Being the little ferret I am, I dug about some more and found this.

Corsetsdropship.co.uk are a wholesalers for various corset manufacturers including the supplier for Corset Story and its affiliates, CorsetWholesale. CorsetWholesale, Corset Story, Corsets UK, and others all sell the same stock produced in sweatshops in India, coordinated by Suman Bharti.
ImI’m beginning to strongly doubt this man’s moral business compass.

recap: the print used in these corsets is a Doctor Who print created by Sharon Turner (who knows of the theft and is in contact with the companies concerned) and was fraudulently obtained and reproduced for the profit of the CorsetWholesale affiliate umbrella.

Something tells me that you and I are going to be friends,

MOON MOSAIC — A gorgeous image of the Moon from Noel Carboni via NASA: “No single exposure can easily capture faint stars along with the subtle colors of the Moon. But this dramatic composite view highlights both. The mosaic digitally stitches together fifteen carefully exposed high resolution images of a bright, gibbous Moon and a representative background star field. The fascinating color differences along the lunar surface are real, though highly exaggerated, corresponding to regions with different chemical compositions.” (NASA)

Luna is beautiful.

You might already have seen the graphic a few posts ago by The Corset Authority which compared designer corsets to products from Corsets Uk. I was familiar with CUK’s recent corset design rip offs, but the example pictured above was news to me.

CUK has, for as long as I have been aware of the brand, stocked plastic boned fashion corsets among its cheaper offerings, among which were the familiar fakes long-time followers will have seen a dozen times before. I’d let this slide, since the brand most likely did not produce them (they turn up in most job lots of plastic corset tops ordered by retailers from secondary suppliers), and also because no photos of original designer corsets were being used to advertise them.

Steam DID start coming out of my ears when I clocked the site selling original steel boned corsets (the site appears to be linked directly with the manufacturer of their steel boned lines) in the likeness of designer overbusts by independent makers. See my previous posts on this subject below:

And now I find the third steel boned fake (that I’m aware of). It’s a copy of the much coveted, but discontinued, cream overbust by Fairy Goth Mother.

I’m almost more confused than irritated at this point; why would CUK commission steel boned rip off corsets in designs which already appear among their plastic fashion corsets? The Miss Katy red overbust features the contrast stitching seen on the original but not found on the older, cheaper knockoffs, so it’s not a case of arranging innocent “upgrades” of cheaper stock.
Why have they chosen some of the most popular designs? Although more likely to grab customers, the designs are much easier to spot as copies.

I’m starting to wonder whether or not Corsets UK are deliberately baiting me…

the actual trade name for the company who make corsets for Corset Uk and other sites is called Punk69 and they are based in India
