Get Victorian Goth At Royal Black Shop!

If Lewis Carroll’s mind could be morphed into a physical manifestation, Royal Black’s shop of couture and corsetry would depict it perfectly. Awe-inspiring works of art, these corsets and costumes have as many twists and turns as Wonderland itself.

Royal Black Shop is a cozy haven for the darker minded ladies. Ladies who prefer a mad-hatter styled tea party compared to a home-cooked meal, prepared by a 1950s housewife. Royal Black’s collections are still timeless in their own unique way though.

Pin-up and burlesque loving ladies will still find stunning show-stopping outfits that can be incorporated into everyday vintage wear. Of course, one might have to possess a very off-beat taste to showcase most of Royal Black’s brand of decorative goodies.

Thanks to Barbara, artwork has never looked so wearable!

Corsets are garment tops that are fitted in a way to slim and shape the corset for a sexy feminine aesthetic appeal. They are often made of layers of satin, using ties to weave down the back and tighten them into place. Corsets can be worn with skirts or pants, or even under an outfit as shapewear or with a pair of underwear as a lingerie outfit.

In fashion, particularly styles that channel pin up and retro looks of the 1920s through 1950s, corsets are often mimiced in styles that are made to resemble corsets. An authentic corset is rarely comfortable and often difficult to walk in, and despite looking elegant and charming, is rarely something that women want to wear. Many designers have taken to creating their own variations of corsets, whether they simply resemble the look or are a softer version of the harsh, fitted ties.

all shops and brands

If you’re looking for an online boutique that sells authentic corsetry for your evening wear, lingerie wear or costume wear, there are several boutiques that offer endless varieties of styles in plenty of sizes and prices. Maya Hansen is one of the most widely recognized corsetry shops, with nylons, gloves and pasties to accessorize. Her styles are worn by pin up models and burlesque dancers who are into the authentic, well-fitted look. Versatile Corsets, Fairy Gothmother Corsets, Bibian Blue, Sugar Kitty Corsets, and Miss Katie Korsetts are all popular shops that offer custom made varieties. Whether you’re looking for light, airy and feminine styles or fierce, punk and gothic styles, there are custom shops available that will make the perfect corset right down to each inch and piece of thread.

Pin up, retro and burlesque aficionados often have corsets included in their styles. Almost no burlesque dancer goes onstage without the perfect corset, and any woman who wants to add a curvy, feminine look to her lingerie attire has a custom made corset or two thrown into the mix.

If you’re voluptuous and curvy, don’t go thinking a corset isn’t for you. Custom made corsets are made in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, so the right designer will have no problem creating a corset that fits you and your curves perfectly.
