An often overlooked form of body modification

Wow, it would appear as if corsetry hasn’t been featured on Modblog since WAY back in 2006! I bet a lot of current readers don’t even realize the semi-permanent and permanent changes to one’s body that can be created using something that is now often considered just a fashion accessory. These pictures were in the November 2009, BME  corsetry & binding galleries and I am quite pleased to be able to feature them now.

  1. I am so jealous! One day my waist will be this small.

    It’s sad to see that I’m not the only one who has to lace themself up though. :P

  4. I’ve always wondered what it looks like without the corset.
    Never found any pictures of it though.
    At least not from a long term corset wearer.

  5. Not everyone can view the photo of him without a corset on.
    Anyway… it’s not very drastic. He looks quite normal in his photos without a corset.
    I’m sure no one would ever know.

  6. I wonder how much damage he is doing to his organs and such. Wonder what the permanent effects are from wearing corsets for extended periods of time.

  7. MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR!!!

    i start tightlacing again within the next few weeks/whenever i can pick my new corset up. and this is GREAT inspiraion and motivation.

    please sir, can we have some more?

  8. Looks Good!

    For those interested and for more info on the medical aspect of corsetry might I direct you here http://www.staylace.com/

    Ooodles of articles, including ones written by a doctor. Also some galleries, and I’m sure there are uncorseted photos of tightlacers somewhere in there.

  9. Always great to see featured photos of another guy in a corset – but you’ve made me feel VERY guilty for getting out of the habit of wearing mine.

  10. I love seeing tight lacing.
    It’s gorgeous and takes a long time to get down to a waist that small.

  11. This, to me is just beautiful.
    Unfortunately, the bme encylopaedia entry that is linked to this really holds no useful information!
    Thanks for the extra link, please help update the bme wiki!

  12. I prefer a much more subtle corseting. He’s got great determination, but I just don’t like it.

  13. I used to be a tightlacer before I had to stop for health reasons – a disease I have, not related to corsetry! I sure miss those days. Props to Fish for the impressive reduction, it’s not easy on men! Unfortunately he is in the very bad habit of wrapping his extra laces around the corset, which destroys the fabric over time. Not a big deal on a simple piece like this, but if you do that with brocade or some nice fabric, it will ruin it. Good for him for wearing a liner though! So essential for tightlacing.

  14. Wow, Im totally jealous! He has an amazing waistline! I’ve been trying to train mine, but not much luck so far as my job requires me to do a lot of bending, lifting and cannot wear my nice corsets.
