So, are any of you ladies or gentlemen wearing a corset as daily wear?  What challenges do you face and what stories do you have about going out socially with a radically altered siluette?Continue

I have neglected this group shamefully. I recently sis a presentation at a Victorian festival about wearing corsets and doing housework in the 19th century. Rather than lecturing, I actually did the actions and there was some pretty funny commentary too. Video was taken, but needs some editing.  Stay tuned.

Welcome, Brenda! Your corset looks beautiful, love the diagonal bands near the waist. I bet those give a flattering effect of accentuating the waist when worn.

Hello, my name is Brenda and I am new to the group. I look forward to reading about corsets and seeing photos to inspire me. I am new to corset making, however I am advanced in dressmaking. I wanted to share a photo of corset I made, which is my 3rd. I think I have found a new love. Reading books and learning more about this wonderful garment.

Good day to you all.

Professor Argon Bats recommended that I come to you for advice on how to make a corset. I am unfamiliar with types of corsetry and the appropriate vocabulary although I have made several ball gowns that include boning so I think I'll be able to handle construction.

Let me compliment you on the stunning photographs! Wonderful work! I hope that with your guidance I shall be able to exhibit something in the not too distant future.

I can see your point, professor, and I agree.  I am still thinking on this.

Comment by Professor Argon Bats on April 13, 2015 at 8:19am

In response to Miss Cherries' message - I can see the attraction of using Facebook, wider audience.

However no matter what kind of group you make it, if you are at all concerned with "privacy", fb would not be my first choice. They collect way to much information to allow you to create an account, have lousy security for those data (a acquaintance of mine is an MIT computer engineer and said it's so pitiful he could hack into an account in under five minutes without hardly thinking about it, and that  employees at many "sensitive" jobs are banned from having fb accounts). Even with no hacking whatsoever, fb is set to publicize everything to everyone unless you tell it not to, and it resets those preferences of yours all the time to "optimize". As you can probably tell, I personally despise facebook and will not use it. It's an identity theft's heaven. But I also realize that I am in a tiny minority of "paranoid" people. We all have different concerns and pet peeves in life!

I also think the esthetics are rather drab and certainly not steampunk, but that's another matter.

That being said, I suspect most users would be fine with the change.

Did anyone go to the corsetry panel at the Steampunk Symposium?  I think I will start asking for reports on what is being said at some of these conventions.
