I finally finished altering my corset, and I’m really happy with how it came out. I had to add 10” to the hips.
All of my decent bras are in the wash, so I had to try it on without one, which seemed to be a bad idea because I couldn’t lace the top half of it properly. I might still need to add a couple of 1” gores at the ribs, though, but I’m not sure. We’ll see.
I could only throw it on quickly because my tummy has been hurting a lot recently and I don’t want to aggravate it more. External waist was 36”. Natural waist is 35”
(excuse the messy clothes. I’m currently dying my hair.)
I was feeling a bit down the last few weeks so today I decided to try on all my favorite clothes I haven’t worn in a while. This is one of my favorite op shop dresses, I just love this colour. Sadly my old corset is on its last legs, and none of my others have the same amount of reduction. Time to commission a new one I suppose :)

I was trying for 28 inches but achieved 27 1/2 inches. Wore it all day at work with no problem. I am starting to see results. As I loose weight, I will be seeing it more.
