Samples, Gently Used Corsets & Merch


On this page you will find corsets I have handmade, or corsets that I have previously purchased for review and now am trying to sell to clear up space. Each piece has an asking price, but we can negotiate up or down from there. Please email me for any questions or purchase.

MODIFICATIONS/CUSTOMIZATION OPTIONS FOR GENTLY USED CORSETS

Although I won’t do alterations to make a completed corset fit your measurements, you can request to have other modifications made such as:

  • Exchanging flat steel boning or plastic boning with spiral steel ($20)
  • Adding trim or flossing (inquire for price)
  • Suspending/stiffening the modesty panel with bones is $20, or plastic canvas is $15.
  • Adding adjustable hip ties to a double-boned corset ($40)
  • Modifying an overbust into an underbust (inquire)
  • PLEASE NOTE THAT APART FROM THESE MODIFICATIONS OFFERED, ALL CORSETS ARE SOLD AS-IS AND ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

ESTIMATED SHIPPING FEES

Disclaimer: I’m located in Canada. Shipping cost varies depending on whether you would like surface or air post, with or without tracking, and the size/weight of the corset(s). Underbusts will be closer to the lower end, overbusts to the higher end. Please email me with your country and postal/zip code if you’d like a more accurate estimate.

  • Canada: Xpresspost (4 days max with tracking) is between $10-$18
  • US: Air shipping (no tracking) takes 1-2 weeks, $16-$23.
    Express (max 3-4 days, with tracking) is on average $25.
  • International: shipping overseas by air (2-3 weeks) is often $25-30 for underbusts and close to $45 for overbusts. If you’d like Express with tracking, please inquire.

In all cases, if I get to the post office and I find that the shipping is less than what you paid by over a dollar, I will ask if you’d like a refund of the difference.

*

PAYMENT AND CURRENCY

At this time I only accept Paypal for payment. Its policies protect both of us. I prefer payment in US funds, although if you live in Canada I may accept Canadian funds (please inquire; this depends on how strong the dollar is).

Payment plans/ multiple instalments: Note that there’s been a change in policy for payment plans: Due to non-serious customers wasting my time, I now require a 50% non-refundable downpayment on any purchased corset. All corsets must be paid in TWO instalments (50% downpayment, 50% 2nd payment), or THREE instalments (50% downpayment, then two other payments of 25% each). If you fail to answer emails or cannot make payment, your downpayment will not be refunded.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL – IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CORSETS, I WILL BE HAPPY TO PROVIDE CLOSE-UP PHOTOS.

 

Gently Used Corsets / Dresses

*****

Click the picture to see this dress in action.

“Honey” Red Poplin dress from Trashy Diva (the “twin” to this Ophelia dress by Lindy Bop). I am wearing the Lindy Bop in this photo for demonstration, but the Honey is nearly identical, save for a touch lighter red and one size smaller. See the review here.

The Honey dress still has the tag on – only tried on twice, before I realized how short the bodice is. HAS POCKETS!

Size 4: Bust up to 36″, waist up to 26″, hips free (circle skirt).

Your torso length, from shoulder to natural smallest waist (measured along the back) should not be more than 14.5 or 15 inches long. Your ribcage (underbust) circumference should not be more than 28 inches.

There are some faint anti-perspirant marks on the bottom of the armscye but it should come out in the wash.

Dress only, does not include petticoat, corset (worn underneath), etc.

REASON FOR SELLING: I have a long torso and fuller ribcage; cannot fit this dress.

PRICE: The dress was originally $108 USD. I ended up paying $148 after shipping to Canada and taxes/ border fees. I am asking $54 (half price).

*****

“Mansfield” dress from Trashy Diva, in olive green.

New with tags – only tried on twice, before I realized how short the bodice is.

This is made from a beautiful and soft heavyweight knit with plenty of stretch, except for right at the ribcage where I need the most space. Perfect warmth and color for autumn.

Size 2: Bust ~36″ (has stretch), waist up to 26″ (firm interfacing at the waistband), hips ~40″ (has stretch).

The length of the torso along the back, from the shoulder to where the firm waistband begins, is only about 13.5 inches. It is designed to fit a bit like an empire waist, but the waistband has zero stretch. Your ribcage should be 27 inches or less to comfortably zip closed this dress. The interfaced area of the waistband is 4 inches high.

Total length of this dress, from collar to hem, is about 35 inches.

REASON FOR SELLING: I have a long torso and fuller ribcage; cannot fit into this dress.

PRICE: The dress was originally $159 USD. I ended up paying $202 after shipping to Canada and taxes/ border fees. I am asking $80 (half price).

*****

serinde-outfit

“Oriental Princess” ensemble by Serindë, SIZE 24. See the review here. Modelled a few times, for a photo shoot and for my Youtube video.

Includes haltertop corset, matching full-length trumpet skirt, and lace shawl.

Corset: Ribcage 26″, Waist 24″, high hip 32″. Bust “free” (adjustable halter straps). I wore this corset with a V shaped lacing gap and it still looks nice.
Skirt: waistband 28″, front length 40″ (a little longer in the back due to train)
Lace shawl: 50″ long and 11″ wide.

REASON FOR SELLING: I don’t really have any event where this would be considered appropriate attire.

PRICE: The corset alone is normally worth ~$300 USD new. I’m asking $200 USD for the entire ensemble, plus shipping.  Please email me with your country and zip code if you’re interested in this piece, so I can calculate shipping!

    Hello, I really want one of your conical gemini corsets but I don’t know if you ship to Spain.
    How much it could cost?

    • Hello Blackbunny! Yes, I do ship to Spain. The estimated shipping would be $46. I’m sorry it has to be so expensive, but this is what the post office charges! But I do have a flat rate, so any additional items purchased in the same order would not increase the price of the shipping.

  2. Jessica Travis Rumph on said:

    Hello. I really like your page. I would like to wear a waist trainer to help with my weight loss. I would be wearing it while exercising. I have an ileostomy. Would a corset also be good for that? I have no idea where to start. Or even what size I would need. Thank you for any help you can offer on the matter. By the way, you’re gorgeous!

  3. I saw your comment below as to where to sell, after I posted my question. Sorry about that. I can’t do the facebook thing. Once time I tried to sell a used item and instantly I was flooded with ads about it and posts from weird people. I won’t do facebook. Might try craigslist via local pickup. Thanks again.

  4. I have an unused waist training corset, still in package, with tags, mesh, 26 steel bone, size 32, playgirl label. Its a great item,good quality, I know someone would love it. I have it listed on ebay but no one is looking. Any tips about where else I might post it for sale? Thanks!!

  5. LindaRose on said:

    Need to order matching skirt for my Meschantes corset. No response from their website any ideas lease?

    • Hi LindaRose, unfortunately that brand is somewhat known for their poor communication from their website, which is why I generally recommend doing all business through their Etsy shop (they want good Etsy reviews so they will generally work harder to keep their clients happy through there).

  6. I have several orchard corsets very gentle used that I want to re sell . Do you know of any sites I can do that on? thanks

  7. Bessie Ricoarango on said:

    What size are the pink or red one and how much?

    • Hello Bessie, the red corset for sale here is the whole Serindë outfit for $200 (includes corset, skirt and shawl).
      But the pink and red corsets at the bottom of the page are postcards, $10 each – those actual corsets are not for sale, sorry.

  8. I’m interested in buying the Laura Brynes Isabelle dress in black size large. Please contact me via email asap if it’s still available.
    Thank you

  9. Hi lucy.I’m looking for the corset u showed on ur YouTube on october 31st 2012.Do u have it on a medium or large please let me know?

  10. Clarice Theisen on said:

    Hi there – are these dresses still for sale? I am not sure how to proceed from above. thank you!

  11. Crissy on said:

    Hi Lucy!
    Would you happen to be offering payment plans on the dresses you are selling? If not, I am still very interested in your Laura Byrnes California 2016 Monica dress in Red. 😀

  12. Hello Lucy I love your videos on you tube and absolutely love them all great and informative
    I have never done corset training.. and I am very interested when you say that you help out in dividing the payments do you mean
    just for the gently use or the new set as well?

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hello Esthi, yes I can do payment plans on the gently used corsets depending on which corset. For the corset that’s only $30 for instance I wouldn’t bother, but for a corset over $100 yes I would consider it. I had written the payment plan details above (under payment and currency) but here it is again:

      Payment plans/ multiple instalments: Note that there’s been a change in policy for payment plans: Due to non-serious customers wasting my time, I now require a 50% non-refundable downpayment on any purchased corset. Corsets can be paid in two instalments (50% downpayment, 50% 2nd payment), OR three instalments (50% downpayment, then two other payments of 25% each). If you fail to answer emails or cannot complete your, your instalments will be refunded LESS the 50% downpayment (which will not be refunded).

  13. Polearina on said:

    Why are so many of the OTR corsets so tiny in the hips? Is a 10″ natural difference between waist/hip measurements REALLY that odd/hard to accommodate?

  14. Hello! I was wondering, do you know where I can commission an overbust corset that is modeled after the Edwardian Era? Specifically the early 1900’s? I am planning a Titanic costume event and would like an appropriate corset to wear under the dress I made.

  15. Marie Miller on said:

    Hi,

    Thanks for your informed web site.

    I am interested in knowing more about the corsets that you have for sale.

    I live in Melbourne, Australia

    Thanks

  16. Anthony on said:

    Hi im trying to start waist train, because… Im on the rise to becoming a drag queen, adn i really want that Jessica Rabbit shaped body, and know theres a bigger science behind it, but I really want to be curvy instead of being box bodied any pointers or suggestions please come my way. Im 16 but I want to be enlightened in this. And I wear cheap Walmart branded ones. Such as this nude one with metal bones and spandexy material. It only has 7 bones(being that im really tiiny) but I bought another one (black) from there and it only has five. this one you slip on same fabric and material. Is this suitable for training. On top of that I wear like a stretchy belt too small for me to wear so i clasp it on top and figures me, but is this okay? Im sorry if this is alot but i want to be able to do everything correctly and safely. Thank you

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hi Anthony, I generally don’t recommend the stretchy waist cinchers, but as you’re under 18 this might be a better choice for you since many corset makers will not accept a client under 18 (the legal age that you can start body modification – unless you have your parents’ or guardians’ approval). I talk more about age and corseting here.

  17. i m interested in a under the breast corset. I have a small D breast size, My hips are 36 inches. My waist is 35 inches. My funds are limited. Please let me know if you have anything for me.

  18. Merrillee on said:

    I’m just seeing this email about your sale of your used corsets….do you have any more than just this one? I’m wanting to start waist-training but the budget doesn’t yet allow for a fully custom-crafted one…
    Any “50-ish and just-starting out” pointers/suggestions you might have would be very welcome!

    Thanks!
    Merrillee

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hi Merrillee, thanks for your comment. I had more gently-used corsets for sale in the last week, but about 10 of them sold on the first and second days! This is the only one left, currently. However I have some affordable OTR corsets in my other corset shop here, all of these are brand new and have a full refund / exchange policy.
      If you’re close to 50, I would suggest reading through the article on age guidelines (although they’re directed more towards people who are too young to wear a corset). Basically, make sure that your blood pressure is good, that you have strong bones and that you don’t have bladder / uterine prolapse. If your doctor gives you a clean bill of health, you should be good to go.

  19. EILEEN CARPENTER on said:

    I hope you can help me, is there a company I can “try a Corset” from as I really need one as a back brace & I’m very, very long in the torso?! I was looking at your videos, and all these look like they are for short people. I’m 5’9″ and plus size. I would like to use a corset rather than the horrible back brace I have now (it really is not helping my back as much as it should.) It’s not adjustable as a corset & very hard to get on. I was seeing the mesh corsets today & since I’m always way too hot, they look like something I could use. I live out in the sticks so it is hard for me to shop in a nice store. Thank’s for your time. E

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hi Eileen, as far as I know, there are no corset brands that allow you to “rent out” a corset before buying – but most have return / exchange windows so if you buy their corset and you don’t like it, you can send it back for refund. I go over those return / exchange policies for various OTR companies on this page.

  20. Samantha C. Willis on said:

    What I would give to get another one of amy’s corsets, as a former client & college student-I will miss this once in a lifetime custom wasp that I will never be able to recieve again. Whomever recieves her cosets through the auctions, you have aquired a piece of history much missed in the community. Take care of the corsets ad you would a child.

  21. That Morgana Femme 1331 is in my wish list , is so pretty but if is long for you definitely is longer for me. I guess that I have to buy it from their website and ask if they can cut it a little bit shorter.

  22. Is the blue one still available?

  23. Tori Brown on said:

    I am interested in the red/bronze corset.

    • bishonenrancher on said:

      Hi Tori, thanks for your interest! Please email me (Bishonenrancher-at-gmail.com) if you’d like to discuss further.

  24. Hi Lucy! I am interested in the Corset Connection Valerian 26″ but I am a little concerned about the bust. I wear a 34DDD bra will my bust be to large for the corset?

    • Hi Glenni, thank you for your inquiry! I wear a size 34D (at the time I recorded the video, my bust was about 36.5″) and there was still ample room in the corset for a larger chest. The silhouette is such that the chest is roomy, but flat (not rounded like a bra cup). There is also adjustable lacing in the center front which you can open a little bit for more room in the bust, and/or you can open up the side shoulder straps, and or wear the corset with a 1-2″ gap in the back if you feel you need extra room. This corset seems to be very easy to adjust for different body types and sizes.

  25. Yaxaira McNear-Echeverria on said:

    Hello Lucy. Your corsets are absolutely beautiful! One that catches my eye is the last one from your corset video on YouTube that you have yet to review. I understand that you need to the review first before you sell it, but I was wondering if you could give me an estimate as to how much you would theoretically price it. Thank you!

    • Hello Yaxaira! The longline corsets are usually $120 new, and I was hoping to sell mine for about $80 because it’s in very good condition (I’ve basically been gently breaking it in, but otherwise not putting it through any harsh wear or abuse). Thanks for your interest!

  26. RachaelAnn on said:

    I just wanted to say thank you for being you. Your knowledge and understanding of corsets is invaluable for all of us just getting involved with corsetting, and your willingness to share your vast arsenal of information is awesome. You seem to be so caring, and honest. I truly hope you do well in all your endeavours.
    From a random person with lots of appreciation for you,
    🙂

  27. Are the straps removeable for the white PVC one? Im in love with it but I see the straps trying to kill me

    • Hi Karen, yes the straps are both adjustable and removable using the buckles at the top. 🙂 But to get rid of the buckles you will have to use a seam ripper and pick that line of stitching.

  28. I love these corsets, especially the blue one. My heart dropped when I saw you were selling it because its just so beautiful, but I understand why. Some people are going to be getting really lucky with these amazing pieces and their amazing prizes!
