If you are new to the world of corsets and corsetry, then the first place to visit is YouTube, to find Lucy of Lucy’s Corsetry.
With the largest collection of corset tutorials and reviews on the internet, most of your corset questions can be found in one of her videos or in the comments. Lucy answers all of her comments with care and attention and has recently collaborated with Timeless Trends to make off the rack corsets available for sale via her website.
Lucy occasionally makes some of her own handmade or gently used corsets available for sale on her website and I find that she’s a dream to purchase from since she and I wear similar corset waist and rib sizes. Score!
Also, because of my passion for absurd amounts of fashion, buying vintage or pre-loved quality goods is something I thoroughly enjoy.
So between my Pearls & Arsenic corset collection, Lucy, and my favourite Etsy seller, TheTrashyVictorian, my wardrobe basics of corset tops and wiggle skirts is pretty much sorted!
Now just for some Sass and Bide ebay buys and a few Tara Starlet or Le Bomb Shop dresses to round it all out.
I’m fairly sure that Lucy can relate to my zeal for curvaceous fashion, since she has an annual update on her corset collection and it is definitely an extensive one.
Perhaps this similarity is one of the reasons why I wanted to have an ongoing Pearls & Arsenic corset giveaway with Lucy…
It’s always lovely to meet other people who share a love for corsetry, and I’m very much looking forward to my Pearls & Arsenic giveaways with Lucy, starting with a cute little cherry red crystal embellished underbust this summer.
Stay tuned on my instagram @TheRavenTao for updates on the giveaway!
