The Morticia Corset | What Katie Did

Corsets have been around for hundreds of years and despite women’s lingerie and foundation garments changing hugely in that time, corsets still remain on the fringes. In the last year or two there’s been a influx of the awful ‘waist-trainers’ which boast permanent waist reduction but in reality, […]
