A better update, for comparison!
From left to right: no corset, day 2 of seasoning, and today (after seasoning and a couple weeks of 8-hour/day tightlacing)
My natural waist is 38”.  This is a 28” 411 from Orchard Corset.  It has about 1” gap left in the underbust and about 3” in the hips.  I could probably close it in a week or so if it weren’t for the hips. :(  So my next investment will be a petite Josephine from Isabella Corsetry!  Experts, do you think I should go for another 28”, or size up to a 30”?
I do love the shape this one gives me.  My hips just aren’t going to get any smaller, lol!

THIS IS INCREDIBLE! 
Amazing job!
I want to waist train so bad!

That looks really fucking unhealthy, to be honest. If it’s an effort to look pretty, I have to say my first reaction is pure concern for her safety, not interest in her appearance. :/

People don’t body mod so that you’ll find them attractive. We do it because WE like it, and you’re welcome to admire it or not according to your own taste. But 700+ notes suggests that I’m not alone in admiring the aesthetics. And not that my health is any of your business, but corsets are perfectly safe if you know what they’re doing and it’s been a blessing for my back, posture, and satiety. Plus if you saw the last picture without the first two I doubt you’d know I was wearing one at all :)

I can’t believe it took me so long to fall in love with scarves! They really make me feel put together.

Don’t let that image fool you. Click on the video; you won’t regret it.

(You’ll probably also shed a few tears at the end.)

AHHHHHHHHH.  So good!

See this, THIS is how adult education and illiteracy should be in real life.
People being kind, supportive, encouraging, not mocking because you took a little longer to learn something.
I’m sorry I get really emotional about people learning and education and I’m crying really hard right now because I really wish this was a commercial for a adult education network/organization that was becoming mainstream and commonplace and celebrated and not about alcohol

This is a beautiful commercial. Even though it is a commercial for alcohol, it hands down beats the usual marketing devices for such products.

this is fucking fantastic

I’M NOT CRYING YOU’RE CRYING

you know I used to be a person who did not cry at things?

NOT TRUE ANYMORE.

jeez. watch this.

This is stunning!

One of the best things I’ve seen in a long while.  Well done.

What a gorgeous ad.

It makes me want to try Bell’s and I don’t even like scotch haha.

Every time I see Elizabeth i’s signature I get absurdly happy cause I just imagine her signing her name and doing a little twirly and then pausing and then adding a few more twirlies “your majesty perhaps thats enough twirls” suggests William Cecil “perhaps Im the motherfuckin queen” suggests elizabeth and adds 6 more

Old Granny

meeplol:

Old granny never lied.

“Don’t go messing with that jar of glue, young’n! You’re gonna get your hands stuck together!” she shouted. And sure enough, in just a few minutes, Tommy had shattered the glass jar. He whimpered pitifully as he struggled to pull his hands apart. Granny just shook her head and said, “I told ‘em!”

Old granny never lied.

“Pull your hair back behind your ears, girlie! Leave your hair over your face, and you’ll go blind as a bat!” she shouted. And sure enough, a few days later, little Lizzie, unable to see anything in front of her, crashed into the bookcase. Granny just stomped her foot and muttered, “That’s what ya get for not listenin.’”

Old granny never lied.

“You keep scrunching your face up like that, and it’s gonna stay that way!” she shouted. And sure enough, within a week, little Annabelle’s face was twisted painfully in a jester’s grin. Granny rolled her eyes and frowned, “Now what did I tell ya?”

Old granny never lied. But sometimes she used needle and thread.
