Jessi has tightlaced since 2012 but not constantly. She is presumable from Maryland and has a natural, i.e. uncorsetted waist size of 26”. In 2020, she trained to reduce her 20” corsetted waist to 16”. She has achieved the 16”, and now her dream waist is 13”.

sadisticnitemare started wearing corsets from Orchard Corset like a CS-201 Waspie Underbust Mesh Corset, CS-301  Modern Curve Waspie or CS-411 Standard Underbust Cotton Corset, and lately is wearing a Cupped Gemini Corset from Timeless Trends.

She has accounts on social media, e.g. Twitter and Instagram –

The Boudoir Key

Elizabeth-Iryna is a corset maker who takes commissions for made-to-measure corsets and produces ready-made ones in various Victorian and Edwardian styles. Like other corset makers, she provides online ordering, and for made-to-measure corsets, the client must send their measurements, type of fabric and further details. She also offers a mock-up service, which increases delivery time and cost.

In addition to corsets, The Boudoir Key also sells related garments and Corset Patterns.

In 2022, she fled to Poland due to the situation in Ukraine. Unfortunately, Etsy prevents her from changing the location, but she is living in and shipping from Poland.

Michelle Ng

Michelle Ng is a bilingual writer and English writing coach based in Hong Kong. She is enthusiastic about vintage hair and cheongsam and is interested in using corsets to train her already tiny waist. She writes about culture and politics using the name Wu Ruoqi (吳若琦) and is currently studying for a university degree.

She has been waist training since August 2016 and mentions that her lower belly seems to protrude and thinks it is because her lower rib cage and her waist have become smaller by the waist training. Before corseting, her uncorsetted waist was 22 inches, and by 2018 it had shrunk to 21 inches. She tightened the corset slowly, didn’t feel any pain, and “taught” her ribs to get used to being compressed. She is now used to the sensation and finds it mildly pleasurable and comfortably wears 20” corsets – measured OVER the corset – which means that the inside measurement is about 18 inches.
