Get one now, the very structured bustier. This one is from Bodkin, a new line based out of Brooklyn, we can probably find some interesting ones on ebay. While you are at it pick up Dita Von Teese's book, The Art of the Burlesque. She is insane, I love it. I read it two years ago (and got it signed by her at Harrods!) When she wrote the book she was still married to Marilyn Manson, so it may sound outdated, but she really knows her stuff. It breaks down the make up techniques of each decade, and the style of dress of each era. I don't dress like her at all, but it was cool to see the line at Harrod's full of girls that looked like they just walked out of a Dick Tracy movie. Not to mention she gives a great historical breakdown of Burlesque dancing.
