Don't I know it! Size aside, my corset shape is misery for my daughter and hers for me. I'd want many sizes of many shapes and styles. Since I'm not exclusively a corsetmaker, it'll most likely remain a dream.

So I have an interesting quandary that perhaps you ladies can help with. I have a client who I am actually worried about making a corset for. She has a concave sternum, and I am worried about putting it under any strain. I have made her one dress already, but I was definitely unhappy with how lumpy the bust was. I have thought about making her basically a waist cincher at least to keep the waistbands from eating her, and adding padding in the bust to give the illusion of having more to hopefully hide the lumpy-ness. Has anyone else ever encountered this? My client is not over large, 36, 30, 40, but I believe she is in her early 60's.

I would love some suggestions.

Thanks! :)

Couldn't help noticing this thread but haven't read all raplies, but how about a boned bodice? But on the other hand that doesn't solve much either. :roll:
