Caring For Your Corset

  • Always allow your corset to air overnight after wear, away from direct sunlight.
    Over the back of a chair or towel rack is ideal.
  • Neaten lacings and tie in a bow ready for your next wear.
  • Roll loosely and store in one of our corset boxes or bags OR
  • Drape lacing section over a hanger and hang.
  • Do not leave your corset in sunlight or anywhere it can get dusty.
  • Clean any small spots or marks with a damp sponge.  Do not rub.
  • Try to wear a camisole or thin garment underneath it to prevent skin oils & perspiration as much as possible.
  • If you are a daily corset wearer, try to alternate between two corsets, allowing each one time to breathe between wears
  • Do not share your corset – over time the shape will mould to your own figure and sharing could weaken your corset.
  • Ava Corsetry recommends dry clean only by a trusted dry cleaner.
  • Do not immerse in water, sponge off any stains or sweat marks.
  • Do not wring dry.
  • Do not put in the washing machine
  • Do not tumble dry
  • If using products like Febfreeze spray, do not use on the fashion fabric of a corset.
