About

How the madness began and where its heading

You maybe asking where the name Battie came from well I will tell you, the little purple bat guy that you might have seen floating about. I maybe shouldn't admit to this but while doing my exams I used to scribble him on the corners of my papers.

Dictionary Definition:
Batty - Adj. battier, battiest, battiness.
Crazy, Insane, Odd, Eccentric, from bats in the belfry. ​​

Fun fact: Willam Battie was a English physician who published in 1758 the first lengthy book on the treatment of mental illness. Which was aimed at ill treatment that was occuring at Bedlam in the Victorian era and proposed that more tailored management of paticents entailing good food, fresh air, and interacting with friends and family would be much more benifical.

After many years of being self taught designing and creating alternative fashion I took the leap of opening Battie Clothing in late 2009. I had become disheartened with the corsets I had seen as I knew they could be so much more. Corsets are amazing garments of clothing, they can give you an amazing hour glass figure and is the only garment that gives you that loving hugged feeling. A corset to me is my canvas which I then can let my imagination run wild on. Over the last couple of years I have been refining my techniques and designs and have plenty more running around my head just waiting to be made. However at the moment I am steping back from corsets for a while to focus on the expanding range of lingerie harness, garters and clothing. With the idea to expand into many other avenues. My ultimate goal is to one day have my own little Victorian terrace where the dinning room is my studio where I can invite customers for fittings and inspiring people to collaborate on new and excited ventures.

Battie Clothing was made for people who love to stand out from the crowd and pave their own way, so even the little wallflower can stand tall and command the room when they enter. Influenced by Victorian fashion, literature of Edgar Allen Poe, H.P Lovecraft, Anne Rice etc, dark fantasy artists, to streetwear and alternative clubs to just nature itself. A little bit of everything goes into the mix and let the alchemy happen. ​From ferocious to feminine to everything in between battie clothing is for everyone who doesn't fit in and doesn't want to follow the colony.

Thanks for reading my crazy babble, I hope you will join me in the next weird and wonderful chapter of Battie Clothing

I love seeing all my customers rocking there Battie Clothing creations so remember to tag me on instagram #battieclothing

Faqs

~ I do take on custom orders? Yes

~ Can all items can be made in other colours? Absolutely

~ Where is the underbust? Directly under the breasts, wear your bra band sits.

~ Is the underbust the same as my bra band size? Not necessarily. as bra fitter sometimes add 2" to that measurement. So the best policy is to take the measurement yourself or get someone to help.

~ Can I purchase a harness as a gift? Of course you can. As a rule of thumb:
26- 28 inches = small
30 - 32 inches = medium
34- 36 inches = large
38 - 40 = xLarge

~ Can I get a gift card? Yes just send me a message to discuss


I hope you are having a fantastic day and thank you for reading :)
