Well crud. They made that site membership only. I signed up, will see what's there. I think it's going to be paywalled.
I searched "corset pattern free" and found this site https://www.araneablack.com/free-corset-pattern-2/ and their Corset Pattern Underbust Sonya and the Corset Pattern Waspie Anna look most like what I work with.
Thanks for catching that!

I don't have the level of chronic back issues that some others on this thread suffer from, but my core was weakened by two C-sections, daughter #2 was over 10 lb at birth and I pinched a sciatic nerve one day hauling her in her carseat out of the car before I had built up any abdominal muscles again. Twenty plus years later that stupid nerve pinch still recurs so if I know I will be doing heavy lifting likely to flare it up I whip out my trusty back brace. It covers the same area as Pearl's corsets but is a far less elegant solution. And I doubt very much could be worn inconspicuously under most clothes.
By the way, FWIW, I wonder if there may be a niche business opportunity in corsets. A former coworker's wife used to have an online corset business. This was probably 15-20 years ago and I have no idea how successful it was or whether she is still doing it. But I'm guessing there are a lot of people with back pain who don't sew.
