Ready To Wear Victorian Underbust Is Here!

I’m excited to announce that I have released a ready to wear Victorian Underbust corset! It’s the same overall shape and style as our bespoke Victorian Underbust, which is the most popular for every day wear. It’s versatile, and can be worn in many different ways, under the clothing, or as part of your outfit. This RTW Victorian Underbust pattern is made from compiling many different patterns to find the average of size ranges that can fit a wide range of body types. My focus with Starkers Corsetry’s focus has…

Housekeeping

It has been brought to my attention that there is a company in the UK who has been producing lingerie under the name Starkers, or Starkers LTD, which is in NO WAY associated with us, nor can we  vouch for the quality, or whether it is produced ethically. We are not responsible for any lingerie under this label. Our corsets, clothing and lingerie is produced in house in Toronto Canada, since 1992, never sweatshop produced, or employ overseas production methods. We are in no way associated with Jessica Prebble, Tutti…

Undressed Lingerie

After much preparation, we are just about to launch our mini lingerie line, Undressed Lingerie! After years (two decades, to be exact), of requests from clients to have not only matching bras and panties to go with their custom made corsets, but just some cute bras that can fit any size – very small sizes, very large sizes, asymmetrical sizes, bras for men (oh, yes) and every size, shape and structure in between – we have developed bra pattens ranging from AAA cup to H cups, and no more being sized out…

Mesh corsets are here!

After a fair bit of experimenting, we are now offering mesh corsets! This is a great, lightweight alternative to our regular corsets. These are single layer of super strong corset mesh, with reinforced silk bone cases, and floating modesty panels. The mesh is available in black or white, and unlimited piping colour, and decoration options. This option is available in any of our corset styles or custom styles. We will be offering in the fall, built in bra cup options for the sheer corsets. Book your custom design now! Here is our…

FashionArtToronto 2015

We have just come down from our 9th year at the amazing FashionArtToronto event. We presented our 2015 Bridal / Formal line. Our line this year focuses on elements of fashion from the Edwardian era, when fashion first became fashionable in Toronto, which was growing fast as a cosmopolitan city. Clothing was manufactured in Toronto factories, and created by personal dressmakers and tailors. Attention to shape, detail and embellishments were featured in women’s clothing, in this time post-Victorian era fashion, before the shorter hemlines and looser shapes of the Roaring…

Corsets for Fitness and Figure Competitors

Corsets for Fitness and Figure Competitors About a year ago, for fun, I acquired my personal training certification, as I’m almost as obsessed with fitness as I am with corsets. I wanted to learn more, and I learn best by observing and teaching. Over the past 12 years, I have spent a lot of time around fitness people, competitors, instructors, and I’ve been lucky enough to learn from PhD’s in exercise physiology and nutrition. I have learned a lot, and I’m hoping to teach people a few things too. This…
