2. What are your exact shipping costs?

Shipping fees are determined by the weight of your order. After adding products to your cart you'll be able to estimate shipping for your specific location. You'll also be able to see the price difference for expedited shipping.

Look for this option on our check-out page.

3. Where are you located? Can I come in to shop/pick out a corset?

We're located at 12001 Oak Knoll Dr., Austin, TX 78759.  Walk-ins are welcome but to ensure you get a proper fitting it's best to use our scheduling tool and actually book an appointment: Schedule a Fitting!

We have the same selection at our store as shown on our website.  It's best to browse our corsets online before your fitting but you are always welcome to come in and describe what you're looking for and we can help narrow down the selection for you.

4. What is your return policy?

You may return or exchange your corset within 45 days of purchase.  Corsets must be in new condition. You can find our general return and exchange policies here.

We know how challenging it may be to order the correct size so we'll cover shipping costs back to you on your first exchange (US retail customers only). Customers are always responsible to ship corsets back to us. We do not provide call tags or pre-paid return shipping labels except in the event of an order mistake on our part or a manufacturing error reported within the regular 45 day return and exchange period.

5. Do you ship discreetly?

We use either the provided Priority Mail or Express Mail box for all USPS orders and a plain brown box for UPS orders.

Our return address does say Timeless Trends. If you'd like for us to substitute our name with Shipping Department please let us know during check-out in the notes field.

6. Can a corset help me lose weight?

Along with a healthy diet and proper exercise, corsets have been shown to assist in weight loss for some people by constricting the stomach and making you feel full sooner. As with any lifestyle change, results will vary from person to person and cannot be guaranteed.

Always consult your physician before starting a new diet.

7. Do you offer custom corsets?

Not yet. We've set the industry standard for affordability creating quality off-the-rack corsets. We plan to expand our collection soon and offer custom corsets.

Wholesale customers:

We have additional styles only available to our wholesale clients. After logging in with a wholesale ID you'll see a wholesale category appear in our left side menu.

We also offer custom corsets in bulk. If you have a fabric, or would like us to find a specific fabric for you, we can create an entire line for you. For more information please contact us.

8. Are corsets comfortable?

Yes, a good quality corset like ours is comfortable for most body types. It will fit snugly and is very supportive. Our corsets are made with flexible spiral steel stays so they actually conform to the natural curves of your body. They won't give you that uncomfortable poking feeling that occurs with corsets of lesser quality.

9. How do you take your measurement?

Please see our sizing page for complete details here.

10. Do you offer additional laces or ribbons for your corsets?

Our corsets come with the lace or ribbon shown in the photo. We do offer additional laces and ribbons that may be purchased here.

11. Are certain corsets more durable than others?

No! We laminate the outer layer of fabric to the inner layer of high quality cotton twill. Most of our corsets actually have two layers of cotton twill.  Either way the outer layer whether it is tough leather or soft satin will be just as durable under normal wear.

12. How do I wash my corset?

We recommend dry cleaning only. You may spot clean your corset with a damp cloth without harming it.

13. May I dye my white corset another color?

We do not recommend dying any of our corsets except our 100% cotton Dyeable Corsets and modesty panels as they are crafted with dyeable cotton and threading.  

14. What methods of payment do you accept?

During check out you'll have the option to choose to pay with a major credit card or PayPal.

16. Are the model's outfits for sale as well?
