Lace Embrace Atelier has a small production line in Vancouver, Canada, that produces pre-made corset styles of our most requested or popular corsets. Lace Embrace started out making everything to order completely custom. There was such positive feedback with our garments, it was only natural to create a size run for most bodies (sizes XS – 3XL). We carry these corsets in a size and colour run and are available for purchase right away in our storefront and online.
All corsets are made with spring steel boning imported from France with firm cotton or cotton linings essential for corset-making. Many of these designs are well-suited for waist training and give great tummy control, waist shaping and back support. There’s no question that you will feel the difference in one of our corsets.
We are not fast fashion, we make supportive garments with patterns that fit many different bodies well. All patterns started off as an antique corset pattern and have been modified to work for the modern silhouette. As we make all of our corsets, we are also able to modify or take in corsets to fit your body’s needs. Booking a fitting to meet at our storefront is the best way to see and feel how the corset fits on your body and where alterations can be discussed.
Lace Embrace corsetieres’ provide a full service fitting at our storefront and will work with your comfort level. All corset-lovers are welcome in our store and we are a safe and inclusive space. There is no charge for a corset fitting, however, if one exceeds 2 hours of our time, a fee may be required if no corset is purchased.
Important: We do not tolerate harassment of our staff, whether it be inappropriate comments or sexual harassment. Please show the same respect to our staff as we show to our clients.
We recommend calling ahead of time and booking a fitting to make sure we are available to see you at the storefront. Our atelier can be quite busy and we may have bookings with other clients.
Any alterations needed for a better fit cost extra and are priced based on an hourly rate, so costing is based on time. Alterations may take up to two weeks to complete depending on studio hours and how many other orders we are working on. If you require alterations under short notice, a rush fee may be considered. Our sewing studio is separate from our storefront and is not available to the public.
Add-ons such as lace trims, corset flossing, detachable garters, modesty panels and bust enhancers are not included in the price, but we are happy to dress and personalize your corset however you’d like. There are also other ways to bedazzle your classic corset and we’re happy to show you examples from our portfolio.
