I’m all alone in the corset shop today! I’ve had a bunch of fittings so I’m happy. I don’t mind being alone as long as I’m busy. I’ve had a few brides, but mostly crossdressers. They always seem to come on fridays. (I sometimes get emails about this, I use whatever term my client uses to adress themselves. I do not use “crossdresser” as an umbrella statment. I just so happened to have people in who identified as such.) All of then have been lovely, and I’m really happy with their fit. We really are a classic corset shop, in that almost half of our stock is in boxes, and fit the old fashion way. You come in, tell me what your need your garment to do, I take a measurment, and come back with what I think will work. When I first started I was really overwhelmed. My boss was so fast, sweeping across 100s of boxes, to pull out the right girdle. If took her seconds! I’m getting pretty fast, but not even close to my boss.
