About Us

Ivy’s Custom Corsetry is a corset building business located in Sterling Heights Michigan where we welcome all clients. We are focused on producing a superior quality, well fitted garment that our customers will wear with comfort and gratification. It is our goal to communicate and educate our customers on the different styles of corsets and the looks that can be achieved with each. If you are a first time corset wearer and have questions please let us help you decide which is right for you.

Inspiration comes from fabrics and historical images. Corsets are made with 3 layers of fabric, steel busk and steel bones – both spiral and flat. Two piece grommets and tubular corset lacing. Detailing sets each corset apart from one another and can range from lace trim, fan lacing, etc. etc. Corsets are made to fit a person’s own measurements, detail specifications, and purpose

My name is Robin Richardson, and as Ivy’s Custom Corsetry’s founder, I started sewing as a teenager; my pastime became my passion. I have been sewing professionally for 35 years and am excited and proud to be able to share my skill and knowledge designing and building corsets.

Many designers have been showing corsets and corset inspired garments on the runway in recent years. I believe my corsets should be seen and not hidden away. Building corsets is a lost art, one that I am passionate about. My heart is in the corset, and it has always been a lady’s best friend.
