Well, I was trying to get a nice picture of my mullet skirt, but all I see are ridiculous arches and long hair.

From a composition stand point though, the way your hair and skirt fall kind of echo one another are creating an interesting frame for your legs/feet.

Well I’ve never thought of it that way before! I guess it’s not bad then. ^.^

this is your periodic reminder that old-timey medicines did not fuck around

Yeah that’d probably handle a cough.

CHLOROFORM?!

That’ll do it.

Back when medicine was a party in a bottle.

This week we started the Victorian era in summer camp.  I had to explain early-modern medicine to the 7 to 11-year-olds without discussing heroin or vibrators.  The struggle was real.

I love how people reference medical documents from this era as proof that corsets cause harm to people. *facepalm*

^^^^^^^

Comparing Lingerie
Click through to high res for readability!
Mislabeling happens, which is understandable because sometimes information like this can be hard to find, manufacturers intentionally or unintentionally (through receiving misinformation themselves) mislabel, and some of it is just plain confusing!
This is by no means meant to be an absolute guide to what definitely is and is not a certain garment, it’s just some general guidelines that these garments usually follow. (Things like closures, boning type, and sizing often vary by manufacturer and style.) It also doesn’t include nearly every type of lingerie and shapewear, as there is so much out there! This is just meant to clear up a few common misconceptions. <3
If you’re a more visual person, here are picture examples of all of the garments listed!

Episode one of the Fit Gallery (I might call it something else but for now….)

So remember I posted the first image and asked you ladies and gents to guess where the fit issue was with this off the rack sample piece? There were some good guesses and now I’m going to let you know what the three issues were.

This is a guide for buying a corset that’s oremade from a standardized pattern NOT for a custom. A custom corset with a pattern drafted just for you should fit you nearly perfectly.

Note the pink line marked A. This will be fit issue number one. The line indicates the bottom of the band of my bra. This is not a longline bra. The top of the corset comes up higher than the bottom edge of my average cut bra.

Note the blue line marked B. That is the edge of my low rise underwear. The corset extends far past that.

And the green line marked C. The hip of the corset is not flush with my hip despite the corset being closed. This is due to the length of the corset being too long. The underbust circumference and hip circumference should fit me like a glove however the length does not match up with my torso causing the hip of the corset and my hip to not align properly.

Overall the corset is too long. It makes sitting tricky and crushes or pushes the breasts up uncomfortably. Extended wear would be miserable unless you were standing for the entire duration.

So while the horizontal measurements make this one of my most comfortable pieces, the vertical makes extensive wear tricky.

Know your measurements. If a corse doesn’t have it’s length and rib and hip measurements displayed ASK THE SELLER. If they can’t tell you, don’t waste your time. A beautiful corset that fits poorly is going to make you miserable!

This is what my Lace Base is for, people.

Wow, this looks even more #pink on camera. I may be reviewing this #longline #corset by Hot Corsets next week! It&#8217;s really long. The center front is 15 inches.
