I have a secret, I feel like I need to share.
Do you see that thing around my waist? It’s a corset, Yup a bonified steel boned Gone With The Wind Corset
Now I definitely don’t lace down to a 18 in waist, as much as I might like too. But I do like to wear them. Most of the time I wear one under my clothes but occasionally I wear them outside of my clothes.
Why on earth would I subject myself to this “torture” We are women and have long since passed the days of wearing things like this. I has a friend say to me when she found my collection of corsets.
I wear mine for a few different reasons. I have PCOS as well as a few other things that cause me pain. I have a lot of pain in my lower abdomen as well as chronic pinched nerves and back pain. I originally got my corset because my pinched nerve was so bad I couldn’t stand up out of my bed without crying from the pain, let alone work, go to class or anything else.
Second I like the shape it gives me, with out my corset I don’t like the way I look in my work uniform for instance, with it My stomach is held inn, my waist curves in instead of bulging out, and I just think I look better.
Another reason I wear a corset is because I do have PCOS and have a problem with my weight. I wear the corset because I don’t eat as much when I have it on, not because I am not hungry, but because my stomach is compressed slightly and it causes me to eat slower and therefore realize when I am full and stop there!
I want to say right now this is NOT a sponsored post, (but hey if they want to sponsor me I’d be thrilled!) But all my corsets are off the rack corsets from one particular company. I get my Corsets from Corset Story. Particularly from their sale section. I have 4 underbust corsets and 2 overbust ones.
If you are interested in corsets or want to hear more about my journey with them let me know I would love to tell more people about this!
