An Aquatic Experience

Enchantment Under the Sea

I spent an afternoon at the aquarium and was able to get close to the most beautiful animals in the sea. With habitats featuring bluefish, loggerhead sea turtles, sand tiger sharks, river otters, jellyfish and cownose rays just to name a few; I explored the beauty of underwater worlds that house thousands of colorful fish and exotic marine animals. I even got to feel the sensation of a ray glide below my fingertips in the Ray Touch Pool.

,,I found my corset to be incredibly comfortable after wearing it for about 7 hours!

Today I am wearing my one-of-a-kind, mermaid inspired corset featuring a seashell sequin fabric in vibrant ocean hues and trimmed with the cutest seashell-shaped appliqués. As you can “sea” my corset has very minimal seam lines and is not constructed like most of my other corsets. As I started sewing with this sparkly paillette fabric I wanted the sequins to capture your eye from any and every angle. I decided to sew the boning, boning channels, waist-tape, underbusk and horsehair into the lining of this corset rather than in the sequin fabric. My “reverse” idea still offers all of the same benefits my other corsets have and I found my corset to be incredibly comfortable after wearing it for about 7 hours that day.

When the temperatures dropped later in the day I paired my corset with a moto jacket and loved how it gave me a street-chic, tough girl-glam sense of style. I’ll definitely be styling this corset again in the summer with a cute skirt and wedges.

Do you currently own a corset and would like help styling it? Or perhaps you’re ready for a custom handmade corset of your own. Let’s get started! I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Please comment below.
