Yes No   I have two issues on my desk - how to alter a corset to avoid a "fleshy bulg" at the lower edge due to pressing softer tissue downwards and how to make a lift.
The second problem is hereby solved and am very happy for the info given in this article.
Just recently I got some patterns from a company called Bra-Makers Supply and when checking their website there were many foam cups to pick from. Guess there are many more companies like this one.

Yes No   Thank you for that link, Magnus!
Looks like an excellent source for readymade push-up pads.

Yes No   Fantastic article! I find busts are always the trickist part of any corset so this is really good info, looking forward to applying some of the principals to my next corset!

Yes No   This is exactly what I needed!!
I've been experimenting with a half finished corset that was rushed for an event, but never finished because the bust just looked truly horrible. I just couldn't get the push-up effect quite right no matter what I seemed to do.
I did add bust pads, but now I know where I was going wrong with them too!

Now I look forward to finishing off this hopefully no longer frustrating corset.

Yes No   Very useful!!

I also add that, in my opinion, a straight bustline is better than, say, a sweetheart or a plunge for a very little bust: I don't know if it's just me, but I find that a curvy line can distract and make it harder to notice those two little mounds over there :-)

I'm trying to make a push up corset for my sister (she's THIN! her measures are: 76-70-76) and this article is just what I needed!

Yes No   Loved and Needed this article. I was really interested in the removable padding which helps quite a bit in mastectomy or partial mastectomy remedies. Wasn't quite sure how to go about it. Thank you.
