Maggie writes: "Hi Outblush! Your emails are my afternoon happy time. I have been searching for this bustier with no luck and thought who better to ask than you. The tailored fit (I'm a size XS/S) and length of the torso are what make me want this so badly. I want to wear it to a December holiday party with some high waist, wide leg trouser pants. I have seen this all over Pinterest, but can't find where to buy it. Unfortunately, I'm convinced this is out of my under $50 budget! All in all, I would love a classy tailored bustier that will stay up and flatter my small frame."
Well, Maggie, turns out your Pinterest pic is actually a shot from a fashion editorial featuring Merle Bergers - which means you're probably right about this piece being out of non-supermodel budgets. I've tracked down a few more budget-friendly alternatives. Hope one catches your eye!
