Corset Question

docorion and I finally sat down yesterday to look at corsets. We are undecided.

Femme Fatale or Long-Line Victorian?

He says that the Femme Fatale will emphasize the breasts more, and the Victorian (shown with lace on the bottom, which I wouldn't get), the waist. I'm all about the waist, particularly because I don't want to be one of those girls running around at cons with boob overspillage. Some people like that look - I'm not one of them. I know some of you *have* Gallery Serpentine corsets - is the Femme Fatale prone to that? Because I like the way the Victorian emphasizes the waist and hips, but docorion says it'll completely flatten the chest, and I don't want that either.

I just wish I could try these on. Grr.

As for color - definitely green, either velveteen or brocade. I was thinking brocade, but he says he's seen velveteen corsets and highly recommends 'em. 'Twould make me pettable. I am all about being pettable.

But yes. Just wish I could try these on. Grr.


Opinions from the peanut gallery? Opinions from those who own corsets particularly solicited.

EDIT: There's a Long-Line Femme Fatale, too. I think I'd get straps, though, as seen on the regular Femme Fatale.

Just so hard to imagine how these would look on me. *sigh* Internet shopping...
