The Miedermuseum (Corset Museum) in Heubach was founded in 1971 by the initiative of the mayor in Heubach Friedrich Schenk in collaboration with the corset producers located in the city at that time: SUSA-Werke GmbH and Triumph International. Triumph International remains operational in Heubach. The museum was located in the town hall until it was moved to the first floor of the Heubach castle in 2005.
The museum displays corsets made by the local corset companies, including woven corsets of which Heubach was a center of the manufactory in the mid-19th century.
It is supposed to be the oldest existing corset museum in Germany, if not the world.
Opening hours and other information are available on their website: https://www.heubach.de/start/freizeit_tourismus/museums+_+collections.html
lacedlilly is an occasional tightlacer from Sweden, so she doesn’t lace regularly. She is in her early thirties and got her first cheap corsets in 2014 but they didn’t do much for her figure. Later in 2016, she got her first “real” corset. Later she also started using custom-made corsets from e.g. SnowBlack Corsets.
Her cartilage is very soft and she can easily lace down to 20” even after not having worn a corset for a month. When she is wearing a corset and tight-laces she usually “stealth” it, meaning that she doesn’t show off her small waist but keeps it hidden by wearing loose hanging clothes over the corset.
