Just ordered the Josephine in Burgundy! so much for self control haha but I’m so excited for it to arrive now :D


Gosh its so tempting to get another Josephine corset… My first one has been the comfiest corset I’ve ever had but now its too big :( The burgundy one looks so pretty.. 


check it out, I found some old comparison photos I took between my now retired mystic city corset (21 inches, black) and Josephine corset by Isabella corsetry (24 inches, green). I’ve always been a bit embarrassed of that slant the busk has - I must have messed up the seasoning somehow but its still ridiculously comfortable on :) 


Q
Heyo! I'm looking to buy a daily wear corset, and I'm trying to find a good starter one. I've worn corsets before, for costumes, but I want to start wearing one daily because of back issues. Do you have any suggestions for trustworthy brands?

hey :) it really depends on your budget, body type and what kind of shape you’re looking to achieve as to what corset would be right for you. The brands I have personal experience with are Isabella Corsetry, What Katie Did and Mystic City Corsets. Out of those the most comfortable was probably Isabella Corsetry but that might be different for you. My biggest recommendation would be to watch all the videos on Lucys Corsetry (if you havent already) thats where I started out, and they are honestly the most informative place for corset information online. She has reviews up of lots of different brands as well as heaps of extra information :D 

Since you are looking for back support though, it might be worth investing in a custom made corset so that you’re specific needs can be more easily met, up to you though! I believe Lucy has a section on her website called Custom Fit Corsets for Under $200 or something like that which might help.

Good Luck! :) 


I thought going back to my older larger corset while I wait for my new one to be made would be a bit depressing, but really the Josephine is so comfy, I had almost forgotten :) If money was less of an issue at the moment I would definitely get another of these but custom sized.

I’ve been in denial for a while, but it might be time to retire my main training corset. Today is a sad day. 


Some more good stealthing dresses I found in second hand shops. Belts are the best for showing off corseted waists but I had to punch extra holes in this one. 

I just ordered a new corset, its so exciting :D I really wish I had the time to sew another myself though :/ 


Still waiting for someone to invite me somewhere fancy so I can wear this.. Stealthing my corset as always :)

I was feeling a bit down the last few weeks so today I decided to try on all my favorite clothes I haven’t worn in a while. This is one of my favorite op shop dresses, I just love this colour. Sadly my old corset is on its last legs, and none of my others have the same amount of reduction. Time to commission a new one I suppose :) 


Q
Hi what Mystic city corset is the one in your picture that your wearing a black sweater and a flower skirt?

Hi, That’s a custom sized corset but I believe she based it  off her MCC17 design. I hope that helps :)
