Announcement   Welcome to the home of Rue Violet! My turnaround is usually 1-2 days.

All of these items are made in and shipped from Arcadia, Indiana. Items are typically wrapped in pink tissue with a fun sticker, and packed in a white Tyvek envelope for First Class shipping. If you would prefer to ship via FedEx, DHL or UPS, let me know and I can set up a custom listing with the shipping quote for that carrier.

**I have removed the XS size option from most of the listings, especially the garter belts. If you have ordered an XS in the past and it fit, and want to order an XS again, just ask me.

I am happy to include a gift message for you, just let me know what you'd like.

Questions about size? I'll help you find the perfect fit. See the shop banner and the last image on the listings for the size chart.

My garter belt held up my garters all wedding day long. The groom had no trouble removing the garter. Great solution for muscular legs that just don't let anything stay up.

Love this garter belt! As a plus size women it’s hard to find one that works well. This is a great shop with amazing customer service!!! Will buy again.

Applying elastic to the soft Lacy bra. This one is the color Lilac with black lace.
A restock on the sheer back and white meshes (for stockings and more), and a new color to stock: cherries red! It's about time, I know. #lingerie #Etsy #handmade #garterbelt #cherryred #red #sheer

About

Costumes to Lingerie!

I spent 14 years working in professional theatres, mostly in the Midwest. I worked primarily as a draper (pattern maker), and for several years also as a floor supervisor...helping to create a smooth workflow in what can be a crazy paced environment. I had been trained in costume design, so did some of that for other organizations as well.

After getting more than a little burned out, I applied for and received a Creative Renewal Fellowship from our Arts Council, and experimented with fashion design. This gave me the courage to leave my theatre job and become an entrepreneur in 2007.

I mostly earn a living by working with other small businesses to help them create their products. This involves pattern making, sample making, product analysis and a lot of paperwork...but I love it. My own brand is a way for me to exercise my own creativity and design skills, which is why I created Sweet Revenge (now rebranded to Rue Violet) in 2010.

I'm still learning and developing the brand, and if nothing else it is a really great learning experience...

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    With a background in costume design and technology, I had a 14 year career in professional theatre. I now make a living creating patterns and samples, and doing product development for other small businesses.

  • Moo

    Assistant

    Moo is not involved in the manufacturing (he's stuck at home), but he's in charge of Etsy sales when I am not available. He also supervises the crock pot while I am at work. I figure it's the least he can do.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I gladly accept returns and exchanges
Contact me within: 14 days of delivery
Ship items back within: 30 days of delivery
I don't accept cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
  • Custom or personalized orders
  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)
  • Digital downloads
  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
I hope you are very satisfied with your purchase, but if for some reason you wish to return your item, I will issue refunds to a returned, unworn garment in the original condition within 30 days of delivery, minus postage. Contact me about exchanges - I will do my best to accommodate! (Some items have limited qty/sizes.)

Please get tracking information for your return, just in case!

PLEASE NOTE: items purchased through third party re-sellers will not be accepted as returns or exchanges.
Payment
I accept only pre-paid orders through Etsy/Paypal. Any wholesale inquiries should be made directly through the seller.
Shipping
I ship USPS First Class, and it is packed within two days of the order, unless it is a fully custom order. Larger combined orders tend to upgrade to Priority due to weight. International orders are possible as well--just ask me to add that info.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am open to wholesale orders. Please contact me for pricing information. There are no animals or smokers at the studio. :-)
Privacy
As a small business working through Etsy, I can view the contact information that you provide (Etsy buyer name, ship to name, mailing address). I use this information in order to ship your product to you, or to contact you if I need further information regarding your order.

All contacts are made via Etsy convos, unless for some reason I cannot reach you that way. My second choice would be to request a direct email from Etsy (they generally don't share those with sellers, anymore). I do not use your contact information or mailing address for anything further, period. I don't collect it anywhere other than on Etsy (actually Etsy collects it for me), and frankly I don't have the time to devise devious plots to do...well, anything.

I know this is a little flip, but the bald truth is that I just make, pack and ship your orders. Please see Etsy's privacy notice for further info.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I make almost everything to order, so in many cases I can make a color or fabric that is not listed in that specific listing. Depends what I have in my fabric stock at any given time. Just ask!

Sizing details

I have a size chart, but please also feel free to include your measurements with your order. More info always helps.

Care instructions

Almost every item lists the care/content in the description and on a label with the item. The sleep masks do not have care/content labels. They are machine or hand wash cold, air dry.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I ship every order with pink tissue and fun stickers. The shipping envelope is usually a plain white Tyvel envelope, unless it is in Priority packaging. I can add a gift card with a special message if you like!

Wholesale availability

I do offer some items at wholesale, please see my Etsy wholesale account!
