|1. The first step to finding your perfect corset is making an appointment to view them and try some on . It is possible to order them online but you will have far more choices if you are able to visit. If you can’t get in to see us then we have a How to Choose your Corset.|
|2. When you come in you will be properly measured and fitted with corsets that suit your body shape and size. We keep a range of shapes and styles in stock for you to try and this is when you can view the fabric swatches and decide on extra options such as straps or matching items like skirts and jackets. (It is also possible to select an off-the-peg option). Payment is due with the order and delivery takes anything from 6-16 weeks depending on the chosen options.|
|3. Once the corset, or corset ensemble, comes into stock we will phone and let you know. If you are local, this is the time to come in with the correct shoes, etc.
If you live further away you may prefer to have your new corset shipped direct to you.
|1. The first step to finding your perfect gown is making an appointment to view them. You can request an appointment online.|
|2. Once you’ve made a decision you will need to return for measurements and finalise all the details. At this point you will need to make payment. In the case of a coloured gown or a less expensive one you will need to make full payment in advance. All other orders require 50% in advance and the balance when the dress or outfit arrives.|
|3. Once the dress comes into stock we will phone and let you know and the balance is now due. If you are local this is the time to come and view the gown and try it on with the correct shoes and lingerie. If the dress requires alterations we will then book you in with the seamstress. otherwise you get to take the gown home.|
|4. If you live further away you may prefer to book your gown viewing and alterations fitting for the same time. Alterations cost extra and are payable directly to your seamstress at the first fitting. You may need up to three fitting appointments depending on the complexity of alterations and you need to allow around 8 weeks for this. Please let us know if you are travelling a long distance and we will try to condense the number of times you need to visit. Alternatively you may prefer to have your alterations done locally and have the dresses shipped to you..|
On Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays we offer our customers the chance to book a bridal or corset appointment with us between 11am and 5pm with Wednesday evening appointments possible by arrangement too. You can request an appointment online or call us during shop opening times.

We’ve had a lot of emails and phone calls in recent months about our sale bridal, bridesmaids and prom gowns. We do appreciate many of you live a long way from London and a trip is not economical for you and of course, we understand you wanting to order from home. Here’s why we don’t sell online.
We reduce our samples to prices specifically to clear quickly, allowing us room for new designs. They will have been on display for a season, and likely tried on a few times at least. Aside from the difficulty with choosing a gown without trying it on, we really want our customers to have viewed the gown, and checked it over for any issues. As sale dresses are non refundable it’s really important to us that you don’t make a purchase you later regret.
Here are a few of our current reduced sale items (click on each image to be taken to more detail)…
See our Bridal Collection webpage for more sale gowns.
We hear you say, “It’s only October. Really? We have to talk about Christmas already?”. Well it is only a little over 8 weeks until Christmas and as many of our lovely corsets are made to order, we need at least 6 weeks in most cases, so you need to be looking very soon if you need something for that stocking.
These can be longline, as above, that is one that finishes under the bust and cover the hips. They work really well under garments to smooth out all those lumps and bumps and are especially popular under bridal or eveningwear. Shown here in ivory, they are available in a range of colours and fabric to suit the garment you have in mind.
Or corsets can be shorter, covering less of the middle. They can be worn under garments to cinch the wait, or as above over garments in place of a belt.
Overbusts also come in longer and short styles, see our more detailed how to choose a corset article on how to choose.
Remember we need to time to create your special Christmas corset, book a fitting appointment soon or email for further details.
Left it too late? We keep a large range of black corsets in under and overbust styles in stock all year round, and a selection of ready to buy corsets in one-off fabrics/colours ready to take home.

If you order these exceptions we will email you with a corrected order total for your decision on whether you wish to continue or not.

If possible, make your first appointment 6-12 months ahead of the wedding. You will have a greater choice if you give us lots of time, though some dresses take just 3 months and rush is possible, this will lessen your choices.
Saturdays are busiest, so book well in advance if you need to travel. We’re also open on Sunday, if you want to avoid Saturday. Evening appointments are also possible, but please let us know in lots of time, please don’t call us the day before and expect us to have available staff.
1950’s tea length wedding dresses come to just above the ankle. Shorter Fifties wedding dresses are also available and most dresses can be made longer or shorter to suit. Coloured petticoats are also available to suit your colour schemes.

For the next 36 hours, until midnight (BST) on Saturday 22nd June, your order total excluding shipping will be automatically reduced by the 10%* at checkout.
