Welcome to ROMANTASY Exquisite Corsetry! I'm pleased
that you have discovered our website picturing many
elegant corsets and costumes, featuring fact-based
information and coaching on corset waist training, and offering
a few corset-related art products and accessories.
We've been in business since 1990, and in 1995 provided
the first-ever website on custom corsetry. We are
proud of a major March 2015 website re-organization to
add over 400 gorgeous corset images organized into
29 galleries (click on that button at the top of romantasy.com),
and optimize the
ordering and educational experience at ROMANTASY!
Over the years we have provided
fine custom corsetry to residents of almost every state
in our union, as well as to residents of many other
countries, including Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Argentina,
England, Germany, Holland, Spain, Indonesia, Finland, and
Japan. In 2015 our blog on waist training was visited
countries on 166,000 different occasions!
Since 1995 we have also developed a specialty in
the process known as
"corset waist training" most recently
explored on national television
in October, 2012 by the ABC-TV show
"20/20", with reporter
Deborah Roberts wearing a gorgeous training corset by Jill
reshape and improve one's figure and posture.
While I am not medically trained,
as a former attorney and by virtue of many years in this
specialized business, I have devoted my educational
efforts to facts, not to speculation.
I base my recommendations on
experience including my own wearing of corsets for over 28
years, the experience of some 30 students I've coached
in my waist-training program, about 12,000 clients
who have ordered corsets,
many of whom report back to me over the years,
plus about 1000 other corset wearers here and
abroad whom I have interviewed or with whom I have
discussed corset waist training in some detail.
Details in my two books on the topic have been professionally reviewed by over
eight physicians, two nurses, and my Kaiser Hospital
physical therapist (M.A. level) -- most of whom actually
wear tight-lacing, steel boned, back lacing corsets.
For those of you who don't know me, I like to say I'm a
"recovering attorney," one who discovered that indeed,
there is life after law! I practiced civil trial law for
sixteen years, the last six with the California Attorney
General's Office in San Francisco. Although I loved my
clients, the employment issues with which I dealt, and
the intellectual challenge of the law, I decided I
didn't much like the increasingly hostile environment
and tactics of opposing counsel, nor the dubious
success of my efforts, even if they were mostly wins.
So I decided to move to the positive side of life for a
while, and create a place to explore the many pleasures
of heart, body and spirit through the artistic creations
of corsetry and sensual dressing: in 1990 I opened ROMANTASY
Then I fell in love with the wonderful historical
garment known as the corset. I am now proud to represent
one of the few corset makers in the world with extensive
experience, Sheri Jurnecka, and to own over 75
marvelous custom creations by a variety of makers:
comfortable because they are custom to my body and
because they are worn with moderation--our ROMANTASY
motto concerning corsets and waist-training.
We at ROMANTASY are interested in learning about your
fashion needs and pleasures, and sharing with you what
we have learned. We hope to develop a long-term relationship
with you, as we have with many wonderful customers we
have met over the years.
Thank you for supporting us and sharing our dreams. Come
back and visit whenever you are in need of advice and guidance in
corset waist-training or how to order a fine, custom corset!
Cordially and with warm corset hugs,
