What Katie Did corsets are all made by hand, by one corsetier from start to finish. This means it's really not much trouble to add a frill or waistband to style, and something that we have offered quietly as a special service.
Please Check Your Measurements
The corsets in this section will be made specifically for you, to your specifications, and as such are only returnable for a credit note (unless due to a manufacturing fault) so we advise you only to place an order if you are familiar with the cut of our corsets. Please take time to read the full sizing notes on our Classic Underbust and Classic Overbust pages and check your underbust, waist and hip measurements before ordering.
If you have any queries regarding trims please ask before ordering (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please note that if you choose a contrast colour overboning trim it will look different depending on whether your corset is single or double boned. Please look carefully at the pictures on our Archive page which show both single and double overboning. While the standard cup version of our Laurie (and Extreme Laurie) corsets are single boned, the Full Cup version is double boned to support he breasts, so contrast over boning will be wider.
Small Pattern Amendments
While it is not possible to change the shape of a corset for you, it is possible to shorten the length. For example, if you have a short torso and our Morticia is too long for you, we can take 1 or more inches from the top, bottom, or both. For this service you will need to provide your rib and hip measurements at the top and bottom of your amended corset so that we can check for fit. At this time it is not possible to add inches to your corset.
Amendments Not Available For Standard Corsets
It is only possible to order 'design your own' corset on this page. It is not possible to order a corset on another page of this site and then request changes in colour and trim. If you order a corset from our Classic Overbust, Underbust, Leather, L'Orient, Sheer or Archive pages you will receive the standard corset as descibed and pictured.
Vamp & L'Orient Fabrics
We're in the process of revamping our website and until this is done it's not possible to order our Vamp corset, or any of our L'Orient fabrics as part of 'Design Your Own Corset'.
There is a comments box at the end of the order form where you can confirm colour of lacing, lining and if you would like your modesty panel removed. All of our corsets come with 6 loops to attach suspenders/garters, if these are not required you can request their removal in the comments box. This is also the box you use if you would like the length shortened.
We are currently trialling a more bespoke/custom service for our undebust corsets. If successful this will be rolled out later this year.
When our new site is launched in Spring 2015 you will be able to upgrade to double boning.
Our 'design your own' corsets are made by hand, to your specifications. They generally take 3-4 weeks to make, plus shipping time.
