Pretty sure I was born in the wrong era, look how stylish those ladies are. Ah dreaming of such a life.
I bought a size 30 (XS) which I'm pretty sure is around a 6/8. I was very un-certain about the sizes, but this is literally just about the perfect fit. It was quite a shock when I did up all the hooks, because it's such a tight fit, you do feel restricted as you would in a proper old fashioned corset. Nevertheless I am really looking forward to getting steps closer to a smaller waist. (This is my personal goal, I don't want anyone to think I encourage small waists as the only good figure look because it is not, it is only one of many and one that I favour).
