Lovely e mail i just got from tumblr a bit of @hourglass-silhouette

Lovely e-mail I just got from Tumblr.

A bit of context: last week (I think?) I received a message from a photographer asking me delete a picture that belonged to them, I replied as soon as I saw it that I’d be glad to oblige if they could just send me a direct link to said picture since the description they gave me (“a girl in a red corset”) was pretty vague and it wasn’t feasible for me to go looking at every one of the thousands of pictures in this blog. Photographer never replied and decided to go directly to Tumblr which I would understand if they had gotten no reply from me but I tried to be as civil and accomodating as I could???

I stopped actively posting on this blog a long time ago and only queued the occassional reblog. I run 3 blogs on this account and have thought of deleting my main many times but always resisted the urge because people seemed to enjoy this blog more and I didn’t want to take this away from anyone, even if there were no regular new posts, I figured the archive could still be useful??? But now with this I’m just feeling very upset and drained. I don’t know what to do. I feel like I should just delete everything since I don’t want more trouble, but at the same time that would make me so sad.

Sorry for ranting but I just needed to get this off my chest.

Exclusivelyselectedlingerie riwaanerona @hourglass-silhouette



Collection “Noire”, which was shown at the event La Femme, presents a “darker” side of female personality and as the name suggests, the main theme is black color. I used mostly translucent materials in combination with impressive materials - satin, lace and polished textiles.

In the photo by Marius Sachtikus Photography you can see a collection of lingerie in black with dark red elements - retro bra inspired by the fifties with quilted bottom of cups, panties from the same material, garter belt “Nymph” in the all-black verison. Tight-lacing corset is made from extra shiny acetate silk and double boned with flat steel bones. Corset is closed with matching black busk. Whole corset is decorated with hand-sewn lace applications in dark red color.

Angelafriedman that thing youre wearing is not a @hourglass-silhouette


That thing you’re wearing is not a corset! A corset is heavily structured to actually contour your body into a new shape, including a reduction of the waist. A corset is not a glorified bustier that simply smoothes over flesh and pushes up your breasts. A corset should not make you look like a tube.

Here’s a side by side to help illustrate.  (Left - Fredericks of Hollywood plastic-boned bustiers.  Note how they almost make the woman look wider around the waist!  Right - Angela Friedman steel-boned authentic corsets.)

For more info on real vs. fake corsets, I’d recommend this article by The Lingerie Addict as a great starting point.
