  1. Ok, now I'm inspired to send in pics of mine after the wedding! It was important to me to get a custom-fit corset, which is a step up from made-to-measure but requires you to actually be physically in the same place as the designer so she can put a muslin mock-up on you and pin it to fit exactly, so I picked someone close enough to me for a visit or two in person. If you're ordering one remotely and can't get it fitted in person, the most custom you can get is made-to-measure (you send the designer all your measurements and she goes from there). I'm so excited to wear mine! I used the corset info from the Lingerie Addict blog which has a huge corset information round-up to decide what kind and shape I wanted before I contacted anyone. They like Dark Garden there, too. My corset is kick-ass- it's black and sapphire blue, with pinstripe lace to give it a slight menswear wink, and I have a skirt made from the same blue silk to complete the look. My FMIL is going to be scandalized, though we've warned her I'm not wearing white 🙂

  2. I am so excited to share my experience in a few weeks about getting a corset from Dark Garden… it was such a crazy process, getting measured and fitted. They literally fitted it to my skeleton! *swoons*
