Hi, congratulations! I just bought a cheapie corset off eBay, I don't think it will hold up in the long run, but I want to wear it to a special event as outerwear. I need to figure out what kind of skirt and blouse to put with it. Any ideas?

The only thing is that even though I ordered according to their measurement chart, it's about 3 or 4 inches too small. I will have to stick to my diet and exercise routine to slim down enough to look good in it. Here's to vanity for motivation!

Okay, well, after 8 weeks I've whittled my waist down 2" and I've just purchased corsets 2 & 3! I REALLY like wearing them. I think I've only missed one day of wearing in 8 weeks. The one I have is almost completely useless now, as it closes all of the way - I can't tighten it any further - it's been like that for a few weeks already. I'm still getting off-the-rack corsets for the time being. (I'd hate to have a custom one not fit a few weeks later.)

My weight has not changed drastically, although I'm VERY attuned to satiety signals. I make sure to exercise; the corset's not going to do anything about my hips!

In the grand tradition of "$#!+ or get off the pot," I finally broke down and bought an off-the-rack corset. I still plan to get a custom one , but I figured I'd cut my teeth on one in the meantime, just to see if I absolutely hate it or whatever. It just arrived today so I have nothing to say about it except: it's here! I can't decide if I want to try it on when I get home or wait until tomorrow morning.
