Nothing Much Here
Outside of thoughts about corsetry, it’s pretty mellow around these parts. And the only reason I’m thinking about corsetry is that I’ve started wearing one in the hopes of correcting the swayback that my daughter gave me two and a half years ago when I was pregnant with her. Yeah yeah yeah, that’s a long-ass time to realize just how swaybacked one has become, ha ha. I was aware that the angle of my hips was wonky, but because my back hurt so much less, I hadn’t really processed. So yes, I’ve got a corset working to pull my back to where it should be (and isn’t she a beaut?), adjusting my sitting position to rotate my tailbone down, and dabbling in some exercises of various sorts. It won’t make the leftover belly fat go away, but at least it might help me look less pregnant (even this far on, even when I got back into the 120s for a bit, I still looked six months gone… yuck).
Of course, irony dictates that I’m probably pregnant again (no idea on that one yet, ha ha), but at least I’ve got a plan of action to try to fix things next time! The joys of aging and spawning, the joys of all the little things you have to figure out after the fact in the fact of lots of fake-ass advice insisting that you should be pre-baby slim in weeks or months. *chuckles* And while I might not be the vainest of people, part of good mental health is not completely hating the body you’re stuck in. If you’re cool with your body, then that’s one less thing trying to destroy your sanity, yanno? Having my back feel all funny (not pained, not weak – just funny) had been nibbling on my sanity since my daughter was born, so getting to try to correct that stops that particular beast from attempting to pull me under.
So yes, gut-crunching fun… sort of! I think I’ll opt for an underbust on the next one I buy though. I’ll definitely be getting more in future; I like the back support. 😀
interesting! It is very pretty! I wonder if that would help me with my arthritis I have in my back? My physical therapist suggested I wear a girdle but I have not had any luck finding one. I’m on the plus side of things right now (thanks to lovely meds for years and being an emotional eater on top of that!). I am pretty sure I would have to find one that didn’t cover my girls also… because I’m kind of heavy chested.
It might! That one I bought for half of the listed discount price because I took advantage of the Corset of the Day sale that one of my best friends pointed out to me:
As he also pointed out – if you don’t like today’s offerings, then check back tomorrow or the next day. Though I do think this one isn’t too bad… though I would definitely prefer something a bit more heavily boned to go with this one! 🙂
