Corrie does FairyGothMother

Over the past couple of months we've supplied corsets to ITV's Coronation Street, Britain's longest running TV soap, and all we were told is that they were wanted for a wedding episode.

Well now, all is revealed...

The character Beth wears a corset which is an embellished version of our Valkyrie vk-05 overbust corset in ivory for part of her themed bridal outfit.

The Perfect Standby Present - a FairyGothMother Gift Card

It's not always easy to think what to buy a friend, a partner or even a colleague when you want to say Well Done for an achievement they've made. But if you know they love stylish, quality clothes then why not give them a FairyGothMother Gift Card and they can choose for themselves.



We have cards for many occasions from Anniversaries through Thank You's to Christmas Greetings.


They're also great for that last minute present or for when forgetfulness means you don't have time to go shopping yourself!


Corsets Aren't Just For Christmas

But they are really nice to receive! Suggest to your loved one you'd like one of our corsets this year, and who knows!

Our quality corsets are treasured by their wearers,and will last years if looked after. We have gorgeous special occasion overbust corsets through to underbusts that can be worn under clothes, or over, teamed with almost anything and for any time wearing.

See our online Corset collection and more at our London shop.

We need YOU!!!


We are working on a new blog and facebook project and it needs our lovely customers and fans to take part. It will involve a different dress or corset styled ensemble being photographed on one of you, in or near our London shop. We will cover outfits that suit sizes UK 8-20 and we welcome all ages and looks. After all that's the point, to showcase our lovely diverse fan base.

The practicalities...

  • You need not be shy or mind your pictures or video clip featuring on our website and social media.
  • It's likely if you wont be a current bride on the look out for your dress, as this might ruin the surprise for your partner!
  • Our shop is in Central London so you need to be able to get there and have around half an hour to an hour free to dress up and twirl.
(We also welcome enquiries from stylists etc who want to get involved to expand their portfolios)


email us at with the following...

  • Your name
  • Date of birth
  • email and telephone numbers.
  • Your height - don't worry we have outfits for all shapes
  • Your size - i.e high street size, bust, waist and hip measurements
  • A picture of yourself.
We are in the midst of planning the first outfits, so please be patient if we don't not reply straight away.

Time for more of our gorgeous brides

First, Melissa and David. Apart from looking amazing, don't they look happy! Melissa in her FairyGothMother tafetta tea length dress

Corset Fittings and Ordering Your Corset in our London Corset Shop

1. The first step to finding your perfect corset is making an appointment to view them and try some on . It is possible to order them online but you will have far more choices if you are able to visit. If you can't get in to see us then we have a How to Choose your Corset guide.

When you come in you will be properly measured and fitted with corsets that suit your body shape and size. We keep a range of shapes and styles in stock for you to try and this is when you can view the fabric swatches and decide on extra options such as straps or matching items like skirts and jackets. (It is also possible to select an off-the-peg option). Payment is due with the order and delivery takes anything from 6-16 weeks depending on the chosen options.

If you live further away you may prefer to have your new corset shipped direct to you.

Ordering Your Retro Tea Length Fifties Wedding Dress

Fabulous star tulle Fifties style wedding or prom dress. Shown in black tulle over pearl satin, can also be made in other colours 2. Once you’ve made a decision you will need to return for measurements and finalise all the details. At this point you will need to make payment. In the case of a coloured gown or a less expensive one you will need to make full payment in advance. All other orders require 50% in advance and the balance when the dress or outfit arrives.
3. Once the dress comes into stock we will phone and let you know and the balance is now due. If you are local this is the time to come and view the gown and try it on with the correct shoes and lingerie. If the dress requires alterations we will then book you in with the seamstress. otherwise you get to take the gown home.  Pretty 50's style wedding dress with three quarter length sleeves and embroidered floral lace finished with tiny pearl trims
4. If you live further away you may prefer to book your gown viewing and alterations fitting for the same time. Alterations cost extra and are payable directly to your seamstress at the first fitting. You may need up to three fitting appointments depending on the complexity of alterations and you need to allow around 8 weeks for this. Please let us know if you are travelling a long distance and we will try to condense the number of times you need to visit. Alternatively you may prefer to have your alterations done locally and have the dresses shipped to you.
