The corset is one of my favorite items, and one of the most important to fit to the individual.
A corset which fits is comfortable to wear for long periods.
When most people think of a custom corset they think that a person who has a corset custom made is doing it because they want it made out of some exotic material. While this can be true, exotic materials are not the only reason to consider having a custom corset made.
We are all made differently. Just go to the clothing store and you will find this out. Try on jeans in your size from 5 different manufactures. What you will discover is that of the 5 pair you tried on, one will fit correctly, or at least acceptably. If you are lucky, a second pair may also fit correctly. The rest will either be too large, too small, too narrow in the hips, etc. Why? Because different manufactures have different ideas of what a person should be made like.
As we all know, our bodies simply don't conform to standards, this is why if you are going to actually spend money on a corset you really want to consider paying for one that is built to fit you perfectly. You don't want one with the cups too small or too big. Worse yet is when the boning sticks you in the hip or under the arm. When the corset is simply longer than your body is you are not likely going to grow to fit it.
A corset that doesn't fit correctly is just not fun to wear. So why spend all the money on cheap corsets that just don't fit?
