Anonymous asked: Would you risk commissioning from a new corset maker or go for someone with more experience?

I debate this with myself a lot, actually. There have been situations where I got a corset from a relatively new maker and their corsets have been pleasant but meh, and then just a year later their skillset has exploded and they’re the bees knees.

Other times I have waited and watched new makers to see their skills become more finely-tuned and see their artistry really develop, and then found I’ve waited too long and that corsetiere has raised their prices and only cater to a very specific demographic. So it can go both ways, and no two corset makers are the same! You really have to weigh the pros and cons.

somethingdullanduncreative asked: hey lucy! i love your videos!! i direct people to your page and beginners playlist all the time! i was wondering if you had your eyes on any of the mystic city corsets for review? they are almost as cheap as OC and ive waited a dogs age to get your opinion on them! i love and appreciate how much you put into your online presence, thank you soo much!! <3

Hi! I have been waiting to get a couple of corsets from her new factory, actually! Sylwia had contacted me about one of the corsets I was interested in being available, but there was a 2nd one on the way and it made more sense to me that I save on shipping and have both sent together - so I’m just waiting at the moment. Once I get them, I’ll certainly do a review, don’t worry! :)

ravenrosebud asked: Not an ask, but a thanks - I've been singing in a festival and subject to the usual questions about corset pain, damage etc. Normally I get tonguetied but I feel more prepared with answers these days after going through your vids. So yeah, thanks. :)

Aw, I’m glad that my videos could help! Don’t worry, even these days if a stranger confronts me, I can get a little tongue-tied myself (and I’m usually pretty solid on my information). It takes practice and study to be able to rattle off facts at a moment’s notice, whilst under pressure. ;)

I know this isn't a question, but I'm too shy to say anything off anonymous. Thank you so much for everything you do. Love you, Lucy <3!

Aw, thank you sweet anon! It means a lot to me. :3

A better update, for comparison!
From left to right: no corset, day 2 of seasoning, and today (after seasoning and a couple weeks of 8-hour/day tightlacing)
My natural waist is 38”.  This is a 28” 411 from Orchard Corset.  It has about 1” gap left in the underbust and about 3” in the hips.  I could probably close it in a week or so if it weren’t for the hips. :(  So my next investment will be a petite Josephine from Isabella Corsetry!  Experts, do you think I should go for another 28”, or size up to a 30”?
I do love the shape this one gives me.  My hips just aren’t going to get any smaller, lol!

I&#8217;ve seen this photoset stolen and reused in several places, so I&#8217;m just reblogging this for future reference now that I know the original source.

lucy-corsetry any suggestions for an affordable (preferably $100 or under) overbust corset? really simple, but I need one and there is only two choices on orchard corsets (which Ive seen you recommend) and was curious if there was other options? thank you!

I’ve also tried Corsets Boulevard Global (they have a surprisingly well-fitting curvy overbust for large-busted people!) and also True Corset (better for smaller-busted wearers). (Links lead to my reviews of each.) You can also see my playlist of OTR overbust reviews HERE.
