A cool #pewter real working split #corset #busk made by #silentsongbyrd , both halves modelled on my friend. :)

This is the most perfect thing I’ve ever seen. Is there any way to get my hands on a pair?

You would have to ask Byrdi! She made these earrings as gifts for mmsnafaioopoofeeker/The Steel Boned Baker, RandomCorset, LadyTigerLily (@serpentinetigerlily here) and myself last year, and each one is slightly unique (the loops and pins only match up with our own). Do be aware that the pins may tangle in your hair though!
I suppose you could try messaging Byrdi on her Youtube channel and asking her how much one of these would cost?

Thanks for the info! <3

I was considering buying from mystic city but after your last ask I'm curious... What did the owner say? If you'd rather not say though I understand.

None of the mods here were directly involved in it, but there were some really off-color comments about eating disorders. I don’t have the link to it handy, but it was not a pretty thing.

On top of that though, I’ve heard bad things about they boning they use and their customer service, so just be veeeeeery wary if you do choose to buy from them.

Some of Mystic City's designs (particularly MCC 31, MCC 34, MCC 47, MCC 61 and MCC 67) appear to have slightly more rounded (less conical) ribs than most OTR corsets I've seen. Since I'm not sure about how reputable they are as a company, I wonder if anybody knows of similar OTR or semi custom designs? Pondering and saving for full custom (probably C&S) still.

I wouldn’t go with Mystic City, not only because of quality issues, but because I wouldn’t feel comfortable supporting the owner after some of the comments she’s made on facebook.

OTR with cupped ribcages are difficult to find, but my favorites are probably from Pop Antique because Marianne really knows how to work around a ribcage since her own is stubborn, so even her OTR patterns are really accommodating in the ribcage area.

C&S would be a fabulous choice if you’re going for full custom, but if you’re still looking around, Lucy has a gallery for that of course

I am in LOVE.

This corset is so unbelievably comfortable, and LOOK AT THAT SHAPE

I’m still SEASONING.

I loooooove the fabric!

Look what I got!!
It only took two days to get this, so now it’s time to start seasoning. My natural waist is 27”, and this corset is 20”. I ordered 20” because I have a 24” corset from another company that I can close. This will be the first waist training corset that I’ve ever owned, and the shipping was super fast, only 2 days, and that was the free shipping.
Also, sorry about the crappy lighting. The actual color of this corset is a deep royal blue, so in other words, my favorite color exactly.

Dear Mods (I hope this is a better way of addressing the group), I am the stealthing anon. To be honest, I'm new to following the blog, and I was going by the cartoon of Sara and Sophie. I had forgotten that Annie had joined the mod team. I'm sorry.

Don’t worry about it! <3 We haven’t changed the icon because Annie is pretty new and also I love that icon more than I love Annie (sorry Annie). Mods is a great way to address us, thanks for taking the time to respond. :D
