I just stumbled across your pictures and had to compliment
you on how beautiful you are. Is it possible to get a
picture of you naked?
Thanks for taking time to write. No, I do not pose naked.
Congrats to you on your magnificent waist & figure. I'm also
wondering if you have any Irish relatives as Carthy is most
likely an Irish name.
Thanks for taking time to write me. I do not have any Irish
heritage and would love to visit your country some time. We
have been to England any times and have many friends there
but have yet to go to Ireland, Scotland or Wales. As an
incidental fact, my father went to Medical School at the
University of Edinborough.
Just wanted to ask you about a fitting question for my new
corset. I can't seem to tightlace it flat and was wondering
if I am doing something wrong. I can get it to meet side to
side at the tops and bottoms but the center 3-4 inches seem
to gape in a small oval. Should I leave the entire corset
open parallel evenly until I can get all the sides to meet
The open space is only about a 1/2 inch mid-back, but I
cannot seem to close it together yet.
I would try leaving the corset open evenly until you can
lace it down. See if that helps.
You are truly an inspiration. I have recently started tight
lacing, and was wondering if you could help. I bought a
corset and it fits me perfectly, but I have a sensitive
nerve in my back. I'm at the
point to where I can lace the
corset nearly all the way closed. However the nerve causes
the right side of my chest to burn. The only way to
alleviate it is to have about a three inch gap in the the
back about three or four inches above my floating ribs. Any
advice on what to do? I'm in the Texas/New Mexico border
area so there are no corsetiers within a 400 mile radius.
I would try lacing it tightly for a short time and then
releasing it to a tolerble level--perhaps this will enable
you to desensitize the spot. Keep me advised.
Hope you are enjoying this beautiful spring we've been
blessed with in New England.
I wanted to first thank you and congratulate you for your
display of tightlacing in a positive and beautiful manner.
The second reason I write is for my girlfriend who
tightlaces everyday. We live in New York City, and as you
can imagine, and I'm sure you can attest to this yourself in
Connecticut, the summers are miserable for anyone, to say
the least for a girl who wraps a thick, reinforced garment
around her waist. We took the liberty to purchase a Summer
Corset from Wasp Creations last year, and even then, she
found that there were days that she couldn't bare it. She
wears a lycra corset liner to protect her skin and the
corset and finds that it traps most of her body heat (she
tried old cotton tanktops, but they bunched up, and
irritated her skin). I saw in your FAQ's that you had
suggested to someone else the use of 3M's Tegaderm
underneath the corset. I have not been able to locate this
product in any size larger than 4"X4" patches, and even
then, a box of 8 is outrageously expensive if we were to use
these to cover her midsection all summer long. I was
wondering if this was the manner you recommended Tegaderm,
or if there was some other way I'm missing.
On a general level, do you have any pointers I can share
with my girl for how to make the Summer more manageable
I appreciate any time you put to this query and thank you in
Thanks for your note.
Re your girlfriend's problem, I don't think a tegaderm would
be a good solution in a heat situation. The best solution in
this case would be frequent showers and liberal dusting with
cornstarch baby powder. If it is too hot and steamy I would
leave the corset off unless I could be in air conditioning.
Keep me advised.
