LINKS TO CORSET, FASHION, HEALTH, AND IMAGE SITES
We are pleased to refer you to web businesses or
individuals whom we personally know and trust for the
quality of their product, excellent business ethics, and
longevity in business. We are extremely discriminating
in our listing practices, choosing unique web sites
representing only the best of what's available. We hope
you find that their products compliment or coordinate
with your corset or costume, or that their services
provide useful fashion, beauty, or self-improvement
information. Let us know your experience doing business
with our friends, and if we should add someone else whom
CORSET AND COSTUME RESOURCES:
Farthingales, a resource from Canada for
corset supplies, corset building kits, patterns, costumes,
fabrics, books of all kinds, and information such as
how to set a grommet by hand or machine. We regret that
the Los Angeles outlet closed in fall, 2010, and all goods are shipped
by Vogue Fabrics in Philadelphia. Good prices.
Corsetmaking Supplies, Phildelphia -
Slightly higher prices for corset supplies but excellent,
quick service and phone assistance if needed.
WOMEN AND FOOD:
We are committed to good health first, and here feature
resources that help look at how we make poor nutrition choices, and
how to improve them. Bay Area relationship therapist,
Dr. Claudia Six
(415.453-6218), specializes in advice for women on body
image and our relationship to food. Dr. Six is a former
assistant at our ROMANTASY storefront before we closed to
go full time on the Internet with corsetry.
Because we are committed to the full and free expression
of the individual, as well as compassion and kindness as
the highest human virtues, we are pleased to recommend
the following educators and counselors. Persons of
integrity and practicality, you may feel free to contact
them for situational dilemmas or more complex personal
issues you wish to discuss, or on which you wish
guidance. Some take phone counseling appointments:
