Custom Made Corsets

All of our corsets are custom made to order and can be designed, modified or altered in any way desired. We offer both historically accurate and period inspired underpinnings. If you'd like to order a different style than pictured here just let us know. 

New underpinning styles coming soon!

We are in the process of expanding our selection of historically accurate underpinnings. Please be patient with us through this growth, which we anticipate will be completed by Summer 2009.

Corset Mock Up

A corset mock up is included in the pricing of all our corsets and is required. Because we cannot provide personal fittings for the majority of our clients the mock up is necessary to ensure the finished corset will fit perfectly. The mock up is made out of a single layer of cotton drill and is constructed similar to a finished corset including corset bones and lacing up the center back. Mock ups do not have busks. We also require clients supply us with several photos of themselves in the mock up before the mock up is sent back to us.* Once we have received and reviewed photos with the client we will ask the client to return the mock-up to us so that we may begin work on the corset.

*All photos are confidential and are only used for us to see the fit of the mock up. Any clients who wish to remain anonymous may crop their faces out of the photos - the torso is the only portion of the body that is necessary for us to see.
