Boy, it was FUN! If you don't know Dark Garden*, they're a corsetry shop in SF that makes some very lovely (expensive!) things. I'd been wanting to try on their stuff for a long time now, so yesterday, a pal and I trekked over and tried on ALL THE THINGS. We didn't buy anything, because even on sale, they were in the $600 range, but now I know which styles I like best, and what fabrics, and now I can save up.
Anyway, it was really a fun outing, and if you're in SF, I recommend it as a Thing To Do.
*their website seems to be down at the moment. Sorry about that.
