Not those glorified tube tops you can get at Hot Topic or Charlotte Russe. REAL corsets. I can’t be the only one who wears them. This is where we’ll talk about our lovely corsets!

Underbust or overbust? Busk, front lacing, or even a zipper? Where do you wear yours? How often? What do wear it with? I myself have an underbust from Fallen Angel Fashions, I got it at the Ren Faire a couple of years ago. It’s black with a pattern of ornate black crosses on the front and back. Very subtle. I want to add rhinestones or sequins to the sides, they’re a bit plain and I like my corsets sparkly. It was my first and only corset, but I can’t wait to get more :D

My friend is a costume designer and last year she made me a steel-boned corset. It’s white with a subtle monochrome paisley pattern. It almost looks like the sort of thing you’d use with a wedding dress.

I’ve mostly just worn it to Ren Faires since I’m having trouble styling it with modern clothes. I really would love to wear it more often, so if anyone has some ideas I’d love to hear them!

I have two that are both front lacing and overbust. One is black satin with pale pink tulle trimming, and the other one is crimson lace. I wear them with jeans when I go out—they bring instant drama and glamor to tired denim. :)

Pandaphilia, you can get a good corset for about $150 here- http://www.timeless-trends.com/ you should check the clearance section, they have a few for $75

MurasaNeko, what does your corset look like? Maybe we could give you a few outfit suggestions :D

TeenageLoveAffair, where’d you get your corsets? I’d love a front lacing one

I want to get a corset, I think their goreous (though I don’t want it to constrict my breathing) I have already designed my grad dress and it has an exposed white corset(overbust with back lacing) with black lace overlay and a full skirt. Where can I get corsets though?

It won’t constrict your breathing unless you lace it too tightly, but sitting will be a bit uncomfortable. Nothing to do with breathing, it’s just the top of the corset kinda digs into you.

White with black lace should be easy enough to find, you can check Etsy. Fairy Goth Mother has really nice corsets- http://www.fairygothmother.co.uk/Corsets.htm
Timeless Trends is really good too
Here’s a list of stores if they don’t have what you want.- http://www.chateaubizarre.com/categories/wardrobe/corsetry/

If you need any more help with anything feel free to message me :)
