CorsetChick {Review}

I used to work as a seamstress in a costume shop for a musical theater.  During my time there, I made my fair share of corsets, and now I can really appreciate the time that goes in to making a good one, so when CorsetChick asked if I’d review one of their corsets, I thought, “Get out!  Those things are so hard to make!” and then, “Think of all the great Halloween costumes you could put together with one of these!”

I’m thinking pirate wench, Medieval maiden, opera diva…you can pretty much make any costume cuter and much more feminine with that waist-shaping structure on top of our underneath a costume.  Shoot, you could make a referee outfit cute with a striped corset and a black shorts.

The hourglass shape is timeless, and these corsets really bring out that feminine figure.  Besides wearing a corset to be visible, on top of a costume or outfit, you can’t deny that these provide excellent support and structure underneath clothing as a type of shapewear.  Raise your hand if you wore something like this under your wedding dress.  Or maybe your Prom dress.  These have excellent support because of the lightweight bones sewn through the garment.

I am totally into costumes (hello, I’m a seamstress and into musical theater myself!) so I had to try this out.  This is the White Sweetheart Shape Corset sold for $25.99.  I must say it was much more comfortable that I thought it would be.  There are no edges that dig into the skin because of its long length and dips under the arms.

The steel busks that line the center front are intense!  Talk about some serious hardware!  The beauty of the lace up back is that it becomes fully adjustable.  You can create the illusion of an hourglass figure even if your measurements are not a standard ratio.  Their stock is not limited to pre-teen sizes either.  Their selection of plus-size corsets is just as wide and varied.

The silky outer fabric allows clothing on top to slide around comfortably, and it makes the whole ensemble a little fancier with the shine.  I’m really excited to wear this under some fancy dress the next time we go to a big holiday party, or maybe I’ll incorporate it into some fun Halloween outfit.
Hit up CorsetChick if you’re thinking of adding a corset top to your Halloween costume, or are looking for some shapewear for an upcoming event!  Homecoming, anyone?
