Something I've been wondering since I first saw that post: does that even have any significant change to one's hip structure post-puberty?
Well what happens (this is coming from a person I know who is on Hormones) is the fat relocates itself to hips to create some curves in the hip area.

I don't think pelvis bone changes with maybe the exception that you're on hormones when you shatter your pelvis and the hormones influence the healing of the pelvis.

P.S. Please don't try to shatter your pelvis to see if above is true. =.=

I'm doing a crossplay of a character with a hoop skirt, so do I need to worry as much about padding my hip area? I'm figuring not since it poofs out in that area anyway.

My other issue is the waist bit. I'm a bigger guy (don't have exact measurements right now) and am unsure of these corsets/waist cinchers/ whatever will work. Also, is there a cheaper alternative to corsets? I took one look at them and my wallet cried. I'm looking at these waist thinner belts as a substitute, since they're much cheaper. Considering I had to spend a lot more than I was expecting on the costume itself, I'd like to get as much out of my money as possible. This thing particularly I was looking at. It's only 5 bucks, (though that's American I believe, so I imagine it'll be slightly more expensive in Canada.) Anyway, worth getting? Or is there something better that won't cost me an incredible sum of money?

I never used the sports slimmer thing there, but I've purchased a female waist slimmer at Walmart that you hook around yourself, which worked pretty well. You just have to choose the right size for you--make sure it's small but not too small that it's uncomfortable. I think it was around 10 to 15 dollars. Also on ebay I've been looking at "corsets." Not actual nice ones that cost a ton of money, but they are affordable and they do have steel boning in them, so you may want to peruse those too.

I'm glad I am one of those very few guys who naturally have wide hips and a skinny waist. Seriously, Guys are usually between .9 and 1 then girls are usually between .6 and .8. I am personally a .77 and my knees even slightly bend inward. I actually find Mens Pants very uncomfortable around my hips and even own a couple pairs of womans pants that I find so much more roomy. Now if only I could figure how to deal with my broad shoulders and somewhat manly face.

Sorry, Just wanted to throw my two cents in. I would recommend checking out "f an p lus f riend" for corsets but allegedly they got a lot of bad reviews several years ago and the words get replaced with LUMBERJACKED! when posted.

What unit of measurement are you using? I feel like I'm just like you, having a slim waist and wide hips, but I won't know for sure if I knew what unit of measurement you're using

Whatever you DO NOT get the cheap ebay corsets. The material is not what it should be. I went ahead and bought a regular corset and it works VERY well, and will serve you well through all of your costumes. Before getting a cheap fake ebay corset get a bustier that hooks then zips up the front.

Only if they are not adjusted properly and ill fitting. Don't tight lace right off, and make sure to break your corset in properly.

What do you mean by that? Are you referring to shaving your legs or something else?
