This will probably sounds like a really daft question, but since it's an overbust, did your friend keep her bra on or not?  Embarrassed
I need to make a stage costume for an art exam at school, and I'm wanting to use a corset top in it, so the simplest way possible works!

What I did was have her put on one of those tank tops you can buy at any store that have the built-in shelf-bra type thing going on. That way she was still supported,  but there wasn't any extra stuff up on top, like an udnerwire or a padded bra.

A person who is smaller on top could probably get way without a bra, just wearing a regular tank top. Just make sure the boobs are where you want them to be before you start taping away.

I've made another corset now, on myself, and it's much nicer if you were interested in the pics of my second prototype.

If not, I've got a suggestion. Do the back first. Take horizontal strips and go from one side of the ribcage to the other. That way, when you start on the front, and are smooshing the boobs up, the tape has something to grab onto. You'll only need a limited amount of tape and you won't waste time like I did, layering on the tape. You'll get a much better fit.

Heh you don't wash duct tape garments.
And wouldn't you want a corset to be stiff? (to someone who asked about it being stiff)
It looks really cute!

mmkay.. I am being difficult today, so I have several things to sAY  Roll Eyes
1) how comfortable is it to wear, is it functional for casual wear
2)next time, use a smaller shirt and you will not have so many wrinkles,
3)would a tutoriaL BEpossible? like just more specific directions?
4) I love it I love it I love it.... I'm going to make one as soon as I find a shirt small enough
5)does it hold anything in? what holds it up??? lol thanks sweetie!

OMG i saw this yesterday and forgot to post and tell you how FRIGGIN AWESOME it is!
It's Friggin Awesome!
Now, I saw this and of course, duct tape and corsets are a couple of my vary favorite things so naturally i had to borrow this. I don't have pix right now becuase my webcam is on vacation and i don't have a digital camera <until xmas? *crosses fingers*> but I basically did the same thing you did and it turned out okay. It's much less clean <ie, lots of bubbles and approximately an hour of putting it on, taking it off, putting it back on, cutting things and taping them back together> but I'm wearing it to school today because i swore to my friend lauren that any duct tape garment shan't go without her inspection so we'll se how it holds up. so... yes thanks for allowing me to steal your post and now back to your awesome corset!
