Well I really want to make myself a corset to wear, but I have lots of problems making clothing that look good on me. Now is there a certain type of corset that will work/look better for larger women?
Any advice is extremely appreciated.

I've got a larger figure, too, and personally I prefer Victorian-style corsets-- they give more waist reduction and the classic "hourglass" shape and some lift to the bust (as opposed to elizabethan-era corsets, for example, which are meant to flatten the bust, and don't provide much waist reduction).  If you're just starting out with making your own corset, I'd recommend starting with a waist cincher-- it's a good way to practice using boning and grommets without having to deal with as much fitting.
