 inch gap is at the back.


The rib and hip are measured approx 5" up and down from the waist.

Vamp Corset Waist Size Rib  Hip
18" 26" / 66cm 30" / 76cm
20" 28" / 71cm 32" / 81cm
22" 30" / 76cm 34 / 86.5cm
24" 32" / 81.5 36" / 91.5cm
26" 34" / 86.5cm 38" / 96.5cm
28" 36 / 91.5cm 40" / 101.5cm
30" 38" / 96.5cm 42 / 106.5cm
32" 40" / 101.5cm 44" / 112cm
34" 42"  / 106.5cm 46" / 117cm



It is important to check the length of your torso to ensure that the bottom of your corset doesn’t dig into your thighs or breasts when sitting.

Busk Length 11.25" / 28.5cm
Centre Back Length 13" / 33cm
Underbust to Hip (Princess) 11" / 27.50cm
Side Length from Waist to Top 4.5" / 11.5cm
Side Length from Waist to Bottom 5" / 12.5cm

Fitting Room: Corset Sizing

How to measure for a corset

Our Corsets are sized by 'reduced waist size'. This means the size of the corset when fully closed. For example, a size 24" corset will measure 24" when fully closed. To determine your corset size you need to measure your waist firmly and deduct a number of inches.

Please note that your jean size is not your waist measurement! You need to measure the narrowest part of your torso which is a lot higher up. The amount of inches you take off will depend on a variety of factors, including the corset style and your build, but is generally between 3 and 5 inches (precise details are included for by corset style).


Please be aware that you need to check your measurements before ordering. For our Underbust Corsets we supply both the vertical lengths and circumference . Please compare your measurements to ours to determine which corset will be right for your figure type.

Finally, be aware that the top and bottom corset measurement we provide are for the corset being entirely closed at the back. It is pretty standard to aim for a gap of 2".

Corset Measurements

You can find the measurements for each corset in the product descrption. If you would like to compare all of our corsets at once, the button below takes you to a Google Doc Spreadsheet where you can see the measurements for all our corsets side by side. This is easier than looking at each corset style separately on our site. Hover over the little triangles for extra information.

Corset Q&As

Why the Cut of your corset Matters

Your measurements are far more important than the style of corset you like on our website. In this video I wear some of our corsets to show you that not every corset suit every figure and why you need to choose the corset that comes closest to your natural measurements for the best fit.

Do I Need a Bespoke (Custom Corset?)

Your measurements are far more important than the style of corset you like on our website. In this video I wear some of our corsets to show you that not every corset suit every figure and why you need to choose the corset that comes closest to your natural measurements for the best fit.

Standard Vs Extreme Corsets

I developed the first corset line for What Katie Did in 2004, and over the years, have refined our designs into a capsule collection that is designed to suit a wide range of different figure shapes, torso lengths and sizes.

Unique to What Katie Did is our range of standard and extreme underbust corsets. You can start with the standard version of one of our corsets then move on to the extreme version if you want to take your waist training further.

Your Squishability!

Our corsets come in reduced waist sizes 18" to 34" which roughly equals UK dress sizes 8-18, US dress sizes 4 to 14.

If you are a UK dress size 8 (US 4) you will have less body fat than if you are a UK dress size 18 (US 14), so it will be harder for you to immediately get a dramatic corseted shape. We recommend you stick with the sizing recommendations for each of our corsets, which can be seen by clicking the sizing tab at the top of each product description.

If you are a UK dress size 12-14 (US 8-10) you should be able to get a great corseted shape, without too much effort and without worrying too much about flub at the top and bottom of the corset. Again, you need to go by our sizing recommendations. The only thing that might cause you difficultly is if you are very athletic and have a high muscle to fat ratio. Then, like your more slender friends, you will find it harder to waist train as muscle is far less squishy than fat.

If you are a UK dress size 16 (US 12) or above, then you're in luck as fat is squishy and you'll be able to quickly tight lace yourself to create hourglass curves. You might want to go for a size smaller than stated as it's common for curvier girls to be able to reduce their waist by 6 or even 7 inches with one of our curvier corsets! However, please check the rib and hip measurements of our corsets before doing this as if they are too small for you, they will result in what can only be called, rather unglamorously, flub.  

Comparing Waist Cinchers & Corsets

Cinchers, waspies, corsets oh my!

If you're confused about the different waist shaping garments available we've put together a video not only explaining the differences, but showing each garment on model Miss Sugar Rush so you can really see the difference.

What is a Demi Corset (& Sizing)?

Find out about our Demi Waspie Corset and how the sizing works for both our Demi Waspie and Demi Corset.

Our Demi Waspies and Corsets are half way between a powermesh waist cincher/waspie and full non stretch corset.

The button below takes you to a Google Doc Spreadsheet where you can see the measurements for our Demi Corsets both unstretched and stretched.

Extras: Modesty Panels

A modesty panel is a piece of fabric that covers the gap between the your corset lacing and your back.

All of our corsets used to include a modesty panel, but as people tend to either love them or hate them we now sell them as an optional extra with our underbust corsets. They are still included with our overbust corsets which are more likely to be on show.

If you are wearing your corset with a corset liner, then you really don't need a modesty panel. However, if you do wear your corset over clothing you might like to wear one as it can look neater.

Our modesty panels can be laced in to your corset, or simply slotted in.
