I love corsets! A well made corset can even be comfortable to wear! I specialise in bespoke, made to measure corsetry.

You may like to have a corset that is true to a specific period (a replica or re-creation), be it Tudor, Elizabethan or Victorian. You may want a corselet to wear with a 1950’s gown, or something contemporary, gothic or avant-garde. I can create wedding / bridal corsets to wear as a bodice or underneath your gown, or perhaps for the wedding night.

A growing field of interest is Men’s corsetry. Making a corset for a man is a specialised technique and can achieve a powerful masculine look if required.

Any corsetry that extends below the natural waistline is made with steel and spiral steel boning. This means that your corset will not bend into a permanently weird shape (like with plastic bones) and it will last a long time.

Each corset is custom made to fit you, if you have had trouble finding a corset that fits well, or you think you are “hard to fit” let me know. We will start with a toile (calico mock-up) to get the perfect fit and then design a corset to meet your needs, fantasies or desires whether you are a size 8 or 28. Don’t worry if you don’t look like Kate Moss, I am skilled at making corsets work for all body shapes.

You can choose to have your corset made in fabric, leather or PVC. Traditional or modern fabrics can be used - beaded, painted, dyed and printed to produce a corset that is truly unique for you. You may like to have stretch panels incorporated in the side or back of your corset to use for performance, dance or just for comfort.

 If you are worried about changing shape, or extra flesh – don’t worry, a modesty panel can be included to accommodate wider amounts of lacing.

On completion you will receive instructions on the wear and care of your corset so that it can be worn over and over again.
