@Sungura I'm not 100% sure where you live in Michigan, but chances are if Edmonton has reliable corset dealers, your nearest city will as well. Honestly, using a combination of google and the phone is the best method for finding one - or you can ask the next person you see wearing a corset. That usu...

Re: [SAFESPACE] Woman Thread - All Things Women. Period.

I have heard okay things about http://www.timeless-trends.com/ - their corsets are steel boned and hourglass shaped (instead of rectangle), but they don't offer a wide variety of potential lengths. None of their corsets come with modesty panels either, so it's best to get one sized a little large th...

Random pocket story: So i bought this coat. It has decorative pocket flaps, but they were sewn down, and so i assumed that there were no pockets.

I don't know if you've ever researched the whole circadian rythym thing, but it could be pertinent to your interests.

I went to school with a guy who had a full beard at age 12. Seriously. He had a five o'clock shadow at noon.
And yet my 27 year old brother cannot grow a beard to save his life. Genetics are weird.
