Thanks! I have one which I made, for like $75 of materials, which also doesn't fit, stupid weight loss. But the Victorian costumes I made to fit over those corsets fit without corseting now, so yay? maybe?
It's from Dark Garden. I think that model (mine's actually a cross between the Sweetheart Victorian and the Aziza) runs upwards of $1000 now. Which is why I'm always skeptical of the online corset shops that claim to sell custom corsets for $150. I can't buy off-the-rack, because I'm short-waisted (my hip to waist rise is 4") and hourglass-shaped (there's a 10" increase over those 4"), so it's either make it myself or pay someone else a Lot Of Money. Good thing I know how to sew ;)
I should ask my friend who does custom corsetry if there's any way to save my pretty corset without spending another $600 altering it...
