US Army Veteran Suffered Back Pain for Years
The CS-426 Gives Her New Hope
Hello OC Blog Readers! I wanted to share with you a heart-warming email I received over the weekend. Now we often hear from customers how wearing a corset has reduced and in many cases eliminated back pain for many women (and men). Some of you may have seen the interview I did with the Corset Vloggers when they were here and Byrdie shared her own story about the back injury that drew her to corseting.
When I received Maya’s email, I thought what an inspirational story! Maya has generously allowed us to share her story and hopes she can help others who suffer needlessly.
I got my 426 last week, and I have got to say thank you.
I have back issues, stemming from my time in the US Army, and for YEARS the
doctors at the VA hospitals have done nothing to help, but throw pills at
me. I may sound like a drama queen when I say this, but I am honestly being
completely genuine…I feel like you have given me my life back.
It has been about 3 years since Ive been able to do a full days worth of
“stuff” without winding up in bed sobbing unable to even shower without my
husband’s help. I haven’t been able to work, because I’m either in extreme
pain or a complete zombie from the pills the VA tries to force on me.
Last night, the first time wearing my corset for an extended time, I was
able to go out and celebrate my best friends birthday and I didn’t have to
leave after an hour and miss most the fun, this morning I woke up, put the
corset back on, and went to the grocery store, the library, the laundromat,
shoe shopping, and the post office then I came home, cleaned the apartment
and made my husband dinner. I know that sounds like nothing, just an
average day, but I actually have tears of relief rolling down my face as I’m
writing this. I haven’t had an “average day” in so long that I forgot what
one was. It usually takes me at least a week to get all those tasks
So thank you, so very much. I was just expecting something aesthetically
pleasing when I got my corset in the mail, but you have given me SO much
more. You have a lifelong and loyal customer in me! I can’t wait to get my
With sincere gratitude,
Thank you again to Maya for her courage and kindness. We would love to hear from others who have found relief in corseting-so please share in the comments below. It’s funny because I read testimonials and reviews from customers all the time, but it wasn’t until two weeks when I hurt my back that I realized what an amazing difference wearing a corset can make. My corset is what got me through several work days last week. Happy Corseting everyone!
