Cypress Corestry is the result of years of sewing with my mother, a seamstress and quilter. For me, sewing is both relaxing and rewarding, allowing me to express my creative side while building a functional and beautiful garment. Corsets are for me the ultimate blend of function and fashion. They contour and shape your body using a varierty of elegant designs, perfect as both a foundation garment or something for the world to see.

Corsets are highy specific to an individual's body and require a precise fit. For this reason, I do not offer pre-made or ready-to-wear pieces through my shop. When you purchase a corset featured on my shop, I begin construction immediately upon receiving your measurements and will have your custom-made piece ready in 2-3 weeks. If you want your piece by a certain date I will try to accomodate your schedule, however please contact me before you place your order.

Accessories are available immediately, and will ship in 3-5 business days from receipt of payment.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
If for any reason you are unhappy you may return your purchase for a full refund within 30 days of receipt.

Over the course of several years of wearing, it is normal for a functional corset (one which is used to tightly cinch in the waist) to suffer loss of grommets or in rare cases snapped boning. We will happily repair any normal wear-and-tear to your corset free of charge, at any time.
Payment Methods: PayPal

Deadlines: Payment is due within 5 business days of placing your order, if I do not hear from you and don't have your payment after 5 days I will cancel your order.
I generally ship via the US Postal Service, priority mail. I require that all items ship with delivery confirmation and insurance for the value of the item, in case of delivery failure or damage during shipment.

I am happy to ship with an alternative method or expedited delivery, just contact me when you purchase the item and let me know how you would like your items shipped.

If you are outside of the United States please contact me directly for shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs

1. Why are your corsets listed as "one-size"?
-I do not sell 'ready-made' corsets, as these rarely fit correctly. When you place your order I will contact you with a measurement form, which you should fill out (it's very, very important that your measurments are accurate) and return to me as soon as possible so I can start your custom piece.

2. I found a corset in your shop I love, but I want it in a different color, can I order that?
-YES! I'm happy to make alterations to style, fabric, etc. Just click on the "request a custom item" link in the navigation bar.

3. I really need the item sooner than 2-3 weeks, is there any way I can get it rushed?
-Yes, depending on my schedule. I will do everything possible to accomodate your timeline, but please contact me BEFORE placing your order, as how soon I will be able to complete your order depends on how busy I am at that time.
