Shumit Basu designs custom-made corsets under his label Underground Aristocracy. Working in leather, brocade, silk, latex; the material is pretty much your choice. Each corset is sized to fit you precisely— women and men alike. Shumit has come up with several styles, at least one of which will catch your eye.

Shumit is even willing to further customize his signature patterns to your wishes. I wanted a square neckline, no problem. Buckles instead of ties? No problem. Square instead of rounded tabs? No problem.

Working by hand, Shumit is able to make such changes that would be otherwise impossible. And his prices are very reasonable--corsets start at $150 and range to $400 for more complex designs and special fabrications. Soon, the demand for Shumit's work will take off and ready-to-wear corsets will become more widely available. Don't hesitate; he makes all sorts of other custom clothing and gear as well.
