The first time I bought corset, I was 19 years old. The only place I knew to purchase one (that would fit) was Frederick's of Hollywood. I honestly had no idea what I was doing when I was purchasing one, I just know I was always fascinated with burlesque dances and the Venetian courtesans that wore them in my imagination. I also want a smaller waist, my breast to sit high, and pair them some baby phat jeans (showing my age). My glee of carrying out my black brocade corset in that red bag was a joy for me…and a good corset is still one of favorite pieces of lingerie.
If you are looking for a great first time corset (specifically a French style over bust corset), this is a great one to start with if you are a novice. The shape of this corset is a Valentine Victorian or sweet heart top. The structure has boning throughout the piece and has the laced up back. This comes with a side zipper and not the more common hook and eye clasp. The pattern has beautiful lace brocade and comes with a matching V-String. The corset comes in the following colors: White, Black, Berry, Topaz, and Taupe and goes up to a size 44.
DISCLAIMER: AT THE AGE OF 34, I AM TRYING TO REALIZE WHAT MADE ME DESIRE TO HAVE SOMETHING EMBEDDED IN THE CRACK OF ASS. AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME, I CANNOT DO V-STRINGS AND G-STRINGS ANYMORE. MY CREASES AND CREVICES HAVE DENIED ALL FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES.
ALSO-DO NOT SLEEP IN YOUR CORSET!
Some Key things to keep in mind when purchasing a corset:
One of the best things about lingerie is that it can be both for a look for the night out or a night in. Whether it is some jeans, dress pants, or the matching V-sting, this flirty piece is very cute. The side zipper does make more convenient to get on and off and not having to worry about missing a hook. Again, whether you are a novice or connoisseur, this is a great corset to have in your collection. This piece can be found at SpicyLingeire.com.
