Steampunk Dos and Don’ts?
So this ass.
"I, Clothesmonaut, self-appointed Commissar of Fashion, must bring my riding crop down hard on the well-intentioned, but wayward lads and lasses mangling the Steampunk fashion aesthetic."
How about you fuck right off?
- If you aren’t young, leggy, and thin, stay away from mini-skirts. A floor-length skirt or pants will be much more flattering. If you must show your legs, wear stockings and garters or go with lacy knickers. Remember, chunky, pasty white thighs are not sexy in any genre.
1. I disagree with your assertion of what sexy is.
2. Steampunk: It’s not just for pasty white people. Sorry you didn’t get the memo.
- If you don’t have a defined waist (that is, a waist that is substantially smaller than your hips), you can’t wear a waist cincher. A cincher on a waist-less person is just an unflattering band of fabric around your middle.
- A Victorian-style corset, particularly the underbust kind, is made for people with an hour glass figure who have the same amount of sand on the top as on the bottom. If you are pear-shaped or large-busted, this look is not for you. You will either appear unbalanced or your breasts will seem to float in space like two UFOs. Go for an over-the-bust corset or better yet, a fitted bodice.
BRB, DYING OF LAUGHTER AT THE COMPLETE MISUNDERSTANDING OF WHAT CORSETS ARE AND WHAT THEY DO.
VERY LITTLE WAIST DEFINITION:
CORSETS ON WOMEN WHO ARE NOT YOUNG, LEGGY AND THIN!!!
PEAR SHAPED. OMG.
UNDERBUST + TITTIES
Also, victorian ladies didn’t just happen to all be shaped like that. Corsets MAKE YOUR BODY BE SHAPED THAT WAY (Tighlacing effects shown for emphasis).
Especially if you wear them PRACTICALLY FROM BIRTH:
In short, you are an ignorant tool. Fuck off.
