Well hello there,
I’m corset mad – really.
|A 1980s C&A original!|
I have a fairly androgynous shape I think – broad shoulders, rectangular body, flat bum – I’m not sure I felt masculine or feminine when I was younger. If you saw me from behind you might wonder if I was male or female. I often felt like a fraud in a skirt and pretty puffed sleeved top – really – these did NOT suit me. So when I was about fourteen I tried on my mother’s zip up corset top from C & A – suddenly I got it. I felt feminine. I felt pretty. And I also felt like Snow White when she got tied too tightly into a corset by the peddlar woman… the wicked stepmother! I LOVED that story – I think I read it a hundred times, poring over the beautiful pictures of Snow White swooning in ties, or golden combs or poisoned apples…
Anyway – back to the clothing! I inherited that very corset and here I am in it today…
Corsets are my one indulgence. I don’t go to the beauty parlour, or hairdresser, I still think of the shoes I bought three years ago as ‘my good new ones’.
I only wear steel boned now. I don’t have a custom made one like Malin’s but I hope to one day – though the bloomers were hand made especially for me by a friend of mine. There’s another kink – next time!
Here are some of my corsets
|Green steel boned|

|Black underbust –
this is my favourite corset of all

This is a squeeze!
Pass the smelling salts 😀
