You're so silly. You'll likely be dead like Christine Wickham in a few years if you don't knock this off.

I’m posting this publicly so everyone can see what a shameless ignorant asshole and vile hateful human being this person is.
Let me be the first to make it clear that Christine’s passing had zero to do with corsetry. It was actually due to complications from a yoga injury, and none of us are decrying yoga as deadly. Putting aside this person’s blatant ignorance of how ones health can or cannot be affected by corseting (something which, being a medical student Christine was exceptionally well informed of) or even that I need corsets for daily pain relief and do not consider myself a tightlacer or waist trainer at all. I was very close to her and this is a heartless insult to her grieving family and community, who have all been profoundly affected by her loss. I am still grieving every day, and working as hard as I do to perfect my craft (of which this person probably has no comprehension of the skill and time it takes to master) as a way to honor her and remain close to her. To dishonor the dead and the mourning in such a hateful threatening way is the cowardly act of a bored and idiotic person who has nothing in their heart but hatred, selfishness, and spite.

This is odd? Like clearly they know Christine was a prominent part of the corset community here on tumblr and of her passing, and maybe even of your closeness with her, usually ignorant twats are entirely ignorant of that sort of thing as well? Like usually its just generic “corsets are dangerous bs” but this is more personal than that.
Like did they really take the effort to look through your blog history or something? Or is it someone who knows you or is at least a lurker in the corset community? I don’t know, this just weirds me out.

Regardless I am really sorry you had to deal with such cruelty.

It sounds like it could even be that person who had the nasty ‘corset hate’ blog for a while. They were in the community and would be aware if that kinda stuff.

I don’t know.

The piece of shit that sent this could’ve learned a thing or two from Christine. She was such a gem of a human, inspiring admiration with her grace, compassion, and of course her intelligence and humour. In contrast, someone who does things like exploit the grief of others for their own perverse amusement inspires nothing but anger and disgust. I bet that person lives a pointless and empty life compared to Christine’s short but full time on Earth; In ten years we’ll probably have forgotten this troll, but we’ll never forget Christine.

Obviously this one isn’t finished just yet, but I think it’s a good display of what a difference a bit of decorative flossing can make!
The coutil is also a custom dye, and the laces have been dyed the same beautifully soft sand colour.

The short answer to “what does your uncorsetted waist look like now?” is this.  Remember, I’m currently training for a pretty demanding race, so I’m not just in a sports bra for the sake of vanity.  Tonight I spent a few hours simulating one half of the event, and I was soaked!  Therefore, pardon my unflattering sweat spots…

I am currently pulling together some comparison photos of my waist from earlier in my corset training journey as well as now.  Keep in mind that I’ve actually gained weight (while dropping body fat and losing inches) over the past couple years.  Not all results are due to lacing up, but that sure didn’t hurt!  Most notable is the change in my rib shape - they are much more tapered now.

Keep an eye out for those comparison photos this week.  They aren’t profound, but the difference is visible.

let us all just take a moment and appreciate the beauty of this garment.  here is my very first bespoke corset made by corsetry & romance, located in poland.  this morning, i received this photograph of the finished garment and feeling completely excited and taken aback (in a very good way).  now for hoping the corset travels across land and sea safely.

Where to buy Corset Dresses:

Corset dresses are highly specialized garments, which can be used for foundation under other dresses for weddings, or for clubbing / other fun events. They can act like combination shapewear, supporting the bustline and allowing the use of strapless dresses overtop (rather than using a strapless bra), cinching in the waist (instead of using a cincher), and smoothing over the hips (in lieu of a girdle). Click here to see the whole gallery of corset dresses.
