This pink and white waspie from Angela Friedman is just the cutest thing I have ever owned and I want to wear it everywhere. It’s cute and saccharine and perfect- a true fairy princess corset.
I’ve never owned a corset before– even a baby one like this waspie (I like to think of it as my starter corset). I admit I was very excited and slightly nervous when I first tried it on and it was lucky Angela was there to lace it up for me. Although now I’ve taken it off and on a few times I feel very comfortable with it and I just want to wear it all the time.
I love the way it cinches my waist in– it’s only a little bit, but it definitely adds to the hourglass illusion, which is not really a shape I am naturally. I’m wearing a size L and I find it extremely comfortable, although I have not yet had the chance to wear it for a very extended period of time (until today, the weather still hadn’t quite cottoned onto this whole ‘spring’ concept). The height is perfect for standing or sitting comfortably and the steel bones make me feel like I’m getting a very pretty, pink hug.
I have to say, it makes me wonder why anyone ever makes lingerie pieces like waspies and waist cinchers with plastic boning because I’ve worn them and they can be extremely annoying– this is far, far more comfy, as well as keeping its shape properly.
I got to choose what colors I wanted the waspie to be and it was a very difficult choice– I like so many colors that narrowing it down is almost too hard! I love the pink though and I think it’s going to be perfect for spring and summer, as well as going very well with all my pink lingerie. Now I just want it in nautical navy and white and black with cream and red with pink… is that too much, do you think?
Do you like it? Would you wear a waspie as a ‘starter corset’? Do you like the pink and white combination?
This was not a gift– I received this corset as payment for renting Angela a space for a photoshoot. I always like to be upfront about disclosures, even if there is nothing to disclose
