Ask me anything   About me   Corset links and info   

Clair. 28. queer black woman from the heart of Dixie. I'm into that afrofuturistic goth hippie aesthetic.

Things to do when you take off your corset:

  • Deep breathing. Inhale slowly as deeply as you can, take a few extra sips of breath to make sure you’re fully inflating your lungs, and then exhale slowly. Repeat until your lungs feel happy and your tummy feels calm.
  • Stretching. Back bends, forward bends, side-to-side spinal rotations, etc. Cracking your back and stretching your spine after a long day laced-up is the best feeling.
  • Foot care. Exfoliate, moisturize, trim & paint your toenails. Don’t neglect your tootsies just because you can’t always reach them.
  • Admire your bare tummy. Doesn’t matter if it’s firm and muscular, soft and expansive, or anything in between. It’s yours and it’s adorable.

$40 for a gently-worn authentic leather corset? Heck yeah.

Someone please do me a favor and buy this 20-inch leather Mystic City corset. Very strong leather, double-boned, gentle hourglass shape (somewhere between TImeless Trends and the CS-426), brand-new black ribbon laces. It’s 13” long at the front and back, so perfect for you long-torsoed people, but it’s cut high on the hips (9” on the sides), so comfy for average-length people, too. Shipping is free, unless you live in New Zealand or something, in which case we’ll work something out. Help me clear out my corset drawer and keep my bank account from looking so damn pitiful.

danfart asked: hi there! can you post more pictures of the leather corset you're planning on selling? also is this the same corset that you glued together?


Answer:

I sure can, during my next study break. And NOOOO, it is not the corset I glued together lol. That was my other leather corset from MCC. I wouldn’t sell that poor thing, it’s pretty much a piece of my own flesh at this point. This one has had no repairs at all. I bought it last summer, gained weight over the winter, and now there’s too much of a lacing gap for me to want to wear it anymore. I’ll take pics of the boning channels and lining and everything to show how presentable it is. Thanks. ~Clair

Anonymous asked: Which of Orchard corset's level 3's would you say is the curviest? CS426 VS CS411?


Answer:

waistedlives:

I only own the 426 so I couldn’t say. Maybe someone in the community can tell us?

OC says they’re similar, but my hips say no because I have both in a size 22 and the 411 tends to dig into my hip-flesh after a few hours while the 426 fits me just fine. The 426 is definitely curvier, at least on my long, somewhat squishy torso.

Things that I do not appreciate about warm weather:

  • feeling sweaty all over again after taking a shower and wrangling myself into my corset and clothes
  • fewer layers means fewer ways to disguise the tell-tale signs of a corseted figure
  • having to change my corset liner more than once a day

#corset problems  #it's almost 80 degrees  #wtf springtime 

I am a strange, sparkling, and self-aware part of the cosmos. I am also super-cute sometimes.

My bf is thinking about buying this little scooter thingy, but all I could think about was how bad-ass I’d look cruising around, making a ruckus on a Honda Ruckus.
