We recommend that you order Overbust corset 2-3 inches below your natural waist measurements to allow for cinching. if you have a 29 inch waist, we would recommend that you purchase a Corset Size:26. A size 26 will have a 26 inch waist when fully laced shut. Make sure you cross check our below given Bust and Hip measurement ratio. If you don't fit into any of the size given below, plz contact our support for size recommendation.
