Corset Wearing

Hobbies come and go but one consistent activity in my life has been sewing.  Long gone are the days of mandatory home economics class for girls and wood shop for boys.  Yes I am that old.  I remembering sewing a blouse in home ec which of course, didn’t fit.  My mom had taught me how to sew long before that class though and made most of my childhood clothes.  I still remember my first store bought dress from Sears .. blue with ruffles!  Therefore sewing is not just a hobby but a connection to my mother and also my grandmother.

My first big purchase during my teenage years was a Singer sewing machine with my saved earnings from working at McDonalds, the first in our area.  I had that sewing machine for a very long time and now I am on my 3rd sewing machine.  I typically sew Halloween costumes and things for the house since whenever I try to sew clothing, it never fits.  I just do not know how to fit the pattern to my old, misshapen body.  Despite past clothing failures,  a few years ago, I decided to make a corset.  I saw this project as the ultimate in sewing challenges and knew less about corset making than I did kink when I embarked on that adventure but lack of knowledge never stopped me in the past and there are no corset police.  So I read information from books and the internet and discovered very helpful videos on Youtube and after a year of working it out in my mind, I made my corset.  I have to say it was a moment of triumph for me since it fits.

Making a corset is one thing, however wearing it is a totally different experience.  I seldom wear it since it confuses me mentally and restricts my breathing.  Prior to making this corset, I had two scenarios in my head when I thought of corsets.  First, Victorian ladies sipping tea within the confines of rigid social rules came to mind.  High protocol is is such a turn on to me!  I can’t contain myself when that ruler is used to measure the formal table setting on Downton Abbey.  Weird but true.  Secondly, I thought of a woman clad in a black, leather corset slapping a whip into the palm of her hand sporting a fun, evil intentional smile.  In my vanilla days, this is the image of kink that was lodged firmly in my mind not the reality of the diversity within the community.  But what do I think now while I wear my corset with my broadened world beyond the kitchen?

There is no place in my life for the wearing of a corset.  There are some people that wear  a corset as a means for weight control, some enjoy wearing it, some find it kinky and can wear it without subsequent interrogation by family members … there probably is a multitude of unique reasons for wearing a corset.  I know I enjoy the tightness around my ribs and the breathing difficulty.   I am reminded of Sir and ropes and I can’t quite concentrate enough to do anything.  However my wearing of a corset is not a fetish for me as it is with some people but rather a reminder of a set of kinky activities that I enjoy.  However my mindset does adapt to the strictness of the stays and I am forced to carry myself differently and with more formality.  No slouching allowed!  Sadly, there is no role in my life that calls for wearing a corset except for Sir telling me to wear it.  A corset is simply objectified transference and although I wish I could identify a role that calls for the uniform of a corset, so far, I haven’t found it.

I want to make another corset some day because I loved the difficulty and challenge of engineering the fabric to my measurements.  If I had to pick my #1 need in life, it is being challenged and tackling another corset excites me more than owning the final product.  And this follows from what I have learned about myself .. I would much rather do something that I perceive as difficult than simply order a corset from a catalog and own it as fast as UPS could get it to me.

    This slave understands. she has been eagerly awaiting her first corset for years. Finally Master allowed her one and, as things always do… life called. Masyer and this slave are currently doing construction work in the everglades. Hot and gross!
