Second-Hand Corset Round-Up! (Episode 2)

Again, I’ve scoured the interwebs for your benefit - corsets, even of a top brand name, can be within financial reach of almost everyone, and buying second-hand is often the best way to achieve this. The list here is not exhaustive, but perhaps it would be helpful as you wonder how to get the most cinched-up joy for your money’s worth.  Please also note that I cannot speak personally for the suitability of these individual corsets.  Be certain to direct any questions toward the seller.

Calling for more posts!

Our queue is down to 8, and most of what we’ve received lately has been related to a piece of ongoing drama. Not cool.

Help me add some variation to the blog, and send in your corset confessions! As an added incentive, I’ll make the next three I get image posts! (And after that, 1 out of 5. ♥)

Please Note: All posts go to the queue so you might not see them for a couple of days. :-)

My tightlacing corset is coming in the mail tomorrow (happy dance!)

I’m trying to think of sarcastic responses I can say to people when they ask why I’m wearing a corset.

You know like when people ask why I dyed my hair purple and I’ll say “Because purple represents royalty and I’m a fucking Queen.”

I want something like that
 gimme somethin’ good

Plan for Week 2

I’m hoping that if I tell you lot my plans, I’m more likely to stick to them!

  • Film a couple of videos. I have a spring favs and a tea vlog I would like to do.
  • Finish a structured corset dress I’ve been working on
  • Get the boning channels sewn, and the busk inserted on the purple satin
  • Order and cut fashion layer for the sari corset
  • Finish seasoning the pinstripe and try to get a decent picture of it!

I think that’ll do for the moment, though I’m going to try and do more than what is on that list as well. Have a great week!!!
