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.
Shadows are fun!
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.
Because I like this photo.
Of course, the best pictures are the ones in which I was distracted by the blackbirds and starlings.
Corset is custom by Waisted Creations
By Gabriel Moginot/Maison Moginot.
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.
A one woman company from Germany who makes absolutely killer corsets, master tailor Doris Müller has amassed a huge collection of photos that you should maybe check out. Her corsets are expensive woah are they beautiful.
And she’s be at the 6th annual corset event in Thüringen Germany in may. If anyone goes be sure to say Guten Tag for us!
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).

I happily introduce the Corset Dimensions Calculator on my website - just enter the size and style of the corset you’re interested in buying, and you can see their bust, underbust and hip circumference in plain numbers.
If you still like the tables so you can see ALL the measurements at a glance, don’t worry - they are still there. :) But they may be moved to a different location.
Right now the most popular (most frequently asked) corsets are in the calculator, but more will be added shortly! (I’m just so proud that I actually figured this out that I couldn’t wait to share!)
