    You are such an artist. I am very amazed by the corsets you creat. The term gorgeous runs short to describe all you corsets. The fabric you used for this one is very beautiful and the fit is fantastic. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! What else can I say that haven’t said before?!!

      Thanks Fashionfreek!!!!! :-D It’s really comfortable all round!!! It doesn’t dig in or restrict around the underbust/bust area, I originally made it so I could wear it without a bra, so for me it supports my bust, but I will be experimening with it and refining it more :-) I am wearing a padded, overwire bra in the photo’s so it might look like it may be uncomfortable, but it’s the entire opposite :-D
