Hey, sorry if this has been asked before, I was just wondering how you tie the laces properly without making a big lump in the back of your clothes if you're wearing the corset as underwear?
Oh… My… God…. YESYESYESYESYESYESYES *goes home*
Before and after corseting :)
Still have a long way to go until this one’s closed though!
My 22” Josephine underbust, almost closed. Worn with a Kiss Me Deadly roll on girdle.
I think I’m finally starting to encounter the limitations of the Josephine, being that it’s OTR and not custom. With an inch gap left, the underbust area is okay, but the bottom of the corset starts to dig into my hips. It’s not uncomfortable, but it does create a bump at the edge of the corset that must be smoothed out.
Client’s #corset about 50%-60% done. Now to add casings, boning and binding. #corsetmaking #underbust #cincher #wip

peach-blossom-spring: 17th century-inspired stays by Charlotte Raine Corsetry
Ahh, I love this whole outfit! Want.
all i’m seeing is lady casanova, and i am so into it
That is not an outfit, those are undergarments.
I also very much want them.
I want this, but I’d fucking love to see her try fencing in a steel boned corset laced that damn tight.
You might be surprised; I’ve found that wearing a steel boned corset improves my posture and therefore makes my fighting better.
I’ve not worn one that shape, my usual LARP underlayer corset is this one. But it’s entirely possible that having something that forces your back straighter wouldn’t make you any worse than normal. It depends entirely on what pressure it puts on your lungs.
I’ve LARPed as a Regency princess werewolf in 1820s-style long stays and have merrily thrown myself around in them. It’s a bit tricky, but perfectly possible :)
Yep! A well fitting corset or set of stays shouldn’t be putting pressure on anywhere that stops you fighting. Getting up from fallen over might be a bit tricky, but I wouldn’t let that stop me :D Of course, a lot of corsets aren’t well fitting on their wearers…
Adding a voice to the crowd: I spent the whole of last year playing a character in a Timeless Trends Corset. It was curvier than OP’s, and I was fine to run around in it. Currently, my smallest corset gives me an 18-inch waist and is fairly conical on my lower ribs. I’ve been chased around a room several times in it, and was no more out of breath afterwards than I would be normally. The only effect I find is that your mobility may be slightly decreased due to not being able to bend much at the waist. (More so in an overbust.)
Also, regency stays like those in the picture should be pretty easy to do things in, as they allow complete mobility below the waist.
Keep calm and lace.
