Do not ground your child because you caught them putting a cigarette flame to their wrist.
Do not discipline your child because they have cuts on their thighs.
Do not threaten to put your child in a mental institution because their only escape is self-harm.
Do not teach your children that if they open up to you about the scars on their bodies, the only thing they will get in return is punishment.

Before the availability of the tape recorder and during the 1950s, when vinyl was scarce, people in the Soviet Union began making records of banned Western music on discarded x-rays. With the help of a special device, banned bootlegged jazz and rock ‘n’ roll records were “pressed” on thick radiographs salvaged from hospital waste bins and then cut into discs of 23-25 centimeters in diameter. “They would cut the X-ray into a crude circle with manicure scissors and use a cigarette to burn a hole,” says author Anya von Bremzen. “You’d have Elvis on the lungs, Duke Ellington on Aunt Masha’s brain scan — forbidden Western music captured on the interiors of Soviet citizens.”
A better update, for comparison!
From left to right: no corset, day 2 of seasoning, and today (after seasoning and a couple weeks of 8-hour/day tightlacing)
My natural waist is 38”. This is a 28” 411 from Orchard Corset. It has about 1” gap left in the underbust and about 3” in the hips. I could probably close it in a week or so if it weren’t for the hips. :( So my next investment will be a petite Josephine from Isabella Corsetry! Experts, do you think I should go for another 28”, or size up to a 30”?
I do love the shape this one gives me. My hips just aren’t going to get any smaller, lol!
