I recall a local corset designer mentioned in my old copy of San Francisco Bizarro
A quick search reveals business is still booming:http://www.romantasy.com/
Good news for potential customers!
"Meet corsetiere Jade Locke at her corset exhibit, Fall Harvest Festival - Kansas City - Nov. 4-7,
and on Sat. Nov. 22 join us at San Francisco's Corset Soiree (Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco)"
