Hi! I wanna purchase a black corset, without any prints and ornaments. On VF store I've found this one http://store.vampirefreaks.com/product/details/8836/Satin-Heart-Shaped-Neckline-Corset---Black . But it daunts me that it glitters so much. I've found the second variant here https://www.bestadvisor.com/waist-trainers the mat corset(I attached the pic). Which one do you like more? And can you, maybe, recommend other mat corset variants?

are you purchasing for waist training, or for accessorizing?

More for accessorizing. But it would be cool, if I could combine these both aspects.

It depends on your budget. I got mine from Vollers Corsets.

They are a bit more expensive but the quality is excellent. One of these will last you for many years.

I'd recommend saving up for a decent one and going to a shop to get properly measured and fitted if you're planning on going for a steel boned one. Everyone's bodyshape is different so you might find one off the rack that fits if you're lucky, but as most of them are standard measurements it's difficult to lace them correctly (there should be an even space the whole way down, not open more at the top or bottom than in the middle.) If you do it wrong you can risk hurting yourself as well as damaging the boning and fabric. If you try to lace it too tightly too fast without giving the fabric time to adjust to the strain it can warp it, as well as squishing your organs in the wrong place. It takes a few wears to break the corset in. It's difficult to eat much (if at all) and you should make sure you drink enough (likely more than usual). It's also usual for body temperature to be a bit higher due to restricted bloodflow- if you start feeling faint at all then unlace!!
I'd recommend getting a 'fashion' one if you're just going for a 'look'. They can be pretty and are fine for a few nights out without the cost, commitment or potential risks of going straight for the steel.

Personally, I recommend Orchard Corset. They're very good quality, decently priced and they're actually built properly. If you tight lace you can use them to waist train, but worn on a looser setting they can be used for fashion or as a compression device. They make you take your measurements before you order so the corset is cut to fit your form. They use steel bones instead of that shitty plastic boning. When you get corsets that's an important thing to look out for. Plastic boning doesn't hold a shape properly. A corset with plastic boning would make even the lovely Dita Von Teese look like a tube of sausage.

Here's a photo of me wearing my mesh underbust hourglass corset. That same style of corset comes in a solid black with gorgeous satin fabric. My friend Nyx has that corset and it is stunning.
