Dita Von Teese's Corsetmaker, Mr. Pearl, Speaks (VIDEO)

Jezebel came across a video on legendary corsetmaker Mr. Pearl whose waist-cinching lingerie is loved by the likes of Dita Von Teese, Thierry Mugler and Christian Lacroix.

In the clip, Dita recounts the first time Mr. Pearl made a corset for her, remarking, "I think we had a dozen fittings...I was amazed at the things he could see that I couldn't see." And Mr. Pearl praises Dita, gushing, "Everything about her is visually eloquent....I love to respond to all that she radiates and I enjoy proximity that makes me the envy of red-blooded males everywhere." And now, we'll weigh in on the whole thing with only three words, four syllables: Deee-ammn, those waists!
