@ToriFan13 I have a Frederick's corset that I absolutely love. I got it on sale so the price was good, and I feel like for moderate use it is good quality. I bought my corset after having hand sewn about 4 other corsets for costumes for a show I was working on. I would say the quality of the Frederick's corset is similar to my hand made ones (not to overstate my skills, but I am a fairly good seamstress) and the material was a much higher quality. The only part that worries me are the grommets for the lacing. It looks strong, but if I were making my own for regular use I would reinforce them more than would probably ever be necessary. I would therefore recommend the Frederick's corsets for a fun costume that will still hold you in, specifically if you are heavier or have large breasts (both of which are my care), and will look very beautiful, though may not be as long lasting as a custom or more expensive corset. The bonning is also not super stiff as may be desired, but it does do the job. As for sizing I ordered one size above my usual bra band size just because I am on the heavy side, the fit was great for loose or tight wear on myself, and was fairly decent on some girls smaller than myself. Hope that helps anyone looking at Frederick's! Thank you for the awesome article!
