|QUESTION FOR THE MONTH
Do you think that CYBOUTIQUE, Frederick's of Hollywood, and other retail/mailorder shops do corseting a service or disservice, to offer plastic boned, lingerie-style off-the peg corsets to newcomers to corseting? Should we corset enthusiasts urge new customers to save their funds and invest in a custom garment, sometimes at three times the cost, in
order to insure a fair experience with a good corset?
In answer to our first question, of whether or not one would start lacing from the top to the waist, or from the bottom to the waist, we have no general consensus and no overwhelming opinion. It seems that whatever works is fine. Personally, I find that when lacing myself or another, I go from the top to waist first, so that must "feel" most natural to me.
