Some behind the scenes snaps from my shoot yesterday.

The other corset (and yes, it isn’t a perfect fit) : http://www.vollers-corsets.com/
More and more companies are now catering to full-figured clients, and even women with waists over 60” (over 150 cm) have options! In this article, all the following makers make corsets OVER a closed waist size of 40”, which most OTR companies generally don’t carry.
(Featured photo is Courtney modelling a Jupiter Moon 3 ensemble. Jupiter Moon 3 has made corsets for natural waists up to 60”.)
I am really touched to hear that. I’m sorry about that assholery on Facebook. As cliche as this sounds, it’s also very true, but people that are callous about that sort of thing? Well, in my experience, they are really feeling lousy about something in their own lives and decide to lash out on people who they think are easier targets.
Feel free to post images of your corset. I bet your bf has good taste and that you look beautiful in them :)
Gentlemen wear corsets too, but sometimes it can be difficult to find makers who cater to cinching down the waist while maintaining a masculine physique.
In my last giveaway, over 50 men wrote to me explaining how corsets provided them with back support, helped to relieve pain and anxiety, and controlling a little potbelly to fit back into their suits - not to mention they look amazing.
The following corsetiers and businesses in this gallery are experienced in making masculine corsets.
(Featured Photo is from The House of Canney, which I may or may not have swooner over.)
For all you gentlemen followers. :)
We love Every-BODY :)
Because a corset is not a fatphobic item? I mean, people can appreciate how a short woman looks wearing very high heels but does this mean people and the woman herself dislike short people? Liking a specific silhouette that highlights the assets of a body, especially a fat one is not something bodyshaming. It’s just a look. Also, corsets can feel wondeful for a lot people and I know some women who prefer it to a bra.
You like a work done by a person of color. You want that author/creator of color to suceed. You want more support for their work, whether that is in television or a novel or comic books or a movie.
Because let’s face it, the reason a lot of PoC authors/creators are not as well-known as their white counterparts is pretty much the R-word.
And what is that R-word? Rheumatism? Retina? Rocks?
This is where the blog, Kindred Words, comes in. You want to get a favorite PoC author/creator their due?
Submit a work by your favorite author/creator and we will publish it to the public eye.
Like our blog already says, it’s important to expect high standards for white writers when writing people of color characters but it’s just as important that we support the writing careers of people of color.
