BadlyBehavedBetty's Shop Policies


After almost 15 years of working in my families bridal business, hand crafting custom made gowns, I turned my hand to making vintage/rockabilly inspired clothing after struggling to find original items in my size which suited my style.

I work full time from my spare room in a lovely little village in Yorkshire.

Everything you see had been hand made by yours truly and is made either as a one off or in very limited quantities in order to retain individuality.

Badly Behaved Betty was officially launched in 2011 and I am glad to say, has been very well received.


Our mission in life is very simple, create well made dresses and accessories, from high quality materials at an affordable price

We don’t do gimmicks or pinup girl logos here at Betty HQ
We are all about you and your inner pinup girl; we’re all about helping you find your very own Badly Behaved Betty regardless of your size, shape, style or stature.
