"I want to thank you for all that you have offered
to the corsetry world over the years!
Corsetry has become an integral part of my life since
I first discovered it in 2011, and I know that
I wouldn't have had as positive of an initial
experience had I not begun with ROMANTASY. My first
corset was a simple black underbust made by Jill
Hoverman, and I remember what a pleasant experience it
was placing the order with you. And your book, which I
refer back to so often, is fantastic. It's wonderful
to have such a thorough and well-researched book on
corset training in the world." --
