Bondage Ballerina

My upbringing and personal style has always been influenced by a more alternative route. I adore corsetry; the history of the pieces, the feminity of a well worn corset, the exuding sexuality of wearing one…I currently own two, as well as having made a few in my HS design years (actually came out rather good!)

Though corsets are meant to be worn as a subtle slimming beneath clothes, I’ve always found them gorgeous as they are. I’ve worn mine out on many a crazy party night, but am learning to wear them in a more fashion and daylight friendly way, as seen below.

  7. The combo absolutely works! I love that you are willing to reimagine the use of certain items…

  8. I love, love, love corsets! They give such a beautiful Victorian-style feminine shape to the body. Your look is very pretty!
