Gonna dress you up

Been browsing for corsets (I blame mortice) and found this dress which ciphergoth really, really needs... Cyber Geisha Corset Kimono - yum.

Now, what I was really looking for is a corset that can cope with my hips being much bigger than my waist - anyone got any ideas?

Yosa's stuff is beautiful.

Fross's girlfriend Kas also makes corsets. I can't remember the URL of her site atm, will check it for you.

Get one made?
I don't know if that's the way your figure is naturally or whether you've waist-trained to that stage - I'll presume the former (lucky you!) as I'm guessing you'd already be well into tailor-made territory if you were waist-training...

Anyway, I've heard this lady recommended repeatedly from several different sources - I suspect the praise is genuine, although I haven't seen any of her work myself.


She's generally recommended for reasons of both quality and pricing incidentally, which is nice...

Those kimono's are not only stunning, but reasonably priced for what they are...

They are gorgeous. I wish I had the right kind of waist for them.

I have to admit I'm picturing zeke_hubris wearing one...

I'm very tempted to get one myself. And Zeke won't get to wear it ;-)

My favourite place is http://www.misfitz.org. Not least because their only retail outlet is in the town where I live, but also because their clothes are really nice. They do some fab corsets, off the rack *or* made to measure, & they are excellent quality too. Their email isn't working at the moment, but I believe their phone no is on the website, if you want a mail order catalogue.

Another place I *haven't* tried, but have heard is very good, is http://www.candscorsets.com

I looked at C&S Corsetry, and their site crashed my browser. And there was no pricing information, so if I wanted to know how much something would cost, I'd have to shell out £6.00 for their 'information pack'. Does anyone else think this may not be good business practice? Beautiful though their stuff looks, I'm not going to spend money just to find out I can't afford it.

Hello :)

I have similar waist/hip ratio issues, and my favourite corset is this one - I found overbust corsets couldn't deal with the extent of the in-outness. Plus for an 'off the rack', it's really really good, and makes a feature of the difference between hip and waist, which I like. In any case, it's a style I recommend.

I took off the frilly bits though.

P.S. Kas' site is www.corsetry.net.

I could always make one... might take a few weeks tho'. Let me know if you're interested.
