Since opening our online shop in 1999, followed by our original FairyGothMother shop in London's Camden market and our Lulu and Lush boutique in London's historic Spitalfields area, we have built our reputation on quality and a genuine passion for corsetry and creating beautiful hourglass silhouettes.

Our bridal collection is London's largest selection of retro style tea length and short bridal and bridesmaids dresses and we have customers coming to us from all over the UK and Europe.

Specialising in tea length and retro style wedding dresses our collection includes breathtaking designs for the discerning bride. We also offer elegant evening wear for formal functions to proms to suit every budget.

We are also renowned around the world as purveyors of quality steel-boned corsets, our extensive collection contains something for everyone - from basic corsets for beginners to specialist corsets for more experienced tight-lacers. As you would expect, all our corsets are steel boned, and each item is lovingly created from the finest silks, satins and brocades.

Our friendly and knowledgeable bridal and corsetry assistants will help you select your dream outfit, whether you would like an off-the-peg ensemble or would like to take advantage of our bespoke corsetry and bridal service. From size 6 to 26, we're sure to have something you'll love.
