The Daily Waist
Hi, my name is Marianne Faulkner! Thank you for following along.

If you like corsets, there's a pretty good chance you've read one of my articles for The Lingerie Addict, where I was a writer for 5 years. My current project is The Daily Waist, a lingerie blog focusing on all things corset, as experienced by an expert corsetmaker and longtime wearer. I'm really excited about this venture, creating a new hub for corset enthusiasts and education. It's my goal to create an inclusive space first with the blog, and then take The Daily Waist name to other platforms, such as a book on waist training, and eventually an app.

Corset Education
I am a corset maker who believes passionately in educating my audience – about how to recognize fit and quality in a corset, about the myriad physical and emotional health benefits of a well-made (and properly fitted) corset, about how to find a corset that best suits their individual needs, and so forth. I also write about the art and business of corsetmaking for Foundations Revealed.

Credentials
My professional life at this point has come to revolve around corsets, and I studied corsets extensively through the coursework of my BFA and MFA in fashion design.

I am best known for my innovative corset line Pop Antique as well as my popular corset-focused column for The Lingerie Addict. I also work at Dark Garden (a legend in corsetmaking, and the longest practicing corsetiere in the Americas), and was a founding Corset Fellow for the Oxford Conference of Corsetry. I have networked far and wide, and my opinions on corsets are informed by my own experimentation as well as direct experiences with other makers' work.

Me
I live in San Francisco with my wife and a minimum of two three cats.

More Than It Seams
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
Inside the nitty gritty of corsetmaking and corset business. Exclusive posts about my process, plus a monthly solo or group video chat. Need help measuring yourself for your next corset? Having sizing issues or discomfort? I've worked with a lot of bodies over the years and am happy to help with a 20 minute Skype consultation to assess your compressibility and which styles will work best for your body and lifestyle. Great for makers as well as enthusiasts who want a closer look. Also includes all previous rewards.
Corset Bag Collection
$100 or more per month 0 patrons
Get custom made corset bags to host your entire collection (one per month). I can make individual bags for each corset or a make-up brush style roll-up that easily stores multiple corsets. Each bag is handmade by me in San Francisco, using an exclusive, custom printed fabric. Individual corset bags are made with french seams and sandwich bag style fold-tops to keep your corset snug as a bug in a rug! You must be a patron at this level for at least 3 months to be eligible for the multi-corset roll-up bag. Also includes all previous rewards.
