@graygodess20:  With corsets you get what you pay for. Even if they’re steel boned, they won’t have the same quality and longevity of a custom made corset. I was really tempted by corsets-uk (the uk version of the same site) but glad I went the custom route. Just a quick google and you’ll come up with loads of reviews comparing corsets from sites like the above with higher end corsets. Assuming you’re talking about wearing a corset under your dress, I would definitely steer clear of the site you mentioned. You’ll want something that fits neatly and smoothly under your dress, and is most importantly comfortable. Perhaps try what katie did, or search reviews for local seamstresses for a truly custom fit.

oooh I have a couple but unless you’re accustomed to wearing them I wouldn’t do a full day in a steel boned corset.  They provide aLOT of support but also make it difficult to breathe and eat more than a handful.  And drink – i puked once after a few drinks because there was no room for the alcohol.  I would NOT recommend it on such a long, tiring day unless you get your body accustomed to it first.

I bought mine from Sweet Carousel – she makes custom corsets and you can order online.  Its very high quality – great fabrics and all handmade by one person.  She made a corset for Lady Gaga back when I first found her a few years ago.

I’d be careful getting it to fit under your dress without it affecting the fit – it maight poke out under the armpits/chest/back, so if you have a dress already you might just get it built into your dress (depending on style).  Otherwise, take the corset with you.

Besides all they they are SO fun to wear and make you feel super sexy.  If you have any questions, just ask.  I’ve got a whole range of bustiers and corsets including custom steel boned.  Cheers!

I will say that a full steel-boned corset is UNCOMFORTABLE AS HELL.  My Fiance participates in a recreationist society and I have worn a 1500’s dress with a full steel-boned coreset for a full 8-hour day and by the 4-hour mark I wanted out and I wanted out NOW!lol  If you can purchase one with a sturdy plastic they are almost as supportive with less weight and a bit more flexibility.  They do hold up very well (speaking from a size 14 with 38D breasts)  Using high density polyethylene works just about as well as spring steel and FAR more comfortable.  

just a suggestion!

Hello. I wear a steel boned corset daily. And there is no reason it shouldn’t be comfortable as long as your not lacing past your capability. If you can’t take a full breath it’s too tight. If you want it to be really pulled in you’ll have to train with it before the big day. Personally I would   Check out Lucy’s corsetry. She has reviews of tons of corsets currently on the market as well as does custom work herself. Also if you have bigger girls you may want an under bust corset. Hope that was helpful

I just bought a fully boned one from Corset-Story and the quality is incredible. It is super heavy duty, incredibly well made and comparable to the $300-500 corsets that I was seeing locally in Austin. I am so happy with my choice.
