Friday Tip!

Dear Constant Reader,

As your read this, I’m on my way to the Windy City Burlesque Festival where I’ll be teaching 3 costuming classes on Saturday. If you want to learn all about corsetry, costume care, or closures, I’m your gal. I hope to see you there!

Here’s a little tidbit from one of my classes:

If you’re going invest in a corset, make sure it fits you!

A properly fitted corset should be comfortable and supportive. It should feel like you’re being hugged, not squeezed. You should be able to walk and breathe normally. The lacing should be secure, but not digging into your back and you should be able to leave a gap of a couple of inches. Bones shouldn’t poke you at all. Take the time to have a fitting before buying. If you’re making your own, do a mock-up first, bones and all. You’ll look and feel fabulous!

M2Like this tip? There are lots more in Miss Mina Murray’s Little Book of Better Burlesque.
