2. WHAT DOES SEASONING MEAN?
Seasoning is the process of the corset forming to your body you follow the seasoning schedule for 21 days wearing the corset for a limited amount of hours.
Gaps at the top and bottom of the corset are normal during seasoning. The corset will start to form to your body within the seasoning period.
During the first 2 weeks of seasoning you would reduce a max of 2" inches keeping your back busk parallel.
If your natural waist where you bend is 44" inches your max reduction with the corset on should be 42"inches
Week 3 you can increase your reduction to your comfort however we do not recommend you tight lace which is 4"+ reduction.
TIGHT LACING-Over tightening your corset can cause wear and tear due to the pressure and the large gap you are given to start with to achieve your goal.
Your waist will eventually catch up to the size of the corset as you lose inches forcing the corset to close will not give you faster results consistency will.

To help flatten the "corset penis" pull down sharply at the bottom of the corset with two hands then pull your bottom 2 bunny ears towards the ceiling and pull the top 2 bunny ears down to the ground.
