REDUCED PRICE CORSETS

I love nothing better than a sale and my favourite burlesque based website, www.truecorset.co.uk, has reduced some of their gorgeous over the bust corsets in price.
My favourite pink corset, which I’ve had my eye on for ages, has been reduced to £47.00, due to marks on the bust hooks, which lets face it, can be easily remedied by a quick trip to dry cleaner. Other corsets in the sale are this Ivory Ella Over the Bust Corset, in sizes UK 24-36″, UK 22-34″ and UK 22-23″. These are all reduced due to small marks on the inside of the corsets, which when worn can not be seen. Price around £45, reduced from over £80, you can’t argue a small mark is worth missing out on one of these gorgeous steel boned curve creators.

CHRISTIAN DIORS 2010 CORSET

How gorgeous does actress Mia Wasikowska look in this Christian Dior polka dot mesh and satin corset from the 2010 catwalk collection? This over the bust corset captures the ladylike, ultra feminine trend that is so present right now. The trend for underwear as outerwear has been spotted all over the high street with lace camisoles worn with jeans and flashes of brightly coloured bras are a big trend for night wear. I think this type of corset should be teamed with a fifties style full skirt and towering heels to capture that womanly trend. If your looking for an equivilant of this polka dot corset then why not try this Dita corset in black with white spots. Christian Dior eat your stylish heart out!

RIHANNA – QUEEN OF THE CORSET

Pop princess, Rihanna is known now more for her outrageous style than for her music. Not to say that she isn’t a credited artist, its just in recent years it has been her style that has kept her in papers and in with the fashion pack.

Designers are queuing to dress the singer, with favourites been Dolce and Gabbana and Jeremy Scott. If there were a queen of the corset then Rihanna would take that crown, whether that is stage outfits or walking through New York in a corset and ripped jeans.

Rihanna is one of the hottest artist of the moment and her style is something that can be easily replicated with the help of True corset. Why not try this Dita corset in Pink Duchess Satin teamed with distressed denim? Or even this Curvy Black Satin Over The Bust corset, worn with super high heels and uber trendy wet look leggings.

INTERVIEW WITH THE GLAMAZONS

Hello Glamazons! And thank you for this fabulous opportunity! I don’t normally have the privilege of being around celebrities, let alone burlesque ones!

I am a great fan of burlesque, from the gorgeous outfits to its whole sex appeal! Where did you get the inspiration from? Why Burlesque?

[MERYL] I have always loved singing and dancing and even played the part of ‘Mazeppa” (a stripper) in the musical “Gypsy” at the age of 12! In 1997 I was introduced to the burlesque scene after being cast in a musical called “Sin” that was performed in the east village. I had did a striptease act in the show. It was very liberating and empowering to show my curvaceous figure on stage every night! I got great feedback from audience members who thought it was refreshing to see a “real” woman stripping on stage in a tasteful way. I continued to perform song and dance routines at cabaret clubs and incorporated the burlesque aspect. I loved the glamour, glitter, sequins ruffles and, of course, corsets!

And how did the band form, have you always been friends?

[MERYL] I started to perform a one woman show and continued to be a featured act in variety shows. I was inspired by groups like “The Pontani Sisters” and “The Wau-Wau Sisters” and wanted to be part of a group. I imagined performing on stage with other full figured women, like myself. And that’s how The Glamazons started! I auditioned girls and formed the group. As the members of The Glamazons have changed through the years, the group has morphed into something different. We don’t strip anymore, but our act is infused with the tease of burlesque.

[SANDY] I joined The Glamazons back in 2003 when the group was revamping. Some girls left to get married or to go back to school. So Meryl took me under her wing and showed me the world of Burlesque. This is when I truly learned to love my body and I grew to love myself more than I ever thought possible. As the rest of the group formed, we created a bond that no one can break. We love each other like sisters and fight like sisters. Haha!

[LAURA] I joined the Glamazons in 2005 as more of a pop style performer/addition to the group. I was just singing and modeling at the time and met the girls on a photo-shoot for a book called “Big Girl Knits.” I never pranced around in my undies or a corset before, so my first performance was so invigorating. There’s no better way to get over stage-fright than singing and dancing in ruffle panties! The whole time I was thinking “well… I better perform my heart out, because my bum is all the way out!”

What made you decide to go on America’s Got Talent?

[LAURA] We were all a little skeptical about doing “America’s Got Talent” because we didn’t want to be made fun of for our size. When we walked on stage, the audience started to laugh, but then we sang, and the crowd stood up immediately cheering us on. The judges loved us. I was so surprised. But, we do know how to rock the house and have fun doing it, so I’m glad everyone else thought so too.

Who was your favorite judge?

[SANDY] My favorite judge was Piers Morgan. This guy was the toughest and most critical judge on the show and he loved The Glamazons. He has a thing for curvy women and he thought we were truly talented, so it felt really good to have him in our corner. All of the judges loved us and they were really inspired by us. I think they were all pushing for our success.

[LAURA] I really loved them all but Sharon Osborne was definitely my favorite. She was like mom: honest and loving all at once.

[MERYL] I loved them all! But I grew up watching David Hasselhoff on television and it was so surreal to perform for him. He has a special place in my heart J

TREND OF THE WEEK – NUDE

After this year’s Oscars and Fashion month all rolled into one, one trend stood out amongst all others. That was the colour nude. It was seen on at least three of the hottest celebrities this weekend, including Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz and Miley Cyrus.

If a couture gown is out of your price range, which is definitely is mine, why not start from the base of any outfit and buy some nude lingerie. Nude is always flattering underneath clothing, especially with sheer tops and dresses.

As any true pin up girl will know the best way to create killer curves is to wear a steel-boned over bust corset, like this gorgeous creation. This Ivory Satin Ella corset would look fabulous with a pair of leg lengthening heels and a smile.

At True Corset they pride themselves on being on hand for the hottest trends from the catwalk and whilst the colour is nude is in, then the Ella corset will be in hot stock.

SUCK ME IN

I have a slight confessions girls, I had all good intentions to get my sorry ass to the gym and to stop eating my daily chocolate bar…but it somehow it didnt happen and now the scales are screaming at me to get off! So I thought what better time to shop for some body sculpting underwear. I found this underbust gridle in black from True Corset and think this look is almost good enough to wear alone without any clothes on top! 🙂 Think my local builders would approve of my outfit choice though.

This thing I like about this girdle is that I can wear my point bra without anything getting in the way and black, I think, can look the chicest of all colours.

NAOMI LADE BARE…

naomi-catwalk

When wearing this little it takes a killer body and a large heap of conviction. Naomi took the Paris Fashion Week this year for Russian designer Igor Chapurin, modelling this sheer corset with magnificant head piece, teamed with a teeny tiny beige skirt.

If I had a body like Naomi then I would not only strut like this down the catwalk, I’d pick myself up and strut down the street. Who cares about the bemuzed looks I may get.

I can image this piece been worn by style cameleon Lady GaGa or Gwen Staffani, maybe teamed with a nude camisole to make it more accessible to wear through the day.

“I bought a few items at his store in Moscow and he asked me if I would walk in his show,” offered Campbell, who lives part-time in the Russian capital. “It’s such a vibrant city. There is a lot going on there right now in design.”

I cant really imagine the Russains walking round in this clobber taking into consideration the mighty cold winters they have.
