Could i enquire, is this weekend for regulars or is it open to wider DS users?


All ds events are open to all ds members, regardless of how many posts they have made, or how long they have been on the site.


As Alison says, all DS members are full members. Not sure I'll be taking advantage of that in the case of corset-making classes mind you.


i think you would look lovelly in a corset


Yeah? Sussies or hold-ups, you reckon?


sussies - always sussies - Thinking BB as Frank-n-Furter here now

well, he's got the height, I always reckon you can carry off a lot of sartorial adventurousness if you are tall enough, hmm, yep, can see BB in full RH rig with a feather boa

Don't think I can make it either, I think I'm going to a wedding that weekend.

What about the bringing of small people?
I'm not sure S could manage to remain on the right side of not being a nuisance.

Dwarves? They could help out with the food. I think there might be something deliciously louche about being served canapes from a tray by a corseted dwarf.

I think for that you've just volunteered yourself to run a creche at the weekend complete with playdough, finger painting and story time

S is fine - its that bloody duck that's the trouble maker - I think there will probably be a number of smalls - my Emma loved S - she'd take her off your hands for a bit whilst you got strapped into a corset

I would imagine we might make small sections of the corset fitting 'ladies only' and banish men and children over or under a certain nonspecific age to avoid general gawking/embarrassment/rude comments, though most of the talk and session would be fine for all onlookers, so having a plan to entertain kids and men might be sensible.

We would all like to come, but would have to save up. What sort of costs would there be for the children?

Diary checked! Can come. Will be just me and Tim as the boys are on holiday with their dad - but it works really well for us as we're planning a welsh cottage hols that week so easy to pop in to Pennys on the way home

Doh. I thought the whole point of the fittings was to provide entertainment for the men (in between breaks from slaving away with their finely honed, Adonis-like figures, making tempting sweetmeats for their womenfolk)
