This is a single fantastic moment in time which you will always remember. No feminine garments impose themselves on a girl more decisively than tight-laced corsets. And for many crossdressers the prospect of wearing a fabulous satin underbust corset is a temptation which cannot be resisted. Especially when JJ has offered to lace you in during your dressing service appointment. And now you have succumbed to that temptation. Your resistance has melted, utterly. You are standing before a full length mirror, wearing a silk and lace bra with matching panties and hold-up stockings with a beautiful lace welt. Your make-up, applied with the utmost professional flair by JJ, makes you feel so wonderful. Never before have you worn tight-lacing corsets. Today will be like no other day.
You take the satin underbust corset in your hands, feeling the lustrous material, knowing that soon you will be locked in its embrace. Trembling a little with excitement, your fingers trace the lines of the steel bones. The laces at the back are loose, allowing you to wrap the corset around your waist. There are five ‘clasps’ at the front along the rigid central busk: they fasten easily but as you do so you are in marvelous awe of the commanding presence of each part of the design: laces, boning, busk and satin panels.
JJ now starts the joyful task of lacing you into your perfect corset. An adjustment here to the upper part of the laces, then to the lower. Then with easy practised movements she begins to pull the laces. As she pulls them outwards, your waist is drawn inwards. Little by little the embrace of the corset around your waist becomes tighter, and tighter. More adjustments to the upper and lower laces, ensuring a close fit around the lower ribs and upper hips. Then, with a smooth action which literally takes your breath away, JJ pulls once more on the central corset laces around your waist. You may be breathless, but you are triumphant. You feel a rush of feminine joy as you see in the mirror the hourglass figure for which you have craved. You are transfixed, unable to stop looking at the gorgeous vision returning your gaze.
And the feeling: so astonishing, so exquisitely feminine, so energising. But comfortable? No: but of course that is not the point. This is pure sensual adrenaline, the essential vivaciousness of your true femininity pulsating through your veins! Your tainted memory of that cheap elasticated basque which elsewhere you once were persuaded to try, ill-fitting and poorly made, now fades into the distance as you delight in your experience of the ‘real thing’. If one can be in love with a garment, this is definitely ‘it’!
Of course, you have spent many hours on the Internet looking at the immense range of corsets ‘out there’: and you have to admit to yourself you have become just a little confused, but delightfully so by the corsets you have seen. Not just by the new jargon which threatens to overwhelm you but by the mystique of these new words which (you have to confess) attract you: underbust corsets and overbust corsets, steel boning, the straight busks and spoon busks of corsets curving inwards on that troublesome tummy, goring to emphasize the curve from the lower part of your waist to your hips. And you are enthralled by the many different and deliciously enticing designs you have seen. So what is right for you, a mere novice in this magical new world of corsets?
Part of you wants to feel totally embraced by an overbust corset, but you have read that for the biological male physique underbust corsets are more suitable. And, unless you decide to have an overbust corset made especially for you, it would be wise to start with underbust corsets. So what do you do? The answer is easy: listen to JJ who uses only the best corsets in her crossdressing service. And the underbust corsets made by Vollers are certainly the crossdressing corsets of choice for the discerning T-girl. Or, if you desire a more extreme hourglass figure, then the vintage designs by What Katie Did may well compete for your attention.
Corsets may be worn as lingerie under clothes or over your clothes as a provocative statement of crossdressing style. There are no hard and fast rules here, except making sure that you look your very best. A good corset is designed to create a waist reduction of up to four to six inches. However, at first, it may be unwise for you to attempt anything more than a couple of inches reduction of your waist and perhaps wear the crossdressing corset for no more than an hour or two. Noting, of course, if you have any back or abdominal problems then you do need to seek expert medical advice about corsets. Excellently made corset will help you to express that woman within you with total confidence: Vollers, Fairy Goth Mother, Rawhide and What Katie Did are all reputable suppliers of corsets, each of them providing customised services.
But the King of Corsets, is celebrity corsetière Mr Pearl of Paris: he has designed ultra-feminine corsets for Dita von Teese, Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue. Perhaps one day you too will visit his boutique? Such delicious dressing dreams. Well-made corsets may be expensive but with care they will last you a lifetime. With each pull of those laces, as your waist decreases, your femininity increases. And, with JJ pulling your ‘strings’, you will be in corset heaven.
