Azdaja Corsets are made with lots of care and they are 100% hand made. Every one of our corsets have at least two layers of fabric from which one is always strong cotton coutil. You can choose if you want plastic or metal boning in your corsets. Our metal boning is high grade steel that will not break or rust. Our sizes have 5 cms difference so you can find the perfect fit.
Corsets are not meant to launder very often, but when there is a need for washing then do it by hand in a lukewarm water with mild detergent or shampoo. Do not use brushes of any kind on outer fabric, you will damage the fabric. If there is stain, let it soak for a while and then rub it off gently with your fingers or soft cloth. Do not twist or wring the corset to get the water out, roll it up in a towel gently squeezing it. Dry away from sunlight on a flat surface. PVC or Pleather corsets maintain with damp soft cloth and every now and then put some silicone oil (or any other pvc conditioning fluid) to prevent breaking of the plastic coating.
The best way to store a corset is by rolling it up. Pull all the laces together as you do when tightening the corset and do a neat bow. That way you'll prevent any knotting that are not fun to undo. Roll it up neatly from the front closure to the laces and store it somewhere where you will nor put other clothes on it.
It is very important to know how to act in a corset. it is very disciplinary garment that requires erect posture and graceful movements. If the bones bend from inadequate storage, washing or simply bending over wrongly, you can iron them straight. Heat up the iron on second degree (wool) and gently iron along the bone to warm it up. If there is some severe bending then warm up the bone and straighten it by hand.
