7. Why should I order a bespoke corset rather than an off the peg corset ?
We are all individuals…
Here at Kitty O’Hara’s Corsetry and Couture, we cater for people of all proportions. Many people ask why they should have a ‘custom’ made corset instead of an ‘off-the-peg’ garment.
Off-the-peg corsets are made to standard sizes…But these days, what is a ‘standard’ size? Unfortunately, we find it very difficult to buy off the peg and have it fit perfectly as very few of us are a standard size. By transferring your individual measurements into a bespoke corset, through consultations, pattern drafting and regular fittings; we will ensure your corset will fit like a glove.
Your corset will be designed to suit your individual personality and style
A unique, handmade, high quality garment.
8. Do your corsets have suspenders for stockings?
If you would like to have suspenders added to your corset, please add the required amount in the ‘additional options’ dropdown box on your order.
9. Will a Corset make me look slimmer?
Yes, your corset will reduce your waist by 3-5 inches, or from 5 inches for waist training corsets. They will help create a lovely shapely hourglass silhouette and accentuate your natural figure.
