If you will search for Lolita style corsets….

… then you should shop in the Harijuku district of a Tokyo. This eclectic district makes London’s Camden Town seem tame. Not because of the incomprehensible Japanese signs, or the hordes of tourists photographing the barley legal teens wearing provocative anime-inspired costumes normally reserved for the bedroom lives of the slightly more adventurous. But because merely spending an hour or two wandering these backstreets will turn you into a teenage Japanese girl (or boy) actually considering buying a little bo peep costume to wear to the park next Sunday. The kitsch little shops will draw you in with their subliminally infective trance music until you break down and buy a tiny top hat to clip to the side if your head, or a Lolita style corset for one of your friends back home. You simply must make this a priority for your Sunday afternoon in Tokyo.
