    I am just very weak and succumbed to my inner lust for clothes and bought this corset today



    I couldn't resist as it was reduced from £155 to £89. Hopefully it will arrive this week!

    I feel so guilty now.

    This arrived yesterday and I got around to trying it on today. It doesn't fit very well, it's too small really (I ordered an 18" instead of a 20" as they hadn't got stock in a 20").

    Now the question is what to do. The returns policy allows you change a corset once. Do I get the same corset in a different colour which is a 20", get a completely different corset, or just keep this one. I can wear this one, but it is a little small.

    Personally I'd exchange for a pewter 20". Versatile colour, and personally I don't see the point in keeping stuff that doesn't fit (She says, owning a completely unwearable corset that she can't quite bring herself to sell...)

    Do you like the pewter version? It's not totally doing it for me really. Wish there was a proper picture of it. Its better then peacock though!



    I want another underbust because I'm wearing the life out of my black satin one, but this is the only style in the sale and I can't afford a full price one at the moment.

    Prehaps pewter would be okay. I would tend to wear it under things more often.

    I love the pewter :yep: although I love grey, so I'm probably a bit odd in that respect. I bought their grey tweed underbust in the sale and I love it.

    Really, though, it's whatever you feel comfortable in

    I have had this one for ages and wear it loads. I have had it dry cleaned twice. It's been a great corset.



    Its comfortable and I wear it all day 2 or 3 times a week. Really good.

    I think the pewter one is very similar so I am going to go for it and use it as a more everyday corset like my black one.

    Still sulking the red silk one doesn't fit!

    That's beautiful, I wish I could pull off something like that!

    Some gorgeous black heels from New Look. First heels I've bought as I'm 5'7 and rather height concious usually, but they were gorgeous and with student discount and my voucher only a tenner.

    Oh, and some more hair dye :ninja:
    Some hold ups.

    30D sounds good, I'm a 32C which sounds okay, but actually looks pretty small!

    A 30D and a 32C are basically the same size! :tongue:

    That's the size I'd like to be, even though it's technically only a cupsize smaller than the 28E I am. :confused: If I wore that dress, there'd be definite cleavage and it wouldn't look as good!

    It looks great, I can't believe it was only £10!
