Touaiba Ibn Seddik: Can we use a zipper instead of the busk? :)
Cari Loschen: Lucy Corsetry.. I just want to say THANK YOU! I put in my first busk today with the guidance of your video and it has gone smoothly. I appreciate your clear and concise instructions!! So grateful to have help like this available online. Keep up the GREAT work. Blessings to you and be well.
MrFilipFabulous: i bought the prym brand heavy duty hooks and eyes, BUT it is now i realize i should have gotten a#perforated steel bones or busk, to set them in, or i can use a power drill and drill them myself i suppose, however i choose to go with the no busk method but i have THREE pack of these hooks and eyes and i want to put them to use of corse
Lucy's Corsetry: The lacing is what makes a corset a corset. :\ If you want to make a corset-inspired shirt that has a busk but no lacing, make sure it does not give ANY waist reduction, because the busk only works strong as a whole (it's actually a bit delicate if you only pull on one pin at a time). If you have to struggle to put the corset around yourself because it's smaller than your own body, you may risk bending or breaking the busk. But if you make it the same size as you, it shouldn't be a problem. :)
MrFilipFabulous: Can you please show us how to insert individual hooks and eyes? I cant optain an actual busk, so i bought these instead, but i cant find any information on how they are inserted! please help im really puzzled :S

Leah Holmes: Just wondering, how do you find the right position for the busk? I have a 30cm busk to insert but my corset front is about 10cm longer. Should I line the centre of the busk up with the waistline of the corset or something? Thanks!
Samiambambam: THANK YOU!!! such a clear and informative video.
Marcy Garza: I need to make some corsets for a play. I am a somewhat experienced costumer, I've only ever made corsets without boning, they were purely for looks and were used on very thin women. Sorry for rambling, but here is my question: Are busks very necessary in making a laced corset? Is it bad if instead of using a busk I just stitch the front together and it only laces up in the back?
yoga makutaraditya: wow thank you for your fast reply.. ! yeah, how much is for seam allowance? for the waist reduction isn't it depending on the model's waist and fabrication?
yoga makutaraditya: hey, this is a very good post!! i wonder tho' how much allowance you give for each side of the corset? thank you :)
Sarah Vadas: @bishonenrancher What is your total opinion on zippers versus busks? I find zippers easier to use and so I tend to like them more, but I'm wanting to do some serious cinching in the future in order to prepare myself for my wedding in four months ! :-O
Sarah Vadas: what happened to your "insert boning" video?! eek! :(
ninjaofthenight64: May I ask, is there anyway I could incorporate a zipper as the front closure and somehow keep the sturdiness a double busk provides?
v1c4r10u5: I actually had a moment of wonder when you put the busk in- I was like, IT'S MAGIC!! :'D
I always wondered about the mechanics of all the bits and pieces that go into making a corset. Thank you very very much for all your wonderful tutorials!!
