A cool #pewter real working split #corset #busk made by #silentsongbyrd , both halves modelled on my friend. :)

This is the most perfect thing I’ve ever seen. Is there any way to get my hands on a pair?

You would have to ask Byrdi! She made these earrings as gifts for mmsnafaioopoofeeker/The Steel Boned Baker, RandomCorset, LadyTigerLily (@serpentinetigerlily here) and myself last year, and each one is slightly unique (the loops and pins only match up with our own). Do be aware that the pins may tangle in your hair though!
I suppose you could try messaging Byrdi on her Youtube channel and asking her how much one of these would cost?

I love my Byrdi earrings! I get people asking about them all the time. :D

So I’ve finally finished my first ever corset alteration!
I added hip gores (3 each side to total a 6” increase) and then changed the bones to spirals on a whim. 
I’m super happy with the result, considering my inexperience with corsetry, and the whole thing cost me a grand total of £6.00! It’s not fully closed here as I’d just thrown it on in my excitement but WOW the spirals make a world of difference…

Wow, that’s awesome! Great alteration, you should be very, very proud. :)

I made a little info card and decided I would make a physical prototype. :P #Corsets #Corset #waisttraining

Cute! I have considered many times making a similar card for FAQs about my long hair. :p

theprophetchuck asked: Question: I know what my measurements are and someone from Orchard Corset suggested a size 38 for me but I'm wondering if a 40 wouldn't be better. I'm looking at ther CS 411 underbust and I am short (5'4) but not TOO short. My torso isn't so much long as I am kind of thick. She said my squish would be good for a 38 but I'm not sure if I'll know if the corset is too small if it is when I get it. I wouldn't wanna get a 40 and be too big though. Do you have any thoughts?

Hello! There are a couple of factors to consider:

These corsets tend to have a 4-5” rib-spring, and an 8-9” hip spring - meaning the size 38” corset may have the maximum measurements 43” (ribs), 38” (waist), and 47” (high hip). The size 40” corset would have the measurments 45” - 40” - 49” (ribs - waist - hips). So get the size that more closely matches your natural ribcage and hips so you don’t get flesh spillover or pinching.

This video is in the context of sizing down once you’ve closed a previous corset, but you may find it useful in choosing whether to buy the larger or the smaller size, based on your current activity level, your intentions, your compressibility, etc. And of course, if you try one of the sizes and discover that it’s not right for you, they allow exchanges within 30 days. :)

alegriaprivada asked: I am flying to Mexico on Wednesday. I just read a post concerning packing your corsets. What can you tell me about wearing one through airport security? Can it be done without being a huge issue?

Quite honestly, I have always just removed my corset and stowed it in my carry-on. I know of people who have gone through security while wearing their corset, and the metal detector always goes off.

Depending on the person or the airport, there seems to be varying amounts of questions and wasted time, but I don’t have time for that unnecessary trouble when I can simply take off my corset for 5 minutes, breeze through security and put it back on in the restroom once I find my gate. Sure, some people might not have an issue going through security with their corset, but why risk the hassle?

Fran of Contour Corsets has always done the same thing; she writes about her experience here.

petrichoralossements asked: What kind of corset would help lordosis, if any?

I’m not sure about correcting lordosis (there are plenty of corsets out there that have very rigid bones in the back, but you may find some of these corsets too rigid and might make you feel like it’s forcing you to hunch over).

But if you’d like a corset that would accommodate your lordosis and not cause you back pain, I would recommend someone like Amber Welch (Lovely Rats Corsetry), or Alexis Black (Electra Designs Corsetry). Both of them have swayback and they know how to draft corsets specifically so that they curve over the lumbar area of the spine and don’t force you to lose your natural curve in your spine. :)
