I’m flying to Sydney next week and I’d like to take a steel-boned corset with me. Can anyone here tell me if there is going to be an issue with having it in my suitcase? On an x-ray (I suppose) it would show up as about 10 pieces of flat steel with rounded ends, and 8 of what look like metal springs crushed flat. It also has metal eyelets down the back.
Does anyone here work ‘back-stage’ at an airport? What should I do? Should I stick a note or something to the corset explaining what it is, just in case they check? Or has anyone flown with a corset before? Did you have any problems with it?
