I adore these. So much more comfortable than the synthetic variant; comfy, makes me feel pretty and covers what it needs!

Second order through OrigamiCustoms, the product was made in fair time and shipped quickly, arrived two days ago and tested with extended wear. Spent two days recently that involved extensive walking in warmer weather. The material breathes well as mesh and is secure in function as a gaff. Another fantastic product will always recommend Origimaicustoms

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

Although we do offer a size chart and a drop- down menu to standardized sizes, we encourage you to send a "message to seller" with your sizing information. Only customers who have sent custom measurements are eligible for free alterations.

See our fit guide:
http://www.origamicustoms.com/pages/fitguide/

Care instructions

For all fabrics, wash in cold water and hang to dry. For swimwear, rinse in fresh water after every use and dry flat in the shade. Fabrics have been prewashed in eco-friendly soaps to remove any chemical residue. Lace, Mesh, Fringe, Strapping (as in harnesses, suspender skirt, strappy bras, etc) and Eyelash lace should be hand washed and hung to dry.

Can I have a Different Cut for the Bottoms?

Yes! All swim bottoms, one piece swimsuits and underwear can be customized in cut for no extra charge. Please message me in the 'notes to seller' from the following choices: Boyshort, Moderate, Cheeky, Brazilian, or Thong

All women's undies and swim bottoms can be made in a gaff cut for no extra charge.

See the chart here: http://www.origamicustoms.com/pages/fitguide/

What are the Fabrics Like?

Stretch Bamboo Jersey: Cashmere soft with huge 4-way stretch. Anti-odor, regulates body temperature, sustainably made, antibacterial.

Swimwear/Activewear: 4-way stretch with soft touch. 80% Nylon, 20% Spandex. Some are thicker than others, message me for details

Ribbed Swim/Activewear: LuLu Lemon "Luon". Very thick fabric with slight ribbing and extreme 4-way stretch. Smooths out the body and is extremely flattering. My personal favorite! 87% Nylon, 13% Lycra

Powermesh: semi-sheer "girdle mesh" compression fabric. 100% Nylon

Custom and personalised orders

All items can be customized in size for free. Please leave your measurements in the "note to seller" in checkout.

For changes to existing listings or completely new pieces-I encourage you to send me reference photos or a description. I will let you know if it's something I can make, and provide a cost and time estimate. Please allow at least 4 weeks to have a custom piece designed and made. If we agree to make a custom piece, I will send as many sketches as necessary until we are satisfied.

Are you an Ethical Company?

Yes! Here are just a few examples of why:

-Lingerie is made with Bamboo, a sustainable cotton alternative
-The Swimwear fabrics are sourced from deadstock and local/family owned businesses, or are Made in Canada
-Packaging is recycled /recyclable/biodegradable
-All print materials are printed with waterless techniques and vegetable inks on CO2 friendly, recycled paper
-Items are produced in a highly energy efficient workspace
-All leather is sourced ethically from vintage stock
-I cut fabric in a low-waste technique
-I buy items from other Etsy sellers and local craftspeople to support handmade in every aspect of business
-I accept barter/trade if you live in Montreal
-I transport materials via public transport, bikes and car co-op

Returns

Due to the customized nature, we do not accept returns simply for "change of mind" or if you have purchased the wrong size- so please choose carefully from the size chart posted on each item, or include your measurements. Swim bottoms, one-piece swimsuits, bodysuits and underwear and not be returned or exchanged for hygienic reasons.

Custom orders come with free size adjustments- I will pay for a tailor's bill to have the item altered within 2 months of delivery, or alter it myself. Buyer pays to have the item sent back and I pay for re-shipping (standard shipping only) . Please contact me first in either case.

Standard sized orders are not eligible for returns or alterations.

For all other concerns, please contact me immediately

What About Products Specifically for Trans / Gender Diverse People?

There are some items within my categories that are specifically for Trans/ Nonbinary Gender Diverse folks. But actually, ALL the items can be customized for any body. Please message me to let me know what your body needs!

For Trans Women we offer undies with a wider midsection. The Bamboo styles are good everyday undies, as they are luxuriously soft. Mesh gaffs offer more "tuck" and are better for a discreet, flattened front.

For Trans Men we offer packing briefs, STP harnesses, and packing swim shorts, along with different hybrid binders for everyday or swimming.

Lost Package?

If your order does not arrive within 8 weeks of its expected arrival date, it is eligible for a replacement.

You will only receive a tracking number if you selected a tracked shipping option in the checkout. Standard shipping does NOT include tracking.

Orders to incorrect addresses are NOT eligible for refund or replacement.

About Model Selection

We are asked frequently about the models we choose. So briefly - the main model you see is me. I run a small business with almost 300 products. I do photo shoots weekly , and can't afford models every time . Most products are shot by me, on me for cost reasons.

When we collaborate with models, it is done on a volunteer basis with priority to BIPOC and Trans*/ non binary models . No model is turned away.

We are constantly looking for more models with greater diversity to best showcase our products on a range of bodies . Watch our social media for model searches !
