The stars must be aligned because Scoundrelle’s Keep, a corsetiere I just mentioned in the post before this one, is having a runway sale. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, a runway sale is when a designer discounts items which have been previously worn on photo shoots or in fashion shows. Most times, these heavily discounted items are like new, and it’s a great deal if you’ve been admiring a […]

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links. I’m loathe to call any lingerie impractical. After all, lingerie is all about fantasy and titillation and excitement, necessary things all, but certainly not practical.

Starkers! Corsetry has a red silk underbust corset with matching top and bustle skirt selling on e-bay right now.

The top, corset, and bustle skirt would fit a size 6-8 with the corset itself measuring (fully closed, I think) 30-25.5-33″. Better hurry though…the listing […]
