Star Trek Inspired Corset

 Il Fullxfull.54213112  Il 430Xn.54213292 This handmade corset was inspired by the uniforms on Star Trek: The Next Generation. It's available on Etsy for $200 and can be made in any of the Star Trek colors.
Star Trek Inspired Corset (Thanks, Jess Hemerly!)


  1. The nice thing about this corset is that besides the Pin, the corset can stand alone without being a Star Trek clothing. While the pattern is inspired by the ensign clothing design, you don’t have to use it for Star Trek themed events. Especially since the Pin isn’t included with the corset.

    The Pin seems to act like Clark Kent glasses. Pin on: Corseted Trekie woman. Pin off: Corseted woman.

  2. Great garment.
    I take this opportunity to post this link to a Star Trek/ Monty Python mash-up which some may find amusing:

    I know that I did. Thanx to the DVD Savant for the heads-up.

  3. @BarelyFitz:

    They’re the same… One’s just from the back..

    (Or were you making some statement that went right over my head?)

  4. Ivan, there are two significant differences between the picture on the right and the one on the left. Can you guess what they are?

  5. For those of you thinking of purchasing it – do take note that there is no busk. This means that you will have to lace it from scratch every time you want to wear it, which is a pain in the ass.

    I think not having a busk was the correct choice for this corset, since a busk would ruin the look. However, it does make it harder to wear.

  6. Kudos to AMPHIGOREY for pointing out there’s no busk, a big problem of both convenience and of structure.

    Another gaffe here is that this “corset” laces from top to bottom.

    A real corset laces to the middle so you can cinch the waist as you tighten.

  7. ZOMG! My nerd fantasies have been (almost) fulfilled. Now if that woman would just put on a gold Leia bikini, I could die happy.

    And where were these gorgeously stacked nerdettes when I was younger? The librarian helpers didn’t look like that!

  8. Ruth666: Actually looks like the corset can be laced however you like. Doesn’t stop it from being a corset. Seems to be pushing things up in the right place :)

  9. You can take out the laces and re-do to end in the center, provided the lace is long enough, which it usually isn’t when it’s presented like this.

  10. Quote from Down Periscope… “Lt. Lake, you’re almost out of uniform.” I think this applies nicely.

  11. You know how the star ship crew taps their com-badges when they want to hail the Enterprise? I would love to see her do that in this outfit.

  12. Keep in mind that the average Trekkie waist is 54″. Corsetry loses some of its luster when squeezing the middle just leads to acres of flesh oozing out of the ends.

  13. $200 is on the low end for a custom corset. They are fairly labor-intensive, and if you are doing any kind of pattern adjustment, that adds significantly to the time spent building the corset.

    Just to give you some perspective, top corsetiers (like San Francisco’s Dark Garden, possibly the best in the world) charge about $800 for a custom corset. They are worth it; they give amazing shape, and they are very comfortable.

  14. I can understand people ‘reading’ no further than the images, but the text does say a busk can be added for those who prefer, and it can be relaced at the point of manufacture (i.e. longer laces can be provided).

  15. Hello, Nurse Chapel! Can we get some kind of cold-shower chaser? Hold the unicorn, because that’ll just keep me hot and bothered too.

  16. @14- Well put, sir, well put.

    @46- “Please, miss, don’t trouble yourself. Allow me…”

    Dark Garden! Fabulous shop; cannot afford. It seems their costs have gone up, they used to be less. The folks at Stormy Leather gave me high marks on my cinching technique, but they’re mostly prêt-à-porter.

    I think the reading thing is somewhat dependent on gender identity. Wait, I’m into the boobies and also read past…

    Crap-tastic argument, Alpin, now I don’t know what I am!

    Shit, I’m over 30, that’s prolly it. How depressing. Oh well, back to the fapping. Wait, was that out-loud?
