Each of our bespoke corsets are custom made from the measurements that are given to us by the client. We are happy to do in-person fittings if you are in the Toronto area, but if you aren’t you can send us your measurements online.

Here is an in-depth tutorial of the measuring process you will be asked to fill out to order your corset, or you send us your measurements after your purchase has been made.

 

  • Be sure you are wearing a tighter fitting tee shirt, or tank top. It is also best to wear pants or leggings. If you typically wear a bra, or will be ordering an over the bust style of corset, be sure the bra is unpadded.
  • Begin by tying a string around your waist to mark your “waist point”
  • Always double check measurements.
  • We will always contact you if something looks a little off, and we will mail you a mock up to be sure everything is fitting as it should.

15. AMAB or AFAB bone structure

Bodies that are assigned male at birth (also known as AMAB) or female at birth (AFAB) tend to have different bone structures, rib and hip shapes, and proportions.

In order to create a corset that will fit properly, it’s helpful to know whether your body is more likely to fit into an AMAB or AFAB bone structure.
