But on a less scary note... YAY! I've got mail! ;)
in other words... LJ's got the mail issue in control. Woot. :)
Wasping is addictive, just like tattoos and body piercing.
If I had the money, I'd probably end up wasping soon enough... there is something so comforting about the restrictive corsets.. they pinch, they pull, the grind.. but I still love them so much!
There is this wonderful feeling you get when you get full laced into a steel corset... you feel extra sexy, extra sultry, extra beautiful. Its uncomfortable.. but its ok, ya know?
And then after a few hours of being so confined, and tightened and restricted.. you unlace and un button and your body gasps in release.. and its just as sexy feeling, just as wonderful feeling as when you put the corset ON.. only in reverse.
Its very weird.. but awesome. Hehe
However, if you're a wasp, you don't ever remove your corset, except for maybe an hour a day for showering and hygiene. Most women will have 4 or 5 "everyday" corsets, whuch cost upwards of $500-$1200 a piece, made from heavy canvas and steel. These are the ones they sleep in and wear under their regular clothes.. and then they'll have dress up ones (like the one above) which are often even more pricey.. and they'll rarely stay out of their corsets for more than 5 hours a week for decades.. slowly moving down sizes and cinching their waist to get that wasp look...
That, is probably a bit much for me. But still, interesting.
You have given me a total education on this. I knew nothing of this before you just told me! Wow. I wish I had the kind of money to do a little binding.. just enough to get a super defined waist and then quit.
The thing is, it has permanent upkeep. To get that super defined waist/hip ratio.. you have to wasp for at least a year or two.. and by then, you dont have any ab and back muscles left and without those you're in line for a bad back breaking accident.
There is a whole subculture around corseting and wasping. I did some research once because I wasnt sure whether I was enraptured or totally creeped out.. hell, I still done. hehe.
Wow. Yeah, there's no way I'd be able to do that.
