Absolutely stunning OMG!

The wait and hype surrounding the MCC36X’s release didn’t prepare me for the experience of actually seeing it in person (gorgeous! expensive! chic!) and finally feeling it’s embrace. This low cut, high-spring rib shaping feels like I’m not in a corset at all (snackathons ensue unhindered, beware), and the elegant way it wraps round to the high back, distracts from the clever function of how the fit can be altered easily with you lace up ( /\ for ease on the lower front, \/ to ‘push up’ the bust- inverse of usual method). Length from waistline is true to measurements but rests shorter once laced in. After the MCC16C, this style also has the BEST hip shaping I’ve had in years, she’s cupped TO THA GAWDS. Heavenly is the only word I can think of to describe how that feels and looks. In the time that I’d spend wearing this style only, my body’s shape began to look significantly more hourglass (same shaping MCC254 does for me, but in a longer timeframe… mcc36x: 1 week vs mcc254: 2-3 days). It’s a bit different getting into this one with the off-center front to back shaping, (sit her on a pillow and lay back on her to close the busk), but this method is worth the work for her incredible fit and silhouette. With a very short pelvis that doesn’t do well with things approaching 6″ or more below, I was most dubious about the extended abdomen coverage. In daily wear I’ve found this style to settle around the pelvis & anchor on the lower belly- YMMV (I’ve no belly/hence no poking out peen, & the wrapped hip effect has been kind). Ultimately the ‘long bottom’ feature has worked surprisingly well for stealthing the MCC36X, which feels kind of like a crime since it’s so pretty. Now on to it’s stunning busk, the highest quality I’ve found among all of the brands I’ve ever had. It’s like a well made piece of jewelry. In the last 5 months of usage I was terrified this would get dinged or lose it’s shine, and have been pleased to find it’s still as pretty as the day she came home. No scratches, blemishes, corrosion, dulling etc, etc. For those of us who wish to curve the busk to our own angles, woe betides, she’s no fainting lily who takes much wooing and will withstand pretty much all approaches typically taken to achieve a spoon effect. It took me about a week of incremental, gentle curving over a rounded tailors ham while not wearing it, to tilt out the busks’ bottom halves and bring them ‘back in’ at their end. The result of curving out an inch of that length has only heightened this style’s beauty and charm, and must be taken into account when considering the design as much rests on how the busk lays on one’s body. All in all would advise the best match for her are shorter curvy bodies that can fill her out, though she’s been stunning on everyone I’ve seen in one.

I am currently on my second wear of the corset so I may update my review a bit later. First off, the appearance of the corset is amazing. Absolutely amazing. The gold areas of the brocade has a shine that matches perfectly with the gold busk hooks and lacing grommets. This is my first corset with yellow gold (brass) grommets and I’m never going back – it’s really lovely.
Now, I will say that getting the corset on this first time is very challenging. The hooks and posts of the busk are more shallow than I am used to. You might struggle to the extent where you almost have no hope thinking you made a mistake ordering too small a corset. But soldier on, corseted maiden! As soon as I got my first hook done (took loosening the hip ties a bit), the rest came easily and I was genuinely surprised how much I was able to pull those laces on the first wear! The second time I wore it, getting the busk on was really, really easy. I didn’t even have to loosen it all the way. So fear not, the corset will grow to you rapidly
The corset comes laced with the “inverted bunny ears” style, which I actually prefer. Thanks MCC for saving me from having to re-lace my corset! The modesty panel is a type I haven’t actually worn before and I love it. I’m never going back. Typically, if I have a modesty panel, it’s sewn in as a loose satin fabric flap you can adjust. I find it only really helps to protect my skin and corset liner from friction from the laces. I tend to still get the waist a bit “bunched up” at the back. In this one, it’s floating and is laced in. It’s stiff and actually prevents that little “chub” I can sometimes get in the back at the center. Keep in mind, this will take some getting used to as you should try to make sure the modesty panel is always lined up well with your corset. This may take a few adjustments as you lace up, but it’s important that you be mindful of it as the laces themselves are tied into it. If you don’t adjust accordingly, lacing will then be more difficult. Also I should note that I actually see much less muffin top in this corset than I have seen in others which is great! Huge boon.
Overall, my initial impressions are that this corset is top notch, especially for the price. I have an 11″ difference between waist and hip size with an extreme pear shape so this corset has really been wonderful. Very comfy so far with no difficulties with it pressing into my hips – I assume that if that happens towards the end of seasoning and closing the corset, those hip ties will come in handy!
