Hi all!

The two cheapie corsets I got in corset-story’s 2 for 1 sale have just arrived, and I’ve done a small very simple review of the highly curvaceous corset I got, since I’ve seen a fair bit of demand for info about them, but no actual reviews or customer pictures or anything.  Assuming I can figure out how the heck to edit videos, I’ll be posting my review soon, as well as a few comparisons with the other steel boned underbust I got!

Brazilian tightlacer and corsetiere Marcelo Lima of Ferrer Corsets. He claims to be able to achieve a 12-inch waist reduction, which is amazing for two reasons: 1) He is apparently a brawny and solidly-built guy; 2) He lives in a country that’s like 90% rain forests, but manages to waist train without succumbing to heat stroke.


Satin underbusts are on sale for $220 (retail $300)! You’ll also receive a $50 gift certificate toward your next corset. This deal was made for those who want to start waist training or are looking for a staple black underbust to wear out :)

What Katie Did, pretty much the best place to buy off the rack corsets.

(And by “best”, I mean serious quality + amazing ethical standards)
