Thank you from daisy. I bit the bullet and used Cathy's corset construction from YWU made a firm denin toile with closed back and front and almost fully boned, and hey presto a well fitting comfortable corset - thank you Cathy! and Lara for your reassurance that this was indeed a sensible approach.
