    Im one of these people that often slouches and im wanting a corset to give me a bit more shape and try and stop me slouching on nights out etc.
    Where can I pick one up reasonably cheaply??
    Please don’t turn this thread into a debate about tight lacing I don’t intend getting into any of that!

    maybe lingerie stores? but yeah in the long run you can jsut train yourself not to do it. i used to be soooo slouchy but i jsut made a conscious effort not to be anymore, all you need to do is make yourself sit properly like up straight shoulders back etc. its tiring at first and you have to keep remembering to do it but after a few weeks it becomes habit and is much healthier?
    internet is probs your best bet if not

    Hey,

    The high street do cute fashion type ones but they aren't proper steel boned corsets. For a decent one you'll have to spend a few more pennies but it'll be worth it as it wont get the weird bend in the middle where the plastic bones have gone mishapen.
    Try 'What Katie Did.com'. Brilliant shop with gorgeous corsets. Happy shopping

    I would say you should be able to get a really good one for £100 - £150.

    Heres the link to a stunning one which only cost £120. The site also does waist cinchers which are better for wearing under outfits as they allow more movement and less restriction on the ol boobies whilst still giving great waist definition.

    How about a nice girdle instead? It seems as though you want a corset for practical not fashionable reasons hence a girdle is more appropriate.

    I've always had a thing for Morgana. She's been my fave goth model for years. Her stuff is absolutely breathtaking. I'll certainly be aiming for one of her couture cupped longline corsets at some point.
