Do you have a long or a short torso? How do you know which waist trainer to get for your torso?
The London Corset Company, provide waist trainers and cinchers in two lengths: short (aka -regular) and long, these work for all torso lengths.

Discover your torso length using our quick Torso Measurement Guide below. This way you will know which waist trainer to get for optimum comfort and effectiveness. Getting the correct waist trainer length is very important. If the waist trainer corset is too long, it will dig into your thighs and chest. Too short and it will not cover your torso, lower tummy and feel uncomfortable.
