I'm writing my dissertation, for The University of Auckland, on corsets and specifically tightlacing. Most of the information I need will be coming from public sites, forums and journals but I also want to give less known members of our community a voice.

What do YOU think is the most important thing about corseting?
Why do you corset and/or why do you think other people corset?
Also what made you choose to start corseting?
If you're not tightlacing but want to why do YOU want to? If you are tightlacing what do you like most about tightlacing?

Is there anything else you think is important about corsets and tightlacing?

Thanks for any input it will help me a lot to shape my debate.


(I hope it is ok to put this here - I'll delete it if it isn't)

question about measurements
I recently won a HoW corset on Ebay and just got a friend to help me with the measurements today. I am a bit puzzled seeing them compared to the measurements of the corsets I've seen in this journal.
I mean, I'm a lot wider than a 'model size', having a natural waist of around 36", so of course those measurements are a lot bigger, but my waist-underbust is also quite a lot longer, as in 7". Also, my side hip length and desidered corset front are pretty close, but I think there would have to be a slight upwards curve between them (like an inverted u sort of thing) to avoid the corset jabbing my thigh when sitting, is this possible or should I re-evaluate those measurements? Does this mean we did the measurements wrong? We followed the instrucions very carefully.
Also, should I include a measurement of waist-start of ribcage?
And what waist reduction should I go for?
*feels clueless*

Do you hve an Ebay reseller?

Sorry if this is not the right community to post, but there is an interesting discussion going on over at corsetry concerning an Ebay seller who currently has two HOW corsets for sale and uses both your photos and descriptions. People are confused because the "All corsets are custom" hasn't been removed and because there are other parts in the description that make thw whole thing look like a reselling offer rather than a private auction.
I thought this might interest you, so here's the link to the discussion and auction links.

Pictures of my HOW corset
I still don't have shots of me wearing my HOW corsetry but when I was in California last month visiting a friend, I had her wear some of my things. We're pretty much the same measurement so everything fit like a glove. This was her first time wearing a *real* corset and she was loving it so much, but here's some shots of yuffiebunny in one of my corsets :)

Standard size corsets now available on ebay
I have seen great consistencies in customer measurements during my many years of corset making.
This has led me to wonder if some would want the option of buying a standard corset size for a lower price than custom.
For a short time I will be offering a few standard sizes on ebay to see if there is enough of a demand for standard sizing.
The patterns I have created do fit lovely and I if wasn't such a masochist with my tight-lacing I would probably wear one myself. I have tested all of the sizes below and if I get enough positive feedback, I will offer these standard sized corsets on my website along with the custom.

22" Pointed Waist Cincher
24" Pointed Waist Cincher
