[Updated 2/10/18; elegant Victorian corset with perfect pattern-matching pictured below by Jill Hoverman for ROMANTASY]

  • ROMANTASY is a "high-touch, low-tech" business whose owner Ann, personally attends to each order.
  • Office hours are from 10 am to 5 pm Monday thru Friday, however, holidays both national and local apply.
  • We do NOT maintain a retail location but advise solely on Skype or by email or telephone.
  • Firm delivery dates must be stated in advance to apply.
  • We do not entertain rush orders because we want to ensure top quality that our clients deserve. You will place your corset order directly with the corset maker to whom we refer you, once you have prepared your initial set of measurements and have some idea of fabric, design and color. Please inform us when you are ready.
  • We appreciate your understanding and your patience.

LOSS BY OUR CARRIER OR YOUR CUSTOMS:ROMANTASY and your corset maker are not responsible for delays due to or fees imposed by customs. Regarding customs or post office or other carrier delays or loss, we ask reasonable time (typically a month) to research the facts and submit claims before we commence a replacement order for you. However, we are not able to deliver a replacement order in under three months since carriers typically take that long to return packages to us.
