Caity Lynn, check out Dark Garden!
Of course, in the Golden Era, they really weren't wearing corsets - they went out in the 20s. But we don't care - as long as it gives you the shape you want, it is no one's business what undies you wear!
If you're going to spend good money on a corset - get one that is custom fitted to your measurements. There are a lot of bespoke corsetieres over on Etsy if you browse around. I can't recommend one in particular, as I usually make my own, but check out their feedback for reviews.Originally Posted by Caity Lynn
Oh, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars.
B: I'm looking for a reasonably priced one. Under 200 dollars. That is a real
boned tough corset. None of this Victoria's Secret stretchy crap.
Preferably not hook and eye in the front because I'm afraid they'll
pop. Also preferably a maker that you've had experience with. I'm
I think you might have trouble finding a decent, well-made corset for under $200. I have made my own corsets and they generally cost at least $100 in materials alone.

What style is more commonly wore? Underbust, waist cinchers, or overbust?

I bought two underbust corsets from this site: www.timeless-trends.com
I love them so much. He's very reasonably priced. I like the under bust style because it allows you to wear your bra of choice with it. Mine are for outerwear but there are styles available in neutrals for shapewear purposes.
Bought this really fab corset at Orchard Corset (on Orchard Street in NYC). Very inexpensive ($59) for a steel boned corset. I loved going into the store - a real blast from the past. To fit me, the women lightly felt my bust, hip, and waist, and yelled my size to her husband. Then we went behind the curtain and she laced me into it!! So fun! I need to go back because I ended up ordering one from the warehouse so it wasn't fitted right to my body. She's a real pro!

That's stunning Miss Bella! Even more stunning is the price
I love husband and wife outfits like that. Ambiance always adds to a retail experience.

They had special riding corsets that were shorter in length and more flexible than most Victorian corsets for riding. A lot of women would "pick" at their dinner. It wasn't ladylike to appear hungry... meant you weren't as well off as you appeared to be- although a lot ordered something from the kitchen later in the evening after they retired to their rooms.
Lenore, my husband did the same thing to my waist cincher Got new garter clips but they're not as nice as the ones it came with.
