1. Coming in from the back pull string through top holes.
2. Create a criss cross pattern until you have three Xs.
3. Once you reach the 7th hole you'll simply go down one instead of across. This is where all the slack is pulled to and your bow will be tied.
4. Repeat step 2.
5. Tie a knot.
Overbust corsets are laced the same way as underbust corsets.
If you have a long waist you may achieve more of an hour glass figure by moving your loops from step 3 down a set. Instead of using the 7th hole use the 9th hole.
The opposite is true for shorter waists. Moving the loops up a set to the 5th hole will create more of an hour glass figure.
