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.

Our friends at the V&A (Victoria and Albert) museum in London this week announced a new exhibition starting later this month entitled Hollywood Costume. The exhibition illuminates the costume designer’s process in the creation of character from script to screen including the changing social and technological context in which they have worked over the last century.
Kate Winslett as Rose DeWitt in ‘Titanic’, 1997, costume designed by Deborah L. Scott. 20th Century Fox/Paramount/The Kobal Collection
Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly from the 1961 Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Costumes on show range from the early days of cinema, from the black and white days of Chaplin through the very glamorous years of the late 1940′s, 50′s and 60′s with the likes of Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) and her little black dresses in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, through to recent films like Pirates of the Caribbean and Twilight: New Moon.
We blogged the Little Black Dress back in August, but didn’t really emphasise that it is the must have essential in every woman’s wardrobe. Since the 19th century it has been a staple in wardrobes worldwide, and once Vogue featured Coco Chanel’s jersey black dress in 1926, it has never really disappeared from the fashion catwalks. And not just the catwalk. You can find an image of most celebrities wearing their version of the Little Black Dress in some publication or another.
Here at FairyGothMother, we like to offer all the essentials, so here are three of our latest Little Black Dresses in different styles…
We even have some Little Black Dresses in Cotton and Tafetta in our Last Chance to Buy sale at real bargain prices. Ideal for that Christmas party, or any special occasion!
As we approach the end of summer here in the UK, our thoughts start thinking towards the end of the year. Yes, Christmas is only 16 weeks away, and those Christmas and end of year parties are even closer! If our summer didn’t really happen this year, we know the end of year parties most certainly will, whatever the weather. Or perhaps you have your own very special celebration coming up over the next few weeks and months?
Either way, you are going to want an outfit fit for the occasion, and what better than the wardrobe staple but ever changing little black dress. With this in mind, we have in the past few days added some gorgeous examples of the little black number to our collection.
We’ve different styles to suit the occasion, black but with that little extra to make it diffferent, and we’re sure at least one or more will take your fancy!
