i thought you had to order it, i didnt know i could buy it in stores. i want it to go inside the corset not on top or under it. also do you guys have any idea how to make my boobs look bigger in a corset? im a 32-a *tiny* but i want the girls to look great in this costume!! and those push-up-sticky-jerks are like $60 !!
One REALLY important thing to remember if you don't want your corset to squish your boobs down is: DO NOT lay your boning over the front of your breast (over the nipple, I mean). That's the problem I have with my "corset" (I say that because it's not a real one, it just looks the part) - it makes my boobs flat, and when you're a B-cup, you don't want flat boobs. Just place the boning either side of your breast, and you shouldn't end up with too much boob-squishing. I'm going to try modifying my corset by removing the offending boning, and putting a little pleat just under the breast part (it's a tiny bit too big for me, too, so I've got room to play around a bit) just to see if that helps with the creating of a push-up effect.
*disclaimer* I'm not a professional corset maker, I'm just repeating bits of information that I've picked up around the place.
Just a quick question about the cable ties - how sturdy are they? I was playing with some in the hardware store the other day, and they're pretty bendy, so I was just wondering how much support they'd give in a corset? I came across a site somewhere that had a section about using hemp string as boning, so I was thinking that if I wrapped the ties with twine or something it might make them less flexible.
The other thing I was going to have a go at was using that plastic tubing stuff that you use for whipper-snippers. I was thinking that if you took 2-3 lengths and bound them together they'd be pretty sturdy (the tubing seems a bit less flexible than the ties, is all). I'll let you know how it goes.
One last thing...the only other thing I can think of that would be strong in a corset would be steel wire, but I'm worried that might be too sturdy - I don't want to break my ribs on it, after all, because that's the sort of stupid thing I'm really good at. Better give this one some thought, eh?
