Couture Outfit “The Crown Princess”


"The Crown Princess" is a richly embroidered couture outfit, consisting of an underbust corset panty, a matching neck corset and strapless bra.

The corset pieces are made from sheer strong mesh and are elaborately decorated with synthetic leather cutwork, silver beads and Swarovski crystals.

The epaulettes and hip pieces are made from sturdy thermoplast and are also decorated with beads and Swarovski crystals, as well as silver metal spikes.

How to Lace Up Your Corset - A Helpful Infographic by Strait-Laced Dame

Perfect as an 8.5” x 11” print out, this diagram is intended for the corset lover looking to learn how to lace themselves up independently.  Practice makes perfect, and a visual aid makes practice much easier.

Please don’t hesitate to share this with anyone you think might be interested, but don’t forget to keep the credit intact!

These screencaps of my upcoming Contour Corset review apparently ruffled some feathers on Facebook. Before any turd comes by and spews ignorance, let me clarify:

  • Most corseters do their research before training and understand the risks and benefits.
  • Rome wasn’t built in a day. My waist doesn’t cinch down 7 inches in one go, either.
  • You’re entitled to your aesthetic preferences, just as I am to mine. Neither is “wrong”.
  • I’ve shown my corsets to multiple doctors whose reactions ranged from, “Wow” to “You can market those” to “Oooh pretty.” Also, they say I’m healthy.
  • I don’t do this for anyone but myself.

This has been driving me crazy forever, I hate how now when you go under #waist training (specially on Instagram) and all you really find are pictures of these rubbery-gym-like-FAJAS and of course are also under #corsets those rubber things that make you sweaty are NOT corsets and they will not ever get you anywhere close to where a corset can. A genuine corset should have quality steel, boning, lacing, get you down inches and not bra like clips on the front. I’m just trying to make sure girls stop getting ripped off and just trying to show the huge difference.

The lighting does no justice to the gorgeous print on this Azalea underbust by Retrofolie, but you can see just how marvelous the shape is.

It swoops over the hips and cups the ribs just right for my personal preference.  Comfortable and beautiful!  Can you believe this is a standard-sized corset?
