    The attention to movie & comfort quality of the cage skirt is worth the price. No Amber Sweet costume is complete without it! This skirt comes with a large zipper (blends well on backside) for easy on/off access. I had concerns about the straps squeezing my thighs but they have some give so I was able to walk & dance comfortably. Also, it’s STURDY; after tons of movement, not a stitch out of place.

    Seller responded quick and communicated well. I was in a time crunch and she helped make sure I had a quality product in a limited time. This piece will definitely catch eyes, so be prepared lots of for photo requests & compliments. Highly recommend!!

    This cincher was amazing. The pattern matched up perfectly and it's such high quality work. It fits perfectly and inspired a whole crazy comic con look. Highly recommend this seller!

    This corset is amazing. I customized it with an overbust and could not be happier. It's been a hit at the comic con and feel like a hot, zombie-lovin' fan girl. Highly recommend this seller.

Corsets to Cosplay and Everything in Between

It began when her mom taught her to sew at age six. Now, Lauren Matesic of Castle Corsetry has been an award-winning designer for the past decade. After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising and training at Farthingales Corsets, Lauren broke through as a designer for the world-famous Trashy Lingerie. There, she designed custom corset and costume orders for superstars such as Kim Kardashian, Julianne Hough, Holly Madison, and Rose McGowan, as well as some pieces for major award shows.

Since launching Castle Corsetry in 2009, Lauren has designed and built hundreds of corsets ranging from compact waist cinchers to full fledged waist-trainers in all materials from silk to leather and everything in between.

At Castle Corsetry, we only use the highest quality materials, and the European steel bones are the best on the market. Though she does create classic corsets, Lauren’s most popular designs are her pop-culture corsets featuring geek inspired designs from the nerd world’s favorite fandoms. Castle Corsetry occasionally vends at conventions, so follow her pages for the latest news!

In addition to her corsetry work, Lauren has designed and manufactured many custom costume orders, including her specialty in expertly tailored spandex suits. There’s nothing Lauren can’t do with fabrics, whether you need miniature costumes for puppets with her business partner at Fonco, to elaborate couture items for masquerade balls and weddings. Executing dozens of commissions for every major convention across the country, she has now made a name for herself in the cosplay world. You can see some of her designs on geek-culture celebrities like Team Unicorn, Ivy Doomkitty and Adrianne Curry!

There's no project beyond her skill and no design beyond her imagination. As a geeky girl herself, Lauren's enthusiasm for her work is what sets her apart. Her dedication and attention to detail makes her designs truly exceptional. There isn't a finer, quirkier costumer around.
