pretty girls in corsets: laced tight

Saturday, November 27, 2004


Of course a beautifully corseted, throughly modern, girl is a treat. You can see just how well a corset displays a young lady's breasts in this shot...I'm hoping those are washable tatoos... Posted by Hello

Any girl who has tried to put on her own shoes, especially shoes like these, laced into a corset will appreciate the lovely maid's efforts. Corsets are not made for girls who are forever bending down or running for a bus. The hourglass waist, like lily white skin, told the world the corseted girl didn't work...This is a 1950's shot, likely by Irving Klaw. Posted by Hello

A fabulous looking girl shot in the Playmate style of hard light and highlights. The only thing wrong with this picture is that the corset is both too large and not laced tightly. But at least it is on the right way...too often a clever stylist decides the corset will look better with the laces in front...sigh. Posted by Hello

What a lovely corset from the 1950's. You can see how much waist reduction can be accomplished with a bit of tight lacing and a well made underbust corset.  Posted by Hello

For people new to corsets there is one vital corset site: The LongIsland Staylace Association. Here real people, like the lovely girl above, show off their tightlacing and share pictures and movies of corsetry. It is a huge site and great fun. Posted by Hello

Lacing is the foundation of a great deal of fetish and mainstream fashion. Using the corset lines a designer can exagerate and emphasize particular aspects of a woman's body... Posted by Hello

In the 1950's corsets went underground into the land of fetish magazines and 4x6 photoprints. Which is not to say that country club girls were not wearing dainty little waist cinchers which laced down hard...but these were not discussed and only bad girls like this one would ever think of wearing a black corset.... Posted by Hello

This is the classic, black satin waist cincher. This one is cut over the girl's hips and well under her breasts. The little metal loops at the front are like buttons and they are attached to a thin steel plate called a busk...Laced in your waist contracts and your tummy is pushed in. Constricting at first; but shallow breaths and a straight back will see a girl through. Posted by Hello

If you like corsets sooner or later you will run across the pinup queen of corsets: Dita von Teese. there are literally thousands of shots of this brunette beauty in corsets, heels and very little else...This is a wonderful full corset, lace tight and just over Dita's lovely white hip. I think she's gorgeous! Posted by Hello

A dressing room in Paris. Circa 1952. The lovely girl chatting to her suited friend is wearing both a girdle and a little waist cincher corset. Dior's "New Look" required a pinched waist...girls rushed to comply.. Posted by Hello

This red overbust corset shows how well a girl's breasts are supported in a good corset. Cradled in cups which push up rather than suspend, your breasts are nicely displayed, cleavage comes with the territory. Now, if the girl would just cinch this down a little she would have a wonderful shape... Posted by Hello

Of course, for slight girls, having the corset cut over the hip creates a tiny waist with the rest of the girl as God made her. Cinched tight a hip spring - that is the distance between the girl's hip and her corseted waist of three to five inches is possible, if a bit uncomfortable. You whould see what it does with a pair of jeans.. Posted by Hello

Some girls like to wear their corsets with period lingerie. This is a cute example of an Edwardian corset which not only cinches in the girl's waist but also comresses her hips. By going over the hips the corset creates a complete line... Posted by Hello

Linda Evangelista does not need a corset; but that does not stop her from looking wonderful in one. Corsets on fit or thin women create a double take: people seeing you on the street sense something is odd....but they don't realize that it is your waist four to six inches smaller than an uncorsetted girl's waist would be....They don't call it a wasp waist for nothing... Posted by Hello

Here is a shot which really shows off the ribbon lacing and the solid construction of the corset. Those bones are steel and when you wear the corset for a while they take on your shape. I prefer the longer length corset. One which fits snugly over my hips... Posted by Hello

Here is a shot of the same black corset showing the ribbon lacing. A satin ribbon is much more effective as corset lace than the old style skate laces....less friction so you can pull the corset tight more easily. Posted by Hello

Here is one of my corsets. Black satin, cut across the bust and laced with ribbon. You can see how beautifully it draws in my waist and creates a lovely proportion between my hips and bust... Posted by Hello

This is the classic corset. Below the bust, slightly over the hips. This objective, among others, is to reduce the girl's waist to show off her hips, bottom and, of course, breasts. Which this lovely black corset does to perfection I think. Posted by Hello

High fashion is no stranger to corsets...Gautier is the most famous, but Azadine Alaia dressed his models in corsets occassionally. This beauty, who is tiny to begin with, looks to have been cinched at least six inches for this shot. Posted by Hello
