A Firm Foundation
I started wearing a girdle at age 15, although at that time not on a daily basis. I was heavy set and kids made fun of me at school and the girdle was a way to improve my shape a bit. In my late teens, I advance to more frequent wearing for special occasions such as going out on a date or attending a school dance. By my mid twenties I had decided that I needed more firm support so advanced to a firm open bottom girdle with a boned underbelt. I wore this for several months until I realized that with out the girdle on, none of my clothes fit anymore. So now I am a full time wearer. Love the feeling and the shape it provides me.
