Corsets & Stories

A friend of mine and I were talking a bit about a possible clothing swap between like-minded ladies when the topic of corsets came up.  I have a variety of sizes currently, some too large, and some frustratingly too small, all of which high quality, steel boned waist shapers.  I had lost my local connection when the place I would go for them closed in the last year or so.  This is when she, the blasphemous vixen, told me about Corset Story.  It would seem that their regular retail prices are what you’d expect for their quality of work.  But, if you sign up for their mailing list, the velvet ropes drop, and you get invited to their super secret sales where you can get steel boned goodies for as little as $34.  

Short version of a long story, I now own this:

I tried it on as soon as I got home.  To my delight, I was right in second guessing the size I would need.  I ordered a step down from what I had originally suspected, and it’s perfect.  Wiggling around in front of my mirror, my favorite anecdote about corsetry in public came to mind, and I wanted to share.
