    Hi, Lucy. It appears as though you may have the Timeless Trends Hourglass Creme Cotton Underbust Corset size 24 in stock. I have a new corset to return to TT due to the TT size tool recommended size having been too small. I’m also A possible issue is that I might only be to exchange it due to having purchased it on sale. The main one I want is the Hourglass Creme Cotton Underbust Corset, which they’re out of in 24”. I live in Central West Coast Florida, so a cotton corset is probably the best for me waist training during our long, hot summer, and I stealth train only. Any advice?

    Best regards,
    Melissa Palmer

  4. Hi Lucy. Love your videos on youtube. Im a guy in the uk and im considering starting wearing corsets full time. Mainly because i love the way it helps your posture and the way it looks and feels when wearing corsets. Can you recomend anyone in the uk who can provide help and support for a me? as i dont know if anyone in my social group that would be of any help… Thanks. Lee.

    • Hi Lee, I have a page dedicated specifically to men’s corsets here! Clicking through any of those photos, it will redirect you to each maker’s website where you can learn more and contact them about a commission. If you’re looking for someone specifically in the UK, there is Axford’s corsets, Orchid Corsetry, Heavenly Corsets, C&S Constructions, Jem Corsets, and Sew Curvy Corsetry among others.
      If you’d like to find a corset maker within travelling distance of you, there is also the corsetiere map here (although the map doesn’t specify whether they specialize in men’s corsets).

    Hi Lucy- I’m brand new to corsetry, as in never worn one. Looking for a stealthy longline one. Also I have a bit of a low back issue so my hope is that the improved posture will be a side benefit. Any help or suggestions would be helpful

  6. Are you located in Sacramento area?

  7. Lucy,
    I make Civil War era ball gowns along with the required undergarments. I would really like to take a class on corsets. Do you teach such a thing? I am more of a hands on learner as opposed to a read and do type. I live in Colorado Springs, CO and found you through Google.

    Thanks,
    Janet

    • Hi Janet, unfortunately I don’t do classes, but there are a few corsetieres in Colorado that you might be interested in contacting – including Strait Laced Dame, Crimson Rose Corsetry, and RedThreaded. RedThreaded has a focus on historical corsetry so she might be the closest to your interests! You can find links and see the others in my Corsetiere Map. πŸ™‚

  8. Hi Lucy,

    I’m getting married and looking for a corset that I can wear under my dress. My dress is fitted around the body and stomach area and I’d like to try to hide some problem areas, but don’t want to be able to see bumps from the corset.

    Do you have anything that could help?

    Thanks
    Lauren

    Hi Lucy
    I am plus sized and starting to wear corset, I have been able to wear it for about 10 hours a day from the get go, not super tight, but enough to help me with back problems too. Long story short my job is active and I wear my corset under a TShirt, problem is the busk will rub against my tee and that will make holes on my TShirt! I work as a bartender at a brewery hence I say my job is active, how can I stop this from happening? Any sort of “covers” for a corset busk?
    Thanks
    Odette

    • Hi Odette, I made a tutorial a few years back on how to make a flap in the front panel of a corset to cover the busk, maybe it will help – but it’s mostly for corsets you’re making yourself. Would you ever consider making your own corset? (Or commissioning a custom corset from someone and showing them this video, so they can cover the busk for you?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_DeO-HMq8E

  10. Hey Lucy I’m interested in a corset for rib flare that I have. Do you still make conical corsets for rib flare so I can slowly train my ribs inward? Thanks!

    Hi my name is Madison , I am M2fF in transition I am not fat but want to shape my belly for that hourglass shape a woman should have , can you help me pick out the one that would be best for me ? Thank you πŸ’‹

  12. Heya Lucy, I’m having real trouble finding a corset that will fit me properly. I have an underbust of 33″ an over bust of 37″ a natural waist of 25″ and hips that are 34″, due too this finding any corset that hasn’t been too loose round the waist has been a night mare.
    Have you got any suggestions??

  13. jana on said:

    Hi Lucy,
    I’m a 15 year old Austrian girl and not unlike you I am fascinated of corsets. I sew a bit myself and thanks to you I finally managed it to sew my own corset. I am still a beginner and I didn’t succeed in finishing up my corset properly. It fits perfectly but just looks awful at the end, it fringes terribly! I don’t know what to do!
    can you help me?

  14. Mary Butera on said:

    Hi Lucy, I find you and your sites fascinating and have read most of them. However, I am a 95 year old retired nurse and educator who has had successful back surgery (1955). I am now experiencing lower back pain, got a sort of camp corset that proved to be helpful in the past. I am having a problem finding a liner and that’s when I stumbled across your site. I ordered and received your special liner, bit it is too big and long . Should it cover the whole butt area? It just slides right on and I can insert two fingers on either side of the top edge without touching the liner itself. I obviously need help. I have been searching for about 6 months trying to find the right thing so I have read much and have accumulated so much information and forgotten at least half. I’d like to start fresh. What measurements should I send you to get a near perfect.t liner. If you do not accept returns or exchanges, I will keep this one and start over. I am anxious to start walking in improved comfort. Your help will be greatly welcomed and appreciated. Thank you.

    I have a few corsets that I need to sell. How do I go by this process?

    • Hi Carly, I’m no longer selling corsets by consignment, but there are a few corset selling groups on Facebook like “Corsets For Sale”, “Corsets On Sale”, and the ‘wish to sell’ thread in The Tightlacing Society. And they don’t take any commission on your sales. πŸ™‚

  16. Hi Lucy,
    I have waist trained in the past. I just had a tummy tuck and wanted to see what your option was about when I can wear my corset again. Unfortunately all the binders the doctors want me to wear are too big on me. The reason they suggest to wear one during the healing process is to reduce swelling and to support the lower back. I would apricate any suggestions. Thankyou

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hi Cole, it can take a long time to heal from such an operation and I’m not familiar with your medical history – I know that some people have successfully used corsets as compression wear following their procedures, but it would be best to ask your doctor if switching to a corset would be okay. Corsets can potentially give much stronger compression compared to the post surgical binders (of course, you’re always in control of exactly how tight the corset is).

      • I got back from my doctor today and yes, he agreed that corsets do help with tummy tuck swelling and gives good back support. I’m wearing mine now, and I feel so much better. Thankyou for getting back to me. πŸ™‚

    Hi Lucy. Have you tried the Audrey underbust corset from Isabella corsetry? I want to know if you have a review about it before I actually order one just in case its not the proper fit for me. My underbust to waist measurement is 4 inches ; from the underbust to my lap is 8-9 inches. Thanks for your time. ?

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hello Jaena, I’m sorry I haven’t tried the Audrey underbust! It would be best to contact Isabella Corsetry directly with your question. πŸ™‚

  18. Kennedy on said:

    Hello! I’ve been interested in corsets for a while now and I’d love to see how it will work for me, especially since I have scoliosis. I don’t have a big enough curve for it to be deemed serious but you can tell that my spine isn’t straight by my physical appearance. My shoulders are slightly uneven (you can tell if you look closely), my hips/waist is uneven so it’s like I have two different hips/waists. Though I never really have been bothered by that, I would like to ‘straighten things out’ and have a more even waist. Another benefit this would be for me is better posture as it is a little difficult for me to sit upright for long periods of time. It can cause my back to ache a little. I’ve also read the benefits section of this site and was surprised at what I read because I never knew that corsets could benefit you in that way! The next time I go to the doctors (or whatever you call it) to get my spine checked or maybe on my first physical exam, I’ll ask if it’s ok for me to start using a corset. I do have a question though as to what corset would be right for me? Because the last thing I’d want to do is get the wrong one and suffer the physical consequences!

    I’m trying to sell my red and lace corset I bought it for 300 bucks do you know where I could possibly sell to the side of course I don’t want $300 for it

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hi Heather, there is a group on Facebook called “Corsets On Sale”, you can access it through the larger group “The Tightlacing Society” and that sale group has thousands of people buying and selling gently used and sample corsets at discount.

  20. lola on said:

    Hi lucy,am new at waist training and as such would need you to help with the corset to begin with.am a plus size with a waist 38″ hip is 53″ will have to check my under bust and get back to you.but the challenge here is am in Nigeria,do you ship to nigeria and how much will both d corset and shipping cost me.

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hi Lola, different corsets cost different amounts, but generally speaking one of the standard length corsets is $109 and shipping to Nigeria is $47, so the price would be around $156 (although it may cost more than that if you need a longer corset or want your corset to arrive faster). Thanks for your comment!

    How can I determine my size of my waist under the corset? My corseted waist size is 25′ , but I am not sure of my actual waist size while corseted.

  23. I would like to buy a Corset for a short mid section. I will send my measurements shortly.
