If you really want a mesh corset and your budget is >$100, it’s a fine enough corset. If you have more to spend, I would say get a more expensive corset. It’s fine for the price that it is, but there are definitely better corsets out there.
Will do! If they had it in black I would have bought that instead.
Day 2 of seasoning. After one wear, it lays a lot less flat than it did straight out of the packaging. I apparently have crooked hips or a crooked spine or something because I can’t manage to take a straight-on picture to save my life >.> and the corset keeps trying to twist on me.
I cant remember if Ive said this before, but Im gonna say it anyway. I dont give a crap.I appreciate a hunky Guy as much as the next Hetero Female. Sometimes I even go in for some racy type stuff ( keeping the comments PG for my Men’s sake) but dammit, dammit, dammit I am so sick and tired of the whole COSPLAY-Guyz. I know a few who are actually pretty cool-and BIG Shocker, love and read Comics. So as in all things, they are the exception to the rule. Heres the statement I wanna make, based on THE RULE: “Hey! Quasi-Cute-NOT-Hot-Guy, you are more pathetic than the REAL Nerds, who YOU secretly think are REALLY PATHETIC. But we are onto you. Some of us are aware that you are ever so average on an everyday basis. But you have a couple of things going your way. You are willing to become almost completely Naked in public, and yer either athletic (Well, some or most of you, THINK you are ) or you have Big Biceps. Notice I didnt say GREAT Biceps? You are what I refer to as “CON-HOT”. Well not by my estimation, but according to a LOT of average Comic Book Fans who either RARELY speak to, or NEVER speak to guys. Some Virgins, ALL unconfident when it comes to guys, and the ONE thing they all have in common? The are being preyed on by YOU. You have this really awful need for attention, for people to tell you your cute, or Hot, and the thought of girls pleasuring themselves to the memory of you hanging on them with your exposed abs, promising them the Moon and the Stars of pleasure, just makes your head vibrate. After many years of watching this shit go down every 3 seconds around or in front of my booth or table at ANY given Con in the country, I put this together. Well not just me. We are LEGION. And here it is, THE REASON WHY ALL THAT, sickens us: BECAUSE YOU DONT KNOW SHIT ABOUT COMICS, BEYOND WHATEVER GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH YOU DID TO GET REF ON THE MOST MAINSTREAM CHARACTER WITH THE MOST REVEALING COSTUME EVER. And also, if ANY of these girls that you hang on tried to talk to you out of that Con? You wouldnt give them the fucking time of day. Shut up you damned liar, no you would not. Lying, Liar Face. Yer not Comics. Your just the thing that all the Comic Book, AND mainstream press flock to at Cons. And the real reason for the Con, and the damned costumes yer parading around in? That would be Comic Book Artists, and Comic Book Writers who make all that shit up.
if I see one more “gypsy/indie” bullshit blog link, I’m going to scream

So, I saw this Mesh Corset from True Corset in Lucy’s list of corsetieres who offer mesh corsets. This is my first time ordering from True Corset as I had never heard of them before, but they offered RTW sizing and had a good shopping cart system that made me comfortable ordering from them.
Note to any corsetmakers that offer RTW corsets: if I have to email you to place an order, it makes me very uncomfortable about your credit card security. It’s different when I’m ordering a bespoke piece, because I have to communicate with you personally for that, but if I want a standard sized corset in a style you offer without any modifications, I should be able to click an “Add to Cart” button that takes me right to a page where I can order it. I don’t want to send my billing and credit card info via email.
I ordered this corset for one-day shipping including Saturday delivery, which was $25, on Wednesday. On Saturday I had gotten the order confirmation but not the shipping notification, so I sent an email to customer service and got a quick response from Sabrina, who apologized for the mistake and offered me a set of six free suspenders (the corset has 6 garter tabs) and a refund on my shipping. She said that the warehouse wasn’t open on weekends but they would definitely ship it out first thing Monday. I got it on Tuesday, so I’m pretty happy with their customer service even though the shipping was delayed.
So here it is straight out of the package. I ordered a size 28 for my 34” waist. The first thing I noticed was how light and thin it was because of the mesh. It’s single boned, with a five-panel construction. Normally I would prefer a double boned corset but I knew that going in.
It’s laced correctly right out of the package, although honestly, for a lightweight corset like this, I think the heaviness of the laces was a little much. I am considering replacing them with a double-faced satin ribbon, to make it smoother to lace up and has a nicer hand. There’s nothing really “wrong” with the laces though, it’s just my preference.
The site says the corset’s length is 10 inches with a nine-inch busk. As you can see the length in the front is really 9.5 inches.
It doesn’t lay completely flat, but the panels are nearly rectangular compared to the corsets I’ve bought from SugarKitty and What Katie Did. Then again, I didn’t pay $80 for anything from SugarKitty or What Katie Did, either… This made me concerned about the fit, though.
I’m used to seeing the waist tape going all the way across the length of the corset. It’s weird that it’s only spanning 3/5 panels. Is that really functional?
Here it is laced at a two-inch reduction for seasoning. (Sorry I don’t wear pants at home.) It actually fits a lot better than I thought it would, but you can still see that it pinches at the hips. I’m too much of a pear for this corset. I’ll know for sure after I season it, but I think if I wanted to train down further I would have to hack-and-slash some hip gores or lace it unevenly. Other than that, though, the fit on this is actually pretty comfortable. Unlike other corsets I’ve seasoned, where after two hours of wear I’m screaming “Get me out of this thing!”, I feel like I could wear this corset all night and even sleep in it.
Here’s the lacing gap in the back. Ugh, those bendy steels make me cringe. Should I buy some different flat steel bones and replace them?
wear a properly fitting bra for your sexy gifs. please.
