For those of you who’ve wondered to what degree the corsets ordered from this web site will be customized, they’re made to order by style, size and material. That means, you select the corset style you like, the corset size (3-5 inches smaller than your natural waist measurement) and material (fabric or leather). Before clicking the ‘Buy Now” button for your selected corset, be sure to download the male or female measuring chart on the “Measuring for the Right Fit” page, found under the ‘Before you Buy’ menu, and fill it out completely. To ensure the best fit, record your measurements to the nearest half inch. When your order is received and processed, your provided measurements will be double checked. While in the production stage, those areas around the top and bottom of your corset will be adjusted to fit your chest and upper hip portion to provide a snug and proper fit overall.
For completely custom made-to-measure individual corsets, where a custom pattern is drafted to your detailed measurements, there is a 25% additional cost. This is suggested for those requiring a one-of-a-kind design or a custom fit for an irregular or not-so-standard body shape. Muslin mock-ups are available, and highly recommended, for remote fittings. These mock-ups cost around $110 plus shipping for underbust and overbust styles and more for corset dresses. Mock-ups are a helpful tool to ensure a perfect fit and to finalize an individual pattern before expensive material is cut.
