"I shared your new book release on my fan page,

Waist training has been a work in progress.
I feel like I gain, I loose, I wear the corset, and

"I want to thank you for all that you have offered
to the corsetry world over the years!
Corsetry has become an integral part of my life since
I first discovered it in 2011, and I know that
I wouldn't have had as positive of an initial
experience had I not begun with ROMANTASY. My first
corset was a simple black underbust made by Jill
Hoverman, and I remember what a pleasant experience it
was placing the order with you. And your book, which I
refer back to so often, is fantastic. It's wonderful
to have such a thorough and well-researched book on
corset training in the world." --
