    Posted: 18 February 2008 at 11:45pm
Hi, I'm new to corsets, but am wanting to purchase one to wear under clothes. I'm hoping for one with a low back and without any excess bulk that could be worn underneath a thinish camisole top and still be discrete. I'm concerned about the laces showing through. I'm very petite already - only 5'1'' with a 22" natural waist, and I'm hoping for something that will give me a more defined waist but nothing too severe. I also don't want anything too long in the torso because I'm short. Any recommendations on brands that make a smoother type of corset? I'd greatly appreciate any advice as my knowledge is so limited!

Tricky, The nature of a good corset is support up on the back hence lace showing problems.  I would go for a basque in your situation as they can come in a low style at the back. Maybe a laced waspie corset may solve the problem and give good waist reduction
Unless you have tried it you will never know!

Would a corset work laced with the knot at the bottom rather than at the waist, so the laces could be hidden under a skirt?

You can not really get a good reduction with the laces tied at the bottom.

Something over the corset would be a better option.  Take a look at this site for different alternative.

I wear skirts and dresses and I do not really find this to be a real big problem a belt for example worned over the clothes at the waist over the knot do hide the knot well. Most clothes are not so tightfitting so the knot and laces really show is my experience.
 
Any plain corset works under clothes the best choise is an underbust 4 inches smaller then your natural waist. Do be aware many off the rack will be too high for a person who is petite (I am petite myself so I know) so I think the best option is to order a custom made corset.

That one is very good for short people, notice how stupid it looks on a tall model.

My first corset was a vollers but not this one I think but it was my most uncomfortable corset I have ever had and this I have over and over heard from others during all the years I have been active in corset groups and other places. Both Axford and Snobz corsets has been ranked higher then vollers.

I've never had a comfort problem with Vollers, it depends on the person.
