I bought this corset for a steampunk faire and it was better than I ever could have imagined! I have a pretty large bust (44D) and smaller waist (34") so it's sometimes a challenge to find a corset that accommodates... but this one is truly amazing! I wore it for a whole weekend at faire and wasn't uncomfortable, and this corset certainly stood up to the beating I gave it (and the boning is certainly sturdy!). Can't wait for an excuse to wear it again!!
the corset is even better than pictured. well put together, i love the finish on the metal, old gold meets new steampunk. the heart shaped detail is a lovely touch on the chain fastner. i am a larger girl, and it is cut well for me, and flattering. i can hardly wait to wear it out to an event. very impressed with the construction. as a sewer, and a fussy buyer, i can say you will be impressed too. the rich chocolate brocade type material goes well with nearly anything. i plan to wear mine with an olive skirt, and a striped black skirt so far.
2 thumbs up. if you are thinking of buying it, don't hesitate. well worth it.
