When Emma asked ‘who would like to try a corset on?’, I jumped right to it. It’s something which I have never worn before but have been fascinated with them. There’s something very romantic about these things which have been known to make the wearer pass out if tied too tightly! After being tightened up into a corset, I fully believe that this could happen!
Why wear a corset?
Corsets are divine. They give you a smaller waistline and a flat tummy. Corsets enhance busts by giving them an incredible uplift. Corsets are a popular choice of dress with Burlesque performers of recent past times. Brides are also turning to a corset to give them their desired look for their wedding day. This is great for those who aren’t interested in slimming down for the big day!
Bespoke corsetry in Melbourne
At Emma’s Corsetry, she offers a range of ready made and made-to-measure corsets. Emma’s made-to-measure corsets are gaining popularity so there is a waiting list if you are thinking about getting one. Prices start in the hundreds for these high quality ready made corsets (made from silk and metal boning) and can go into the thousands for those extra special handmade ones laden with pearls or crystals. Something to put on the wish list.
The visit to Emma’s Corsetry was part of the Vintage Walk Melbourne.
