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.

[expand title=”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.

[expand title=”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.

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!

  1. hi, i was wondering what if i bought a corset i loved dearly in great shape but i had lost weight and its completely closed is there any way to tighten the corset again or shorten the waist so that i can continue to use it to train my waist smaller?

    1. Hi April, it is usually more trouble than it’s worth to take in a too-big corset – I discuss the reasons why in this article on when to alter your corset or let it go.
      However I’ve shortened a few corsets before, and it’s not too bad – it took quite a few hours, and I had all the tools and equipment needed to do it, which made the process easier. I show the process from start to finish in this video!

  2. I am 55 years old and I have osteoporosis. I am four feet eleven inches. Is it safe to wear a corset that is for gentle waist reduction of less than five inches.

    1. Hi Mona, I would get the green light from your doctor before going forward! They will be able to let you know how much your osteoporosis has progressed, and whether they would recommend a mild waist reduction, round rib, conical rib, etc depending on your situation.

  3. I’d love 2 copies of the red and 2 copies the pink post cards signed on the front, problem is the button doesn’t work for me:( I have Paypal. Please email when you have time.
    Love your work.

    1. Hi Nikita, thanks for your comment! I’ve just sent you an email. :) Speak with you soon!
