My wife has decided she loves corsets. I've bought her two in the last couple years and it wasn't until the last few weeks that she's really started to use them (I think prior to that she saw them more as bedroom wear, not as day to day lingerie.)
Anyways I'd like to get her a few more... prefereably something that is made for higher use than a costume or bedroom-lingerie type corset.
What should I look for? And where can I look without finding corsets that are $400+ in cost?
One word: FREDERICK'S.
If she is really interested in using a corset as a regular undergarment, Frederick's offers a nice variety of items that aren't too frilly (unless you want them to be) and are quite functional. I used one when I was a bridesmaid at a wedding; the dresses ran small and I did not find out in time to lose 10 lb.
The model I ordered was Frederick's Ultimate Satin Corset, for $68.
Frederick's front page banner has an entire corset drop-down section that you can peruse at your leisure. I am sure you will find a few styles that she will enjoy.
