Mislabeling happens, which is understandable because sometimes information like this can be hard to find, manufacturers intentionally or unintentionally (through receiving misinformation themselves) mislabel, and some of it is just plain confusing!
This is by no means meant to be an absolute guide to what definitely is and is not a certain garment, it’s just some general guidelines that these garments usually follow. (Things like closures, boning type, and sizing often vary by manufacturer and style.) It also doesn’t include nearly every type of lingerie and shapewear, as there is so much out there! This is just meant to clear up a few common misconceptions. <3

Take care of yourself, and don’t waste your time on being negative. You have ONE life. ONE. It can be taken from you at any moment. Don’t waste your time dwelling on the things that make you unhappy… Find stuff you love, stuff that brings you pleasure, and throw yourself into it. This is your chance- and if you are spending it dwelling on the things that make you miserable, you’re throwing it away. 

(I almost always accidentally upload stuff to my personal account when I want it to be on my model one, thus the reblogging between my pages. Sorry for the double posts of those who follow me on both.)

Aaaanimal Crossing Handbaaaaagggggg~
Totally found Animal Crossing fabric at the fabric store- lost my shit- made a bag. 
The thing took me about eight hours straight to make. 

I would probably be willing to make some for other people if they’d like- but materials alone cost around $60, then eight hours of work on top of that wasn’t exactly easy. XD so I doubt anybody would want to pay for it, BUT I am proud of my work and will use it often. ^_^

tightlacedwaist said: Hello! I've recently stumbled across an Instagram called risquecurvation who are reposting stolen images, including one of yours. I called them out on it, responded to it with some bullcrap about it being a compliment, there was no copyright, etc, amd blocked me before I could counter it. I'm not sure how often this happens but I thought I should bring it up anyway.

I really appreciate how many people are being awesome to me about this particular photo! However, that photo doesn’t belong to me. It belongs to Barcroft media, and I think it is free to use. =\ I just hate that that company who supposedly sells those latex cincher things is claiming I am one of their clients.

Day 7: Christine
A good friend of mine died, and shortly after finding out, I suddenly felt like I had to save photos of her. So I found a few and printed them.
She lived in Australia, and so I never met her in real life, but just talking to her online she still became my good friend.
She was part of the corset community, and one of the first friends I made in the community. She was quiet an amazing person. She was always fun to talk to, text or web chat.
I talked to her on Skype a couple times.
Christine was a tightlacer, weightlifter, seamstress and med student. A few days ago she was telling me and some friends how she did really well on one of her exams, and was that much closer to becoming a doctor. She was so sweet and encouraging, excitable too.
Christine will be missed. &lt;3

I&#8217;m still just waiting for her to respond to my messages.

Christine Wickham aka agirlfromdownunderblog, owner of Ariadne’s Thread and “A Gift For Lucy Corsetry - Bishonenrancher” mastermind, has passed away.
She was 21 going on 22 (same birth year as me) and was on her way to become a doctor.
As much of a cliche it is, she had her whole life ahead of her.
Not only was she intelligent (she was in one of the top tiers for her last exam), she was also a talented seamstress.
She was a selfless person. She had created a fundraiser for our mutual friend, niche Youtuber lucy-corsetry to travel to the UK for the Oxford Conference of Corsetry.
She even secretly obtained measurements of another mutual friend to make a surprise corset for her.
Despite having argued with her once before (it was my fault), she is one to tell it as it is and I realized my mistakes. She was never bitter and never held a grudge. She’s one of the rare few people who understood my mental/emotional struggles and always gave sage advice.
She was one of those people you can imagine ruling the world.
RIP Christine. Rock those corsets in the afterlife

Christine had become like family to me. She was the kindest most sincere friend I ever had. I’m burnt out from trying to process this, it still doesn’t make any sense. She was good. She was compassionate, hardworking, smart, and talented. I could never thank her for the ways she helped me, how much she taught me, and the dark time in my life she gently supported and encouraged me through. I feel that this incredible woman, though we were parted by oceans, not only helped me to keep on living but made my life genuinely amazing. I loved her so much, I don’t know how any day is going to be normal again after this.

Her and I had been friends for a little under two years, but the instant we first talked she left a massive impression on me. She was smart, motivated, compassionate, genuine&#8230; She had more positive traits than I think is fair for one human to have. When I visited Australia a few weeks ago, I decided to stop off in Melbourne just to meet her&#8230; I think that was one of the best decisions I&#8217;ve made. I had one of the most fun weeks of my life to date, and I will constantly cherish all of the time I had with her, both online and in person. Her death has left a gaping hole in me that I would never of known existed had I not been so fortunate as to meet her. It&#8217;s selfish to think of all of the stuff she did for me as part of why I will miss her, but it&#8217;s impossible for me to not remember how she helped talk me out of one of the darkest places I&#8217;ve been, and helped convince me to go on medication for my depression. I&#8217;ve no doubt that she saved my life, and not only that, but made it a better life to live. Thank you so much Christine for allowing me to be a part of your world. You will be missed.

My new Lovely Rat’s underbust arrived this morning!

-The colour is COMPLETELY washed out by this webcam, but I’m getting my lovely photographer friend to take some proper photos tonight :)

-IT’S SO CUTE

-That’s not my ribcage poppig out over the top (though it looks like it is), that’s the combination of bra-underwire-pushing-squishy-fat-down versus gorgeous-corset-pushing-squishy-fat-up creating a roll of fluff in the middle, something that will probably happen less as I season this corset, but which I’m going to solve anyway by always wearing clothes underneath and longline bras which will take no nonsense from my inch-deep rib squidge, compressing it down into a nice smooth line.

-DID I MENTION IT WAS CUTE? I want to wear this over cute bright dresses with full skirts and cute black dresses for a pop of colour that’s the focus of the entire outfit and with suit jackets and maybe that leather chest harness for the sweet vs S&M aesthetic and just everywhere and look after it at all times!

-I may change the ribbon to a longer pale-dusky-pink one to match the silk a little more and give myself more space when I put it on, but the pastel pink is extremely cute!

:D <3

OH MY GOD IT’S SO CUTE I’M GONNA DIE

and it’s such a wonderful shape

Lovely rats is quickly becoming one of my favorite corsetieres

I’m so glad it arrived and that’s it’s with an owner that will take good care of it!
I would definitely reccomend wearing longline or Demi bras with it, it just smooths out that whole top line.
It looks adorable on you, can’t wait to see more!

AAHHH ADORABLE!

Okay, but I also sleep on my stomach- so cheque and mate.

smoke-and-somnolence said: Hello beautiful Penny! I was wondering if you could make another video about your boobs, one more for your demographic of fans who want to know a bit more about the process itself, perhaps like me because they wish to augment the size of their own bust. The surgery pain levels for you, healing, scarring, which method of insertion you opted for, under or over the muscle, silicone or saline, etc etc. IF you want to even answer such personal questions, of course! I really hope I don't come off rude

ACTUALLY those sorts of questions are in my opinion, not personal at all! 
I’ve been meaning to make a video like this for a long while, it shall be done over the next little while. I just got back from vacation, so I have A LOT OF STUFF TO CATCH UP ON, but I promise you, it’s on my list. Thanks for reminding me.

fairysassy said: I was browsing your tumblr and you mentioned cosplay; I think you'd be gorgeous if you cosplayed from Lulu (final fantasy) or Zelda ~ just an idea. I wish I was as pretty as you >~< 💜

You are as pretty as me- and I don’t mean that in a lovey dovey “Everyone is beautiful” sort of way, I mean that in a “Dude, diversity is the sole reason we’re all so fucking gorgeous, I promise someone finds you just as attractive as you find me.” sort of way. 

I’d happily do both of those cosplays. XD But they aren’t at the top of my list- still… I am now going to focus a lot on cosplays. Thanks for the message. XD
