This book picks up the stories, descriptions and confessions that were started to be told in the untitled Pink Corset Book. These corsets are older  and more fragile and most have bone buttons as their closures. I wanted to create a way in which these corsets connect to one another by using the bone buttons. Each of the corsets now connect to the lining of the inside corset with a series of loops that loop over each of the buttons on the sides of the corsets.
