Mini-Review - Corsets-Au Wholesaler Corset

Firstly, hello new followers. Everyone welcome the new bats on the block! Play nice. I figured with over 200 followers (where did you all come from?) I should pick up my act. FV still on hiatus, but as shaun has just picked up a 300-a-week job, I should be back on schedule soon.

So the other week, I was browsing through Corsets-AU ( UK site here and American site here ), just window-shopping, when the sales page caught me. A corset I liked (two, actually, but shhh) was less than $50. With a quick check on my bank funds, I saw I had $35 just sitting there, forgotten, and with a bit of extra from savings, bought myself a present.

Now I wasn't expecting Gallery Serpentine quality here. I was expecting something more like that one Corset-Connection one that I got (remember that? Remember how terrible it was? It was exactly this terrible ) and in this respect, I was happily surprised.

While it wasn't stellar quality, and the waist tape was ribbon (WHY but replacable), it was still great considering it was under $50. The waist shape it gives isn't great, but the profile it gives is fantastic (and the profile view - side on - is what I usually have the most trouble with), and with that in mind I CAN fix the waistline (I don't know how yet, but that's because Bernadette is asleep and not awake telling me how to do things).

The boning is very sturdy. VERY VERY sturdy. I like this. I like this a lot. At worst I can salvage the parts and give them to Nikki or Bern for reuse, since the metal parts are great.

Sarah warned me of two things, the top fabric ripping and the laces being crap. While the top fabric is a big lame but not the worst, the lacing is faaar too short and honestly, craptacular. However, easily replaced.

As of now, I am very happy with my perchase. In a bind, I would definitely purchase again. Many brands resell these wholesale corsets, so they are quite popular. They're worth trying if you are a fan of Timeless-Trends corsets, and the clothing they sell is also quite lovely. Plus, mini hats!

Recommended. Give them a go, let me know what you think!

Yes, pictures!

I've been seeing their adds on the side on my Facebook of a moment now and was wondering about the quality of a 50 $ corset.

I think I'll give them a try. :)

It's good to hear you are having better luck with corsets. Hopefully this the end of your corset rage

I like corset story. They have the best customer service anywhere. I bought two dress sets from them Last year. My green one came just fine and my purple one came without the skirt. I sent an e-mail to them and they sent me a new complete set. I've been meaning to buy a couple of more corsets for occasions, but haven't had the money. The material under my green one has pulled a bit inside at the stitching near the ribbing after A whole days wear with a costume, but other than that they are perfect for a few hours.
