Sylphide: Leather Corset 19"

Leather is an excellent material for corsets because it's robust and stiff. Therefore it's especially important to have a made-to-measure corset, otherwise you probably won't be happy with it. Leather, however, does not breathe as well as cotton or satin; therefore it may not be as comfortable to wear in hot weather.

At first sight, leather corsets don't match with my general attitude, since they can be found in the context of fetish clothing. But I think that the point is not only the material, but also the cut and the rest of the outfit.

The first leather corset shown here was made by Albert (albertcst@hotmail.com) and lent to me. It was not especially designed or made for me but nevertheless it fitted very well. You can see more corsets from Albert here.
