Has anyone made a corset?

This is a project I am working on now. It will take me a while as they are very time consuming. I would like to use them to help my figure, not to waist train. Sometimes a woman just wants to have the right type of curves. lol

It may take me a little while as I am new (9 months) to sewing altogether. I am learning through some online video's. About 30 video's. It took a whole week just to get through them. lol Anyway, I have gotten as far as making my duct tape form of my body, making/cutting it into my pattern and making most of my mock sample. 

I hope to get good enough to be able to make some nice corset tank tops. You know like a conservative corset that has the straps on the top and will cover as much as a tank top. We will see how well I do with the boning and busks. I will post when I get one finished and as I move forward with them subsequent ones after.

Ive made them before, and it wasn't super easy, but well worth it. My advice, if you have a lot to hold in like I do, splurge on high-quality boning. the cheap stuff will be super uncomfortable and will be too malleable to provide good support.

I've made several and after you get the first one done they start going a lot quicker.

 I haven't but I need to find someone local to make one for me for a cosplay.

What do you use to make a corset?

 For a good wearable corset I use a heavy fabric outside (denim, light weight canvas, upholstry fabric), heavy interfacing (called coutil), light weight lining fabric (cotton), batting (if creating shaped cups), metal boning (harder to work with than plastic, but keeps its shape), metal gromets (with snap setting tools), some kind of lacing material, hook and eyes, and any embelishments desired.
