CORSETS - HISTORICAL


We introduce this page to memorialize the history of modern-day corsets and corset companies with which we have been affiliated in our business since 1990, and also to present a few stellar examples of the corsets of yesteryear.

We also include with high regard and certain sadness, two former ROMANTASY team members who have passed on, Michael P. Garrod of True Grace Corset Co. and Ruth Johnson of BR Creations. These two individuals are among the very few who paved the way for the rebirth of modern-day interest in corseting. Mr. Garrod's lovely lavendar sequined Lily corset and posture collar are modeled right.

From our inception in 1990 until 2010 with Ruth's passing, both individuals educated us about corsetry construction, use, and quality. They each ignited our curiosity about and passion for this magical garment. They taught us well about serious waist training. Each former corsetier has countless corset enthusiast friends around the world, and thousands and thousands of fortunate clients who now own a treasure if they own a True Grace corset or a BR Creations corset. We solicit your photographs of their corsets if you happen to be lucky enough to own one.

Some former team members whom we remember here, have moved on to other important professional or personal endeavors, yet remain valued business associates or personal friends.

We also use this page to feature lovely and educational images of authentic antique corsets in our personal collection as well as images that have been gifted to us or images now in the public domain. The corsets pictured are not for sale.
