Rather pleased with my costume updates, and the effect #hooping is having on my bod! #burlesque #costume #peach #pinup #showgirl #burlesquedancer #dancer #vintage #vintagestyle
I’m posting this publicly so everyone can see what a shameless ignorant asshole and vile hateful human being this person is.
Let me be the first to make it clear that Christine’s passing had zero to do with corsetry. It was actually due to complications from a yoga injury, and none of us are decrying yoga as deadly. Putting aside this person’s blatant ignorance of how ones health can or cannot be affected by corseting (something which, being a medical student Christine was exceptionally well informed of) or even that I need corsets for daily pain relief and do not consider myself a tightlacer or waist trainer at all. I was very close to her and this is a heartless insult to her grieving family and community, who have all been profoundly affected by her loss. I am still grieving every day, and working as hard as I do to perfect my craft (of which this person probably has no comprehension of the skill and time it takes to master) as a way to honor her and remain close to her. To dishonor the dead and the mourning in such a hateful threatening way is the cowardly act of a bored and idiotic person who has nothing in their heart but hatred, selfishness, and spite.
Her parents and the corset community have NEVER hidden the cause of her death. Those of us close to her and almost every of our mutual friends know that she died of a pulmonary embolism caused by a yoga injury.
I am normally not a fan of witch-hunting but this hatred has got to stop!
Not only have the things you said have ranged from cruel and untrue, you are a HYPOCRITE.
You too were a corset-wearer, or did you conveniently forget?
Just stop this madness and cruelty, what do you gain from all this?
It seems that you have a lot of pent-up anger, I highly recommend you get a hobby and friends.
If anyone is reading this has questions about corsets, please don’t go by whispers and information that is twisted to sound the juiciest. Please remember that there are healthy ways to do things and harmful ways to do things in all forms of life, art, expression, fashion… whatever you want to class it as.

The truth is actually kind of boring. No, no-one’s has found that their stomach as been pushed into their earlobe because they wear a corset at high waist reduction. No, no-one who is approaching this sensibly with quality garments carefully designed for this purpose from the proper materials is fainting constantly and suffering lung infections. Do some people hurt themselves because they’re doing silly things? Of course, but if something seems too saucy to be true (“WOMAN WANTS TO BE LIVING JESSICA RABBIT BY WEARING CORSET”) it probably is.
Reblogging because all this prejudice and hatred has to stop! A person has passed away from an injury that was in no way corset related, and this is just adding insult to injury as her friends and family are still grieving.
Check out the links above if you wonder anything. Get educated and know your shit before assuming things.
And show love, not hate.
As for the “Living Jessica Rabbit” articles floating around, said person is underbust who gave an interview which ended up getting twisted-and-turned. She has explained in the past (on her Youtube channel) that she wants boobs for the sake of it. Also, she has a 26” corseted waist, larger than the claimed 23” in those articles. Sadly, tabloids are really full of shit and couldn’t care less about what is true and what isn’t.
I think I misread the comment mentioning me. I was all angry about everything and jumped hastily to shitty conclusions. Sorry! e_e;;

fat cat running
look at him… look at how deliberate each step and movement is. look at how mathematically perfect that 90 degree corner turn was… this cat is on another level far beyond us all
Dieting and waist-training are a powerful combination! But… needing a new, smaller corset every couple of months (and needing a wider hip-spring than is typically available in OTR) has prompted me to learn to make my own!
So I picked up a used sewing machine, watched a ton of YouTube…
