It’s official and beginning. My starting waist is 28.5 inches and this is a 24 inch corset. :D
~*LET THE WAIST TRAINING BEGIN *~

Good luck, my friend!
Try not to make a habit out of tying your laces around your waist, though, that can damage your corset and that would be a shame. Take care of your corset and your corset will take care of you!

OOTD + showing off my latest sewing creations. For the past couple days I’ve been working with some of the fabrics from Michael Miller’s Nevermore collection and I’ve made a halter vest, corset, and skirted vest, all reversible, with them. These are the white side-I used the black fabric and print on the other side, which can be seen in the last picture.. The corset uses a self-drafted pattern and is insanely comfortable because it can bring in my waist a full 2-4” while not putting any pressure on my ribs or hips. I’m excited to use it and the vest pattern, also self-drafted, again! These vests are perfect for wearing with corsets.

Is Mystic City Corsets ok to buy from again? No more problems like in the past?

None of the mods have ever purchased from Mystic City in the past and cannot personally vouch for quality of their older or newer corsets.

That being said, Sylwia appears to have settled into a new factory, claims to be using higher quality materials, and customers seem happy. I believe we’ve reblogged several people with recent mystic city purchases; I would recommend contacting someone who has purchased one recently to get first hand experience and a more inside look at what the quality of the newer corsets is.

Since you are the queens of corsets I was wondering if you had an tips or could direct me to good information about making custom bras? I know it's not corsetry, but you seem so knowledgable about the world of undergarments haha ;)

Foundations Revealed has a whole section on bra making

There’s a book series about undergarments called Bare Essentials, I (Annie) have the one about bras and think it is a pretty great resource! It comes with patterns and walks you through construction and altering drafts yourself.

Wondering about corsets under your clothing? Wonder no more! #cs201 #stealthy #corset #createyourownstyle #mesh

Remember everyone, even with mesh corsets, it’s always advised to wear a liner! <3

I’m so excited about this interview! A few months ago, I met Lucy of Lucy’s Corsetry for the first time at Orchard Corset. Lucy is a noted figure in the corset community, and is regarded worldwide as an expert and authority on the subject of corsets. This three part video series is all about giving you an introduction to the world of the corset. Each video covers a different part of the foundations of corsetry, and together, they all contain important info for when you’re ready to buy a corset yourself!
