My beautiful, beautiful corset.
What happened to you?
I wore it to Disneyland, under my Cadaver Danielles outfit, for about 6 hours and it started to cave in about halfway through. I didn’t quite understand what was going on while I was wearing it, so I snapped some pictures when I got back to my hotel to try to figure out what happened (you can see my pretty petticoat!).
The back started bowing out right at my waistline, which you can kind of see in the picture. I laced it pretty loose that night, but the sides pulled it all wonky.
On the left it’s bowing out, on the right it’s doing what it’s supposed to.
And you can see it even better here. I still have my bum pad on underneath (which gives my some crazy hips!) but the sides are certainly not in the right spot!
And this is what it did to my waist. Not the most comfortable…
When I tried it on after making it, the sides were fine. And it was okay when I wore it around the house to break it in. Some of my theories:
- I tied it too loose that night.
- Too high up under my arms (it rubbed a bit), so maybe it bowed whenever I bent sideways.
- Too weakly boned. I used zip ties purposefully, to keep it light but that might not have made it supportive enough.
Any more ideas? Insight? Wisdom? I really want this corset to be wearable in the future.
