CORSET REVIEWS
I’m probably most well-known for my corset reviews. Let me be clear that I have never approached a company and asked for a free corset. However, I’ve been open about having reviewed ‘gifted’ corsets in the past.  My aim is to discuss the construction, quality of materials, and the silhouette of the corset as objectively as possible. This means I don’t hyperbolize and my reviews are typically neither gushing nor scathing – the quality of your work speaks for itself; I just show it off as clearly as possible. If you are a corsetiere looking to promote your work on my channel, there is a fair chance that my proportions may fit one of your standard samples.

If you wish, I would be happy to review your piece and return the corset to you when done – I do not charge a fee to review/ feature corsets, but I do ask that in the case of ‘loaned’ corsets, that the maker cover shipping fees in both directions. Some corsetieres prefer to create a custom-fit, unique piece to best reflect their skills in my featured reviews. I specify in the reviews whether the corset is standard or custom sized, and by law I add an FTC disclaimer explaining whether the corset was purchased or provided.

 

Once I’ve reviewed your corset, a number of things happen to your benefit:
  • I upload a video review of your corset to Youtube.
  • I add a written version of the review to my website, so anyone searching with the right keywords on search engines will have a higher chance of finding your review.
  • Your marker on the corsetiere map is changed from red to blue, helping your business stand out against the others.
  • Your name is also added to the list on my page “Corset Brands by Price Range” which exclusively features the corsetieres I’ve worked with.
  • Once I resume consultations (which is essentially a personal shopping service for corset wearers), your brand is added to that list of potentials – so if I find a prospective client that would be a good match with your style and price range, I specifically recommend your brand/ direct them to your website (note that the client always pays for the consultation; I take no cut of commissions from corsetieres).

Please get in touch with me via email if you would like me to review a corset for you in the near future.

Reviews of products other than corsets
I very rarely do these, and I’m selective about which products I review – if it is a product that I would consider buying “in real life”, or if it ties into a corset fashion theme (e.g. clothing that compliments an hourglass figure), I may consider reviews and features of these products. Please do not ask me to review products that have nothing to do with my channel (e.g. skateboards or protein powder).

CORSET APPRAISAL / CONSULTATION FOR NEW CORSET MAKERS
You are a passionate corset maker, perhaps wanting to move from hobbyist to professional corsetiere. You want to make a positive impact on the industry, but you are concerned that maybe your corsets aren’t up to industry standard. If you’ve never gone to fashion school, there’s no senior corsetiere nearby to intern with, and the people around you don’t know much about corsets, how can you expect to hone your skills? Who can fairly critique your work? I can.

Having studied well over 150 different corsets now (all different price points and qualities) and having experienced both the corsetiere and consumer side of the industry, I know what fine details are involved in getting your corset construction up to industry standard and making positive impact on the corset community, while not having to sacrifice your unique artistry. In a one-on-one online consultation, I can appraise your work, discuss how you could make your corsets stronger or make your finish more pristine, and be sure that you are pricing your corsets fairly. I can also give pointers on how to focus on a certain demographic of customers, advertise your corsets appropriately, and make sure that your corsets are delivering what you claim.

For this service, I do not desire any TF* exchanges – corset makers can send a sample of their best/ current corset style, plus a fee for my time and services. The corset will be returned to the maker in saleable condition after analysis and our Skype consultation. After the consultation, should the corset sample meet a certain bar of standards and only if the corsetiere is comfortable, I may suggest the option of publicly reviewing the corset on my channel to bring more attention to the maker’s work. Email me for further details for the corset appraisal and new corsetiere consultation.

OTR CORSET DISTRIBUTION/ WHOLESALE
This is for new, standard-size corsets for consideration in my main Shop. I am picky about the brands I support, promote and distribute, and I extensively research any company that approaches me to distribute their products. Currently, I am only set up for drop-shipping (particularly within the US). If you are a company looking for general online distributors, or looking to expand/create a Canadian base, please contact me for further discussion.

ADVERTISING ON MY SITE/ AFFILIATE OPPORTUNITIES
If you are a company (particularly corsetry, cosplay, and vintage fashion-based) interested in advertising on my site, there is a good chance I will consider your business. Since my site is very niche, the quality of my viewership is very niche as well, creating a streamlined potential client base for you. You may provide your own ad design (we can discuss size and location specifics) or I can create one for you. Monthly, 3-month and 6-month rates are available, as well as advertising in exchange for an affiliate link/ commission. Please contact me for further details!

CORSET, HAIR OR COSPLAY MODELING
Although I do occasionally participate in photoshoots, I am not a professional model by any stretch of the imagination. I do absolutely no nudity and no fetish work; this includes zero hair-playing or hair-cutting videos. However, if you are a designer and have a corset or costume for which you’d feel I would complete the look, please contact me with more detailed information. OR if you are a photographer in the GTA looking to collaborate, I may accept gigs under extremely special circumstances, and I will always bring an escort/ assistant.

Once again, for any and all forms of collaboration, contact me via my business email here. Best wishes, and I look forward to working with you. 🙂
