Inside the ani&ari studio: Grommets Edition

One of our favorite parts of finishing a corset, is embellishing the busk and grommets. When we want something other than silver (which is the way the come) we get a little creative with combinations of nail polish…

Our plain grommets (left and right) and a simple busk (center)

We used a white polish by Essie for the base coat of the busk, then covered the top in an OPI sparkle. The grommets are covered in an OPI blue sparkle.

For this fabulous pink linen, we chose to paint our black grommets with a matching pink sparkle by Sally Hansen.

Be sure and check back for more peeks inside ani&ari!!! We’ve only just begun 😉

Inside the ani&ari studio: Measurements

A lot of people have no idea how much work really goes into a custom ani&ari corset. We have decided to do a weekly post showing you the process of making a custom corset, and some of our favorite secrets.

They key to making a custom corset, starts with custom measurements. Clients are always shocked to find out how many measurements we use to create their custom garments. Despite what magazines may tell you, you cannot categorize a woman’s body into the three common types. In the same breath, they also say that no two women’s bodies are exactly alike. After measuring hundreds of women, we have come to find that this can’t be more true. The comfort and fit of a garment made to your specific measurements is what sets ani&ari apart from the rest. Corsets have a bad reputation of being incredibly uncomfortable and restraining. If you were to purchase one off the rack at any given store, you are going to find that it will in fact, be uncomfortable and ill fitting. We pride ourselves on taking these important measurements and creating corsets more like sculptures, taking into consideration fit, comfort, and beauty.
