I have a victorian ball to go to this saturday (12th september) and I have nothing to wear!!!!

I've looked all round the costume hire places and there's nothing that fits as I seem to be two different sizes >_< My bust is too big

Is there anyone out there that can help me???

I've given you all my suggestions. sad But has fingers crossed that someone else can help! You also might want to say that going as a male wont work either as you already have Cyren as the male in the couple...

What are your measurements? There is still time for someone to post something.

I have a red velvet monstrosity, based on 16th century dresses, was suppossed to be the red dress from Pirates of the Carribean but... well it doesn't look too much like it. But you could borrow if it'll fit?

Umm, not now, but I'm going home soon and I'll take a few pics and stuff. Give me a best guess at your measurements (PM if you like) and I'll adjust my dressmakers dummy to fit as much as I can (it's boobs are pretty small though) and see if it'll fit. Sometimes things fit differently on people.

I have some corsets I'm happy to post down - a red satin overbust, and a few black underbusts if you can wrangle a skirt and blouse.

Admin - she can't as it's a re-enactment ball, which means that you have to make a reasonable attempt at dressing to the time period.

I'm 35 bust, 31 waist and 37 hips. Its got some extra room in the hips and maybe a little extra in the bust, but it depends WHERE your boobs are. Not much in the waist though.

Admin: I wish I could do that!!! I'd be someone from Dr Who!!! XD

Korn: It's a really pretty dress but I don't think it would fit me as I'm quite a bit smaller than you

Static: Can you please post some pics or give measurements please?

My measurements: b38, w31, h38. My corsets are about 4-5 inches smaller than me though (with the exception of the overrbust, it's a little too big for me) so will cinch smaller bodies quite nicely :) The underbusts I have are 2 in black, one in navy and white vertical stripe - Duckeh wore it to the ACB if that's any help lol. Pics are here: http://gallery.little-noise.com/main.php?g2_itemId=3155 but I don't have the strapped one anymore; it was a commission.

Have you tried hire shops that are owned by theaters? They might be able to help or you could buy a corset plus a dress?
