How to order a made-to-measure corset:
1. Choose fabric and options ⇗
2. Checkout and pay
3. Collect the measurements and photos
4. Wait for your corset to be made
5. Get it shipped to you!
For more samples of this style see the bottom of the page.
Estimated sewing time – 6-10 weeks (from the date of full payment and providing all required measurements and photos).
To guarantee the best fit and comfort, I recommend starting with purchasing a remote mock-up fitting session.
This corset is designed as a modern top inspired by the baroque stays. Instead of tabs below the waist it has small gussets that allow you to have comfortable waist reduce without losing overall 18th century shape. Combine it with skirts or jeans, wear it to the party or the office, or use it as a part of your fantasy gown - whatever yor heart desires!
These stays have excellent bust support with horizontal boning, being patterned based on the 1780s prototype. The overall conical shape is quite comfortable and high back reliefs your shoulders. They can be worn strapless - or you can add attached or fully removable ones, especially for lagrer busts.
- The basic corset is half-boned with a mix of metal and plastic and has a satin cord for lacing. The inside fabric layer is cotton, basic fashion fabric – cotton satin of in-stock colors (included in price).
Select fabric type and preferable color. I'll send you an email with available in-stock fabrics (cottons and silks) or we decide on ordering a special one. Materials like silk sateens, damasks, genuine or faux leather may cost extra and will be covered by an additional invoice. Purchasing custom materials may increase production time.
- Default pattern is strapless, but you can add attached or removable straps.
- Stays are back-laced in period asymmetric style. If you strictly prefer symmetric, please mention it in the personalization box.
- You can request front lacing or zipper closure for easier put-on, but it will slightly affect the bust shaping. I recommend ordering zipper with underbusk support for better durability.
- Handstitched eyelets can add a bit more "historical" touch or protect you from nickel allergy.
- Corset can be made with flat non-removable back modesty panel or removable laced-in one.
How to take the measurements:
Please read the instructions carefully, since 80% of our success is the correct set of measurements. I recommend using assistance for better results. Feel free to ask, if you have questions about the scheme.
Undress till the underwear, use the bra that best fits you and lifts the bust. No pants, skirts, or anything that covers or squishes your body.
Mark the waistline with a tape - it should go horizontal below the usual “most thin” waist level, 1-2 cm (0.5-1") above the belly button. Check your body side - there should be no ribs or hip bones on this level, only soft parts of you!
I need at least two photos of you - front and side, mirror selfie is good enough. No pants or tops covering the torso, lingerie only. These images will never be seen by anybody except me or the sewing team, but I need them to focus on details like bust position and torso proportions. They will also be used to cross-check your measurements and help you to take them correctly. Please downsize those to fit the 10MB message limit.
Send the digits in cm/inch, keeping the numbering:
3. Waist (larger, than usual, that’s ok)
4. Hip top (on the level of hip bones)
6. Waist to underbust (under the bra cup)
7. Waist to bottom of the belly (covering the belly, but leaving you the ability to sit)
8. Waist to hip top (at your side, between #3 and #4)
9. Waist to breast center (nipple level)
10. Waist to top edge of the corset through the cup (highest point)
11. Waist to top edge of the corset, center front (lowest cleavage point)
12. Waist to top edge of the corset, side (comfortable to your armpit)
13. Waist to top edge of the corset, back
14. Your full height
15. Bra cup size (please mention, US/EU/UK etc.)
23. Strap length (measured between top points of #10 to #13)
