Welcome to ROMANTASY Exquisite Corsetry! I'm pleased
that you have discovered our website featuring elegant
fashion and waist-training corsetry, as well as costuming,
and Gender Image Salons for the transgendered community.
We've been in business since 1990, and in 1995 provided
the first-ever website on custom corsetry. We are
proud of our major March 2015 website re-organization to
add over 400 gorgeous corset images organied into 29 galleries,
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 from 169
countries on 166,000 different visits!
Since about 1995 we have also developed a specialty in
the process known as
"corset waist training" most recently
in October, 2012 by the ABC-TV show
"20/20", with reporter
Deborah Roberts wearing a gorgeous training corset by Jill
Hoverman on our inimitable team of corsetieres.
reshape and improve one's figure and posture. While no one
on our team is medically trained,
as a former attorney and over my years in this
specialized business, I have devoted my educational
efforts to facts, not to speculation.
I base my recommendations in corset waist-training on
experience including my own wearing of corsets for 24
years, the experience of some 30 students I�ve coached
in my waist-training program, about 10,000 clients
who have ordered corsets from my specialty business,
many of whom report back to me over the years,
plus about 500 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 book on the topic of corset waist
training 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.
provide intensive, educational Gender Image
Salons to enhance the femme image for the beginning and
intermediate MTF transgender student.
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
the world's finest fashion and tight-lacing corset
makers, and to own over 75 of their marvelous custom creations:
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 from over 100,000 people we have met
in our former retail boutique, and at the lectures and
community events in which we participate, as well as
from countless Internet corset-enthusiast friends and
customers. 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!
