I'm looking for a simple example where an inequality of the form $u_{L^q} \leq Cu_{W^{1,p}}$ fails for some $1 \leq q \leq p^*$ (ie. within the acceptable range for which the bound should hold) on a bounded domain $\Omega$ which must necessarily have a cusp of some sort. I am interested in an example for $1 \leq p < n$ of course. I know how to find examples for the $p > n$ case.

Hi, I don't know such an example, but the weaker condition i know is the following The Weak Cone Condition: Given $x\in \Omega$, let $R(x)$ consist of all points $y\in \Omega$ such that the line segment from $x$ to $y$ lies in $\Omega$. Let $$\Gamma(x)=\{y \in R ( x )\hbox { s.t. } \vert y  x \vert < 1\}.$$ We say that $\Omega$ satisfies the weak cone condition if there exists $\delta > 0$ such that $$ \vert (\Gamma(x))\vert \geq \delta \hbox{ for all } x\in \Omega .$$ You will find a proof in: Adams, R. A.; Fournier, John Cone conditions and properties of Sobolev spaces. J. Math. Anal. Appl. 61 (1977), no. 3, 713734.
