I have a question though... I'm a little thicker in size, more curvaceous I guess you can say... do you still think I'll be able to make one for myself? You know to fit my body shape??

In regards to curvier girls using corsets, well, I'm a size 12 and I wear corsets ALL the time. I've just found that the boning needs to be much stronger and thicker.

The beauty of corsets is that they are pretty much one-size-fits-all if they are lace up as you can adjust it to any shape and size.

What I do is make it one size smaller than my normal size and then add grommets and lacing so that I can adjust it.

Give it a go!

Fab idea and tutorial!  I love it, especially the repurposed plastic for the boning.  Must make...

Ah, this is GREAT!  Nifty corset!

I love your entire look in the first photo, also.  I shaved my head earlier this summer.. I loved the look, and making the statement that a girl can still be very pretty without long hair.. or any hair at all!

shewantsxglamour -

here is how I learned to find true waist in costuming class: Standing, feet facing forward. While still facing forward, bend over sideways - like 45 degrees to the right or left. Use your fingers to find the spot the "vertex" of the bend, as it were. That is your true waist.

cheers!
