Corset on a curvey women....

Corset on a curvey women....

Lady Hazel Lady Hazel
I always wanna try a corset. I dont wanna go try lingerie on at a store though.. I was wondering about the more curvier women on Eden..

DO you like the way a corset fits you?? i am 5'5 and 145 lbs. I have four children so I have some love handles... I am worried that it will roll up on the "muffin top" or that it will sag in weird ways.

Maybe alittle confidence or a suggestion on some that you have purchased and fell in love with would be great!!!

Thanks

Well, if you get a crappy, plastic boned "corset" (as in, the kind sold as lingerie), it will "roll up" and it will deform. If you get a real corset, with spiral steel boning, it will not deform, but you have to be sure to get the right size, shape and length for your body. Longer corsets are better for overall shaping, I find, but they can be sort of odd to learn to wear.

I stopped buying the type sold on this site years ago. I only buy handmade, steel boned corsets. They can be found from about $99 (USD) and up, depending on who makes it, in what quantity, and what materials are used.

There are a few of us who do plus sized reviews, I'm one of them and I try to include pictures. I'm 5'11 and I weigh about 260... and I love the corsets sold here, but I have to agree with Elnoa... the plastic boning will only support so much flab and love handles. However, if you are within the size chart, they might be a good place to start.

Well if we're looking for the absolute cheapest possible spiral-steel corseting corset story link is a good place to start. There's a section for "waist-training&q uot; corsets, go there - this is the only place on the site where properly boned corsets are sold (flat steel bones hurt!). These things will only alter your shape permanently if you wear them to that purpose; properly fitted, with a waist measurement 3-4 inches less than your natural waist they work just like a regular corset should, sucking in some an keeping it there, but not messing with anything once you take it off.

I have two corsets from that site, and as a reasonably curvy girl (28 inch waist, 40 inch hips, can't tell you anything about boobage though since I'm flat) I can say with some authority I think you'll love the way a proper corset will make you look ^_^. That being said, also from the standpoint of someone who's curves are of the pelvis-y persuasion I feel I should warn you that you'll want to break in the corset carefully if you have anything like hips, otherwise the fight between the boning and your hip-bones can result in really uncomfy rubs and bruises. Wear it only for 1-2 hours at a time at first, laced tightly but comfortably, as straight up and down as you can make it. Over time the canvas over your bony areas (hips and rib-cage) will stretch to accomadate your shape and the waist can be cinched down a little more, affording you greater comfort in the garment and a prettier over-all shape.

If all that sounds tedious, and you're willing to spend a bit of extra cash (and wait for shipping from GB), Axfords has absolutely delicious corsets, all with spiral steel boning, that are made with varying sizes in the bust, waist, and hips, so they come already fitting like a glove, not to mention some of the absolute best customer service I've ever run across in a lingerie store. I can't recommend them enough (link) but they may be a bit steep for someone that is not sure she will like this type of garment yet.

These two links, and a couple other corseting sites are all listed under my public profile's favorite websites, if they do not work here for whatever reason.

I hope that helped, and please excuse the wall-o-text, corsets are kind of a passion for me ^_^;

I will message both of you privately, as I'm not sure we're supposed to post that kind of stuff.

You and I have the same basic measurements. The big question is where you carry your "extra baggage" I have a "buddah belly" but some of the lightly boned corsets on EF work ok for me. That being said I do have a natural (slightly altered) hour glass where my waist is a good bit smaller than my hips.

My suggestion is look for slightly longer ones, especially if you are going to wear them out. Make sure they fall to your waistband. Other thing is don't go too tight. I notice people make that mistake all the time, corsets should fit snugly not like a sausage casing!

My only complaint with lingerie type corsets is that I am a D34 and they give very little support up top

Elnoa speaks truth. It's worth it to invest in a good one. If you're lucky you have a local corset maker and try before buying but there are also great places you can order from online (Galleria Serpentine, Dark Garden, etc.)
