Waist tape advice

Calico sags along waist
Calico sags along waist

So my corset sags when i pull it tight with the waist tape attached, and i cant remember how i made my last one if this was the same or not. I'm thinking its a little too tight compared to the corset size.  

The issue i now have is that I'm using a pattern for a corset which has worked for me before. Now this one when i try it for fit the tape "rolls" and the corset folds up/down at the top and bottom as if it were too tight *(though when i lace just the top or the bottom it sits with the standard 2in gap without feeling tight)  

The tape seems to sit across the waist line, I've no bones in it yet could it be a combined issue?
