Inside an ani&ari fitting!

Are you curious about what happens at an ani & ari when there is a corset fitting? Here is a peak at the behind the scenes at our atelier.

Our client Tarah, came by today for her fitting appointment to be measured for her custom corset. She will be attending a Christmas gala this December in New York City and she is looking to create a corset that will be memorable! She was inspired by all the corsets that she has seen on the runways of Europe for Spring.  We are psyched to have her choose ani&ari to make her a new custom piece. We took pictures during the fitting to give you all more of an idea of how the whole design process works! Check out how easy it is to be measured. After we measure Tarah we will sit down and talk about what she is inspired by and the types of fabrics and the notions that will fit her vision for her corset. She loves Alexander Wang so we are thinking there may be some leather involved check back to see what Tarah’s corset came out like.

The lovely Tarah, ready to be measured!

Under the arm is one of the most important measurements!

The waist to lap measurement is another vital one to get, to ensure that our clients can always sit comfortably in their corsets.

Thanks for stopping by! Check back for more inside the studio, and stay tuned for Tarah’s amazing new corset coming soon!!!

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.
