The back of a corset needs to be laced up. Here are three different methods you can use. There are two types of pre-made grommet tape available but they are only available in white and black. That’s fine if your corset is white or black. However, if your corset is turquoise or red…what’s a girl to do?
The answer is to set your own grommets. We sell two sizes – the most common size is #00 which is 3/16″ (4.7 mm) inside diameter and the size #2 which is 3/8″ (9 mm). The smaller size is the traditional size for traditional corsets while the larger size is used for more costume effects, such as those worn by pirates, wenches and Octoberfest maidens. Oh yes, they are popular in Steampunk circles too ( I love that look!)
