not too shabby at all,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hold Tight PVC Or Satin Corset
though of course it is faux leather which felt flimsier than i expected, it actually looks pretty nice. I've only tried it on so i haven't spent much time in it but i feel for the price its great. if you are thinking of getting one of those pretty Asian print (brocade) print ones DONT! get this one. you'll look just as hot and this one wont rip on you like the brocade fabric one will. so in other words if you cant get a true corset made for you with the heavy canvas and tons of steel boning. this one will do you just fine. the steel boning it has is flexible but unlike the nylon boning in most corsets and special occasion dresses, it wont poke through the fabric and stab you. Also the busks, though they require some patients to get them all fastened, once in place they are not going to bend over backwards like flimsy hooks would. quite pleased. would recommend for anyone on a budget or those NOT seeking historically accurate last-you-forever corsets.

you said this requires a lot of "patients"...does that mean you were forced to have others lace you into this corset, or were you referring instead to the realisation that properly fitting yourself into said corset simply takes more time and effort - as well as patience??simply curious of whats might be necessary to adequately place and cinch the corset alone or if assistance might be required, as the lacing or boning might be difficult to work with...thanks

anyone new to corsets whether this fashion style or serious steel boned will need practice to be able to do themselves. You don't see those old fashion pictures of the woman holding her bedpost and her family or maid tightening it for no reason. However, fashion corsets are easier to lace in the back especially with practice and if you have multiple mirrors, the busks if you've never put on before, make the back as loose as possible first and then hook your busk, then lace yourself up. Don't unlace the ribbon in the back, just loosen it so the busk (front) is almost loose putting around you, it will make it much easier to make sure each is hooked securely before lacing. Steel busks only have so much give which is why it can get frustrating when you first start.
