Corset + chin-ups: It is possible.  Note that, as a generality, I don’t advocate exercising vigorously in a corset, but there are some low intensity body weight movements (i.e. like push-ups, strict pull-ups, air squats) that will not necessarily have a negative effect on you or your corset, if done in low volume as well.  And, of course, walking in a corset is a great thing!  Assuming you aren’t pushing yourself to windedness or soaking your corset with perspiration.
Keeping active is wonderful for you, as we all already know, but finding ways to fit it into a lifestyle that features regular corset wear can be a bit trickier.  My preference is to exercise at a level of high intensity for 60 minutes per day, 6 days per week, plus another 30 minutes of mobility training per day - all without a corset.  Lifting heavy weights, pushing my cardiovascular limits, and stretching my warm, tired muscles are all the sorts of activities that I feel I can do better without a steel boned garment.  So I opt to take mine off in advance and re-lace after I’ve completed my workout and freshened up.  Sore muscles sometimes put up a fight when being compressed by a corset, but I’ve never found myself prevented from pursuing my waist training goals.

grossbloom asked: Hi Lucy! Ive seen many of your youtube videos but I'm still a bit unsure about what I'm doing! I want to begin waist training but Ive never owned a corset. Are Orchard Corsets suitable and what size would I need to begin for my 31 inch waist?

Hi!

Certain corsets from OC will hold up with waist training - I give my opinions here on my website on which styles would be most suitable:
http://lucycorsetry.com/research-corset-brands/can-i-waist-train-in-that-corset/

Also, I will need more measurements from you to determine what size and style you would need. You can see my measurements instruction page here, which also has a link to a video tutorial on why those measurements are important.

Then you can compare your own measurements with various corset styles in the Lace Base.

Alternatively, Orchard Corset has staff members who can put you in a size.
