I've looked around a bit on this forum, but I didn't see much that would help me, so I figured I'd ask for opinions instead. My sister is interested in dressing up for the Faire, but she's a little picky. She doesn't like to wear skirts, so she figures she can be a pirate and get away with wearing pants. She wants to wear a bodice, but she's tall (about 6ft tall), and long waisted, and so is having a hard time. She got a bodice a while ago, when I got my garb, but she doesn't like it because she got one that was too big, and it hits her at the rib cage, not the waist (her words, not mine). She doesn't like the way it looks on her, because it pushes all of her, uh, cushioning up and down, creating the lovely shelf like effect on the top of it, and the not so lovely one below it. It wouldn't be so bad, if she was wearing skirts, but, as I said, she won't. She thinks maybe getting a stomacher or something like that may work better, but I wasn't sure, so I figured I'd ask the experts.
The Faire here in Vegas is next weekend, and she plans to keep her eyes peeled, as long as it's within her budget. If she doesn't find anything there, she'll look elsewhere as well. We're just interested in suggestions (mostly she wants to wear the pants, but wants the bodice effect, hehehe).
