German corset museum

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:


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.

Samantha Wilson

Samantha Wilson is a young woman living in Georgia, USA. A few years ago, she was not happy with her figure and size and started to eat differently. She saw another woman wearing a corset, got interested, and began wearing one, and she soon started to tight lace, and even do rib training. Among her reasons to wear corsets is that they provide back support, she feels confident and likes the way she looks. One of her methods to adjust her weight is to do intermittent fastening, where she doesn´t eat for a certain amount of time. Because of her diet, and with the help of corsets, she has achieved a significant weight loss.

She went from 22 inches to 16 inches in 10 months and she is pursuing to be able to wear 15-inch corsets. Like many other persons wearing corsets, she gets unsolicited criticism and rude comments, which she usually ignores.
