Care: Your new corset should be professional dry
cleaned or if it is leather, professional leather cleaned only. Never
wash your new corset as this may cause the steel boning to rust. Proper
care can keep your corset looking new and lasting longer. After wearing
your new corset for an extended period of time, simply hang it over the
back of a chair to air dry before storing. Talline Corsets do not come
with garters. The bottom of your corset is where the knot is.
Leather Care: Please Professional Leather Clean only.
Storing Leather: Remember that leather is a
natural material and should never be stored in plastic because it
encourages the growth of mildew and bacteria and will ruin the leather.
Always store leather in a cool, dry place away from heat. Store in a

Putting the corset on
1. Loosen the lacing then put the corset around you and fasten the
front busk or zipper. For a busk, do the top clasp first and the rest
should follow. For a separating zipper, please make sure it clicks into
place all the way down or it will separate and you could damage it.
2. Pull the loops gently then tighten the lacing progressively towards
the middle from both top and bottom until you are happy with the fit.
There should be a pleasant 'hugging' sensation, but you should still be
comfortable. To finish, tie the ends in a bow at the back.
3. DO NOT over-tighten or you will damage your corset; corsets mould to
the body after a short period and the material takes the strain evenly,
then you can go a little tighter. Corsets with a front zipper are not
made for tight lacing.
Taking off your corset: Always loosen the laces in back before removing
and start at the top of the busk and go down.

try to remove the corset without loosening the back laces as this can
damage the corset.

steel reinforced back provides strength and longevity.
