Corsets

Well hello there,

I've been inspired by Malin James' post and Kink of the Week to let you in to the secret world of Tabitha...

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

Red sweetheart neckline
Buxom!

Black underbust -
this is my favourite corset of all

Little red underbust
This is a squeeze!
Pass the smelling salts :D

  4. I love the red longline corset, it wouldn't fit me as I am too short in the body but it looks beautiful on you
