Proper corset lacing making you loopy? Mystified by modesty panels? Read, watch and learn from the internet’s most prolific corset bloggers so you can get tight with tight lacing.


Lucy’s corsetry

The go-to corset aficionado and recommended by everyone from The Lingerie Addict to Orchid Corsetry, Lucy’s love and knowledge of corsets spans years, having first become interested in corsets from a very young age. “When I was 6, I came across the movie Gone with the Wind. I couldn’t stop staring at the costumes; the ladies all looked like dolls come to life, which – to any young girl – was a dream come true.” Lucy then made her first ‘real’ corset at 18 and began to wear corsets on a regular basis throughout university as she studied Biochemistry. Her passion for both science and corsetry is reflective in her writing and YouTube channel, as many of her posts focus on the health benefits of corsetry – it’s not all just about pretty lace and tiny waists!

As the world’s largest blog dedicated to the fashion of intimate apparel, it’s hard to believe that The Lingerie Addict started out as a place for Cora Harrington just to sound off about one of her great passions. “For me, the appeal of lingerie is in allowing people to express their identity, particularly when that identity may be unavailable, inaccessible, or otherwise impossible in their outerwear or day-to-day life.” Quoted as a lingerie expert by major news outlets and with her blog hitting 750,000 views a month, Cora blogs about corsets and lingerie in a way that makes it accessible to people of all shapes, sizes, budgets and genders.
