Proper Fit of a Corset- Alisha Martin from The Bad Button. Sat. 8 pm Jasmine Room @ The Galt House, Rivue Tower
There is nothing like the hug of a properly fitted corset! Contrary to popular belief, a corset can be the most comfortable piece of luxury clothing when it is made just for you. Join Alicia, custom corset maker for The Bad Button as she explains the how-to’s in properly fitting a corset.
I feel so lucky and honoured that one of our vendors (Bonus you can be fitted at Fandomfest!) has come forward to teach how to properly fit for a corset.Visit her booth to find something special for our Masquerade Ball! (or your future wedding, cosplay, or just because!) Can't make it out? Take a look at her etsy or join her facebook page.
Perhaps you've tried one on before, you can't breath and you start to develop a headache! How did people wear these for hours on end you may wonder? Clothes , especially those made during the height of corset wearing was made to fit you! That is, whatever size you happen to be, a lot of thought and design went into what was best for your shape and not the current way of sized clothing that you must somehow fit into, even dieting to do so! Nothing is more personal then a shaping garment such as a corset which when properly fitted feels like a comforting hug, support for you back, a slimming silhouette and a confidence booster, all in one!
"The Bad Button started in a museum. That is to say, the idea of the company that would become The Bad Button was born in the world of vintage textiles and museum costume collections. In the way that it is difficult to separate the painter from the painting, its difficult to distinguish where the aesthetics Alisha Martin brings to her work end, and the actual product begins.
