Brocade – It is elaborately woven which doesn’t need extra embellishments.
PVC – You can’t wear it while out in the public.
Lace – Most common embellishment for corsets.
Types of Closures
Zipper – If you’re waist training, this is not suitable
Steel Busk – It encompasses 5 to 6 big clips and the fastest way to secure the garment
Hook and Closure – It will take you forever to fasten your waist trainer with this.
Lace – It might be beautiful to look at after but it might be difficult to hide if you plan to wear the waist trainer as an undergarment.
